Hi @james2254 , don't know if you solved the issue.
After you connect the gripper, check with
Then check with
If that all goes well, then you also need to create a modbus config file (at least for me, it didn't work until I did this), you can run this bash script to do so:
# configuration of virtual port com FT X series FTDI_CONF_FILE='/etc/modprobe.d/ftdi_sio.conf' FTDI_CONF_OPTION='options ftdi_sio product=0x6015 vendor=0x0403' FTDI_CONF_ALIAS='alias usb:v0403p6015d*dc*dsc*dp*ic*isc*ip* ftdi_sio' if [ -f $FTDI_CONF_FILE ]; then MSG="FTDI conf file already exists." echo $MSG else MSG="FTDI conf file does not exist. Creating it." echo $MSG echo "# This file allows the ftdi_sio driver to use FT X series." > $FTDI_CONF_FILE echo $FTDI_CONF_OPTION >> $FTDI_CONF_FILE echo $FTDI_CONF_ALIAS >> $FTDI_CONF_FILE #reload the module for the changes to have effect modprobe -r ftdi_sio modprobe ftdi_sio fi
If all that went well, then you can run in one terminal (it does not print anything):
And in another terminal:
to get a simple menu to activate and move the gripper using the USB adaptor... the rest is up to you.
