i6000 Arrival

Submitted by gpmidi on Fri, 01/04/2019 - 14:00

The i6000 arrived yesterday. It's unpacked, off the skid, and in the garage. After putting a few bolts back in (holds the two chassis together) and bolting a few other things back on it's powering up and robotics are on. It shows as online.

However the drives aren't showing up. The UI indicates a few issues probably related to the CAN bus. That all seems connected though. So I'm not sure what's up right now.

Big Step Forward!

The robot in the i2000 is powering up and moving. It's getting caught up in a few places and I'm getting a low voltage warning too. Gotta figure out if it's the cable chain, the tracks (bottom bar was bent up a bit), or the robotics module that has all of the motor controllers in it.
