2 Installation conditions and requirements

The actual weight of the myCobot robot is 3.3 kg. Considering that during use, the center of gravity will move with the movement of the robot, so the robot needs to be fixed on a solid base before it can be used normally. Base weight requirements: fixed base, or mobile base.

Robot base interface size

The base fixing hole is the interface between the fixed robot and other bases or planes. The specific hole size is shown in the figure below. There are 4 countersunk holes with a diameter of 4.5mm, which can be fixed with M6 bolts.

底座尺寸

  • Robot end mounting flange

    The end of the robot arm is compatible with both LEGO component holes and screw threaded holes.

Please make sure that there are corresponding threaded holes on the fixed base before installing.

Before the official installation, please confirm:

  • The environment to be installed meets the requirements of Section 2.2.1.3.1 above.

  • The installation position is not smaller than the working range of the robot, and there is enough space for installation, use, maintenance and repair.

  • Put the stand in a suitable position.

  • Installation related tools are ready, such as screws, wrenches, etc.

  • After confirming the above, please move the robot to the base mounting table, adjust the robot position, and align the fixing holes of the robot base with the holes on the base mounting table. After aligning the holes, align the screws with the holes and tighten them.

    Note: When adjusting the position of the robot on the base installation table, please try to avoid pushing and pulling the robot directly on the base installation table to avoid scratches. When manually moving the robot, try to avoid applying external force to the fragile parts of the robot body, so as to avoid unnecessary damage to the robot.

3 Power on the robot

​ Before operation, please confirm that you have read and ensured that you have followed the contents of Chapter 1 Safety Instructions to ensure safe operation. At the same time, connect the power adapter to the robotic arm, and fix the base of the robotic arm on the table. The connection method is shown in Figure 3-1.

Figure 3-1 Location of the power connector

myCobot must be powered with an external power supply to provide sufficient power:

  • Rated voltage: 24V
  • Rated current: 9.4A
  • Plug Type: KPPX-4P R7BFDC

Note that when using, please connect the 320 adapter first, and then connect to the typeC. You cannot just use the TypeC plugged into the Basic for power supply. Please use the official power supply to avoid damage to the robotic arm.

4 Driver Installation

​ Users can download the corresponding CP210X or CP34X driver compressed package according to the operating system they are using, and after decompressing the compressed package, select the installation package with the corresponding operating system digits for installation.

​ There are currently two driver chip versions, CP210X (applicable to CP2104 version) / CP34X (applicable to CH9102 version) driver package. If you are not sure which USB chip your device is using, you can install both drivers at the same time.

The installation tutorial can be viewed by scanning the QR code:

5 Using USB to connect to a computer

Figure 3-2 Schematic diagram of the USB interface

​ 1) Use the Type-C cable to connect to the computer and the corresponding USB interface of the robotic arm Basic, and check the connection. Connection detection is a detection function for the connection status of the motors and Atoms in the robot arm. This feature makes it easy for customers to troubleshoot equipment.

For connection detection tutorial, please refer to MyCobot-320 for M5 Product Manual-3.4.3 Status Query Teaching.

​ 2) After passing the connection detection, if the device is not faulty, the communication forwarding detection can be performed. The timeliness of communication is very important for the microcontroller manipulator. For the microcontroller manipulator, we usually send control commands to the Basic of the base, and forward them through communication, and the end effector will parse the commands and then execute the target action. .

For the communication forwarding detection tutorial, please refer to MyCobot-320 for M5 Product Manual-3.4.4 Communication Forwarding Teaching.
