Yes, We Now Support Two Grippers on One UR Arm!
/ Most recent by Etienne_Samson
...actually, we support up to four Grippers on the same arm.
Our new Gripper URCap software upgrade now includes multiple Grippers control. But that’s not all!
Here is the list of new features and bug fixes on the new Gripper URCap:
Support for configuration and programming of up to 4 Grippers on the same UR arm. The Grippers can be moved all together or one at the time.
The Gripper can now be reactivated from the Installation tab.
- The toolbar and Edit Action screen now include buttons to set speed and force to min/max values in one tap.

I’d like to give a special thanks to our beta testers that ensured this new software upgrade is top notch: @Enric from Vicosystems as well as @Gerbert and @Evert from Gibas.
The part number is ACC-SPLIT-M12-2:1
The button "Go to position" always appears in gray.(not possible use this)

I could clear the bug either by rebooting the UR or be "awakening" the Gripper, I did a re-activate and it was working afterwards.
I will post as soon as we have a fix.
Just want to let you know we just release an adapter plate for the dual gripper.
You asked for it, we heard you, and here it is! Robotiq's brand new adapter plate for the dual gripper on Universal Robots is now officially available.
Made for Universal Robots
There's a slight change in the design from what you've seen previously but it's lighter, simpler and Plug+Play. The new adapter plate fits all Universal robot like a glove just like the rest of our products.
Some more specs:

I am currently developing a system with two grippers, one directly attached to a UR5, and one operating independently and attached to a remote mount. Our system will be out of reach of human operators and so we are controlling everything over TCP/IP with commands from a Python script; the teach pendant is not an option for us.
For the gripper on the UR5, we connect to it directly through the TCP port (63352) and controlling it with ascii commands such as "SET POS 250". Is there any documentation to tell me how I can connect to the second gripper over a TCP port? That is, how do I get the OS in the CB3 to forward data to/from a TCP port to the /dev/ttyUSB1 that gripper #2 shows up as? I am currently running UR software 18.104.22.1680.
Hope that helps!
