@Tyler_Berryman do you guys have any specs on how fast the gripper should be able to open and close or what the speed settings relate to?  I was doing a demo today for a potential customer and we were seeing it take up to 1.5 seconds to close the gripper from position 100 to 250 at a speed setting of 255.  This seems slow to me but I have no specs to compare it against.

    @matthewd92 what is the force setting on your gripper during this motion?

    So I set up a simple program that fully closes the gripper (255) from a fully open position (0).  I set the Force to both 0 and 255 then recorded times using a background thread timer set to increment at 125 Hz.

    Here are the results of the testing that I did with this gripper.



    I was able to find the issue I was seeing earlier, the template that I was using never set the speed and force, just set a variable which was never used from what I can see.  It might have been an older template as this robot is not new.

    This was done using the 1.0.10 firmware, and making URScript calls, rq_move_and_wait(255).  I will do some further testing using the URCap to see how its speeds relate.

    Still curious to see how this compares to the specifications for the unit.
