Banner AG4soft Software Instruction Manual
3 AG4soft Overview
The AG4soft program is used to both establish operational settings for the Scanner and to display measurement and system information produced by the
scanner. Communication between the PC and the AG4 is via an RS232 interface, either RS232-to-RS232 or USB-to-RS232.

Use this software only for Banner AG4 Series Safety Laser Scanner.
'fl
3.1
Configuration
The AG4 Scanner is preprogrammed at the factory with a default configuration but must be reconfigured for each application. The factory default
configuration is stored as a file (standard.rs) in the AG4soft program directory during the software installation on the PC:
C:\Program Files\Banner Engineering\Banner AG\AG4soft\examples
3.1.1
Configuring the AG4
The configuration settings are created by a trained and Qualified Person who understands the AG4 instruction materials. These settings are saved in a
configuration file which has the *.rs file format and includes all the information that the AG4 requires for its intended operation. An AG4's configuration file
includes the following data:

Administrative data, e.g. file name, application description
Safety-relevant data, e.g. startup process

Protective Field or warning field configuration data, e.g. contours and limits

A wizard in the program assists users with the AG4 configuration process.
3.1.2
Protective and Warning Fields
The software makes it easy to establish protective and warning fields. The protective field and the warning field are user defined areas that the Scanner
monitors. An intrusion into the protective field (e.g. a person walking into a monitored work cell) will cause the Scanner to turn its safety outputs off. An
intrusion into the warning field will cause the Scanner to create a warning signal.
Protective field and warning field settings are created and saved as field pairs. Up to 8 configurable field pairs are available for the AG4. A field
configuration file has the *.sf file format and includes data on the size of each protective and warning field. Field pairs can be enabled or disabled, one
field pair at a time, while the Scanner is operational and actively monitoring a work area. This function is useful when changing machine guarding
requirements create the need for changes in protective and warning field dimensions.

5 Configuring the Scanner (Setting Operational Parameters)
5.1
Configuration Requirements
Configuring the AG4 requires:
• Connecting PC to AG4 (via RS232)
• Starting software and logging in as user
• Creating or editing an AG4 configuration with the wizard
• Creating protective field and/or warning field settings
• Downloading the configuration to the AG4
• Checking echo data (confirming the AG4 settings)
5.2
Installing software
NOTE: The AG4 is not required for installing the software on the PC.
Requirements:
• If the PC and AG4 are already connected with one another, turn the AG4 power OFF.
• Close all other Windows applications.
1. Insert the CD ROM.
The installation boots up automatically.
2. Open the Disk1 folder and double-click on the setup.exe file.
If the installation does not start automatically from the CD drive, open the folder \AG4soft\Disk1 and double-click the setup.exe file.
The installation wizard starts.
3. Click on [Next] .
The installation wizard opens the software license agreement.
4. To agree with the software license contract, click Yes.
5. To agree with the recommended installation path, click Next.
or,
6.
To enter another path, Click on Browse.
7.
Select another path and click on OK , then Next.
The wizard installs the software and creates a link on the desktop.
5.3
User Authorization
The following section describes the AG4soft program function access for each authorization level and the login process.
5.3.1
Authorization Level
The Authorization level login permits access to program functions on a need-to-use basis. In other words, the functions that are available depend on the
selected authorization level. Functions (buttons) that are not actionable in the software program appear as grayed-out versions of the original button.
No individual user names are required for the login, but an authorization level must be selected.
The functions for each authorization levels are listed below:

protective or warning fields. The data of an individual protective or warning field configuration
can be saved as its own file. When the AG4's configuration file is saved, the protective or
warning field file is automatically included in the AG4's configuration file.
