How can I access the Axis Computer?

I have come to the conclusion, that I need to access the Axis Computer, in order to control the speed of the robot.

So now my question is, how do I do that, and it is even possible, when I'm not working at ABB.

Force Control, has the functionality I'm looking for. But It's quite expensive and has a lot of other feature, that I dont't need. 
So basically, I'm trying to make a Force Control Light!

    Hello Svoldgaard,
    could you detail your project to try to provide you with a solution closest to your constraints?

    I have a cutter on the robot. If the robot moves to fast, the cutter can't cut fast enough. Then the robot ends up with a collision.
    I have a feedback, that tells how much power the cutter uses. If the the power goes too high, then I simply wants the robot to slow down.
    Much like the FC speedchange function in the Force Control Option. Just without  the option.

    Do you have multitasking?  If so, you could write a task which monitors that feedback and issue a speedrefresh instruction.

    The speedrefresh instruction is to slow. It takes almost 0.5s to react.
    I need maybe 0.1s or less. Hench the reason why I think I need to access the Axis computer.
  • Sorry for late reply, but I just started using the forum. Could you explain a bit why you can not use the speed restriction parameter in the moveinstructions, I mean V1000, for example.
