My question is mostly in the subject line already. Is there a way to switch an e-Series UR (a UR5, to be precise) from local control to remote control from a PC that is connected via Ethernet, without actually touching the teaching pendant?

The goal is to be able to run a UR-script program from a remote PC even when the robot is set to local control.

We have not found a way to do this. Per UR this is for safety reasons. If an operator were to work on the cell they would be able to put the robot in local control and nothing remote could take it out of that state until the operator places it back into remote mode. This is done for safety and to be fully compliant with the ISO standard which states there can only be one source of control which was an issue with the CB series robots since you could operate them both remotely and locally at the same time.

Yes, makes sense. I already suspected that it could not be done, but I had hoped that someone knew a way. Still, thanks for the answer.
