FANUC A05B-2490-C171 Overview

Fanuc A05B2490C171 Overview

The Fanuc A05B2490C171 Teach Pendant is a sophisticated control device for industrial robots, designed to provide a comprehensive and user-friendly interface for programming and operating robotic systems. This technical description outlines its key features and functionalities, detailing how they contribute to enhanced control and efficiency in robotic applications.

Physical Features

  1. Keypad: The pendant's keypad includes multi-functional keys that serve different purposes based on the active screen. Most keys have dual roles, acting as command keys in specific contexts and as alphanumeric inputs otherwise.
  2. Live-Man Switch: A safety feature located on the side of the pendant, the live-man switch has three positions. It needs to be in the 'Motion Enabled' position for robot motion to occur. In other positions, it disables motion for safety.
  3. E-Stop: The emergency stop button is a critical safety feature that immediately halts robot movement when activated. It requires a reset before the robot can resume operation.
  4. Screen: The screen displays various menus and options, allowing users to navigate through different functions and settings of the robot.
  5. Pendant Sounds: Auditory feedback is provided for certain actions and alerts.

Functional Keys and Their Uses

  1. Function Keys: These keys are context-sensitive and change their function based on the current screen. The screen’s bottom line indicates the available options.
  2. Axis Keys: Used primarily in the Manual Menu screen to control robot movement. Their functionality varies with the motion settings of the robot.
  3. Motion Keys: These are specific to the Manual Menu screen and include keys for gripping, homing, readying the robot, and limping or unlimping the axes.
  4. Array Keys: They facilitate navigation and selection within variable arrays, allowing users to choose specific elements.
  5. Data Entry Keys: Include alphabetic and numeric keys for inputting data like variable names or sizes.

Live-Man Switch Functionality

  • The switch must be in the 'Motion Enabled' position for initiating robot motion through the teach pendant.
  • Releasing or excessively pressing the switch engages the safety mechanism, stopping the robot.

E-Stop Button Usage

  • The E-stop button, when pressed, disables arm power and stops the robot instantly.
  • It must be reset (turned clockwise) before arm power can be re-engaged.

Navigating Screens

  • The teach pendant operates through a system of screens, each displaying a range of functions and options controlled via function keys.
  • Navigating through these screens is integral to accessing various features and functions of the robot.

Passing Control to the Teach Pendant

  • Control can be passed to the teach pendant from other systems for tasks like teaching and testing.
  • This is achieved through specific commands in the system shell or application shell.

Moving the Robot

  • The teach pendant allows for precise control over the robot's movements, with settings for speed, motion type, and mode.
  • Movement is initiated by holding the live-man switch and using the axis and motion keys.

Terminating Pendant Control

  • To return control to the host computer, the user navigates to the 'Terminate Pendant' screen and selects the appropriate option.
  • This process is crucial for safely handing back control from the pendant to the computer system.

This comprehensive set of features makes the Fanuc A05B2490C171 Teach Pendant a versatile and essential tool in the realm of industrial robotics, offering precision, safety, and ease of use for complex robotic operations.
