**UPDATE - RESOLVED**
Found the conflict coming from the PLC. Drives Off bit was being Latched continually and Drives On being Unlatched by those same conditions and giving the START almost like a OneShot deferring the controller to Drives Off state.
It's been some time since I worked with KUKA. I have a question that I hope has an obvious solution and I'm just rusty. . .The automated cell that my KUKA is a part of uses multiple finger swipe devices and light curtains and area scanners to provide the cell safety configuration along with one safety gate. I have noticed that the finger swipe device can be used to healthy the cell, however, I do not get the robot controller to pick up AUTO permissives with that initial reset. It may require one or two more swipes with the cell state remaining unchanged (i.e. still healthy from the initial swipe/reset.)
- Maybe I've missed something in the safety configuration for reset by external device
- The cell safety may not be sending the output from the PLC
Any thoughts or previous threads addressing this same issue? Thanks in advance!
