Kindly donated to us by Queen Mary University's School of Electronic Engineering & Computer Science was missing arm and power cables. A copy of the original cable was made and used until the failure of the controller - it was then scrapped A generic one was then made up using RJ45 for the encoder cables and SPECON for the servo motors themselves
retired and scrapped
It was driven by an open source controller due to failure of the original controller
- Robot arm
- Type: RX60L
- Reference/machine number: 597411 - 01
- Fabrication Le F - 12 - 1997

- The STMBL along with Messa cards driven by linuxcnc have been used to control the arm, massive support has been received from the open source community (STMBL and LinuxCNC) as well as Messa who did a custom firmware reactivity for us while we were having a hack weekend - great international and multidisciplinary team work.

There is a 19 way cable running inside the arm, to allow external signals to be routed to the end effector. This uses a 19 way plug on the wrist joint and base called a Binder Connector.
