I'm working on a project with a COGNEX In-Sight 2800 Vision sensor and a Universal Robots UR10.
The communication between them follows the Ethernet/IP protocol.
I contacted the COGNEX support, because I was having some problems in the communication, and they told me I needed to import the EDS files to the robot.
I already have those files in a USB-pen, they were installed with the camera software. My issue is that I can´t import them to the robot controller, I don't know if it is the files format, or if I'm trying in the wrong spot of the controller.

Have someone ever tried to import/install those files in UR10/ or other controller?

Thanks in advance!

    Maybe you could contact cognex support again or eventually universal robot support.

    @vasco_dias24 the UR does not have internal support for EthernetIP scanner, the robot is an adapter only and requires a scanner device.  That is the device you would load the EDS file on.  This is normally a PLC and is used to transfer the data between the camera and the robot.  A lot of traditional robots have the ability to have an Ethernet/IP scanner running on the robot controller but not UR.  You will need a PLC or use a different protocol such as tcp/ip socket which is what we normally used with our Cognex systems but not all cameras support that so you have to make sure your camera does.
