1. Prerequisities

Following conditions must be met:

- (616-6) PC Interface Module available

- (672-1) Multitasking Module available

- RoboTWareOS 5.13 and higher


- Robot Studio Installation (v.6.04 is recommended)

2. ABB Controller setup

2.1 Check network configuration

Turn on the IRC5 Controller and wait for Menu screen to appear on the pendant (RobotWare v.5 is used within this tutorial):

2.2 Use Robot Studio to Connect to IRC5 Controller

Set your local PC network settings to DHCP, plug Ethernet cable to Service Port of IRC5 Controller and launch Robot Studio.

2.3 Configuring a I/O

2.3.1 Preparation

Assemble cables (tall box on palette with controller), specifically XP1, XP13, XP2 to the bottom side of controller, with their respective connectors on the base of robot.

2.3.2 Setting up I/O

Various links are accessible on panel inside cabinet. These signals are wired throught XS/XP13 connector underneath the cabinet, throught connection in base of robot to R1(2).CP and R1(2).CS. XT6/6.1 signals 1 to 4 are usually used to power your device (4x1mm2) with link to R1(2).CP and connectors XT5.1, XT5.2 and XT5.3 are used to provide signals for your accessories carried by robot with link to R1(2).CS.

2.3.3 Accessing signals in program

Usually a I/O slave is supplied with robotic controller. If not install one inside cabinet and in Configuration - I/O System tab. Once completed a list of device’s Inputs/Outputs may appear in Signals tab. Configure them according to their specific purpose. A example of signal configuration is shown below:
