RTDE setting speed_slider_fraction value to 0

I’m using the RTDE interface to update the speed_slider_fraction value, and it works in most cases. If I try to update the value to 0 it doesn’t work on simulator version 3.14 (CB series), speed slider value only goes down to 2%. But on simulator version 5.9 I was able to update the speed slider value to 0% without any issues.

Is this a limitation on CB series robots?


If you set it to 0 on a real robot that effectively pauses the program. We limit the lowest setting to a value greater than 0 to prevent that issue.

This limitation is only there on the CB series robots is it? Because I was able to set the speed slider value to 0 on E series robot simulator (v5.9) using the RTDE interface.
