been playing with a abb nextmove e100 there pretty cool trying to get roborealm to talk to it, not sure were to start. it has Ethernet, USB CAN bus, serial. abb uses a language they call mint its like basic, the ethernet is not standard ether.  guess im looking for a point in the right direction

You will most likely be writing your own protocol using either Ethernet or Serial to the robot. You can have a look at the Socket_Client module and/or the Serial module to create that connection. It will be tricky so try to keep the communication as simple as possible.

While an ABB Nextmove module in RR is possible its just not something we received any interest on nor have a relationship with ABB to create such a module.

Hi Jonathan,
Could you use the Modbus TCP/IP module. We use it here for talking to a SCADA System. It works well and is easy to use.
