Seveal questions in RobotStudio v5.07

Hello all,

I have three questions:

1.The option Connect to controller in Controller menu is alwaays gray,although it didn't affect doing simulation,I want to find the reason.

2.When I use I/O signals to set event to attach a geometry to another place,how to set the moved geometry back to the original position automatically after one path moving?

3.I hope to simulate a gripper open and close when it attaches a geometry.I used to make macro to realize this in RS 3.02.I don't know how to do in RS v5.07.

Thank you in advance!

    1. If you just have imported a library component of a robot you can connect a controller to that library component otherwise it's garyed out.

    For question 2,3 I recommend that you install RS 5.08 where you have VSTA for writing macros like VBA in RS3.2

    You also have a improved event manager with more possibilities

  • 1. To be exact, "Connect to Controller" is available if you have selected (in the object browser) a mechanism (robot, positioner or track) that is not already connected to a controller.

  • Hi,thanks for all the replies.I have another question.

    When I open a new station,no matter I configure a new system or use existing system,there always be a problem as follows:

    There is no library defined for the type'default'.You must manually search for the library.

    If I choose a robot,there will be two robots in the station,and no one could be deleted.If I choose others,such as conveyor(in fact,I don't need this library),I could delete the conveyor and keep the robot.

    When I choose template system,everything is ok.

    Why?

    Hi
    The information about mechunittype is read from the VC and then matched against the information in the file MechunitLibraryMap.xml in the RobotStudioLibraryMapping folder. If there is no match you will get this dialog.

    - What RobotWare version are you running in failing controllers?
    - What Robot Type are you using?
    - Is it just a single Robot?

  • My RobotWare version is 5.07.1023.  My colleague's is 5.08.1009.We both meet the same problem.

    I just use one robot IRB4400_60

    Hi.

    Help to question 2.

    Use undo after simulation and the part will return to the original place

    Best Regards

    Hello,

    Are you using Conveyor tracking or have a Mechanical Unit defined in your MOC? This may be what the "default" object that RS is looking for. I manually select a conveyor from the Equipment library. Conveyor tracking is not supported in RS 5 as of yet.

    Yes,I choice the Conveyor tracking when I built a system.

    Thank you to all!
