Can I run Labview via teach pendant?

Hello everyone,

I want to know that is robot allowed to run other applications, say Labview, on tech pendant while Polyscope is still running?
In other words, can Polyscope run on background while Labview can control robot via teach pendant?

If anyone knows, please tell me.
Thank you

I do not think that it is possible to acces the OS via Teach Pendant, therefore no. But it might be possible to exchange data with an external device, running Labview. However, i am also a rookie so dont take my answers too seriously.

I believe you can connect a keyboard then on the keyboard press Ctrl + Alt + F1, and the screen will then switch to a terminal window. Once done you can press Ctrl + Alt + F7 to return to the Universal Robots User Interface.

Based on this you could open LabView from the terminal interface…there is not a GUI desktop installed but it does run Debian. As long as you have a version of LabView that can be installed on Debian it should work.
You will have to watch system resources as the robot is built to run its software and that utilizes a good bit of the available system resources.
