RC9 Safe Motion setting - VM-B, VL

Modified on Tue, 01 Mar 2022 at 05:09 PM

The RC9 with the VM-B and VL robots has safe motion as standard. Out of the box, it enables RLS and SS2. Thus, if you want to run the robot in AUTO, you must wire in these inputs to allow the robot to move. You can also disable these functions within Wincaps3, but it requires that you change the settings in Wincaps3, send the parameters to the controller, open up the RC9 safety parameter tool, load your Wincaps3 project data, and then send the data to the safe motion board on the robot controller. Note, the RC9 Ethernet port and safe motion Ethernet port are different and have their own individual IP addresses.

To access the safety parameters under Wincaps3 go to PROJECT > PARAMETER > select Safety under the left column > modify values as needed > transfer safe parameters to the robot controller > reboot controller

After reboot is complete, open up the RC9 safety parameter tool on your PC. The parameters should match what was changed in Wincaps3.

You cannot adjust settings inside of the safety parameter tool. You can only read the settings from the Wincaps3 project data. After opening the project and confirming the parameters, you can send the safety parameter tool data to the controller by pressing CONNECT > SEND PARAMETER

Reboot the robot controller once the transfer is complete.
