Hi Daniel, The easy answer is to shot off the power and air and then Lockout-Tagout the system. If the robot controller is a multi-robot controller then a Guard Stop, or superior stop lockout could work but that is if you're not manipulating other air or hydraulic potential. However, not knowing your system, I would consult your safety documentation. Can you provide more details as to why you are asking? Thanks, Matt

Hi Daniel To echo the other responses, the easiest method would be to lock out the entire system. If the robots are acting independently in the cell, such that you may want to take one down and not all, then you would need to evaluate how you can safely isolate individual robots. If you are interested in reviewing this further let me know and we can set up a time to talk!
