Control of PLC from the testplan

Question asked by pengonia on Mar 14, 2019

We have an in-line i3070 5i system. Keysight gives us limited control of the PLC from the testplan. We can set auto mode, stop, check if board is ready for barcode, etc. I'd like to have more control. Here are some reasons why:

 

  1. We've seen where the board alignment sensor gets disabled. I'd like to be able to detect that in the testplan and re-enable it.
  2. We have to adjust the rail offset on a per-board basis. Would be nice to have the testplan do that.
  3. If Using_Barcodes is set to False in the testplan, it disables it in the PLC, but never re-enables. Would like to control that.

 

What I'm hoping is there is a longer list of addresses and data than what is published in the in-line testmain allowing this level of control. If there isn't, there really should be.
