Anyone know the DPF operator to display pentration between bodies as a contour plot in mechanical?

I am trying to calculate the pentration between bodies for a deformed mesh at a specific load step.
On exploring a bit, I found the contact_pentration operator. But, I am not sure how it can be used. If anyone has any ideas/experience, please help!!

    my_scoping.Ids = cont_elems
    
    # Get penetration results
    contact_penetration = dpf.operators.result.contact_penetration() 
    contact_penetration.inputs.time_scoping.Connect(my_time_scoping)
    contact_penetration.inputs.data_sources.Connect(dataSources)
