Is it possible to use the functions for the gripper and even the FTS over TCP or using socket commands? I suspect it's possible, but I haven't seen a guide confirming this.

    @bsawlor would that be on a UR robot, like starting scripts or command with a PLC? Or would it be on a completely different robot where you want to do the equivalent of the UR functions?

    @Etienne_Samson, this would be an external computer sending commands to a UR and the UR responding accordingly.  So if sending Robotiq commands via TCP or socket commands, to the UR to activate a gripper or read data from the FTS, would that work?

    @bsawlor for the FT-300 you can read the data directly on a TCP socket, find the info in section 4.5 of your manual.

    For the Gripper the easiest way to do what you want to do would be to start scripts on your UR that runs our functions, see the functions list in section 4.9.4 of your manual.
