  • Added a Z self-test motion diagnostic for 4x systems equipped with a Z encoder. This includes some 4900 and all 4910 autohandler systems. This diagnostic executes a sequence of tests to find possible failures and provides recommended actions. Access the Z self-test in the BPWin Motion Diagnostics accessible through the Autohandler menu: Autohandler->Pick-and-Place->Diagnostics. For example, here is a screenshot of the Motion Diagnostics Report where the Z-axis encoder is not connected to the headboard:

  • Improved use of the theta encoder during axis motion to correct failed attempts to arrive at the commanded destination. Added useful debugging log information to help operators pinpoint any hardware faults. In the case of consistent theta failures, the theta speed will decrease incrementally to keep the machine running. This enables operators to finish the current job and address any hardware failures afterward.
