Emergency Stop Reset

Does anyone know if it is possible to reset an emergency stop event using a reset push button or programmatically? Thanks in advance.

You can do it through the dashboard server by sending “close safety popup” then “power on” then “brake release” to port 29999.


Obviously this should be approached with caution as if the situation is really an “emergency” then the system should not automatically reset without someone checking it over.

If it’s not really an emergency situation and is expected to happen regularly, then the safeguard stop should be used instead. This is much more straightforward to reset.



recently our UR 10 robot cannot be switched on as it says, “release the emergency stop” (picture below) even though all the external emergency buttons are reset. Even, i have followed the Dashboard server alternative. Is there any other alternative to try? Suggestions are really appreciated.
