3 external axes setting

Hello.

Some other guys already had a same problem as me. So I looked through documentations TSG_RS36 and 42, and read all topics in here. But I failed to make it work.

Do you have an experience of 3 external axes gantry type station?

My situation is that IRB hangs upside down on a gantry, and the gantry moves X, Y, and Z direction which syncronized each other.

My question is that:

1. First Motor_ axis7( Let say MU20 ) setting was fine. Working well.  (M7C2B1_L1_N8_20.cfg used)

2. For second motor_axis8, I added  "M8C2B2_L1_N5_20.cfg"  selecting EXT.Axis tap.

 ---> system crashed itself. Is it right way whenever I add a external axis, just insert a correct *.cfg file?  In other words,

3 cfg files are needed for 3 MU20 Motors?

I assume that I had something wrong of

1. IRB option miss selected. 

2. using wrong "*.cfg" file.

Please tell me the knowhow how you are usally setting 2nd and 3rd external axes.

    As you can see from the image, 2 axes are used separately. If I use 3 same or different motors,  I think axis 1,2,3 can be jogged like IRB. Is there any special CFG file? How do you set up like this case?  if I make this by using "config Edit", it looks OK but doesn't work in TPU.

    Dear All

    Please try  the station and use your own controller IRB1400M2000.

    I failed to make correct CFG file. MU20 for axis7 & 8 and MU30 for axis 9.  If you solve the problem, please send me correct cfg file and particular robot option if you have.

     

    I appreciate it.

    I solved it by myself. But it's not working in IRC5. How to do it?

    Hello Guys,

    Normally, these kind of issues are set up using a so called AW setup disk, where all external axes, like gantries and positioners are defined. Please refer to the supplier of this equipment for the files.


    If you have a real robot, you can use the AW disk for the VC as well.
