    Hi

    on the kukavarproxy is "debug" option where I can see all IN/OUT traffic. Is there (C3Bridge) some equivalent functionality?

    When start i see only messages for connection options on C3Bridge window.

    With openshowvar and my Python script I connected sucsesfully with C3Bridge.

    Can You share C3 Control Panel .

    It does not matter at what stage of development C3 is, the main goal is tests.


    I will add new functionalities to my Python project, according to the capabilities of C3 and I will send you the test results.

    Greetings!

    Hi

    I am currently developing a program (python script) that reads g code and sends it as commands to a Kuka Robot . On the robot side, I use kukavarproxy. On the other hand, the same script synchronously reads from the g code the commands for control of the spindle, cooling and manages them through the USB port. Other external devices can be added. In other words, it is not necessary to send commands to the robot, which in turn sends them to an external controller.

    I have had a robot for two months and I am still a beginner in this field.

    Today I saw your project and I will test the possibilities using a python.

    I will be happy if I can assist in the development or testing of your project.


    Best regards

    Hi

    to solve problems try this:

    1. Start pc and go to device manager

    2. On the firs yellow row ( driver for floppy disk) click with right mouse button and select to reinstall driver. I do not remember exatly how to you must proceed in Win95 with the reinstall.

    3. On the next yellow rows make the same

    May be you need to find how to reinstall drivers with google search

    I am glad that the problem is solved!


    I don't know why, but I had the same or a similar problem. A series of startup errors. Most of ini files cannot be read. This happened 10 minutes ago.

    I'm going to get a big hammer to show the robot where the INI files are

    You BIOS setting are OK while PC start whith original EDC

    If you can start another PC (not ROBOT PC) with cloned EDC as second drive

    can you see the two partitions on cloned EDC

    If you can, try whit hdhacker tool to copy only MBR from old to new EDC

    Hi

    Try to start with original EDC

    If start is OK then make a New CLONNING


    You must clone original EDC to NEW one,

    not just one partition of the disk but the whole disk

    Most likely, the boot sector (MBR) was not installed during the cloning. Pay attention to this when choosing the method of cloning


    There is another possibility. Check in the BIOS and select the EDC disk as first boot disk, not cdrom, USB, Floppy

    DS

    I did a few reinstallations of my robot and noticed that when starting the KSS installation without deleting the old one, some important settings and programs are saved automatically. So I recommend this way. Once you have the original disc, you can do all sorts of experiments.

    The original disk of the robot sits in a safe place. I do all the experiments on a cloned disk without risk

    Success!

    I think that problem was solwed

    I hope the original disk is in good condition after wrong connection

    DS please read carefully my post #77

    P.S.

    DS

    After clonning of disk and boot the robot please send a message

    MOM DS

    On IDE EDC HDD the connector is FEMALE (with holes)

    On MB IDE is MALE (with pins)

    MB connector has a control pins ( missed pin on the center of connector) and hole on connector body. In thes way is impossible to connect IDE cable in to wrong position

    https://ak.picdn.net/shutterst…deos/11843180/thumb/1.jpg

    On other side the conector on IDE cable have plastic pin (I do not know the english word for him)

    Searching in google I found:

    DS please see the video....


    And BIG surprice - the IDE connector on convertor HAS safety plastic pin

    When trying to connect to MB - no problem BUT when trying connect EDC disk is possibille to make mistake and connect in wrog way!!!!


    DS

    The EDC disk have a female connector. The CONVERTOR have a female connector on IDE side.

    How he connected the two female connectors. With some adapter maybe


    The convertor has JUMPERS AND SWICH. Set up them acording to manual in IDE to SATA MODE

    DS

    On you post #62 on picture I see under white PCI slot cable on blue slot like IDE.

    What type is that port and cable


    And please unplug EDC from converter and take a picture (close up) on connectors - it is possibile to you connection from EDC to converter at 180 deg? (wrong way)

    Hi

    On #61 DS says:

    "I double-checked converter manual (link in next post). I assume I have to use SATA to IDE converter mode."

    We have IDE (EDC or regular HDD)<->CONVERTOR<->SATA PORT ON MB(main board)

    WHAT We need to convert and what mode must be set on convertor?

    Q1:IDE<->SATA or SATA<->IDE

    Q2: CONVERTOR MODE: 1. IDE TO SATA; 2. SATA TO IDE

    A1: IDE<->SATA

    A2: IDE <->CONVERTOR (CONVERTOR MODE MUST BE "IDE TO SATA")<->SATA on MB

    In this way MB whill recognize IDE DISK(S) ( EDC or REGULAR HDD) like SATA DISK(S).

    If I make a mistake - please anybody to explain my misstake.

    DS

    Please set the mode of convertor to "IDE to SATA" and check BIOS for recognised HDD(S)

    EDC disk have IDE interface and plugged on KUKA main board IDE connector.

    To make a clonning, DS using another PC with SATA only (as DS say) but I can't see on the picture exatly the MB connectors. To connect EDC (IDE) to main bord with SATA we have using IDE to SATA convertor

    But there is problem to setup BIOS to recognize EDC dsiks


    DS

    Did you manage to set the BIOS to see the disks

    On EDC may be you have to change jumpers to change EDC mode (single, primary etc...

    On the SATA to IDE converter is 2 position switch - what is the function of them?

    On BIOS configuratiom menu (advanced mode) try to play with ATA/IDE mode and Configre sata as... After setup make SAVE AND EXIT to restart the BIOS.

    Then start PC and go to BIOS and check for installed disks

    You can start tests with only one disk and then connect the second one


    Be carefull! Which EDC is original (wit KSS) and wich is the NEW. On MB of PC close to SATA connectors must be small text ( Sata PORT num) . This num is on advanced bios menu and clonezilla reported disk


    Hi

    the InnoDisk - The computer does not know that this is no ordinary hard drive. You can clone it the same way you clone a regular hard drive.

    Do you have another computer with two IDE ports and a USB port.

    If you don't have one, you can also clone on the KUKA computer.

    Tell me what you have to tell You how to do the cloning

    Hi

    I'm glad you were able to start the computer.

    First of all stop any trying to start system before hdd clone. The most important is to save current status of HDD. In this way you can start Windows from him.

    As far as I know you do not have installation discs. I mean Windows OS and KSS instalation disks. Therefore You need to clone HDD. You can clone HDD on every IDE HDD if you have one, even old HDD but whitout sectors errors. For future purposes you can buy new SSD.


    Start system whith the cloned HDD. If KSS does not start, reinstall KSS from "D" partition over current instalation on partition "C:" Du not delete current installation.


    To start reinstallation proccess while Windos starts, press SHIFT KEY to stop starting of KSS.

    Start windows explorer, go to d: and find KSS instalation folder.

    Reinstall KSS

    I hope the system starts without errors, but if problems still occur, we will look for a solution. As I have already shared, I have no experience with KUKA ROBOTS, I am currently studying, and if I am wrong, I hope the experienced guys from the forum will share better solutions.


    Even you current HDD is not damaged, making a new one (as spare HDD) is good for the future.
