SETTING UP SPACE FUNCTION

You have to determine the “Common space measurements” for which you want to set a space function. Let’s say, for example, you want to set up a common space of 800 mm in X direction away from the robot of 450mm. In Y direction the length of the common space will be 2000mm centered according to World frame origin. Finally, the height of the common space will be 1400mm from Robot’s World frame origin starting below origin at -125mm. The set common space will be inside the taught zone.

 DURATION

+/- 30 minutes

  DANGER  

Disabling the space function may cause robot collision with other machines.
