Installing the Robot Monitoring Suite

The Robot Monitoring Suite software must be installed both on your PC and your robot controller. First you have to install the Desktop Client Application, and use it in turn to install the required files on the robot controller.

Desktop Client Application

The Robot Monitoring Suite comes with an easy, step-by-step installer which you can use to install the Robot Monitoring Suite Desktop Client Application on your PC with Microsoft Windows.

Robot-side Application

You can install the Robot-side Application for Robot Monitoring Suite on the robot controller by using the Robot Monitoring Suite Desktop Client Application's “Deploy” menu.

The installation process requires that you remove the system CF card from the robot controller, and connect it to your PC running Robot Monitoring Suite Desktop Client Application, using a USB CF card reader.

Once the installation on the CF card is ready, you can put the system CF back into the robot controller. Please note that in order for the Robot Monitoring Suite to work properly, the robot controller's IP configuration must be set up appropriately. See a guide to Robot Controller IP and HostName configuration.

Please note that UDP port 9988, TCP ports 4200 and 4300 are used, and must be open on your local area network and client PC for the Robot Monitoring Suite to work properly.
