This means that complex robot paths can be generated in the user-friendly online robotics teach-in environment. These are then implemented in the machine process via PLCopen Part 4 in the PLC environment. The user benefits from a single, familiar programming environment. All robot types plus the entire process and machine sequence are controlled simultaneously with just one program run. All axes can be accessed comprehensively and uniformly via online teach-in in a familiar CoDeSys environment – regardless of whether it is from the PLC motion or the robotics environment. The PLC has constant access to all robot data. As a result, robot functions can be manipulated easily and quickly via the PLC. This includes, for example, program management and operating mode management and the readout of online sensor data for path planning. Keba has its own additional libraries for the use of further robotics features such as tracking, cooperating robots and sensor-based robot control, for example.
