Project Configuration File
The project configuration file contains settings for one specific robot. If you use multiple robots with different configuration you can use different project files for each of them. CPRog/iRC on your PC and the embedded robot control both got a copy of the project file so make sure changes are synchronized to both.
Most changes can be done via the configuration area in CPRog/iRC. To access it click "File" -> "Configure Project" or "Configure Interfaces". If a robot is connected to while applying the changes will be synchronized to the embedded control. For special configurations the project files can be changed using a basic text editor.
Accessing the Project Configuration File
The project configuration file of CPRog/iRC can be found in the installation directory under:
The project configuration file of the embedded control can be accessed via CPRog/iRC:
- Click File -> Access Configuration
- Click "Try to Connect", if necessary
- In the Project Configuration section click "Load..." to load the current configuration from the embedded control.
- Change the file with a basic text editor
- Write it back by clicking "Write..."
- Restart the robot to apply changes
If that does not work (e.g. when using an older version of CPRog/iRC) the project file can be found at one of the following locations. Read FTP and PuTTY Access on how to access files on the embedded control.
The most important parameters of the project configuration are the following.
We generally recommend changing these via the CPRog/iRC user interface to avoid mistakes.
|Robot||Type||Robot type - this defines the robot configuration file that is used|
|Program||File, FileLogic||The robot program file and logic program file that are loaded after starting the robot|
|Program||Override||The velocity override value (0-100, percent of maximum velocity)|
|Program||Repeat||Run the program once or repeat after it ends|
|OperationModes||Active||Enables the operation mode switch - limits the velocity depending on operation mode|
|OperationModes||ManualMaxVelMMPerSec||Maximum cartesian velocity in manual mode|
|OperationModes||DInOpModeAuto, DInEnableMotionInManualMode||Digital inputs to enable manual and automatic mode|
|InteractionElements||Defines which UI elements are shown in CPRog/iRC and which values are used when adding new commands to a robot program|
|CRIServer||Active||Enables the CRI server (only CPRog/iRC)|
|ModbusServer||Active||Enables the Modbus server|
|ModbusServer||Port||Port of the Modbus server|
|ModbusServer||MaxConnections||Maximum number of concurrent connections (only embedded control)|
