What I am trying to find is a signal that is always high after the OS/Controller is turned on (I don’t mean the robot). Simply said, I would need the signal of the green LED on the controller box (“Power Controller”).
I tried to use the existing default Output assignments:
- Low when not running
- High when not running
- High when runnin-low when stopped
- Low on unscheduled stop
- Low on unscheduled stop, otherwise High
- Continuous pulse when running
And also the ones for the Safety Outputs:
- System Emergency Stopped
- Robot Moving
- Robot Not Stopping
- Reduced Mode
- Not Reduced Mode
All of them go LOW under certain process conditions, but in all of them the controller is still on.
Is there a way to bridge the “Power Controller”-signal to an I/O or a Profinet connection? Otherwise, there is no way to know if the controller started properly or died during the production.
Thank you all in advance.
