Spindle to DeviceNet Connection Guide
« on: July 24, 2019, 11:53:41 PM »
Hi all,

We're preparing to connect a 9kW spindle to our KUKA KR250 for wood milling and we're wondering if anyone is using DeviceNet to control parameters on a VFD or initiate a tool change, etc. I saw a previous post about configuring Beckhoff modules through Work Visual, but nothing on DeviceNet.

In general I'd like to create a guide for setting up a spindle for milling with the KUKA - it seems like something everyone is interested in!

Hello Dante,

A quick search gave me that PDF manual as a result: http://supportwop.com/IntegrationRobot/content/9-Peripherie_Entrees_Sorties/Devicenet/KR_C4_DeviceNet_KSS_83_en.pdf
Unfortunately I'm by now quite good with EtherCAT and a ProfiNet, but don't have much experience with DeviceNet... So a guide would be very welcome!

Best,
Johannes
