Automan


So guys i'm pretty new to automation in general, so apologies for a probable lame question.  below is part of a code i wrote on a DX200

IFTHENEXP IN#(60)=ON OREXP IN#(5)=ON OREXP IN#(6)=ON OREXP IN#(7)=ON OREXP IN#(8)=ON
    DOUT OT#(60) ON
    ADD D011 4
    ADD D015 4
    DOUT OT#(387) ON
ENDIF

Input 60 (Nok part signal)  i get from an injection machine however i would like to be able to activate it on the machine via the robot, as you will see in the code i used DOUT OT#(60) ON, i know this is wrong as i'm outputing output 60 and not the input 60 signal i would like to output on the machine.

Thanks for your Assistance

Mr. Automan,

I'm also a Newbie but when I read your email, I just want to share some information based on my understanding on your inquiry so you will not be confused.

If the communication of the Robot and Machine is thru EIP (Ethernet I/P), the following applies:
1. When you set OUTPUT from Robot, the Machine or PLC will receive the INPUT.
2. When you set OUTPUT from PLC/Machine, the Robot will receive the INPUT.

Don't be confused on the INPUTS and OUTPUTS of Robot and Machine.
*Robot Output -> Machine/PLC Input
*Machine Output -> Robot Input

When you set the communication of Robot and PLC, make Address Allocation for the PLC and General I/O Allocations.
For me, If I set Output from Robot then I will make confirmation in PLC so the flow between the PLC and Robot will run smoothly and also to make troubleshooting easily.
