    Hi Tao, It is possible that there is a hardware issue with the robot. I recommend you download the log files from the robot and send them to along with the serial number of your robot and the description of the issue. Best, Don

    Air supply, Vacuum gripper

    Hi Aurora, How are you controlling the valves? If the gripper is able to pick a part, it sounds like the vale is working but there may be an issue with how you are controlling the valve in the software. Please provide more information about the gripper you are using and how you are commanding the valve. Best, Don
  8. Hi Junchao, The screen you are seeing is expect. The robot will remain at this screen forever unless a ROS command is sent to change the display image. Once this screen appears, you can begin sending commands to the robot via a workstation. Best, Don

    Air supply, Vacuum gripper

    Do you encounter the same issue with the other valve? The holes you reference should not be plugged as these are exhaust ports.

    Air supply, Vacuum gripper

    Hi Live, You will need an external air supply. The vacuum grippers sold by Rethink Robotics include vacuum generators so standard out blowing air will work but you will need to supply the air as the robot does not have an internal compressor. In addition, the robot components use 6mm air hoses and connections. If you have a 12mm hose, you may need an adapter to connect to the 6mm components. Finally, we recommend using 60-90psi. Best Regards, Don

    Hi Senaa, This is possible if you boot into Intera. You can select the shipping pose option to shut down. Best, Don

    Hi Live, Are you using the SDK or are you programming via the Intera software? Thank you, Don
