A project log for An Adventure With a 6/7 Axis Robot Arm!

Being put in charge of the new 6400R ABB robot arm, I'm going to do my best to learn and share everything i find out about this beast.

So here's the puzzle. confirming that the 220v 3 phase labeled box is actually what it says. I disengage the safety so that worst set of contacts inside the box become hot. This is definitely not something i tell anyone else to do if they are at all the careless type of person. I for one do my best to respect contacts that have the ability to kill me. Once i had the three legs hot, I could then meter out AC between legs and legs to ground.

Metering the legs in the box yielded these numbers:
