UPDATE ! Vacuum Grippers Firmware & URCap
/ Most recent by David_Gariepy
A new Vacuum Gripper Firmware update is now available ! Here are the new features:
Toolbar/ UR+ Menu
The toolbar will now be available during your program execution, so you can control in real-time your Vacuum status.
A new vacuum status section where you can configure your maximum and minimum vacuum percentage, and time-out.
Control up to four Vacuum Grippers independently, with the possibility to combine an AirPick and an EPick.
With the ‘’Wait until object is detected’’ option, go to the next step as soon as the object is detected.
The installation of the firmware update is mandatory to have the new Object Detection feature and the following upgrades:
Timeouts and object detection management
Will standardize grippers behavior.
Will optimize object detection to minimize object drop.
Consume power within the available range of the robot.
Continuous pump acceleration
Makes pumps accelerate at a continuous rate.
Some improvements have been made in the maximum vacuum detection to enhance the Smart Mode while the Vacuum is gripping porous objects.
Minimum vacuum detection point
This feature detects when the minimum vacuum point is approaching, so it can maintain vacuum over a minimum vacuum level.
This update makes Vacuum programs more robust for the standard and I/O Couplings.

I don't know how to input the byte and their byte order..
I just want the airpick 1.open 2.pick 3.place 4.close
The section 4.7 of the gripper manual list some examples as well as byte order and signification.
The process is the same with vacuum gripper.
