Robots stops shortly when output is switched off
« on: September 03, 2019, 01:21:53 PM »
Hi everybody. I'm working an extrusions and I try to switch the extruder on and off at different points of my printed geometry. I want to compensate for some lag in the equipment. I switch it off before it reaches the end of the geometry. At this point the robot stops briefly and then continues.
The option for the continuous movement on the output is set to true.
Does anybody have an idea on how to get a continuous movement without the short stop?
Thanks

Hello,

With continuous movement it shouldn't stop, can you copy/paste a representative part of the generated KRL code?

Thanks,
Johannes

Hello,

I just tested it with the most recent release and if you set the Continuous input to TRUE, you should get $OUT_C[8]=FALSE instead of $OUT[8]=FALSE
As a stop gap to test it with your file, you could also just search/replace in the text file.
Just note that the output will be triggered once the advance pointer moves over it, so it could be active a bit early.

Best,
Johannes

Hi,
thanks for this hint. That works as you said. I could easly integrate it with custom krl as well. After talking to KUKA I found the following command which won't be read in advance: TRIGGER WHEN DISTANCE=0 DELAY=0 DO $OUT[8]=FALSE.
Cheers
Tim
