    Hi everyone,


    Info:

    I have non to veryless info on CP 16116 and ET 200SP. I have come to know that we can communicate with ET 200SP for additional I/O. MY YRC 1000 has built in CP1616. I would like attach additional I/O to robot controller (apart from the already given 40 inputs and 40 outputs).


    Question:

    Is there any way to communicate between YRC and ET 200SP with/without the help of CP 1616?

    How different is it from the MotoLogix?


    Thanks :)

    Hi all,


    Info

    - Using YRC for some time so to say for case study purposes

    - Digital I/O for the controller are all engaged and want to add additional I/O to the controller

    - Controller inbuilt is the CP1616

    - Planning on using the CP1616 as communicaiton for additional I/O for the sensors

    - Have no Idea how to use CP1616

    - Basically Instruction List is the means of programming, not so familier with PLC stuff (willing to give it a try)


    Question

    -How to control the CP1616 with the controller

    - Does any sort of configuration required:/

    -how to communicate between CP1616 and ET 200SP ( for additional I/O)


    Any help is greatly appericiated:)

    hello.

    I worked with MOTOGSI before. It is a good protocol for take data.

    The GSI_TCP CONNECT is for communication between controller and camera. There are some tags that you must input those same as IP address and port number.

    After a good communication, you can read data from camera via GSI_READ DATA. This instruction have some tags two, one tag for error code, one for take read is done, one is for save data in controller. It usually save in B variable but after receive data you must use a formula for create correct data because the B variables only can take data max 255. For example if the 10 set in one of tags in GSI_READ DATA ,the value save from B10. If the value is more than 255, it go to B10, B11,B12,B14 and after these you must use formula for get main value.

    Maybe I can send you more info for saturday because I am not at office friday.

    hi Asgary64,


    I tried to run the GSI_TCPCONNECT,

    but the controller is unable to connect to pc via tcp/ip, it is showing error value 255 always.

    could you share the program with me.


    any help is appreciated,

    Mr. Pool

    hi everyone,


    Need help :wallbash: in setting up the communication between the pc and the controller using MOTO GSI.


    I tried to follow the protocol from the Moto gsi sample example jobs, but no communication is being transfered in between.


    I ran the program GSI_TCPCONNECT and GSI_READDATA but not response :stupid: is seen from the PC, as the data is stored in the variable from READDATA job and when I recall the variable it always shows error.


    P.S I tried calling yaskawa to get clarified, not much help there:waffen100:.

    thanks asgary64 for the info it helped to understand my problem and find an easier way to my solution and also 95devils for an imidiate respose.


    I found the solution for the problem, remedies of my obstacle that I faced are being discussed following:

    - For all who wanted to know MOTOGSI is for free and can download from http://www.yaskawa.eu.com - service - Robotics software download after registration (I am using yrc1000 controller)

    -After you install MOTOGSI and change the range of variables note to have a 'FLASH ' reset.

    - Make sure that the initial communication between the camera and the robot is done correctly, i.e. GSI_TCP CONNECT ( IP address and the port number can be found in the software provided by the camera or you can set a predefined one ) read the manual V1.33

    - Using the GSI_READ DATA the analog data is read and is stored in the B variable of the communication handle/RetvalPointer and you can recall the function by B[RetValPointer] for example calljob:job MOTOGSI_READ DATA (0,10,B020,50,12) the value is stored in B020 you can recall it by B[B020] in the motion function of the informlist.

    - My main problem lies here the robot was moving but at a very slow pace almost equal to none. SO YOU HAVE TO USE A SCALING FACTOR TO INCREASE THE VALUE THAT YOU OBTAINED FROM THE CAMERA, BY MULTIPLYING IT WITH 0.5,2,5,10,20,50,100,200 or so on as to the value is easily recognised by the robot.

    - If the sensor value is more than 255 you again have to use the scaling factor in the camera software, to make sure that the value is always below 255.

    - In the end if required you have to write a small formula of equation to get the desired motion from robot.


    hope I explained and shared solutions for my problems in an understandable way.

    8)

    I have a O3D300 IFM sensor 8 pole model. It is connected to the robot via Ethernet cable (from which the values/data of the sensor is transmitted).

    The software associated with it, with which I can regulated the kind output I need ( Ex: single value like 0.665 or 600, multiple values like 565 and 606.....but this is just for description).

    My only problem is I am using MotoGSI to access this VALUE of the sensor, and I don't know how to find/read it ( via INFORM code or any other means ?).


    What I have done till know:

    -Try to connect to the camera via GSI_TCP CONNECT

    -Try to read data of the sensor via GSI_READ DATA

    -Now I don't know where the value is stored or saved to access it


    I hope I explained myself correctly this time, thanks in advance.

    data ( it is an analog value) such as 600,560, 656 and so on. Value I get from 3D sensor, via Ethernet port.


    I get the actual position of robot n Z direction minus the values I get from the sensor i gives me the new position for the robot. So basically the position of the robot changes only in Z direction.


    so you are saying, using the DIN I can read the analog data and work on it ?

    Hi everyone,


    My current settings: IFM 3D sensor connected to YRC 1000 using Ethernet cable in LAN 2, and is triggered using normal Dout function.


    Task: This sensor sends a data (example: 0.666, 0.458, 0.567....) and how or where to get this data from the inform (inform function) in the programming pendent or the analoginputs. :wallbash:


    Or any easier way is possible. :help:


    Advance thanks
