How to use Robot Service Requests on a fanuc robot

How to use Robot Service Requests on a fanuc robot

Hi all,

I've aquired an old Fanuc robot, an LRMATE200i.

I have all the manuals, and i've worked out how to write a program that works well. What I'd like to do is have that program activate automatically when a component arrives in a hopper.  I know this can be done using Robot Service Requests (RSR), but I can't get it to work.

I have proximity sensor on the hopper that sends a signal when a part is present. The sensor works, and I can see that a signal is recieved by the robot.  I have my program numbered RSR1111, and that is mapped to RSR1 in the setup part of the control.
The robot is in 'remote' mode, 'step' mode is off, and the pendant is not active.
As far as I can see now, when the sensor is triggered then RSR1111 should start running.  Only it doesn't.

I'm teaching myself as I go with this, so I assume I'm missing something basic.   Any ideas?
