Program re-run behavior


We remotly control/manage a UR10 robot using the Dashboard communication.
Using the dashboard, we start a URscript programm running and looping on the robot controller.

When a safeguard stop appends (through the dedicated safety inputs), the program pauses (which is the expected behaviour since we wired a « Safeguard stop with automatic resume ») and then the programs re-run as soon as the safeguard stop disappears (which is also the expected behaviour).

The problem is that in some cases (see bellow) the above mentionned program does not re-run (it stays paused) when the safegaurd stop disappears. We have to manually press the « play » button (the one with the triangle) to make the program continue its execution. We have to do it once, and then the expected behaviour comes back. Until we experience the problem again.
We think that this misbahaviour is linked to previous phenomenon, such as multiple safeguard stop or more clearly after an emergency stop, a collision or a violation.

Have you ever experienced this trouble ? Do you have some andwers to fix this ?

Thanks in advance.

Best Regards

Dear you all, Dear UR team,
let me send a reminder on this topic : I am interested in the answer. Currently, a robot is running on the customer factory and the customer get bored because he has to press play manually after the safeguard stop in the situations mentionned by o.paris and erik fransson.
Thanks in advance.
