Read Robot serial number via Ethernet communication


I would like to know if we have commands for reading robot serial number via Ethernet communication.

There are a few options;

Check the hostname of the associated IP addess, as the hostname is always “ur-XXXXXXXXXX” where XX… is the serial number, e.g. ur-2015351234

You can create a URCap, that reads the serial number, and transmits this.
Read in the URCap by String serial = this.urCapAPI.getRobotModel().getSerialNumber();
Where urCapAPI is the referenced name of what you have included the API as in the class.

You can read the urserial file in the root folder using sFTP.
