VP6242 Robot Calibration (CALSET)

Modified on Fri, 23 Sep, 2022 at 11:25 AM


CALSET must be performed when any of the motors is replaced or the  encoder backup battery goes dead so that the position-related data  retained in the encoder is lost.

The CALSET data is different on each robot.

CALSET data should be managed by the customer. Back up the CALSET data periodically, referring to "Backing up Projects".

Tools and Parts Needed

  • Philips-head screwdriver (depends on model)
  • Allen (hex) key (depends on model)
  • CALSET Jig
    • 410192-0010 - 6th axis CALSET jig

If you are not sure which part number you need or the Robot Arm you own please stop and contact your DENSO Robotics sales representative.
