So the boss has brought me this puzzle to work on: It's a GE Fanuc servo amplifier, model A06B-6079=-H301. Apparently he knows a guy who knows a guy, etc. who is looking to get these and similar things repaired.
At the risk of hubris, I'm pretty sure I can do it. The problem is, I can't find any of the documentation I need to get started... What I'm looking for is something that would let me figure out what the inputs and outputs are, and what the inputs are supposed to DO to the outputs. There are a couple of big screw terminals at the top which are pretty obviously power in, and smaller terminals on the bottom that are going to be outputs to 3 servo motors. But there are a bunch of smaller connectors in the middle that are much more interesting looking .
I'm guessing (hoping?) that there will be some kind of digital input that I can talk to, and probably some analog inputs as well. There's a logic board with a lot of RS232 receivers on it but no transmitters(??) and some other logic-ky stuff. This plugs into all the high-power stuff. So I'm figuring I can work on the two halves separately.
Can anybody point me in the right direction for some documentation? I've found multi-hundred-page pdfs explaining how to use the high-level software to program a whole GE Fanuc robotic system, but I don't _have_ a whole system. All I've got is this one servo amp and a very well-stocked workbench.
