In this example, the DELAY node introduces a pause in the robot armโ€™s operation for a specified duration.

The node takes in the time for the delay in seconds.

After initiating the delay, the node waits for the robot arm to become idle before proceeding.

The DELAY node is useful in workflows where you need to introduce a pause between operations, such as waiting for an external sensor to trigger or allowing time for a mechanical process to complete.
