    Hi Annick, quick question.

    Every time I power on the robot, I have to do the steps you explain here. Is there a way to "save" on the installation file the Tool output slider on 24V?

    Hello @Michael_Perez, this will be fixed in the next release of the URCap. In the meantime, you can put the following code in the "Before Start" section of your program.
    set_tool_voltage(24)
    set_tool_communication( True ,115200,0,1,1.5,3.5)
