Kuka RCS for external axis

Hello

 

What do I have to do for add a external axis to a simulation with rcs KUKA on?

 

My problem is that when I run the path with RCS the gun does't move.

 

Thanks

Re: Kuka RCS for external axis

you need dedicated machine data that include a servo gun axis (from real robot or from your Kuka contact)

Re: Kuka RCS for external axis

I tryed to put the Machine.dat file from a backup,  into a folder MachineDataFiles in the systroot.

 

Two machine.dat, one inside the KRC/Steu/Mada and another inside of KRC /R1/Mada. 

 

But now the RCS doesnt start because erro -56, machine data not found.

Re: Kuka RCS for external axis

You should not do this manually, instead you should use Robot Setup / Load Machine Data facility.

Re: Kuka RCS for external axis

I did it in both ways.. First of all put manually, and after by Load Machine Data. And it did´t work..

 

another ideia?

Re: Kuka RCS for external axis

I compared the machine.dat of robot backup with KRC4 file from KukaFtp, and tryed to see where the line that generates a error of dat file not founded. The line is:

 

INT $EX_AX_NUM=0 ;ANZAHL EXTERNER ACHSEN (0-6)

 

If I put 1 in the axis number, the rcs give me a error.

 

Must I do a external axis configuration before load a dat file?

[ Edited ]

Some backups were missing files needed by the RCS. For instance E1.xml from Config\User\Common\Mada\NGAxis was sometimes missing...

Re: Kuka RCS for external axis

Hi, I have a similar problem.

Where i can get the correct RRS files for Track robots and Servo guns 

Thanks

Re: Kuka RCS for external axis

For Kuka robots you should use tools like SyncroMove or Work Visual to configure Servo guns as external axis.

For Tracks you have to use the machine datas in the external axis folder (e.g. KL1500)

Re: Kuka RCS for external axis

Thanks for the information 

Now where can I download the Mada file for KL1500, I look all Siemens pages and I could found.

Normally the robot is mounted on it is KR420_3330.

 

Thanks for any help
