- The ROS packages are meant to be used with the gripper plugged in the USB port of the ROS PC, not the robot controller
- Plug the USB of the gripper in the ROS PC controller and follow these instructions: http://wiki.ros.org/robotiq/Tutorials/Control%20of%20a%20C-model%20gripper%20using%20Modbus%20RTU%20protocol
@mvanhout we have an ongoing beta for the dual Gripper, it's in a private section. I can tell you that the official release will be next month. More to come!
@mertzga this will work but you need to correct a few things. The function is " rq_is_object_detected" and it will return either True or False, not 0 or 1.
Tell me if it works with this.
@lakshmip001 yes you can play with the friction coefficient to increase your payload. The payload calculation is detailed in the instruction manual section 6.2. Same thing with the custom fingertips, some dimensions are specified. The graph is lacking a dimension in X (what you are trying to do), you should respect the same dimensions then the Y specifications.
When looking at those charts you will probably notice that grip force decrease with an increase in finger opening. Thus if you use the 2-F-140 and increase it's opening to maximum you will be able to pick you part of 268 mm but only with a grip force of 40 N.
Hi everyone, we had a bunch of questions and request concerning the Robotiq product compatibility over UR. Remember that the Camera is compatible for UR with controller 3.1 only while our other products URCaps will require controller 3.0 and over. Well, Universal Robots just released an upgrade kit to convert your controller to 3.1! It's available since January 1st and you can convert your CB3 to the latest.
@matthewd92 @Kaleb_Rodes @Ryan_Weaver @ahumphrey you guys in particular asked me.
This means that anyone with a CB3 controller can now upgrade their controller motherboard to be compatible with the Robotiq Wrist Camera.
Product numbers are:
CB2.0 to CB2.1 upgrade
CB3.0 to CB3.1 upgrade
Thanks @Stefan_Stubgaard for the update and happy new year to everyone!
