The Operator's Panel is a central controlling station for hardware components of a Robot System. The operator's panel can be opened by clicking this menu item in the left navigation menu. By using the Operator's Panel it is possible to:
- Control the robot: this can be done in a Cartesian mode by controlling the TCP1 in base coordinates or in tool coordinate system. The third mode is controlling directly the joint angles of the robot.
- Control the gripper: close and open the gripper, setting a certain speed and a certain force, etc.
- Control the IOs: activate and deactivate the digital IOs2 of the robot controller.
- Other functionality: depending on the active components installed on the Robot System, e.g. camera tab will be displayed, datastore database tab, etc.
