The Paused state indicates that your Recipe's Python process is active but has been temporarily paused to prevent further execution.

The paused state may be entered from the running state by pressing the Pause Recipe Button in the left sidebar menu. The Recipe transitions into the Paused state without any further input needed from the user.

In contrast to an E-Stop action, no Device actions are executed when a Recipe is paused. The Devices are left in the same state they were in before the pause button was pressed. For instance, if an MFPP Peristaltic Pump device was operating at 20 mL/min before the pause button was pressed, the pump will continue to operate after the button has been pressed.


While a Recipe is Paused, a user may still interact with and control any Devices by using their control buttons.
