What is an RPG file?
An RPG file is a compiled program created by Panasonic Desktop Programming & Simulation (DTPS). It specifies a set of automated actions that a Panasonic welding robot can execute. To use an RPG file with a robot, users must transfer the file to that robot's controller device.
Panasonic DTPS allows those working with certain Panasonic welding robots, such as the TM-1400, to design programs those robots can execute. For example, a user can design a program that specifies and automates how a robot welds a standard set of parts together into a single component.
After creating a program, users save that program as an RPG file. They then transfer this compiled, binary file to a robot's controller device (such as the G3 Robot Controller), from which they can execute the program the RPG file contains.
How to open an RPG file
RPG files are not meant to be opened. To use an RPG file with a compatible Panasonic welding robot, transfer the RPG file to that robot's controller. For example, you can transfer an RPG file to the G3 Robot Controller used with the TM-1400 welding robot. Then, you can use the controller to execute the program the RPG file contains.
