I have a short question regarding the robot type in the new e-Series. I noticed that the
URCapAPI - getRobotModel() - getRobotType() methods still return
UR10 (without the
e) in Polyscope 5.0 simulator. On the other hand, I understand that Polyscope 5 and above will only be available for e-Series robots.
Is it safe to assume that if the software version is >= 5 the robot will belong to the e-Series, despite
getRobotType doesn’t inform it? I know that in the release notes it says CB3.x robots cannot be upgraded to Polyscope 5 for now, but I’d like to be sure.
Thanks in advance!
I would recommend using the SoftwareVersion object, and read major version to either 3 or 5.
This would be the best way to distinguish between these two generations.
Thanks for the reply! Then what I had in mind was right
