KAREL®
Application Software Option

Basic Description
KAREL is an application
development software package
integrated with a FANUC robot
and robot controller. KAREL is
powerful enough to handle
virtually any robotic handling,
processing or assembly application.
The built-in features of KAREL
substantially reduce development,
test and implementation time.
KAREL is recommended for
advanced applications such as
those requiring serial or Ethernet
communication; advanced logic
processing; encoding/decoding
ASCII character strings to binary/
decimal numbers; and data file
manipulation including calculation
of robot positions from external or
user-supplied data files.
Benefits
• Application menus, user
messages and production data
can be displayed on either the
Teach Pendant or CHI
• Built-in position data structure
provides dynamic access to
normal, orient and approach
vectors of position data. This
allows easy changes to location
or configuration data of any
robot position.
• Built-in dictionary and
associated utility routines
include standard user
interfaces such as input forms
and data display tables for
easy programming of user friendly
systems.
• File -data type and associated
built-in routines create and
access multiple product data
files to alter process, input!
output logic, robot path or
sequence during robot
operation.

• Built-in user frames and tool
frames reduce amount of
position teaching by calculating
in real-time the robot position
or robot path.


Features


• Position motion with point-to-point
move commands (MOVE
TO, MOVE NEAR, MOVE
AWAY, MOVE ABOUT, MOVE
RELATIVE, MOVE AXIS).
• Programmable acceleration
and deceleration.
• Robot position data available
in cartesian coordinates or joint
angles.
• User-defined data structures.
• Multi-dimensional and variable
sized arrays.
• BYTE and SHORT data types
for arrays and data structures.

• File data types with built-in
utility routines.
• Control structures for loops
and branch selections.
• Procedure and function
routines.
• Real-time input or output
monitoring via local or
global condition handlers.
• Read and write support
using either the Teach Pendant
or a CRT.
• Built-in functions to manage
Teach Pendant Programs.
• Call KAREL Programs directly
from Teach Pendant Programs.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Utilities


• KAREL Command Language
(KCL) permits keyboard
control of many robot
operations.
• CRT/Keyboard Manager
provides user interface to
controller and application
menus via a VT-220
compatible CRT or terminal
emulator.
• The OlpcPROTM program
development tool is available
and provides an easy,
efficient way to develop
and transfer programs to
the FANUC robot controller.
• Program Diagnostic Utility
logs events that occur during
KAREL and TPP program
execution storing the events
in an ASCII file that can be
printed. This allows easy
identification of programming
problems.
