Sensor Interface allows communication with robot control.

Ethernet-RSI permits external computer to communicate directly with motion system of KUKA Robot Controller, allowing computer to dynamically adjust current motion of robot. It can also stream data to external computer in real-time. Ethernet-RSI allows data to flow between controller and computer at rate of 83 Hz. It can use existing Ethernet port in controller or additional port using standard...
