Hello , I'm Kasem ,Mechatronics Engineer
I want to control Universal Robot UR3 /UR3e   using Profinet from Beckhoff PLC , i successfully  established the communication and was able to read joints actual positions and write joints target position and execute it using UScript (servoj ) , I want to completely control the robot without the teaching pendant , i used the default program and auto initialization and ON/OFF  features using digital inputs 

Now i wonder how to enable Profinet  by default when the robot power turns or remotely using a digital input so that i don't have to use the teaching pendant ?

Best regards

    Once you enable profinet in an installation file and save that file it will be enabled at startup. Make sure to name the file default.installation or you will need to load the installation file at startup which can be done over the dashboard server. 

    Also make sure you define your default program to load at startup.
