UFACTORY Lite-61 Lite Robotic Arm

Product Information

The Lite Robotic Arm is a robotic arm designed for industrial and commercial use. It comes with an integrated control box and can be connected to a PC for software control. The arm is fixed on a base using M screws and can be connected to a power supply using an AC power cable. It also has an emergency stop switch and LAN cable for additional control.

Hardware Connection

  • Connect the Network Cable Router, Emergency Stop Button, and PC to the integrated control box
  • Use the Power adapter to connect the Voltage selector switch and Power Supply
  • Fix the Lite Robotic Arm on the base using M screws
  • Connect the DC input cable to the integrated control box of the Lite Robotic Arm and adjust the voltage selector switch according to the local voltage
  • Connect the AC power cable to the power supply
  • Connect the Emergency Stop Switch and LAN cable to the Lite Robotic Arm
  • Check the power and motion status indicator

Software Connection

  • Ensure that all hardware connection steps have been completed
  • Configure the IP address of the PC Set the IP address of the PC: Make sure the PC and the integrated Control Box are in the same LAN environment [The network segment of the integrated Control Box is …xxx (x is a number between 0 and 255)], which means that the IPV network segment of the PC must be between … and … (the end number of IP address shall be different from that of the Control Box); the factory IP address of the Lite has been marked on the integrated Control Box
    1. Verify the IP address of the PC: Enter cmd in the search box, open a command window, and directly ping the IP address of the Robotic Arm entering doc command line: ping …XXX, which can send and receive data packets successfully
    2. Enter `IP+:’ in the browser to access to UFACTORY Studio. For example, the IP of the control box is …, enter …: in the Google Chrome browser

Lite 6 Robotic Arm connection

  • Make sure there is no obstacle in the Li 6 robotic arm’s working space.
  • Fix the Lite 6 robotic arm on the base using 4 M5 sc rews.
  • Connect the DC in the put cable to the integrated control box of the Lite 6 robotic arm, The con – nector I s error-proof, please do not unplug and plug it in violently. Adjust the voltage selector switch according to local voltage, and connect the AC power cable to the power supply.
  • Connect the Eme urgency Stop Switch and LAN cable to the Lite 6 robotic arm.
  • Check the power and motion status indicator, as shown in Figure 3 .

Notice: Please make sure the voltage selector switch(as shown in Figure 2) has been adjusted to the correct gear according to the local voltage before powering on. Otherwise, the circuit of the Lite 6 robotic arm may be damaged

Software connection

  1. Ensure that all the hardware connection steps have been completed;
  2. Configure the IP address of the PC

(1) Set the IP address of the PC: Make sure the PC and the integrated Control Box are in the same LAN environment [The network segment of the integrated Control Box is 192.168.1.xxx (x is a number between 1 and 255)], which means that the IPV4 network segment of the PC must be between 192.168.1.1 and 192.168.1.255 (the end number of IP address shall be different from that of the Control Box); the factory IP address of the Lite 6 has been marked on the integrated Control Box; The configuration steps on PC are shown in Figure 4.1-4.5;

Enter ‘IP+:18333’ in the browser to access to UFACTORY Studio.
For example, the IP of the control box is 192.168.1.185, enter 192.168.1.185:18333 in the Google Chrome browser, as shown in Figure 6:

Note: The IP of the control box is attached on the base of Lite 6 robotic arm, as shown in Figure 6.1.

At this point, all installation steps have been completed. If you need to modify the network segment of the Control Box to adapt to the LAN segment, please check Appendix I. If you want to download more information, please see Appendix 2.

Appendix 1

  • Through the following steps, you can modify the network segment of the Control Box to fit the current LAN segment.
  • Assume that the network segment of the customer LAN is: 192.168.2.xxx
  1. Connect the Control Box to the PC directly with a Network Cable, and then modify the IPV4 address of the PC to be the same as the network segment of the Control Box. The factory IP address of the device has been marked on the side of the Control Box. The IP settings on the PC are shown in Figure 4.1 -4.5;
  2. Use UFACTORY Studio to connect to the Control Box, and change the network segment of the Robotic Arm to the LAN segment in the network settings under the setting options of UFACTORY Studio, after clicking save, restart UFACTORY Studio (see Figure 7.1-7.2). Then close UFACTORY Studio and restart it, then remove one end of the Network Cab e connected to the PC segment and connect it to the CAN;
  3. Set the IPV4 address of the PC to obtain automatically and access the L AN, as shown in Figure 4.5.
