    Hi, I would like to open the teaching data located in our backups for offline modification of weld parameters (MNU files). As far as I know, most robots (Motoman, ABB, Fanuc) allow you to open & edit programs via Notepad. Panasonic obviously does not. I'm wondering if there are any other options to view these files without purchasing the offline programming software.


    The problem has come back once again as expected. Cycling the power again for the time being cleared the alarm and it hasn't popped up for the past couple days. When it does, I'll be sure to have a look at your suggestions.

    Just to mention the numbers in [...] for the Alarm 1345 were changing occasionally. Started off as [105] then [108] and the latest [104] all for the same alarm Safe Circuit Signal Not Same.

    We ended up having Motoman come in yesterday and solve the issue for the time being. A loose jumper/terminator block on the R2 side of the controller which we hadn't looked at seems to be the cause of the fault. Ensuring that these were fully connected, re-cycled the power with no errors or alarms. This problem in the past month seems to fix itself after some downtime of the cell and controller and then it will run for days to weeks before happening again, so we'll see in the coming weeks if the problem is solved for good. Otherwise if it pops up again, I will definitely try your suggestions.

    Thanks for taking the time to reply.


    We have been receiving this major alarm on 2 of our NX100 cells. More frequently on one specific cell. We have tried various methods to solve the issue such as swapping teach pendants, pendant cables, swapping the I/O circuit board, checking connections to other various circuit boards, but to no avail. It seems that cycling the power is the only way to get rid of the issue and while it works some of the time, other times it has no effect. If anyone has any other options we can try that would be greatly appreciated.


    *Now receiving External axes overrun alarm in addition to the safe circuit signal.
