I need to reset the encoders on a Panarobo AW-005

I need to reset the encoders on a Panarobo AW-005

I need to reset the encoders on a Panarobo AW-005

I need to reset the 6 axis encoders on a Panarobo AW-005.
race01 asked the same in 2008.
How can I ask him what his solution was?

RE: I need to reset the encoders on a Panarobo AW-005

by resetting you mean find the o degree or home position so here is what to do:
1:note the reading you get on the hmi for the encoder position.
2: then u leave the machine in stand still decouple the encoder from the shaft( e.g motor shaft).
3:while view the encoder position on the hmi turn the encoder shaft to the home position.
4:couple the shafts back together and test .
n.b this will only work if the encoder is a absolute encode

RE: I need to reset the encoders on a Panarobo AW-005

The method is in the operating system of the Panarobo AW-005
I have approx 700 pages in 2 manuals, but not a mention of how
to execute the reset function.
On similar robots I enter the function, drive the robot to a datum mark
on each axis, reset encoders and execute the origin seek routine.
There is an 'encoder offset value' to enter for each encoder.
It has a battery backed u/d counter on a magneto-resistive
incremental encoder and they call it absolute.
I guess it is, so long as the origin is set in the first place
and the batteries stay connected......etc.
It is that origin setting that I am trying to achieve.
On some robots, ( Nachi), there is a connector which, when plugged in
momentarily resets the encoders.
This is combined with some 'origin' or 'homing' routine.

The member 'race01' has had the same problem.
Is there a way of sending a question to a specific forum member?
