Good day everybody, Recently I have been working on an application using a CB-series UR. I have an issue where the robot tries to pick up a piece using a vacuum gripper, and in the case that the robot either doesn't detect the piece, is unable to pick it up or loses grip on it, there needs to be a way to handle this error case and go, for example, to a safety position or turn on an alarm. The problem is that I have been unable to find a correct way to implement this error handling. The best I could do was to just halt the program execution, but this is not satisfactory for this purpose. Does anybody have any tips on how to interrupt the program, switch to a different case or similar? Specifically, I have been working using the Polyscope pendant and have found difficulty programming anything remotely advanced. Thanks in advance!
innoaloe posted a topic in RobotsSo just for anyone might interested, this past one year Omron had completely acquire Adept Robotics (California based robot manufacturer). The products acquired including all Delta Arms and SCARA (Quattro, Hornet, Cobra), also some Articulated / 6-axes robots (Viper), programmed with the ACE software. Other than that Adept also have Lynx AIV whose name is now changed to LD-Series. Aside from having an already established Robot Controller with by acquiring Adept, Omron also developing it's NJ CPU to control mechanical arms that can be user-built, with condition that it uses EtherCAT based Servo Control. The current version of NJ501-4XXX series PLC supports control over Delta Arms (3-axes + Rotation, 3-axes, 2-axes + Rotation, 2-axes), SCARA, and your usual Gantry XYZ+Rotation robot. If anyone interest to discuss something about those do post here, or maybe create your own thread.
I need to control the robot UR3 universal robots by a PLC Siemens S7-1200. for the momento I want to control the robot by digital signals: satart, stop, but in the future I need to control it by Profinet. Could someone help me to find the solution?? I have a lot of information about programming PLC and HMI, http://www.tecnoplc.com/comunicacion-profibus-hmi-s7-300-tia/ , http://www.tecnoplc.com/parametros-comunicacion-tia-portal-ip/ , but I need help about robot programming... Has anyone some example about how programming this robot?? thank you a lot.
