Universal Robot Safety Password

If you need to access the safety configuration but the password is unknown you can remove it.

Log in using an SFTP client (WinSCP) or through SSH.

  • Username = root
  • Password = easybot

The folder you arrive in will have a file called:

Remove this file and restart the robot. Now the safety password can be set up again.

Is this possible with the UR5 robot? Is there a way to factory reset the UR5 also?

Hey Austin,

Sorry for the late reply.

Yes it is possible to login to the UR5 robot this way.

What do you want to do exactly? Do you want to use a fresh installation file?

Or do you want te replace the image with a fresh one?

NOTE: Reflashing your SD card or USB stick will delete all your programs and calibration files, make sure you always have a full backup before doing any memory replacement or image re-install.
