Integrating 7 axis on KR150 KRC2 ED05
« on: February 13, 2019, 06:19:03 PM »
Is the a guide on installing a 7th axis, from Kuka or any other sources?

We have krc2 ed05 cabinet with 7th and 8th axis drivers installed.  We have turn table with an A2 servo and drive from a KRC1 robot.  Three questions:

1.  Can I install the KRC1 servo and drive into a KRC2 cabinet?  Or
2.  Can I use the existing 7th axis to drive a KRC1 servo?
3.  Is either scenario above possible?

Thanks.

Hello,

We've got a KRC1 (or 2, but I suspect 1) motor running on a KRC4. It doesn't move perfectly, but the positioning is fine and I've stopped troubleshooting as it's good enough for our purposes.
So I'd assume that it's possible on KRC2 as well. Do you have the relevant connections on the robot and the cabinet?
For the documentation, google for "KSS_55_external axis setup and programming".

Best,
Johannes

Glad to hear to motors are "backward" compatible.  As for connections, we have a cable labeled XM Axis 1 Pos 2/1 and another labeld X81.  They both hook up to 7axis motor.  Haven't looked at where they will go on the cabinet yet.  Any other cables/connections?

Two cables should be fine!
Let us know if it works!

Best,
