Do i Need the 616-1 PC-Interface to manage 2 IRC5 with PickMaster
Hello ladies and gentlemen,
I have a hopefully simple question, it is about the realization of a project in PickMaster with 2 IRC5 (for 1 IRB360 FlexPicker each), 1 conveyor belt, a vision system consisting of a Basler Scout sca1300-32gc and of course the computer with the Software.
The 2 robots + controllers were bought second-hand from my technical college a long time ago and I am the first person to have to operate them together, as they were previously only used for demonstrations of simple pick and place applications.
As I can't connect both IRC5s via the service port, but only one at a time, I have to use the internal LAN connection (see Fig. 1), right?
However, this does not work, even with a customized IP, subnet etc., I have read that I need a 616-1 PC interface extension for this?
Figure 2 shows the modules activated in my controller.
Now my general question, do I need this 616-1 PC interface to operate a PickMaster line with 2 IRC5 or how do I set up my network in another way?
I apologize for my ignorance, this is the first time I have had to implement something similar and many things are new to me. Therefore, any basic tips are welcome if I am wrong in other parts.
