MLX300 Teach Screen on the Robot Pendant

With the new MLX300 Teach Screen on the robot pendant, a Proface or Allen-Bradley MobileView pendant is no longer required.   All of the MLX teach and play mode operations can be done on the robot pendant.


Jogging, Teaching Points and Executing a Program

This video tutorial will demonstrate how easy it is to use the MLX300 HMI to jog the robot, teach points and execute a job. It will explain how to set up the tool correctly. Once the points are taught, the tutorial will explain how to program motion commands in the PLC ladder, and where to locate the tags for motion data. During the program execution, it will show how to stop and restart the job with other options of recovery.


MLX300 Advanced Debugging Topics

This video tutorial will explain how to avoid potential PLC programming issues when using the MLX300. It will explain a step by step process to debug the most common problems.
