    I was using BLOCK programming to do some testing before writing the actual program. I plan on writing the actual program in AS Language. Maybe my main gripe is that I just do not like the default values for the Multifunction Speed option. Speeds 8 and 9 were set to 10% and Speeds 0-5 were set to 250mm/s, so I confused and kind of pissed when I started stepping through my program and the speeds setting were reversed. I was hoping to turn the option off since I am use to having the option off.

    kwakisaki I am not aware of the robot being an ex-demo robot, and I got it straight from the manufacturer. I appreciate the insight on how to utilize this option. As I mentioned, I am not use to having this option on.

    Alexandru I was wondering if it was one of the OP_functions. Which function is it? My guess is "OP_MLTSPDSET ON -4925", but I did not want to turn off a random function without knowing for sure.


    Aux. 0301 Speed is set up so I can change the speed data with absolute speed, motion time, and percentage of max speed. I would like to change this so all speeds are a percentage of max speed. The operation manual for my F series controller says that this is controlled by the Multifunction Speed option, but it does not say how to turn that option off. How do I turn this option off? Thanks!


    Thanks for the warm welcome!

    I did not have power supplied to the COM pin. Now it works great. I really appreciate the help.

    I also appreciate the XGPIO connection solution recommendation. I am really considering it. Soldering onto the provided XGPIO plug has been tedious, and I am afraid of getting too much heat into the small pins and damaging the plug.


    I have wired in a solenoid into pins 31 (output#1) on the XGPIO connector. When I force O1 On using the teach pendent my solenoid does not activate. I tried measuring the connection on the back of the robot controller to make sure I did not wire anything in incorrectly. I am unable to get any of the output pins to turn on 24V when forcing on outputs at the teach pendent. The supply power pins all show the correct 24V.

    I checked AUX608, and the DIO is set to O1-O16. I have been forcing outputs by setting one of the monitors on the teach pendent to Output Signal and then using the On and Off hardkeys to turn signals on and off. I am looking for advice on what I might be doing wrong. I am not sure if I am just flipping the wrong outputs or if something is setup incorrectly. Any help is appreciated. Thanks!
