Robot Hardware Troubleshooting
|Excessively jerky movement or acceleration and stall of the last joint of a robolink robot during initial set up of the robot||Wrong encoder direction||Swap encoder direction of this joint|
|Green LEDs on the rail modules are off||No power is supplied to the Modules||Check the power supply and the fuse.|
|Motors do not move||Check the emergency stop state. The red LED on the support module most not be on. The LED indicates emergency stop||Deactivate (=release) emergency stop.|
|The modules do not react to software commands. The green LEDs are not blinking, they are continuously on||There must not be an empty slot between the support module of the electronics and the joint modules. The CAN connection is interrupted by such an empty slot.||Ensure there is no empty slot between the modules|
|The motor stalls: it does not finish a motion and increases in pitch of sound.||This happens, when the load of the motor was too high.||Check if there was a collision. If this happens several times increase the motor current, see chapter 7 of the manual.|
|CPRog cannot connect||Another application may be using the CAN connection||Close or reset the PCAN-View software, if it is running. If the fault persists, restart the PC and power-cycle the robot.|
