5.3.1        Debugging Dobot M1

Prerequisites

Ÿ   You have started M1Studio.

Ÿ   You have connected Dobot M1 to the PC over a serial cable.

Ÿ   (Optional) You have connected Dobot M1 to the PC over a network cable.

Ÿ   You have connected Dobot M1 and an emergency stop switch.

Procedure

Step 1         Start Dobot M1. Hold down the power button in the base of Dobot M1 for about 2 seconds, and then release your fingers when the yellow LED indicator is on.

When powering on, the yellow LED indicator in the base is steady on for about 15 seconds, and then blinks once. It is steady on again for about 5 seconds, which indicates that Dobot M1 is being started.

After the yellow LED indicator in the base is off, the green one is steady on for about 5 seconds, and then is blinking, which indicates that Dobot M1 is in service.

NOTICE

When first powering on robotic arm, please check Z-axis or J3 value from M1Studio. If the value is below 10mm, an alarm about limitation is generated and meanwhile the red indicator on the base of robotic arm is on, which is a normal phenomenon. At that point, you need to click J3+ under Joint coordinate system to jog robotic arm to the position where the J3 value is above 10mm, and then the alarm will be cleared.

 

Step 2         Select the corresponding serial port from the serial drop-down list, and click Connect.

If Connect turns to Disconnect, the connection is successful, and Dobot M1 can be controlled by M1Studio.
