I have a program written in Polyscope, there the idea is, that several if cases should react on the different states of the Digital Outputs.
What I have done until now is, I am able to open the Dashboard connection via python, there I can load the program, release the robot and start (play) the program in Polyscope.
But as soon as I try to send the command example; “set_digital_out(2,False)”
the program in Polyscope will stop.
The same when I connect with SocketTest and send there the same command.
Any Idea what I have to change? what i am doing wrong?
Polyscope will receive your code line as a new program that needs to be executed. Therefor it will it the running one and execute the newest one.
You can take a look here to gain knowledge about the secondary program option. That will allow you to execute a small program while the primary program is still running.
This is not the idea.
What I want to do is:
To be able to send in python a “signal” to the robot.
What I had done was, I had hardware switches on the Digital Inputs connected for a first try,
and now I want to exchange the switches with “signals” from python.
Is this possible?
The signals can be generated by your python sending secondary programs with write_output_boolean_register(…) and your primary program reading the signal with the function read_output_boolean_register(…)
Thanks, but this rings the next question…
I can set the digital out 1 to status true without any problem.
On the same way I tried to read the status of an other Digital out:
But at the moment I am not able to convert the answere, to have an idea if the status is True or False.
Do you have an example for this?
It seems like your overall target is to exchange data from a python process and URControl. And not the specific issue mentioned in the title of this topic Program stops as soon sending “set_digital_out(2,False)” if that is correct. I will suggest you to take a look at this topic:
And many of the other samples. for example:
