Recommended approach to shut down IRC5 Compact

Joerg_5Joerg_5 Hannover, Germany
I switch off the controller regularly. This means I use the system only while I let students drive and update positions. After finishing any lesson I switch off the system. Is there a recommended approach to prepare the system when I am going to switch off main power?

    Look for advanced in the restart page, then shutdown.  What version of Robotware?

    I have updated my signature. Now it contains important data to my system. RW5.61

    Ah, I see.  Unfortunately, that shutdown went away with 5.60, I think that ABB thought that it was unnecessary.  But it was reintroduced with RW 6.  I think that too many people were unhappy with that having gone away.

    There used to be a 5.6 to 6.x converter in RobotStudio for the license.
    Now you have to request a RW6.xx license from your local ABB office and use the migration tool in RobotStudio to go from RW5.6 to RW6.xx.
