KR3 .dat file
« on: May 04, 2021, 05:59:48 PM »
We try to activate our Kuka KR3 with Kuka|prc. We have a KRC2 Controller for the robot.
Besides the .src file our robot needs a .dat file. Is there any chance to generate a .dat file with kuka|prc?
Thanks and best regards, Gregor

So that's the pretty old KR3 that looks a bit like a duck? You may need to check the box for improved compatibility with older KRC2 controllers in the Code settings.
But the *.dat file itself just stores some variables, and KUKA|prc puts all data into the *.src file. So if your files are not showing up that may be linked to an invalid project name (e.g. an empty space somewhere). Compilation errors might be solved by the compatibility option I mentioned above, it just changes a single line.
