Robot operating mode

Ne2 Robot comes with 3 diffrent operating modes.

Current mode can be determined visually via the color of the Led Ring on the robot’s base.

The different modes are listed in the table below

Operating Mode


Manual mode - Robot calibration

The robot automatically defines the Zero positions of each axis.

Collaborative mode - Programming

Programming, editing, loading and execution of the programs

Manual mode - FreeMotion

The axes of the robot can be moved by hand.

Robot calibration

Ned2 does not have a mechanical calibration. The calibration phase is fully automatic and must be completed in order to control the robot. This matches up the position of each motor with its controller.

The procedure is as follows for the first 3 axes:

  1. the axis rotates in the direction as shown in the photo below until it stops;

  2. the axis stops when the limit is detected;

  3. the axis moves back in the opposite direction;

  4. the axis rotates in the direction up to the limit stop;

  5. the axis stops when the limit stop is detected, and the Zero position is set at this point.




Make sure that the robot is properly installed on a firm surface with enough clearance to avoid shocks and collisions. (Refer to Range of motion of the robot)

It is strictly forbidden to put your fingers and hands in the joints of the robot when it is in motion.

Manual mode- FreeMotion

This mode is used to move the joints of the robot by hand in order to put the robot back in the required position. This mode is activated either by pressing and holding the FreeMotion button located on the control panel or by pressing and holding the button available on the Niryo Studio programming interface .




Be careful not to put your fingers and hands in the joints or openings of the robot during FreeMotion mode.

Take great care when moving the robot by hand.

Be mindful of the gripping zones for the learning mode (see diagram below) and do not touch the motors.

Collaborative mode - Programming

This mode can be used to program, edit, load and run the robot’s programs. The robot automatically switches to this mode once it has been calibrated.



Be careful not to enter the robot’s working area to avoid any collision.

Watch the robot’s movements while using Niryo Studio.

Activate the emergency stop button in emergency or abnormal situations.
