Connect to the robot

The IP of the robot (or the COM port number for RS232 connections) is needed to properly set the communication with RoboDK. Follow these steps to verify the communication with the robot:

1.Select ConnectConnect robot. A new window will appear.

2.Set the IP and port of the robot (or the COM port if the connection is through RS232).

3.Click the Connect button.

4.Refer to the appendix if any problems arise.

If the connection is successful you should see a green message displaying Ready. The position of the virtual robot should exactly match the position of the real robot if we select Get current joints. Alternatively, select Move to current joints to move the robot to the current position set in the simulator. The window can be closed and the connection will remain active.
