If you want to trigg signals on the move without having multitasking on your ABB robot, triggLIOs would help you. This signal would help you to set values to different types of signals (up to 50). One could set Digital Output / Analog Ouput / String Output or Group Output signals with help of this command. This commands also allows one the choice to trigger signals based on distance / time after the start or distance to the end of the movement.
See below examples from RAPID (ABB robots programming language) reference manual:
It’s a while that I am thinking about developing a portal at our student community at University to monitor the part time jobs for robotics & nano-electronics students that are posted online (Finn.no is popular place to do so in Norway). Finally this would come up on a screen where robotics and Nano students would be hanging out.
For this purpose I have either thought to connect directly to the database (waiting for the response from the website). If they do not let me to do so, I was thinking to have the announcements sent to me with email (a service that the website offers) and then process the emails and update the list. To this I came across connecting to email servers with POP3 and using POP3 terminal commands to read emails (a tutorial on this subject) and update my list to show on the screen.
First command after connecting. E-mail userid (this may or may not not the full e-mail address). Example: USER testuser
To open a folder in C#, simply follow the following example :
private void openFolder()
string myDocspath = Environment.GetFolderPath(Environment.SpecialFolder.MyDocuments);// if you are after special documents (e.g. my documents)
string myFolderpath = Application.StartupPath + "\\folderName\\"; // a folder right beside where you run the program
string windir = Environment.GetEnvironmentVariable("WINDIR");
System.Diagnostics.Process process = new System.Diagnostics.Process();
process .StartInfo.FileName = windir + @"\explorer.exe";
process .StartInfo.Arguments = myFolderpath;
process .Start();//OPEN the folder
Saving query to excel format could go through Microsoft Office Interop services or some third party libraries. However there is a simpler way. CSV file formats are wuite simple and one could simply read queries and save them into a text file format with CSV as the extension (myfile.csv).
The tricks would be to have the data read from database by query and write each record as a line and semicolon to separate the column vales.This is actually language independent and one could implement it by C#, Java or any other language that could execute queries on a database.
