Hello,

do we have any function or method to allow me to know if the the arm is moving or not.
what I want to do is detect if the robot is moving to deactivate one of the signal which is coming from PLC ( like enter the cell ).

Thanks In Advance,
Elsayed

    Maybe you could send some signal from the robot to the PLC via your program so that the PLC knows when the robot is moving ?

    I am using Ethernet to communicate with PLC

    So if you are using the fieldbus with Ethernet/IP then you can easily monitor the output status bit for whatever output you set up.

    as in below should I unlock safety configuration and what is the default password for that

    There isn’t a default password unless your distributor put it on. If there is no password you will need to set that up in the system settings before you can access custom safety settings.
