KR10 X11 Diagram
« on: June 04, 2019, 11:52:43 PM »
Working on bypassing X11 on our two new KR10s - attached is a diagram we've put together from all of the sources / information we've received.

That looks right, is it working?
If so, thanks for sharing!

Usually, unless they were treated a bit roughly, they should not need to be mastered. It's still recommended, of course.
To move the robot without the X11, go into a usergroup >= Expert and then activate the Start-Up mode. I believe it's in Startup/Service (but no promises, I'm not at the robot at the moment).
In startup mode you can only operate the robot in T1, i.e. you need to keep the button on the back pressed, even for programs, and the speed is limited.
If there is a plastic bag with 4 blue wires included, you may also need to build that plug, which provides power to the internal Beckhoff EK1100 coupler. You just connect the internal power supply with the internal power connection, unless you want an external 24V power supply. I'm at the airport right now so I cannot give you the X-something ID of the plug - I believe it's X55, though.
Finally, if you are doing the startup yourself, don't forget to plug in the battery. Inside the cabinet there will be one loose cable, which will fortunately only fits into a single plug next to it.

Best,
Johannes

Thanks Johannes!
Battery plugged in, mastering completed, X11 plug built, now onto the Beckhoff EK1100 coupler.
Attached is a noted PDF of the process of constructing the X11 bypass plug...

We don't have a Beckhoff 1100 - this is the Kuka interface. We will make another post of how we did this.
