In these articles you will learn how to connect a Kolver K-Ducer to ELAM via a Smart Work Assistant (SWA) 5 Client WiFi. Initially, the Kolver K-Ducer control establishes a direct network connection via Ethernet to the Smart Work Assistant. A Kolver K-Ducer controller is pre-installed on the SWA, via which ELAM activates and deactivates the tool..
Note: Communication with the Kolver K-Ducer runs only via the Open Protocol interface.
To use the Kolver K-Ducer you need at least the following hardware:
When delivered, the SWA has the following network settings by default:
IP address: 10.43.0.1
Subnet mask: 255.255.255.0
Port: 4545 (default port for Open Protocol Tools)
In this section you will learn how to set up the Kolver K-Ducer controller correctly so that the connection to the Kolver K-Ducer controller on the SWA can be established. To do this, connect the Kolver K-Ducer controller to power and connect the controller to the SWA via an Ethernet cable.
How to configure the Kolver K-Ducer controller:
Click on general settings.
Click on the button on page 2.
Set the settings on page 2 as follows:
Click on the button on page 3.
Set the settings on page 3 as follows:
Click on the button on page 4.
Set the settings on page 4 as follows:
Click on the button on page 5.
Set the settings on page 5 as follows:
Apply settings on the button so that the controller establishes the connection to the ELAM K-Ducer controller on the SWA.
You should now see the message OPEN PROTOCOL NOT CONNECTED in the display. The ELAM K-Ducer controller automatically searches for a controller on the network every 60 seconds. Once the connection is successfully established, the message disappears from the display.
The connection to the ELAM K-Ducer controller is successfully established as soon as the message OPEN PROTOCOL NOT CONNECTED is no longer displayed. By default, the control is disabled with the STOP MOTOR ON info. Once a program is activated via ELAM, you can screw with the tool.
As soon as a new K-Ducer controller establishes the connection to the ELAM K-Ducer controller, the controller is automatically created as a tool in your ELAM system.
How to find and configure the newly created K-Ducer tool:
New tools created in ELAM do not have an assignment to a station by default.
Each tool is activated in the ELAM wizard when you start a flowchart and the respective step for bolting is activated.
