Creating from backup - XYZ External Axis
The physical set-up of the system is an IRC5 controller connected to a IRB2400. The IRB2400 is attached to a 3DOF gantry crane. An additional drive module is used to control gantry crane motion. The system is set-up so that a single motion task moves both robot and 4 axes of gantry (X master, X slave, Y and Z). I have attached the backup of this system, with a test program that has been run on the real system with no problems.
The problem I am having is with re-creating this set-up in RobotStudio. I can create the system from backup with no problem in RS. However when I create a new station, I DO NOT get the normal warning to select library file for external axis mechanism:
"There is no library defined for the type 'GEN_KIN'. You must manually search for the library"
So when the system starts up, I only have the IRB2400 with no mechanism representing the external axis.
Any ideas why this might be the case?
I believe some changes may have been made to the MOC file, but I am not sure exactly what these are or why RS does not give the option to select a 'GEN_KIN' model for the external axes. I am using RS 5.09.
