What You Need




To use Kfloppy, you will need the following:


  • A PC running Windows XP or later.



  • A serial cable (RS-232) to connect the PC and the controller.



  • A floppy disk drive or a USB floppy disk drive.



  • A blank 3.5-inch floppy disk.



  • The Kfloppy software, which you can download from this link [^1^].



  • The system software image file for your controller, which you can obtain from Fanuc or your robot supplier.



How to Use Kfloppy




Once you have everything ready, follow these steps to use Kfloppy:


  • Install the Kfloppy software on your PC by running the setup.exe file.



  • Connect the serial cable between the PC and the controller. Make sure the cable is plugged into the correct port on both ends. The port number on the PC should match the one in the Kfloppy settings.



  • Turn on the controller and wait for it to boot up.



  • Insert the blank floppy disk into the floppy disk drive.



  • Run the Kfloppy software on your PC. You should see a window like this:



  • Select the COM port that matches your serial cable connection. You can also adjust the baud rate and other settings if needed.



  • Select the "Create Image" option if you want to make a backup of your current system software, or select the "Restore Image" option if you want to reload a new system software.



  • If you select "Create Image", you will be asked to enter a file name for your backup image. Choose a name that is easy to remember and click "OK". The software will then start reading the data from the controller and writing it to the floppy disk. This may take several minutes depending on the size of your system software. Do not interrupt the process or remove the floppy disk until it is finished.



  • If you select "Restore Image", you will be asked to select an image file from your PC. Browse to the location where you saved your system software image file and click "Open". The software will then start writing the data from the floppy disk to the controller. This may take several minutes depending on the size of your system software. Do not interrupt the process or remove the floppy disk until it is finished.



  • When the process is completed, you will see a message saying "Operation Successful". Click "OK" and exit the Kfloppy software.



  • Eject the floppy disk from the drive and disconnect the serial cable from the controller.



  • Turn off and then turn on the controller again. It should boot up with the new system software loaded.



Tips and Troubleshooting




Here are some tips and troubleshooting advice for using Kfloppy:


  • Make sure you have a backup of your system software before you attempt to reload it. You can use Kfloppy to create a backup image as described above.



  • Make sure you have the correct system software image file for your controller model and version. Using an incompatible image file may cause errors or damage your controller.



  • If you encounter any errors or problems while using Kfloppy, check the following:



  • The serial cable is connected properly and securely.



  • The COM port number and baud rate settings are correct in Kfloppy.



  • The floppy disk is not damaged or corrupted.
