Is there a way to get the gripper to open by a digital input(a button)? Say after you stop the program when the gripper is closed, is there a way to wire a button to an input that would open the gripper when pushed?
The usual way to open the gripper is to write gripper register using Modbus RTU.
Control over IO may be possible if your gripper is connected on a UR CB Serie via a Robotiq IO coupling.
It is a bit complex but you I think you can have a arduino like system with a program monitoring a button and send a command via robot interface to open or close the grippe.
