Denford VR Robot and RV-M1

Post by pjk1987 » Wed 23 Mar , 2011 21:13 pm

Hi

I am trying to configure a Mitsubishi RV-M1 to work in conjunction with Denford VR Robot but constantly encounter problems.

The latest issue I have is that when I connect the robot through the dongle to the pc a security error flags. The error reads as followed:

"Security" Usage rights not found in dongle.

I have a feeling that I am not connecting the robot in the right way so perhaps someone could explain how to connect the robot to a PC that runs Denford VR robot.

Can I connect the robot to just one PC and run Denford VR robot from it?

Also, what are the costs involved in acquiring Denford VR robot software and how do I do so? An old version is installed on the PC network in our laboratory but it was last operated in 1999 and I cannot find any software available to reinstall anything.

Thanks,

Peter

When you say you are "connecting the robot througth the dongle" do you mean that the cable connecting to the robot is plugged into the dongle? if so this is wrong. The connection to the robot is Serial (RS232) and the dongle plugs into the parallel port. With the dongle in the parallel port, search for a DOS app called DRIGHTS.EXE, run this and see if it can see the dongle

If this may help, there is a download for the CIM software here:
http://www.denfordata.com/downloads/vr_ ... _v1_27.zip
It has not changed for many years and is now obsolete.

Thankyou for your help guys, it is much appreciated!

So let me see if I've got this right. I connect the denford dongle into the parallet port, connect the robot to the PC via rs232 and I should be ready to create programs in Denford VR robot and transfer over to the Mitsubishi RV-M1?

I've had a quick look around the laboratory for the old rs232 cables but in case I can't find them, where would I purchase such items?

Thanks
