Communication between PC and ABB IRC5 Compact RobotController
I have a Robotic Arm ABB 120 and a ABB IRC5 Compact Controller. I am able to communicate to IRC5 Compact robotcontroller through Service Port on the controller. However, I want to explore more effective communication method between my PC and IRC5 Compact controller as to reduce the latency. Is there any way to connect and do the file/data transfer from PC DIRECTLY to robot controller through the USB port on the robot controller? Is the USB port on the IRC5 Compact controller is intended for the use of data communication between PC with the robotcontroller? In addition, does anyone knows and can help me with the RAPID programming for the USB-Serial configuration (PC(usb)<--> IRC5 Compact(Rs 232))? I welcome any sort of comment and help. Thanks in advanced!
