UR3 with Balluff vision TCP/IP connection
/ Most recent by Hyubios
lately I am working on a project in which I wanted to make a connection between UR3 and Balluf vision controler via TCP/IP protocol. On the camera site, the program is waiting for a trigger to make a photo, then analyze the data and create a response with a string value. The controller is configured to connect via TCP/IP, with IP 192.168.82.83 and port 36701, which cannot be changed.
For a UR3 cobot, I set the network on 192.168.82.84 and the same mask as camera. I am using two functions for communication: Socket_open("192.168.82.83", 36701, "socket_0") and string=Socket_read_string("socket_0", prefix="(", suffix=")") as the output string are in brackets.
Unfortunatelly, I am not able to receive or send any data from/to UR/camera, and now I do not know what to do. Do I make anything incorrect, or do I miss something?
Does anyone made some projects with Balluff vision / UR cooperation, or do You know what should I do to make this problems be fixed? I would be much obliged for any responses or help
