The XRC Operator's Upgrade to XRC Basic Programming Module is an introductory course to the XRC controller and to programming of Motoman XRC controlled industrial robots. Students must have previously attended the XRC Operator's course.

Students learn to manipulate the robot, create new robot programs, modify existing programs, create back-up data, and apply applicationspecific commands.

Primary topics include:

Course Overview

Classroom lectures on programming commands are reinforced with demonstrations. Commands and topics are related to real-world examples and applications. 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. Class size is kept small, typically 12 or fewer, to promote an interactive, hands-on learning atmosphere. Students work with each other and with the help of Motoman instructors to grasp the concepts of robot programming.

Course Materials

Students receive a copy of the XRC Basic Training Manual which details commands and programming technique for the Motoman XRC 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.
