Controlling the Robot and attaching a camera.

vsri cupertino

I am new to using ABB robots and have a few queries regarding operation of machinery, I'd really appreciate if you can help me with them:

1. Is there a way to enter the targets into the robot directly, either by using the teach pendant or the robot screen rather than entering the target position in the robot studio. By entering the targets I mean entering the 6 coordinates (X, Y, Z, Rx, Ry, Rz).

2. I have a camera which I want to attach as the end effector of the robot. This camera uses an ethernet port and gets power supply using PoE and has its own software suite for performing imaging operations. Can someone guide me on a way to integrate the camera actions with the robot.

I am using the IRB 120 version robot.

Thanks and Regards,
Srikar. V

    1. You can edit a robtarget data directly with Teach Pendant.
    Then you have to execute a MoveL instruction calling it to move the robot.

    2. What is the camera Brand? Each ones have multiple possibilities to communicate with robot.
