RobotStudio event

Operator screen to control 4 variables at a given coordinate on a grid.

Options

We want to be able to set a single point in the center of a grid.

Using that center point, we use offsets from there to get the positions we want.

The program data we want operators to be able to access for a given point on the grid is:

·         Timing of spray head

·         Pattern of spray head

·         Possible waittime

·         A Boolean to determine if we use the position or not (used for the screen maker later on)

-36in to 36in with a resolution of 0.5in for two axes creates 20736 routines and 82944 variables.

Ideally, while the robot is running, an operator can press a grid point (picture of grid) with the pendant. This gives them opportunity to change one of four variables.

Is there a more compact way to code this? 

Is it necessary to create this many variables, in order to store everything for later use?

 

Ex:

CONST robtarget centerpos:=[[-490.16,1517.62,1804.67],[0.262408,-0.265629,-0.646938,0.664872],[1,0,-1,1],[9E+09,9E+09,9E+09,9E+09,9E+09,9E+09]];
