Hi everyone,

I was wondering if it is safe to around the UR when the Robotiq Camera is going through the various calibration positions? Are the safety settings active during this calibration process? Or should I be at a safe distance during the camera's calibration?

    @Tim_Smith the robot safety settings are respected at all time when you use any of the Robotiq software, same thing during the the calibration. When you start that, we run a program and show you the snapshot position interface. When you start the calibration, you are still inside a program and safety settings are still valid.

    Like any time the robot is operating, safety should be considered, respect your risk assessment. So yes, stay out of the way of the robot. If you have a dangerous tool mounted on the camera, you need to consider it and do you risk assessment, you will probably need to fence the robot cell if you do so.

    If you happen to have a safety stop during the calibration process, you will need to exist the wizard and start over. Below are some photos of what will happen:
