Hi all! 

Here is this week's support question we got from a customer that might be of interest to you! We were asked if it is possible to export the data from the FT 300 or FT 150. In fact, the customer is going to use the Force Torque Sensor and needs to be able to record the force measured.

To do so, you can access the Data stream via Modbus RTU and record it to a CSV file, for instance. If you are over Universal Robots, you can connect the controller to a PC with an Ethernet cable and get the sensor's data through TCP port 63351. This information is detailed in this section of the instruction manual.

    I have a FT-300 Sensor connected by USB to the UR3 controller.

    I am interested in obtaining the sensor data (Fx, Fy, Fz, Mx, My, Mz) by Data Stream using Python Script.

    I followed Chapter 4.4.2 (Data Stream) of the Manual. I do not know how to write to the 410 register to receive the sensor data through the TCP port. 63351 of my machine.

    Can you help me
