1.5 Safety stops
1.5.1. What is an emergency stop?
Definition of emergency stop
An emergency stop is a state that overrides any other manipulator control, disconnects drive
power from the manipulator motors, stops all moving parts, and disconnects power from any
potentially dangerous functions controlled by the manipulator system.
An emergency stop state means that all power is disconnected from the manipulator except
for the manual brake release circuits. You must perform a recovery procedure, i.e, resetting
the emergency stop button and pressing the Motors On button, in order to return to normal
operation.
The manipulator system can be configured so that the emergency stop results in either:
•
An uncontrolled stop, immediately stopping the manipulator actions by disconnecting
power from the motors.
•
A controlled stop, stopping the manipulator actions with power available to the motors
so that the manipulator path can be maintained. When completed, power is
disconnected.
The default setting is uncontrolled stop. However, controlled stops are preferred since they
minimize extra, unnecessary wear on the manipulator and the actions needed to return the
manipulator system back to production. Please consult your plant or cell documentation to
see how your manipulator system is configured.
NOTE!
The emergency stop function may only be used for the purpose and under the conditions for
which it is intended.
© Copyright 2006-2008 ABB. All rights reserved.
NOTE!
The emergency stop function is intended for immediately stopping equipment in the event of
an emergency.
NOTE!
Emergency stop should not be used for normal program stops as this causes extra,
unnecessary wear on the manipulator.
Classification of stops
The safety standards that regulates automation and manipulator equipment defines categories
in which each type of stop applies:
If the stop is... ...
then it is classified as...
uncontrolled
category 0 (zero)
controlled

8.4.1. Overview
General
This chapter includes general information about the calibration method and also details
procedures that do not require specific calibration equipment.
When the robot system must be recalibrated, it is done according to the documentation
enclosed with the calibration tools.
WARNING!
Check first that nobody stands in the FlexLifter area, and that nothing has been left (i.e. tool)
inside the FlexLifter frame. Make sure that the machines have been correctly installed.
NOTE!
The FlexLifter does not need to be calibrated during restart. The resolvers only need to be
calibrated when commissioning the system.
When to calibrate
The FlexLifter axis must be calibrated each time the contents of the revolution counter are
changed or lost:
If resolver values are changed, the robot must be recalibrated using the calibration methods
supplied from ABB. Calibrate the FlexLifter IRL 600 carefully with standard calibration.
The resolver values will change when parts affecting the calibration position are replaced on
the FlexLifter IRL 600, e.g. motor, or part of transmission.
•
the battery is discharged
•
a resolver error occurs
•
the signal between a resolver and measurement board is interrupted
•
a robot axis is moved with the control system disconnected
The revolution counters must also be updated after the robot and controller are connected at
the first installation.
Power failure
There's no need to calibrate the FlexLifter after a power failure, the backup battery included
in the SMB box will store the resolver position until power is restored.
NOTE!
The resolvers only need to be calibrated when commissioning the system.
Fine calibration
The system has been tuned before delivery. The calibration offset value is set to 0 and is stored
in the controller data and the SMB Box. No fine calibration is required on the FlexLifter IRL
600.
