Industrial Robotics II

ET 262

Course Description

Prerequisite: ET 162. Emphasizes programming, advanced manipulation, grip load instructions, velocity and acceleration instruction, offline editing, handling errors, and robot configuration. Discusses programming concepts and structures in the C+ programming language, industry-like applications and system integration projects. Emphasizes a hands-on approach to system analysis, critical thinking, solutions to open-ended problems, computer usage, and teamwork. Credit may be earned in ET 262 or SKET 262 but not both. (15-30)

Outcomes and Objectives

Demonstrat robot basics.

Objectives:

  • Follow safety guidelines and demonstrate use of emergency-stops and servo lockout.
  • Properly power up robot controller and demonstrate fault recovery procedures.
  • Demonstrate the abilty to energize and de-energize the robot motors.
  • Locate and identify different teach pendant keys and their functions.
  • Place robot in the following operating modes: automatic, low speed, and 100 percent manual modes.

Perform robot manipulation functions.

Objectives:

  • Understand and define a tool center point using the 4-point, 5-point, and 6-point methods.
  • Define and use work objects.
  • Create and use a user frame and an object frame.
  • Define different acceleration and ramp speed rates.
  • Demonstrate the abilty to change the robot's velocity, acceleration and deceleration speeds for smoother motion.
  • Demonstrate the abilty to use different commands in order to setup an interrupt, turn on or off an interrupt, trap errors, and trigger routines from I/O motion.

Perform programming functions.

Objectives:

  • Use decision-making, register and math, and time instructions in a program.
  • Use offsets for movement instructions.
  • Use work objects for movement references.
  • Edit position date including motion types, position name, velocity, and accuracy
  • Create and edit existing programs and positions.
  • Cut, edit, mark, paste, and delete lines of the program.
  • Create, declare, and edit of routines of data types such as registers and robtargets.
  • Program subroutines for proper program flow.
  • Program advanced motion commands.
  • Program the robot using proper motion techniques.
  • Demonstrate the abilty to distinguish and create different data types and data tables.
  • Define and understand the programming techniques for data arrays for error messages and positions.
  • Use the robot controller service port to transfer files between the robot controller and a computer, understand syntax of offline programs and I/O, and edit and reload programs offline.

Demonstrate advanced robot control.

Objectives:

  • Define different error handling methods and how to use them.
  • Understand the instructions that are used with error handling and how they will affect program flow.
  • Demonstrate the ability to use the different instructions in order to setup an error handling routine.
  • Understand and define different world zones, limit motion, and set digital outputs using world zones.
  • Explain and solve wrist configuration and singularity problems during program execution.
  • Set teach pendant programmable keys.
