Hi 
I'm trying to communicate with the universal (K-1874) controller though Ethernet/IP connection, however all my attempt were unsuccessful.

I figured out that there is no connection whatsoever though the Ethernet port of my Desktop though control panel --> networks and Internet --> network and sharing center. Which doesn't show the any Ethernet connection.

However I can connect and used the gripper using the USB to USB port. 

Regards

    Hello,

    You can connect the universal controller to your PC via an ethernet port and control it with RUI if you have a Modbus TCP universal controller.
    You also need to set a fixed IP on your PC.

    The IP of the universal controller is: 192.168.1.11
    You can set this fixed IP on your PC:192.168.1.10



    I think you have an EtherCAT controller so you won't be able to connect on RUI via ethernet. Only a USB-USB connection is possible with RUI.

    I would recommend that you ask for the help of an integrator for your project.
    Unfortunately, we cannot do this integration for you.

    I hope this will solve your issue. Do not hesitate to contact us if you have any other questions regarding this issue.

    Kind regards,

    Marc-André Baron

    Hi Marc,

    I want to control the 2F gripper using my teach pendant. I am unable to do that. 

    I tried changing the IP address as you had suggested but the moment I change the IP address to 192.168.1.10 it shows a DHCP is not configured error and the internet connection gets cut off.

    Do you think that the reason I am not able to control the gripper using my teach pendant is because of the IP address not being in the same domain?

    "I think you have an Ether CAT controller so you won't be able to connect on RUI via ethernet. Only a USB-USB connection is possible with RUI."

    This is true. I'm sorry I worded it wrongly. I am able to control the gripper using RUI from an USB-USB connection, YES!
    But, I am not able to control the gripper using the robot controller (Teach Pendant) which is my primary concern.

    In my PC there are two connections. (Ethernet and Ethernet 2).  The internet is connected via the Ethernet 2 port.
