Vention

Pally has native integration for the Vention 7th axis, which are the following model:

 

  •  Vention MachineMotion controller V1

  •  Vention MachineMotion controller V2

 

 

  • Note: When using Vention V2  Make sure the URCap “MachineLogic for Universal Robots” v3.1.5 or newer is installed and configured. Vention provides this URCap.

 

Zero position

The encoder zero position can be set to any position in the MachineLogic URCap. Make sure to select a zero position that is suitable for the entire calibration. Set the minimum and maximum stroke parameters according to how much the lifting column can go below- and above the zero position, see the rf_min_stroke and rf_max_stroke parameters.
