However, this work does not focus on a convenient HMI, but moreover on open interfaces, extensibility, scalability, robustness for external disturbances, and especially on the requirement to keep the usage of sensors entirely open. The above-mentioned possibilities for manual control a teach-in programming are only the necessary base. Unless parts of the original control system match the new requirements, the parts are reused in the new system.

For manipulator operation, at least one control PC is required. A motion control board within this PC constitutes the interface to an electronic adaptation assembly, which delivers velocity set points to each frequency inverter on the one hand side, and which provides the joint positions to the control computer. One major requirement is to make the absolute manipulator position permanently available to the controller. Therefore, an electronic assembly group for position tracking was developed. This one transmits the current position with an accuracy of 13 Bits via the serial port to the control PC.
To guarantee the board's functionality at AC power failures and during transports, the position-tracking unit supplied by accumulators if required. The communication vie the serial port occurs only at during the start-up procedure, afterwards, die control computer receives the position information from the motion control board. To assure an excellent dynamic behavior, signal quality loss and signal latency have to be kept small, such that the necessary bandwidth of the components for signal adaptation between PC and drive electronic was determined preliminary to the development.
