Description This training module is an accelerated version of the standard ERC Basic Programming course. It is designed for students who have achieved competency in the MRC/INFORM language and need to make the transition to ERC. Classroom lectures on programming commands are reinforced with demonstrations. Material covered in the lectures is enhanced with actual hands-on programming by students in Motoman's 8,500-sq.ft. training facility. Students work in teams to perform workshop exercises which emphasize commands covered in class lectures. Class size is kept small, typically 12 or fewer, to promote an interactive, hands-on learning atmosphere. This allows students to work with each other and Motoman instructors to grasp the concepts of robot programming.
Topics Students learn to manipulate the robot, create new robot programs, modify existing programs, and apply application-specific commands.

Primary topics include:

  • Robot safety
  • System power up/down
  • Coordinate systems
  • Job functions
  • Programming pendant
  • Path editing
  • Cut and paste functions
  • Position levels
  • Speed correction
  • Arithmetic variables
  • Fault recovery
  • I/O and control instructions
  • User frames
  • Tool Center Point (TCP)
  • Basic weaving*
  • Starting and ending arc*
  • Overview The ERC to MRC Basic Programming Module is a transitional course to the MRC controller and programming of the Motoman SV- and SK-series industrial robots for trained MRC users. No prior knowledge of programming of the MRC controller is required. The ERC Basic Programming Module is a prerequisite to this module. Proof of ERC Basic course completion is required.
    Materials Students receive a copy of the MRC Basic Training Manual, which details commands and programming technique for the Motoman MRC Controller. Additional handouts relate to specific topics covered in the class. Students are urged to take notes, participate in discussions, and to bring up specific programming issues.
    Length This module is a 3.0-day training class. On-Site classes are demand based and should be scheduled 60-90 days in advance to ensure availability.
