How does exclusive control work?
The Virtual Fence is a collision prevention function. Monitoring target objects, such as robots, tools, and equipment, are modeled by WINCAPSIII.
Based on the modeling data, users can start and stop the monitoring by using a teach pendant, mini pendant, or command.
This function is available in Ver.1.12.* or higher.
A full copy of Wincaps III is required to use this function.
If a single robot is used in a system, the system consists of a controller and a robot as the following figure shows. There is no communication with an external device.
You can set the following items as monitoring objects.

The combination of monitoring objects is selected by parameters.
– robot -to- equipment (including fence)
