But after you have reinstalled everything, you can simply activate your project thorough WorkVisual and everything should be back in place!
You will lose all projects that you saved on the controller between the time you created the project and now, but the controller shouldn't be used as a program archiv due to memory limitations anyway.

Good Morning,

I wish it would be the network settings! But I didnt change anything in the network settings. I already called to KUKA Headquarter in Augsburg. But the supoprt engineer which helps me, dont know what "Cross3ADS 2 Abort" is, he also waits for an answer from specialist department. Otherwise he recommend me to run the Setup.exe and move back to factory settings.
It would be kinda hard for us, when we lose additional software.

That is definitely not supposed to happen. With the Cross3 error and the "online services" I would guess that the problem is somehow related with the real-time part of the KUKA. You didn't change any network settings, did you? Otherwise I would really recommend calling KUKA, see https://www.kuka.com/de-de/services/technische-hotline-und-beratung
Have your robot serial number ready!

Hey Johannes,

thanks for your fast answer. Loading a new/excisting projekt wont work. When I try to activate a new Projekt, or a axcisting one, message "OnlineServies_ErrorUnknown" appear.

Hello Otto,

Most likely it's sufficient if you just upload your WorkVisual project again, providing you've still got it somewhere. Or you can try activating a previous project at the controller. Projects can be accessed via the blue-ish button with a robot and a gear on the left side of the smartPad - you need an elevated user group.
That being said it's a good idea to make backups, you can either use the special KUKA backup USB stick, or just create an image of the HDD with an external program.

As your profiles says that you're based in Germany: KUKA offers a very helpful technical hotline that does not charge anything during business hours here, which is probably the fastest way to get help!

Best,
Johannes

Support / Problem with KR C4
« Last post by OTTOOL on October 16, 2017, 08:24:49 AM »
Hey my name is Otto an I study wood engineering.
 
Since a few days we have a KUKA KR 210 R3100 C ultra with milling paket on our campus.
Unfurtunately I rekonfigurated the /r1/Program folder by uploding a big program to the kuka.
I accidentally deleted the /Program folder on the USB-Stick, but I thought it would be okay to create a new one.
So I done this, and pluged the stick into the robot, and started to restoring the files out of the archive.
A message appeared "Rekonfiguration wird durchgeführt".
Since the folder /Program  rekonfigurated I can't move any axis nor run programs.
A frequently shown message on the KCP is "Cross3ADS 2 Abort".
When I start the Robot the KUKA milling interface start, when I go to the main GUI I can't reopen the milling interface. The icon for opening the milling program is grey.

I hope somebody can help me here, if it's usefull I also can upload the log file.

Best regards
Otto

...and I found a white-paper here: https://www.robotics.org/filesDownload.cfm?dl=KUKA_Arctic_Robot_White_Paper.pdf
It also mentions the tolerances and seals - but I think you could still argue for your thesis that a "normal" robot may be converted for that purpose!

Hello Elena,

While palletizing robots are quite common in industry, they are less flexible than your usual 6-axis robot, so I've never used one myself. But from the spec-sheet it looks as if it would "digest" normal XYZABC / A1-A6 code, ignoring elements it does not require. So in order to simulate it, you need to turn your 4-axis palletizing robot into a "pseudo 6-axis robot" by splitting the part of the arm where you would usually have the A4 and turning A5 so that the flange is vertical.
Then just set up your robot like a usual, custom robot with the Custom Robot component. Let me know if you need an example!

That being said, it seems the arctic version does not have any special heating, so I guess (!!! - I may well be wrong) that the main difference between an "arctic robot" and a normal one is the lubrication and extra testing.
It stands to reason that you could also adapt other robots to the cold, so personally I wouldn't limit myself to a 4-axis robot.

Best,
Johannes

Dear Johannes,

Thank you so much for your reply. I understand what you mean by frames manipulation and such. But my the question might be a little bit different.

Basically, I am AA student, I'm doing my thesis in recourse-driver robotic fabrication in Arctic. It our project (in theory, on site) my team is using mentioned Kuka Quantec Arctic due to its temperature and frost resistance which are required for the construction our site.

The project conducts a material system and assembly logic (robotic pick and place), which needs to be tested phisically as a part of a thesis. We have Kuka KR30 and KR60 in our school, so all the simulations must be performed on either one or another robot. Both of them have 6 axis.

So the question is how do we make the transition from the robot we have (Kuka KR60) to the robot we actually propose in our thesis (the Arctic one). Does it make any difference in terms of geometry which can be achieved and such? Does this 4 axis feature put any constrains on the architectural piece we can assemble with the robot?

Best,
Elena

Thank you Johannes! You are the best! I will try designing a rig for max flexibility!
