Establish rs485 connection with Tool


I am using a UR5e robot and i am trying to communicate with my Custom end-effector tool using rs485. As far as i have tried i am not able to find a way to access(send, receive data) that rs485 pin. Can anyone suggest a way to send commands to a robot end-effector via the rs485. Any help from your side would be of great help.

Thanks in advance,


Suggest you read this thread and may give you some idea.

Thank you so much for your response @sya . It looks like URCap is the only way to read and write from rs485 tool communication.

Hi @aswanthamang,

It is not necessary to be the form of URCap but it cannot be achieved by Polyscope or ur script directly indeed so far.


Thank you so much for your response. I will try with the daemon first.
Have a good day
