Adding a Robot
Robots are central to how the Tend system operates. Once a robot is connected to a sidekick, machines can be added that the robot will tend, and jobs can be created that the robot will perform.
To add a robot to the system, navigate to the Manage page and click the 'Add Robot' button.
In order to add a robot, you'll need to know the IP address that's been assigned to it. The IP is found in different places depending on the type of robot:
- Universal Robots: Go to the Setup Network section of the pendant interface.
- Rethink Robotics: Go to the Config page of FSM.
- Fanuc: Go to the SETUP Host Comm TCP/IP section of the pendant interface.
If the robot does not come online, verify you can ping its IP address from your computer. If that works, verify the Sidekick is online and connected to the same network as the robot. Please contact us for further assistance.
