Here are the other 2
So I gave it a go and the controller doesn't give an error but the programs do not run.
It just goes to END.
I've uploaded a picture of the main job and will upload a picture of the 2 other programs right away.
Thank you guys!
I will give it a go!
Thanks for the quick reply!
I can understand the part between NOP and END.
Could you clarify the above or is this just as an example and not useable data?
I'm trying to run two programs simultaneous.
One with a turn table S1 and one with the robot R1.
The goal is that the (welding) robot goes to it's cleaning station while the turn table gets in position to save time.
I'm using the Pstart command.
the turntable program is made in group S1
the robot program is made in group R1
However, if I make a test program were i put two Pstart commands for either job it does not work.
Nor does it work when I use the Pstart command for one program inside the other program.
Does this have something to do with the sub1, sub2, .... tasks?
Could someone give an example of how to put it in the controller.
Thank you all in advance for the help!
Can you start-up in maintenance mode?
Great thanks for the answer!
The reason why, is that I would like the robot to send an output when the running hours reach the
point that maintenance is needed as a reminder.
I know you can look it up but it's just a question
Are timers sufficient enough for this purpose?
I'm working with a yaskawa YRC 1000.
I was wondering if it is possible to send an output signal when the running hours reach a certain value?
Thanks all in advance
Another option is to run a simple program before production starts and try to view other jobs while running. I will give it a go myself but it probably won't be before tuersday...
Not that I know of, you can make a backup to usb of the jobs and load them into motosim or open them in notepad to have a quick overview... meanwhile the production can go on as normal.
When you locate the problem you can fix it true the pendant with a minimum of production los...
PS. maybe mark the thread as solved so others know that there is a possible sollution.
When we use "remote mode" on the Yaskawa robot, it means that we
can remotly start and stop the running of the robot.
For example: the operator uses an self made controller with a start, pauze en safety button.
Not the pendant to start and stop certain programs.
This is however connected to the X18 board of the robot control unit.
I believe that you want to view programs from your office (or another location)
than that the robot is at?
This is possible when you place a module in the control unit of the robot like secomea.
These modules allow you to connect remotly.
You can than use the motosim software to vieuw programs and such.
There is probably an easier method but not that I know much about...
In our case it was for the CN307 module...
Hello Mr. Czarli,
My appologies for the delay.
In our case the module apperently was not activated.
We did the following to make it work:
startup the dx100 in maintenance mode (press main menu while turning the main switch until you
here a small beep)
- go to system - security - management mode
- go to system - setup - I/O module (select)
- press enter x2 until it jumps to #st 19 and press enter again
- a popup wil appear asking "modify?" --> select yes
- a new screen appears (allocation mode) should be "auto"
- press enter new screen #20010: 14 0 0 0 5 YIU02
- press enter new screen #30010: 14 0 0 0 5 YIU02
- keep pressing enter until the popup "modify?" appears again.
- select yes: you will hear a small beep
- the I/O module is now ready to use.
Hope this helps...
On the key you have 3 settings.
turn it completley to the right and you are in teach mode.
This means that you are in control of the robot and can stear it with the buttons on the pendant,
build programs etc.
the middle position is play mode.
Before you go to play, you select a program (in teach mode) then switch to play, activate the servo's
and push the big green button on top of the pendant.
The program will now run full speed (keep safety in mind).
The left option is remote mode.
This means that if you have an external play, pauze or other connections, you will be able
to let the program run by using this external (self build) controller instead of the pendant.
This is how I use it, that doen't mean its totally correct
We are having a simular issue for CN307.
We also tested everything we could without any result.
On thursday there will be a technician here from YASKAWA.
If we can find a fix i will let you know.
(please remind me in case I would forget).
With kind regards
We are using Yaskawa robots and ESAB power sources.
The welding programs are put in with the U82 from the power source and put into the robot program
by just calling the program number.
It's an easy solution when the welder has no experience with robotics.
Also the welding torches from ESAB (TBI) are very sturdy build.
