Release the DCS (Dual Check Safety) by pressing the MENU key, then SYSTEM, DCS. The DCS has been set to restrict the robot from moving more than ±5° on each f his joints. Set all DCS Joint position check to DISABLE. (6 joints position check for the 6 joints of the robot).  The status will then change to CHGD instead of SAFE.

Go back to the main DCS page (PREV teach pendant button). Press APPLY and the Code number (master) will be asked. Enter xxxx and press ENTER key. Restart the controller for the changes to be effective. Any changes made by the customer after DCS removal will be at its own risks. To prevent unwanted changes to DCS set up, change the master code at delivery.
