The DX100 Basic Programming Course is an introductory course to the DX100 Controller and programming of the Motoman DX100 series industrial robots. No prior knowledge of robot programming or of the DX100 Controller is required. Course Overview The training module consists of classroom lectures in which Yaskawa Motoman instructors present course material consisting of programming commands, reinforced with demonstrations. The commands and topics are related to real-world examples and applications. Students work in teams to perform workshop exercises including actual programming to emphasize commands covered in class lectures. Classes are kept small in size, in order to promote an interactive, hands-on learning atmosphere. This allows the students to work with each other and Yaskawa Motoman instructors in order to grasp the concepts of operating a robot. Topics Yaskawa Motoman instructors cover topics which enable the students to manipulate the robot, create robot programs and modify existing programs. An overview of the primary topics covered in the course is provided below: - Robot Safety - Fault Recovery - System Power Up/Down - Programming Pendant - Coordinate Systems - Path Editing - Cut/Paste Functions - Arithmetic Variables - Position Levels - I/O & Control Instructions - User Frames - Job Functions - Speed Correction - Tool Centre
