Yes, that works. The ROBO interface must be set as COM/USB interface.
Please download the latest software version (update) under the heading Service/Downloads.
Is there a power failure?
Please check whether the display on the ROBO TXT or TX controller is working or the light-emitting diode on the ROBO interface is lit.
Is the TXT/TX controller or the ROBO interface correctly connected to the computer?
Please carry out a visual inspection.
Is the USB driver installed correctly?
For the driver, see "C:\ Program Files (x86)\ROBOPro\USB Driver Installation."
You will find corresponding information in chapter 7 "Controlling Multiple Interfaces" in the ROBOPro Help. The following error messages could appear: "The minimum number of processes is too small. Please increase the maximum number of processes in the Properties window of the main program."
In the ROBOPro program's "Properties" tab, the minimum number of processes must be higher than the number of "green traffic lights" that you use in your program.
The ROBOPro software contains a help file, in which the programming language is explained in detail. It also contains numerous examples. In addition, all the programming elements are explained. This can be opened via the menu bar under "Help -> Help." On the ROBOPro CD this help is available as a printable PDF file, which you can download.
The digital booklets for TXT Automation Robots, TXT ElectroPneumatic and TXT Explorer are installed together with the software ROBOPro on the computer. After installation, these are available via the menu items "Windows Start-All Programs."
The didactic accompanying material for the TXT Discovery Set is also installed together with the software ROBOPro on the PC and can be selected via the ROBOTICS terminal, which also shows the welcome movie.
Compared to a printed version, the digital guidance material offers numerous advantages:
Under "First Steps," an animated movie shows exactly step-by-step how the controller is put into operation and how to create the first program.
The "TXT Discovery Set" contains information about components, programming the models and troubleshooting. For each model, there is a direct link to a sample program in ROBOPro. The accompanying material is also linked directly to ROBOPro's help file, so that you can jump directly to the help desk at the right places for further detailed information.
All didactic accompanying information is available on our eLearning portal at:
www.fischertechnik-elearning.com. However, the linking of other external data (ROBOPro software, ROBOPro help, sample programs) does not work with these pdf files. To do this, the pdf files must be installed on the computer together with the ROBOPro software.
It could be because "Adobe Acrobat Reader" is not installed on the computer. This is available for free download at http://www.adobe.com/de/products/reader.html.
Note: Other readers may not support all the convenient features (such as links to other files, animations) used in the accompanying materials.
Connect the battery to the TXT/TX controller's universal input (I1-I8). In this case, you must connect the battery’s negative pole to the input ground socket and connect the battery's positive terminal with the other input jack.
You can see that only the green "Ext" light-emitting diode flashes.
In the ROBOPro toolbar,you have mistakenly switched the programming environment from TXT/TX to ROBOIF. If you switch this environment back to TXT/TX by mouse click, the inputs are read correctly again.
In this case something went wrong with the update. First of all, you can try to download the update repair tool (link to the download area) from our website and run it as described there. If the update still does not work, you must send the TXT controller to us for repair.
Unfortunately in this case, you must send the TXT controller to us for repair.
