    This is my first robot with IRC5, so im not to experience.

    When I turn on the Robot in the flex pedant shows this message "connecting to the robot controller" endless, it not pass from there.

    I check the connections and I think is OK.

    The lights of the pc :


    COMM - GREEN Blink

    I connect to the Robotstudio (5.15) in the Service Port with a ethernet cable and I can see the controller, I can see some minor error (update revolver, ...) but I can't open the flex pendant in robotstudio.

    I try a p-reboot but the state is the same.

    1-How can I resolve this ?

    2-why in the robot studio online I can't show the flex pendant ?


    I try the SN14M-20680 CABINET (year 2001) with the robot (14M-20082 ) that uses elmo motor and it works.

    So I now I have certain that cabinet works with elmo motor.

    But if I put the

    SN14M-20680 Robot (year 2001) with the Cabinet of SN14M-20680 (year 2001) -DONT WORK

    or with the cabinet 14M-20082 - DONT WORK

    Do you think is a motor problem or a parameters problem ?

    Do you have parameters for the yaskawa motors ?


    I have a robot irb 140 M2000 (14M-20082 cabinet and robot) and i have the backup parameters and everthing is ok.

    Now i buy another irb 140 M2000 but the cabinet is a different SN14M-20680 CABINET (year 2001) from the ROBOT SN 14M-27317 (year2005)

    With the parameters that I have the cabinet the robot gives a error move.

    When i receive and test the robot when i boot there is no error but when i move the robot only move for a couple of milimeters and then it gives error 50204 (motion supervision triggered for joint irb_3)

    I try with the parameters from the 14M-20082 and the result is the same.

    What do you think ?

    After some tests, and I still haven't been able to clone a disk.

    The strangest thing is that the original disc I try to copy from, no longer work on the robot.

    At the moment I have 4 robots stopped.

    I was checking with (Partition Wizar, Macrium Reflec) and did not find the second hidden partition.

    After reading some forum posts I came to these conclusions (THEORETICS):

    1-I see many comments but they are all theoretical

    2-I have not seen anyone who has successfully cloned a disk (S4c + M2000), I have already seen comments from an IRc5 and successfully backed up with Acronis and AOMEI Backuper and unsuccessfully with Norton Ghost.

    3- I think (S4c + M2000) uses the ABB S4C + VxWorks system "low level", which does not use a organizes type like windows file system

    1. The startup process of the VxWorks system: a section of VxLD (LD or loader) code on the boot sector of the boot disk starts to run, and then VxLD loads the bootrom.sys file in the root directory
    2. Since there is no file system when VxLD boots, bootrom.sys must be the first file on the partition and must be stored continuously.

    4-I don't think there are two partitions, but only one with 2 or 3 hidden files from ABB (BOOTROM.SYS / ..... / ......)

    and that the first file in the system must be BOOTROM.SYS

    5-When I connect an abb drive on windows to make a clone, windows change the order of that file and from there it no longer starts on the robot.

    6-I doubt that you'll be able to clone it with a windows machine, let alone through a SATA adapter.

    I'd recommend that you go on a scavenging hunt and dig up the oldest PC you can find, one with native IDE, and then run either linux or dos and do a raw (bit for bit) copy of your existing (functioning) drive / module.

    7-I was going to try this kind of software:

    but i have 4 robots stopped, before i do, can anyone have expeirence and help me?


    (I ask you to correct me if I transmitted any wrong information)


    I made more tests after a read more in the forum.


    "You can get a new flash drive from ABB with the basic files loaded. Or (I don't endorse this) ghost your old drive to a new flash. The flash is set to FAT already. You can use Norton Ghost or similar. Then use Robinstall to install the new system. Perform a full backup first if you can to a floppy or USB.

    You can hook up a 9pin null modem cable to the MC Console port using Hyerterminal at 9600 baud connect to the CPU. Reboot the controller. Watch for activity on the PC. Usually you will see sector errors during startup. However, in my experience it is just best to replace to flash anyway."

    After Power, the teach pendant keeps counting ( I leave for one hour) and the result was the same.

    i connect by rs232 and It only shows the message of Amertican board...... and after that there is no more lines

    The status light is RED and the HDD is OFF. ( I think the system can't mounted the hdd)

    As show in the picture.

    The robot that was working and i made the original clone of the hdd, I put the hdd back in the pc (windows 98 and Macrium Reflec ) and I can read all the files are OK.

    I don't think is a bin corrupt image.

    I think that when I connect in the windows the system modified some basic file of the hdd.

    And now the abb robot don't recognize as a HDD.

    What are the basic files of a hdd Robot ?

    anyone had the same problem ?



    I have a couple of robots with a S4c+ M2000 and one had a problem with the disk and I try to clone a Flash drive from another to resolve it.

    After I cloned, the original disk and the clone disk don't boot the robot.

    Now I have the two robots that don't boot.

    I can read the files in the Pc but the robot can't boot .

    The teach pendant show counting numbers .......

    After connecting the flash disk to a Windows 7 PC to perform a backup with "Macrium Reflec" the robot is on the waiting screen and the red cpu led fixed.

    How can I resolve it ?



    I have a Abb S4c+ IRB 140 M2000 and I have several sc4 robots and im trying to connect to a vision camera cognex ethernet

    I study this week about Abb connections and I was surprise to see that s4c+ don't have a simple ethernet connection.
    I can connect ethernet to the service and make a backup. But the other port I can t do nothing.
    I decide to connect by Rs232, but the problem is the camera only have ethernet connection.

    Questions :

    1- The cable for rs232 is null, no handshaking needs ?

    2- In S4c where do I connect the serial port for the rs232 ?

    3- In S4c why is an ethernet port in DSQC 336?

    4- In S4c+, I have a service ethernet for the backup, and the other ethernet what is the function ?

    5- Open socket is only available in IRC5 ?

    6-What is the diference in WriteStrBin / Write ? What do you prefer ? can the hyper terminal reads boths ?

    7- if I connect the robot in rs232, how can I connect to the ethernet camera ? With a rs232/ethernet conversor ?

    8-what is the simplest program and way to test the rs232 connection ?
    -cable null
    -Robot program
    Close pcComm;
    Open "COM2",pcComm\Write;
    Write pcComm,”demo”;
    Close pcComm;
    -Pc - windows hyperterminal

    9-When i connect to hypertminal and run Abb program line by line , each line , a lot of message shows in hyperterminal display .
    Close port - a lot of messages
    Open "COM2",pcComm\Write; - a lot of messages
    Write pcComm,”demo”; - a lot of messages , but the word demo don’t show
    Thats correct ?
