Which KUKA RCS version?

Re: Step by step setting up of RCS Module in PS

8.3 r11

Re: Step by step setting up of RCS Module in PS

There is document inside the RCS zip, under docs, which explains how to install the RCS and the license.

Re: Step by step setting up of RCS Module in PS

I know, I've read it. But I can't activate the Module. The message says that the name of the Module isn't correct. I suppose the name which is in rrs.xml file in ..\Tecnomatix\eMPower\Robotics\OLP.

My version of rrs.xml is:

 

<?xml version="1.0" standalone="yes" ?>
<Data>
    <ControllersData>
        <Controller Name="Kuka-Krc">
            <InstalledVersions>
                <Version Name="krc8.3_r11">
                    <ModuleName>C:\rrs_bin\rcs_krc1\krc8.3_r11\bin\rcskrc1.exe</ModuleName>
          <!--ModulePathName is not mandatory in PS-->
                    <ModulePathName>C:\rrs_bin\rcs_krc1\krc8.3_r11\bin</ModulePathName>
                </Version>
            </InstalledVersions>
        </Controller>
    </ControllersData>
</Data>

 

What's wrong with it?

Re: Step by step setting up of RCS Module in PS

hi,

 

the "rsckrc1_tune.exe is missing!!!

 

download from ftp:

 

settings in rrs.xml:

 

you have to change the file path to yours.

In this way it should work.

Hello, Patrick,

 

Thank you for advice. Would you please show the whole rrs.xml? I still can't figure out if it should be another <ModuleName> block or the same.

Re: Step by step setting up of RCS Module in PS

ila, your rrs.xml is correct except that it should point to rcskrc1_tune.exe instead of rcskrc1.exe (this last one is for Robcad)

Re: Step by step setting up of RCS Module in PS

Hello again!

After troubleshooting the license issues I'm back to setting up RCS Module.

In User Manual they wrote that it's mandatory to import following customization: eMPower\InitData\RoboticsCust\RoboticsCust.ppc. I've found this file, but I can't find the information how to import a customization. Can anyone help?

Re: Step by step setting up of RCS Module in PS

Hi ila49.
Go to File -> Project Managment -> Import ebop customization and browse to the "RoboticsCust" customization folder (under your empower -> Initdata folder).
The folder should include a few icons and a .ppc file which will define some controller related classes in PS.
Make sure all your eMS connections are closed before importing the customization (no open projects).
Kind regards,
Gal Snir
