Simplest mini production line

The Conveyor Kit for DOBOT Magician makes it possible to own a complete simulated production line. The powerful and programmable DOBOT Magician, when combined with conveyor belt of adjustable speed, distance and color sensor, is the ideal and perfect tool for you to create a highly effective simulated production line, or even to apply to actual factory application scenarios.

Conveyor belt

Mini conveyor belt is a great component for building an automation process with you robot.

Photoelectric switch

Detect whether there are objects in front of the photoelectric switch.

Color sensor

An easy-to-use color sensor for you to categorize red, blue and green objects.

Foam blocks

These colorful Foam blocks are easy to grab, move and pile, the ideal material for you to get a grip of automation process.

FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions about Conveyor Belt Kit

A: Open the blockly module, and run the test program below to check the photoelectric sensor is normal or not. If there’s no barriers in front of photoelectric sensor, the value will be 0; otherwise, the value will be 1.

Note:

1)If you choose the Interface GP2 in blockly module, and the sensor should be connected onto the Interface GP2 on Dobot arm correspondingly.

2)You can use the spin button on the back of photoelectric sensor to adjust its sensing distance. Clockwise (C.W.) spinning means making the distance longer and anticlockwise spinning means making the distance short. If the data of sensor is always 1 or 0, you can try to deal the problem by slightly spinning it.

A: Take a close look at the color of indicator light. The yellow indicates the next running of Dobot arm is limited, and you should modifies its position point.

A:
1) Check the present software firmware and the version of Dobot Studio whether they support the color sensor or not.

2) The distance between color sensor and wood blocks shouldn’t be too long or too short, it had better in the range of 5~10 mm.

3) Check the pre-setting color sensor interface and the actual interface is consistent or not.

4) If the above mentioned methods are noneffective, please open the blockly module, and run the test program below. Check the reading data in Running Log which is on the right, and you should change a color sensor if the reading data is abnormal.
