Safety Questions

Question Asked:

I have a Daihen OTC AX robot cell with 2 robots and 2 controllers on it. My issue is when you press the E-stop on the each pendant or start box on either unit it does not go into E-stop but my external E-stops do work fine. Any Ideas?

That is not good! It is not likely both would fail at the same time. Did they work originally? I would look for either a wiring change, e.g. those e-stops have been jumpered out, or a programming issue in the controller first. After that you'd need to contact the manufacturer.

Dear Sir: Thank you for your inquiry, Proper and thorough response to safety related questions would not be possible with limited information, As a turnkey integrator, we would not be in a position to certify safety aspects of any installation where we are not integrally involved in in all implementation details. I can reference ANSI/RIA R15.06-2012 Industrial Robot Safety Standard as a good first step toward answering your questions. Please consider us should you determine that a turnkey solution is needed or if you would be interested in having us evaluate the application please feel free to contact me directly. Thank you and best wishes on your project and for this upcoming holiday season Al Keefer 847 954 9365
