Do you want to measure the force applied to the robot during a robot's motion? If so, this new program template is just for you! It could also be used in assembly tasks or in testing applications to measure the maximum force in a motion. Get the program template here

Reset Controller After Major Fault

YJW had trouble with his Robotiq controller indicating a major fault. With the help of the coaches he ended up fixing the issue. When using the Robotiq Universal Controller, you need to remember to always wire its e-stop pins correctly. If you do not have any configured to your Robotiq Controller, simply install a jumper between the e-stop pins from the supply connector. Get more instructions in the manual here.

Tdan has our 2-Finger Gripper on a KUKA IIWA robot and is having trouble with its integration. He is wondering how to configure the inputs/outputs in WorkVisual for the Gripper. Did you encounter this problem before? Help him out!

Using URScript to Get Data Into a Program

VT_340 would like to know how to get data (for example a X or Y variable position from a sensor outside the robot) via TCP. Louis_bergeron shared a good tip on the community and even gave an example script. Take a look!
