I'm wondering if it's possible to communicate with my FANUC R-30iB controller using my computer with python over ethernet/ip.
I want to use the open source computer vision libary in python to create an inspection application using a PoE camera mounted on my M-10iA-12S robot. The PC application should be able to load the correct tp-program, starte the robot and listen if the robot wants to activate the camera. Before purchasing "A05B-2600-R785 R-30iB Softw/ ETHERNET/IP I/O SCAN" which should enable me to communicate over ethernet/ip, I would like to check if any one have any experience using a python script to communicate with a fanuc robot.
So my question is: Does anyone know or have any experience using python to communcuticate over ethernet/ip with a Fanuc robot? If so, is it possible to starte the robot from the script?
Thank you guys!
