need part number off Adept Ultraone robot

I need the part numbers off of 3 cables on an Adept Ultraone robot to assist me in getting replacement cables for the used Adept Ultraone I
am trying to bring to life. If anyone has access to one of these, can you do me a favor and jot down the Adept part number on the following cables and email the part numbers to me? I will then give them to a place supplying used Adept parts who thinks they may be able to provide me with the cable. The cables I need help with are:
1. arm power cable - from amp chassis (j17) to JM connector on robot y-axis interface bd 2. main arm signal cable - controller chassis (J5) to JX conn on robot y-axis interface bd 3. secondary arm signal cable - controller chassis (J2 and j6) to JC conn on robot y-axis interface bd
These 3 cables run from the back side of the controller or amp boxes (19 inch rack type enclosures) to the robot and connect to a bd under the a sheet metal cover near the x axis drive motor and should be about 10-15 feet long. I can send you some digital pics of these locs if it would help.
Before you suggest calling Adept, I have and they quit supporting this robot 4 yrs ago and are not able to offer me any help.
Thanks in advance for your help,

why not just fabricate them yourself... or get someone local to do it. It would sure be a lot easier and cheaper.

Yup, thats my suggestion too, John.
If he doesent know how to identify the components and locate the pinouts himself in order to fab his own cables, he would to well to locate someone who can do this.
Beings as the machine is lacking oem support, likely it is unrealistic to expect reliable service from it in the long term without retaining a tech that is or has at least through initial setup become familiar with its internal configuration.
=( This hurts bad......)
Suggest Doug might consider contacting Michael Gailey, he's a pretty straight shooter.
IIRC, he is near your area and probly could suggest a competant tech to assist in ressurecting said beast.
=( damn that hurt....Oh....I know.....)
Doug,
Just make sure Michael shows you his permit from the FBI else checks his gun at the door, and dontcha go in a buying no bootleg copies of BobCad offa him either....

I'd be happy to make the cables myself if someone would give me the pinout, which a supplier possibly could do if I had the part number for the cable so they could look up the cable drawing. There are about 30 pins on each cable, and I would prefer to avoid the reverse engineering of tearing apart the boards on each end where the cable terminates and tracing wiring to guess at the function of each pin in the cable. I have done that bf, but it takes alot of time, and I'd much rather give the used parts supplier the cable part # and buy it from him.
Does your friend, Michael Gailey, have any experience with Adept robots?
Thanks,
Doug Danielson

In article <17d323d.0405190448.2c542a03

Have you tried contacting used robot dealers? A Google or Thomas Register search will turn up plenty of leads.

I would try GlobalSpec http://www.globalspec.com
They have a robotics section and one can search by specifications to connect to suppliers. They have an engineering search engine also.

Understood--my only point being that upon failure to locate said cables on the used market, a competent tech should be able to fab one up in less than a days work.......

I havent a clue as to Michael's experience with robotics--you would have to ask him........the referral was given simply because I felt he might know of a competant tech in your geographical location.
And if Michael is my friend, I shudder to think how any enemies might feel about me.
Good luck on your project.
