acquire waypoints form a PLC
#1
Hello 

im am currently working on a project which requires Robodk to acquire robot waypoints through a PLC,
is there any other methods/modules to setup communication with a PLC apart from the Python and a Modbus library,and the post processor suggested in the above answer ?

Hi Jimmy,

Does an OPC UA server work for you?

Jeremy

thank you for the prompt reply

my current project requires to pickup and object with a UR5e robot arm, from a mount that is connected to an actuator,and the actuator which is controlled through a PLC.Our plan is to input the position of  the actuator to Robodk and use the path planning/simulation of the object pickup task.

if my understanding is correct from,it is possible to acquire positions through a PLC with OPCUA support.
I assume it requires the PLC to be OPCUA compatible,in the case its not ,is there another methods that you would recommend for the above men mentioned you would recommend ?

Hi Jimmy,

Apart from building a solution using one of our API (Python, C#, C++), no there's no built-in feature to do so.

Pretty much anything can be integrated to RoboDK using our API though.
