Fence Guarding: I just purchased a Fanuc M-710ic. I am getting ready to purchase some safety fencing to establish a perimeter around the robot. The fence height I am proposing is 2200 mm (86 inches) tall. What are the standards required for fence height? I would prefer to go shorter because this robot will be in a lab setting for development/training etc... Thanks

FANUC - "Stop position prediction". Hello, can you tell me what this DCS option is used for? We have a supplier who uses this option on the robot in a fully cage scenario, no collaboration with any human. This option increases the footprint inside of the cell to allow the robot to run at full speed. We want this supplier to not use this option, but they feel it is needed for the safety and to prevent the robot from crashing through the fence in an abnormal situation. Any info on this feature would be greatly appreciated!

I have a Daihen OTC AX robot cell with 2 robots and 2 controllers on it. My issue is when you press the E-stop on the each pendant or start box on either unit it does not go into E-stop but my external E-stops do work fine. Any Ideas?
