Network settings

Pickit port labeled ROBOT

This port has the purpose of connecting your Pickit processor to the robot controller or PLC.

../../_images/settings-port-your-robot.png

By default, this port is set to Static, which means it’s using a fixed IP configuration. You can set the following IP Configuration options:

  • IP Address (Default value: 169.254.5.180)
  • Subnet mask (Default value: 255.255.0.0)
  • Gateway

If you prefer to get an IP Address from a DHCP server, you set this port to Dynamic.

Testing the Robot to Pickit connection

You can check if the IP address of the robot or PLC is reachable from the Pickit processor by entering its IP address in the Robot IP field and pressing Check.

A pop-up message indicating failure or success appears on the lower right corner of the screen.
