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.
