how do i get write permissions for locked parameters?

Hello,

 

we use Fanuc roboters and I want to change the TimeDistance Condition from 0 mm to 0,1 sec with a custom path template.

 

But every time I write the command

 


    <Action Name="Set TDC" LocationTypes="WELD" LocRange="ALL" Description="">

        <Param Name="TimeDistance Condition" Dynamic="true" Value="0,1 sec"/>

    </Action>

 

 and hit "Apply Path Template Action" i get the error message:

 

You used a complex name which has no write permission: TimeDistance Condition

 

I attached a picture of the error message.

 

I changed the attributes for this parameter in the ...\AvailableColumns\Fanuc-Rj.xml  to

 

        <Column Header="TimeDistance Condition" ValueType="complex" Access="RWX">
          <Display DisplayType="string"/>
        </Column>

 

Before this change I only had read and execute permissions ("RX").

 

Also I want to set a value for the external axis 2 (I guess it is called Ext2 in the menu) for servo guns with this template.

 

 

Is there a solution for it?

 

Best Regards

 

Max

TimeDistance Condition is a complex parameter that requires a specific user interface for edition, therefore it cannot be set via Path Template directly. Instead you can set the individual robotic parameters that, together, form this complex parameter.

To see the name of those individual robotic parameters, you can use "Robotic Parameters Viewer" command.

 

You cannot set 'Ext2' as it is a readonly parameter. However you can set "Servo Value 2" (you need latest Fanuc-Rj for that).

Ok, thanks for the information!

 

We use V7.63 of fanuc-rj, were "Servo Value 2" is not listed, too bad.

 

DO you have an example of the "Robotic Parameters Viewer"? I cant find any information in the Robotic Customized UI Manual.

 

Thanks

Re: how do i get write permissions for locked parameters?

I meant latest version of Fanuc-Rj Teach Pendant (version 1.91).

 

Robotic Parameters Viewer is a tool available on GTAC (license free) under

tecnomatix Planning_Applications Robot_Controllers <version> TOOLS ROBOTIC_PARAMETERS_VIEWER

Re: how do i get write permissions for locked parameters?

Ok,

 

I couldnt find anything in the TP. Maybe we dont use the newest version of it. Where can I find some infos about the version I use? The Headline of the TP-Box says 2.1.4.

 

The second thing is, i cant access the links, there are invalid. Do i have to log in to GTAC?

 

 

Best Regards

Hi,

 

you can login to GTAC using the webkey information included in the license file.

 

Once you will have downloaded the setup and installed it, you wil find in the UI customization a nw command named "robotic parameter virewer". That command will open a dialog showing the robtic parameters of the selected location.

 

Best regards

2.1.4, so you are using Fanuc-Rj-Vw and not standard Fanuc-Rj, right?

 

You will need new version 2.4 that is not yet released.

Re: how do i get write permissions for locked parameters?

Yeah right, ok than there i have to wait for it.

Next year I will check the thing with TimeDistance Condition.

 

Merry christmas and a happy new year!

Re: how do i get write permissions for locked parameters?

So, i'm back at work and had to create a new screenname after getting access to GTAC...

 

First I wish you a great year 2015!

 

Back to business, I installed the Robotic Parameters Viewer and get the full name for the TimeDistance Condition: RJ3_TIME_BEFORE_AFTER_MOTION_OP

 

Instantly I created a new xml in the PathTemplate with following Commands:

 


<Action Name="TDTest" LocationTypes="VIA" LocRange="ALL" Description="">

>Param Name="RJ3_TIME_BEFORE_AFTER_MOTION_OP" Dynamic="true" Value="10 sec"/>
        
</Action>

 

I get the error message:

 

Parametername used, which is not defined in customized motion xml file: RJ3_TIME_BEFORE_AFTER_MOTION_OP.

 

I attached a pic of the errormessage.

 

 

Do I have to change this parameter in the motion or olp template?

 

Best Regards

Happy New Year!

It is not a dynamic parameter but a regular one. Just omit Dynamic="true".
