    I am pretty sure we are running SafeOperation but don't see the software packet inside the Modules list. The robots do not have access to any operator stations nor do they come in contact with any area that is close to an operator work zone.

    How do you disable the test in WorkVisual? We have been told it cant be done! Thanks again!


    KSS=V8.2.126

    Yes Skyefire, we get the Safety stop and cant recover until we reboot files or cold start! We removed the smart pad but it faulted about 1 hour after running "headless". Our old service tech said to look into a firmware update as well before he passed, but this was due to a issue we had with Axis 3 dropping calibration all the time and our brake test failure issues. I guess we only updated a few of the robots, from what I am being told! Kuka service replaced the complete harness and this corrected the Axis 3 issue ( Break test is still a problem ).
    Last night we ran with the cabinet door open and we had no issues! The KCB cable is pulled tight with the door closed. We may try to make up a new one (just for S-N-G's). I will have to research type of cable it is, Cat. 5 or 6 and what wire combo in the RJ45. Thanks for your help SkyeFire !
    I wish I had this resource when I started! This is amazing!!! :beerchug: Thanks Mr. Drew from Helix Sys!

    We have a few roll hemming KR 240 R2900 ultra C4 FLR Robots that encounter "Break Test Errors" all of the time. Our team is full of Fanuc experts that don't have a lot of Kuka experience. We can correct by restarting the program or just skipping the axis test. We had a very good Kuka contact but he was very sick and passed recently (R.I.P buddy) and we have not had the chance to meet our new contact. I'm sure to most, this is an easy correction!
    We are in no hurry. It will be a good learning experience for the team to look at different items that could cause this problem! Thanks! Its very cool that you experts take the time to assist us newbies and bless us with your Knowledge! I will post a screen shot as soon as it happens! Thanks again!

    Please :help: : this Kuka Nubie!


    We have multiple KRC4's KR 240 R2900 ultra C4 FLR that shut down and fault out to a "Trying to connect" screen. We have replaced the pendent because its almost like the pendent lost connection. We have to reboot files, cold start to reset the issue. We have noticed that the KCB cable to the CPU is pulled Banjo Tight on all of our systems. Any suggestions? We cant afford any down time and only get two 10min windows along with a 30min lunch to inspect! The line is running 6 and sometimes 7 days a week.


    If anyone can help out in the matter it will be appreciated!
