Note

  1. The values of Robotic Node Identifier (3010,0092) within the Robotic Path Control Point Sequence (3010,0097) may identify Robotic Node positions that are pre-defined in the device configuration. This Attribute is distinct from the RT Control Point Index (300A,0600) , which simply indexes items within the Robotic Path Control Point Sequence (3010,0097).
