I had issues with payload. Updating to the latest firmware fixed my issues.

Hi Everyone. Anyone use the new Fanuc CRX robots yet? How does it compare to the CR models? How do you like it? Any problems?
Thinking of using one for a Palletizing Application.
What control panel do you have? I know on a R30IB you will need to see if your Honda connector is hopefully wired to a junction box otherwise you'll have to do some soldering. Or better yet if you have the terminal block option installed you can wire an audible alarm to the terminal blocks. You'll have to do some searching to find more about wiring.
For code this is what you could do.
MAIN (THIS IS YOUR MAIN TP PROGRAM)
CALL CYCLETIME (THIS CALLS YOUR CYCLETIME TP PROGRAM)
XXXXXXX (THIS SECTION IS THE START OF YOUR ROBOT PROGRAM)
TIMER1=STOP (THIS STOPS THE TIMER)
TIMER1=RESET (THIS RESETS THE TIMER SO YOU CAN START YOUR CYCLE TIMING AGAIN)
CYCLETIME (TP PROGRAM)
IF (DI[XXX]=ON) THEN ; (YOU NEED SOMETHING TO TURN OFF YOUR ALARM)
IF (TIMER>15) THEN ;
DO[XXX]=On ; (THIS TURNS ON YOUR ALARM)
I have taken the Handling Tool 4 day class. You get a manual that is ~2 inches thick. We used the R30IB controllers. Instructor was very knowledgeable. As someone who has no robot experience, after the class I was able to deploy a new LR Mate robot from scratch to production in 2 weeks (teach points, setup UOP, BGLogic, wiring, etc). I definitely recommend the class.
CR 7L is about 35-40, ~3 weeks.
Was thinking of going with a Sawyer, but could never find one running in the field. What problems are you having with the Sawyer?
Thanks for the pros and cons.
How is the support from UR and Rethink? Were you able to get replacement parts fairly quick?
You say Sawyer is fragile, did something break and how hard was it to replace?
Do you use any vision with the robots?
Did you also consider a Fanuc CR robot?
Any UR5 users cross shop between the two? I am interested in why one over the other? Let me know what you guys think. Thanks.
Are any of you using collaborative robots? I see several available, Rethink Robotics, Universal Robots, Fanuc, ABB, Staubli, Yaskawa, Kuka, etc.
I'd like to hear your stories and find out which ones to avoid. How is their customer service/support, getting spare parts, and so on.
Let me know your thoughts. Thanks.
