Hello!

I have configured an input on my robot (UR3e software version 5.2.0) to "Start Program".

Although it shows in the I/O tab that it is indeed coming on it does nothing whether I'm starting a program or pausing and then trying to resume.

I did set the input to "Pause" and then to "Stop" and both of those work as expected.

Am I missing something?

Thanks, Todd

    @zoddman,

    Here's what you get from the UR manual:

    Start: starts or resumes the current program on a rising edge. This function is only enabled in Remote Control (see 21.3.3).

    To start a program you need to be in Remote Control mode. Have you tried this?

    Remote Control can be enabled from the Settings Menu --> System --> Remote Control. After enabling it, you'll get a menu a the top right of the teach pendant to allow to switch from manual to remote mode.
