    Somewhere on the page of apps to which I directed you I think that someone has written an app/interface to do that. I have never used it, and I hope that my memory is correct.

    There will be that and more. First thing when you get the robot is to make a backup, save system parameters too. They will be in the backup but it is better to have a failsafe. You will need to get the version of robotware installed and get a copy of robinstall.

    The S4C+ generation started in the year 2000, so that is probably what you are looking at. If the tables are not coming with the robot, you will get failures. If they were, you could more easily disable those mechanical units.

    Parameters will need to be changed, deleted, and wiring changes as well as jumpering out unneeded connections. Do are search in this forum. It has been discussed more than once. Otherwise, it could be worth sparing you the headache to have a competent technician come do the job for you. Depending on where in the world you are would be helpful if anyone here wants to step up to help in person or make a recommendation.

    That again will be in service menu. Aside from the calibration offsets the is the commutation. There will be a column in which there will be a yes or no for the flag. You will have to set them to true. In that generation of robot it should be 1.5708 commutation offset. Half of Pi.

    Have you yet downloaded the manual referenced in an earlier reply from another user?

    OK, I see. SO you have not even had it running yet doing anything. I think that the best thing to do at this point would be to enter the calibration offsets that you can read. Should be in the Service? menu. Then line up all the rev counter markers. Tip: do 4, 5 and 6 first, you can have it down near you on the floor instead of climbing the robot or a ladder to see them. Then you change to the major axes and line them up. Only thing that I think you can do for the other illegible axes is to fine calibrate those axes. Again, Service menu. After that and any necessary rev counter updates, check the zero position. Enter a MoveAbsJ with a jointtarget that is all zeroes. Use \NoEOffs. Check that the mark are lined up still. Any little sliver off is no cause for panic. It only matters if it is like one motor revolution off, which can be much more noticeable. Make a backup, write down the calibration offsets and guard them with your life.

    Have you read this before?

    Another thing that may be of use to you is the distance function, Dist().

    You can configure the joint angles as analog outputs instead of groups. It is more bit efficient, if you scale it right it will even take care of getting the sign correct for you. And yes, on any network, provided that you have mapped enough outputs.
