    Thanks, it means I can create/convert local points in a particular .DAT file into GLOBAL by changing the declaration and by adding the PUBLIC suffix to DEFDAT line.

    There's also the question of where you will DECL these points. It's possible to change their DECL to GLOBAL in the module they were created in (although this requires adding the PUBLIC suffix to the DEFDAT line of the .DAT file), but KSS 8.6 supports the new GLOBAL_POINTS file. I haven't used this, but as I understand it, this is supposed to allow Inline Form points to be created as Global variables instead of locals, and Global points created via ILFs are stored in GLOBAL_POINTS.DAT.


    Hello all, I recently worked on a KUKA robot with KRC version 8.6.9. Currently the robot is in running condition in all three shifts. All the motion points are local. The customer requires all the points to be declared as global. When I tried to convert a point into global by checking the box in the change option, the message appears: In order to be able to change this setting, you must have rights for global TouchUp. I checked the KSS 8.6 manual which states that user rights must be Teach/modify global points, but this function group is deactivated by default. How to activate the function group?

    I am attaching the images of the manual for the reference.

    Also, can this task be done in offline way, like converting all the local points from the robot backup into global using workvisual ?

    Hi all, I am working on Fanuc robot CR15iA with R30iB mate plus controller.

    I/O mapping is done as shown above.

    All is working with PLC.

    At first, 8 GIs were configured, and were working fine. Robot was receiving group inputs to these GIs from PLC. and GI

    We needed some more GI for the programming. In PLC, the programmer increased the allotment and it shows no error. I added it in the Robot (GI8 and GI9), no error. But I don't receive any values on GI8 and GI9 when PLC sends.

    What can be the solution? Is there any memory allotment issue for GIs?.

    Thank you.

    Hi all, I am working on KUKA KR210 R2700-2, KRC4 controller (KRC version- 8.6.7). I need to monitor some large number of DI-DOs using WorkVisual. I can go online with the controller using WorkVisual but how to monitor DI-DO status in the workvisual environment? Thanks in advance.

    These are subprograms, called with parameters in the brackets.
    They are most probably written in Karel, not in TP.

    Figured it out to some extent. Actually, when we write pallet instruction, controller asks for more information like number of rows, columns, layers, width between columns, height of layers and palletizing pattern etc. When we set the parameters, INST_PALLET(AR[1],AR[2],......) instruction appears on the pendant.

    Hi all,

    working on fanuc crx cobot with R30iB mini plus controller.

    Following is the code I am working on.

    1: CALL -INST_PALLET(P[1],P[2],P[3],2,11,75,2,5,6) ;

    2:L PR[5:Cart Approach] 1000mm/sec CNT50 ;

    3:L PR[6:Cart OnPart] 250mm/sec FINE ;

    4: CALL -INST_HAND_CLOSE(1,'GRIP_CLOSE',0,2,0) ;

    5: PAYLOAD[2:Slug] ;

    6:L PR[5:Cart Approach] 1000mm/sec CNT50 ;

    7:J PR[1:Home] 60% CNT100 ;

    Where can I find the details about instruction number 1 and number 3? I tried to search in manuals but could not find INST_PALLET or INST_HAND_CLOSE instruction.

    Any help would be appreciated. :)

    Hi all. I need to open backup of real robot controller in ROBOGUIDE environment, but the software says, " This ROBOGUIDE supports virtual robot V9.10 or before. You need to update ROBGOUIDE to use virtual robot V9.30." Now can I add FRVRC 9.30 version in my already installed software? If yes, where can I get FRVRC file? or should I install completely new ROBOGUIDE software with V9.30?

    The better option is probably to have the PLC reset it through a system input (system parameters, I/O) so you have some control over it.

    If you truly want it to reset to main every time you turn it to auto (very annoying IMHO) you can also set that in the system parameters under controller... Auto Condition Reset.

    Thanks SAABoholic.:)

    You just need to configure your Start button (on HMI) with the System Input (Action: Start at main) ===> when you press Start button, robot will automatically PP to main and Start

    I implemented it and it worked. Thank you very much for the solution and regret for the late reply.


    Hello all, I am working on Mitsubishi robot with CR751-d controller.I am a beginner for Mitsubishi robot. I have few questions in mind:

    1. How to run any program in no step mode i.e. continuous mode in manual from TB(Terminal Box)?

    2. How to give nomenclature to DI-DO of the robot?

    3. In the application I am currently working on, robot IOs are connected to PLC by hard wiring but how to check IO mapping of the robot IOs?

    Thank you.:)

    Hello everyone. I am new to experience ABB robot. I have one question. In the system I am working, PLC is working as a master and robot is acting as a slave. Communication between the robot and the PLC is established by DeviceNet communication protocol. Now when the system is required to run in auto mode, mode selector switch on the robot controller is set to auto mode, motors are swithched ON by pressing the push button on the robot controller. Now the operator needs to tap on PP to Main option in the production window. How to make the PP jump directly to main program when robot is set in auto mode and motors are switched ON?

    Hello friends,
    I have a backup of fanuc robot (ARC Mate 100iC, controller R30iA ). IN that, following instructions are used.
    1: !------------------------ ;
    2: !1ST PASS ;
    3: !------------------------ ;
    4:J P[1] 5% FINE ;
    5:J P[2] 5% CNT100 ;
    6: ;
    7:L P[3] 100mm/sec FINE ;
    8: WAIT .50(sec) ;
    12:L PR[27] 100mm/sec FINE ;
    13: Track SENSOR[2] RPM[1] ;
    14:L P[26] 100cm/min CNT100 ;
    15: Track End ;
    59: MP Offset PR[23] RPM[1] ;
    60:L PR[27] 25mm/sec FINE ;
    61: DO[2:WELD ON]=ON ;
    62: //Weave Sine[1] ;
    63:L P[26] 25cm/min FINE ;
    64: MP Offset End ;

    What is the meaning of sensor search start PR[], sensor search point P[], sensor search end, track end and MP Offset PR[23] RPM[1] instructions? I read touch sensing manual but I didn't find these instructions. Is this iRVision application (because I have no idea about iRVision instructions) ?

    What type of interfacing is done between PLC and robot? Is it hard-wired or any communication protocol is defined like EthernetIP or Profinet?

    Get your fault reset push button input to PLC first and then (if robot and plc IOs are properly mapped) program this PLC input to robot UI 05(Reset) in peripheral inputs of robot. Check the status of UI05 input by pressing the fault reset PB.
