My question is can you auto select a program using digital inputs from the Q series plc? I know how to write the plc code but it’s how to communicate with the robot to select the desired robot program. For example the cutting machine has 4 programs that you select on the HMI. Each program changes the cutting axis position. Can this automatic selection be done on UR10e?
Also I would like to have a stop/Hold signal for the robot if my cutting
machine has a fault. Is this possible using robot I/o? I’m already using the emergency signals but this is only if the estoppel circuit get activated.
Hope this is clear
There is multiple ways to do it.
The easiest one would be to use your PLC to set the I/Os, and use if statements to select the program
Hi thanks for the reply. See one of my programs. Where would this be written? To allow automatic program selection?
Right after Robot Program. Everything underneath would be under the if statement.
Easiest way to clean up, is to create the if statement and slowly cut and paste inside of it
Ok. So if I assign a digital input per program would I have to
And so on?
yes and no. the entire thing would live inside one program.
As far as I know you cant call and start a different program without custom code (daemon).
do what program one would do
do what program 2 would do
and so on.
