  • Calibration of ACR2 using PHS1 head

    Im having issues after a week shutdown of the head getting stuck 3./4 way down on the pins of our ACR2 changer. Not sure what happened....Ive tried leveling head and have done a full wrist map.

    Can someone guide me in how to calibrate the ACR2? Never done this task yet and a little weary on the details.

    Nothing about calibration of ACR2 on old release docs...
    Hope this helps :

    From MIIM :
    Autochange (ACC2 with ACR Rack)

    This tool changer requires one free RS232 comm port. The following setting can be altered in the Option section of the PC-DMIS Settings Editor.

    AutochangeClearance - This value specifies the clearance location directly in front of a given port of your Autochange Tool Changer. This clearance location value defines the distance in front of the port relative to the port center determined by the calibration. The probe moves to this location before moving into the port for the dropoff/pickup. Default value is 50. Note: These are used during the generation of motion for the change so they can be changed at any time without having to repeat the rack calibration.

    Older versions of PC-DMIS:

    For older versions of PC-DMIS (version 2.X) you must add the following to the PCDLRN.INI file under the [Option] title:

    ToolChangerProtocol=COM2 9600 E,7,1

    The tool changer protocol specified on the above line must match the settings for the tool changer controller. The defaults are shown above.

    Note: The GPIB protocol is not supported for the tool changer.
    ACR2 (used with PHS wrist)

    This tool changer requires no RS232 comm port, but you must add the following to the PCDLRN.INI file under the [Option] title:


    Note: These values were used with older versions of PC-DMIS (e.g. version 2.X)
