ABB Automatic Mode
#1
I am trying to run the RDK_Driver_Socket.mod on an ABB robot in Automatic Mode (not manual mode, because I cannot hold the pendant all day. :P)

In the docs (https://robodk.com/doc/en/Robots-ABB.html) only Manual mode is mentioned. Does anyone know how would I use it for Automatic Mode? 

If I turn the switch to Automatic Mode, I lose the Program Pointer and when I press the Play button on the Main Routine then the Pendant says the Task is missing a Program Pointer.

Thanks!

If I run the program in Manual Mode, it works. I can set the Program Pointer to the Main routine and then press the Play button on the teach pendant. I can then connect my PC to the robot.

But if I then turn the switch to Automatic Mode on the robot, I get the following error:

"Automatic Mode has been selected.
Program pointer will be reset to Main.
First acknowledge and then tap OK."

Then it says: "Program Pointer not available".

Hmm okay, not sure what I have done exactly, but I can run the RDK_Driver_Socket.mod on an ABB robot in Automatic Mode now.

I fully reset the Teach Pendant and followed the instructions at https://robodk.com/doc/en/Robots-ABB.html

The Program Pointer could then be set to the Main Routine again without errors.

Hi Ruud,

Thank you for letting us know.
With ABB robots you need to select "Set PP to main" (set program pointer to main) before you start the program by selecting the play button.
