Screenmaker:Virtual FlexPendant Load error
This is my problem:
-I need to develop a pick and place program with an IRB4400 robot.
-The robot has three pallets to pick parts from. Each pallet can contain 40 parts.
-When a pallet has been emptied and has been replaced by a new (full one), the worker needs to push on a button (a different button for each pallet), so that the robot is made aware that a new full pallet has been inserted in the cell.
-I cannot know when the worker will push a button; it can happen anywhere in the cycle. As my robot will not have the multi-task option, there's no background task where the inputs from the buttons can be continuously scanned. I will certainly miss the moment when they are pushed, if I try to check the inputs in my main task.
-So I thought about using the screenmaker. I will develop a screen where people can reset the pallets, instead of using physical buttons. I mean a virtual button will activate a bool variable, which will then reset the pallets.
-My whole cell (programs, CAD drawings, paths, workobjects and points,...) has already been developed with a virtual controller in RobotStudio. The real robot is not available yet. I don't have it here in the workshop. I have to program everything in the VC in the first place.
-When I try to deploy a screenmaker project on the virtual controller, I always get this fault message: "FlexPendant Startup Problem".
-I have seen in some posts that I need to add some options to the virtual controller for this to work, but I do not know which options and how to add them to my existing vitual controller. I don't want to create a new controller because I'm already far in developing my current cell. I want to add the options to my current work. Would you have a detailed explanation about how to do that?
By the way, when I try to create a new virtual controller (something I try to avoid) , RS asks me for some "Controller key", and I have absolutely no idea about where I can find this key.
Thanks a lot for your help.
