UR5e/Cognex/Pickit

Hello all,

I have a UR5e that is connected to a Pickit 3D and a Cognex 8000 though a 10/100 Unmanaged Switch with POE.

I get intermittent communication loss between the Robot and both cameras.

I have made sure that the robot and cameras have matting network setting (IP in the right range and matching Subnet Mask). I am using CAT6 cables between everything.

I don’t know if I am missing something? Do I need a managed switch or a gigabit switch?

Any insight into this would be appreciated.

Thank you,
Doug
