STEP 1 Connect the pneumatic manifold to the pre-configured gripper.

STEP 1

Connect the pneumatic manifold to the pre-configured gripper.

STEP 2 Connect each actuator to the pneumatic manifold using the supplied 6 mm tubing. Any unused manifold ports should be plugged using the provided 6 mm push-to-connect plugs.

STEP 5 Connect air supply to the SRCU “P” supply port.

STEP 5

Connect air supply to the SRCU “P” supply port.

STEP 6 Connect the SRCU “A” output port to the 10mm pneumatic manifold to supply air to the end-of-arm tool. You will need to use the 10-12mm coupler to link the 12mm output tubing with the 10mm manifold tubing.

— POWER IT —

STEP 7 Power SRCU by connecting the white wire to 24 v DC and the brown wire to 0 v DC. Connect the trigger wire (green) and three slot select wires (yellow, grey, and pink) to the digital I/O of the robot controller, taking note of the I/O port numbers the wires are connected to so that they can be inputted into the robot program.
