Thank you so much Kwakisaki. I am really do not know how to show my deeply gratitude to you when i read your reply, just like my dream can be continue. I am very sorry because i have not find the nameplate on the control box, hopefully there still are. My robot type is UX150F - A004 manufacture numbers : 66366R0S1M, still attaching the U welding tool on it, my fingers are crossing to wish the robot is not too old to be help. Please do accept my apologies for my English, i am Vietnamese so spare me. Also please do forgive for my arrogance because buying robot with no knowledge at all. And please do not angry when i am asking for everything you list above. Yes everyone might call me Man but for robot i am just been born baby with all crying and yelling for knowledge. Here is some picture i have taking inside the control box, how silly me did not try to fing the name plate. Have try but can not upload picture.

See attached to attach image - make sure images are correct format and do not exceed file size.

Is the robot firmly secured to floor/pedestal/anchored so that it cannot fall over?
Do you have suitable voltage supply available?
Do you have all cables available between Controller and Robot including Teach Pendant - Can you list/provide image?

Thank you Kwakisaki, the control box coming with teach pendant. I will take photo everything tomorow such as cable,control box.... In Vietnam we use 220v 1 phase or 380v 3 phase 50hz but i can use transformer if we need other kind of voltage. Anyway I am thank you verymuch.

Bottom left side of Cabinet usually houses the autotransformer (behind access panels on the outside of Controller Cabinet).
- If you are using 380V 3 phase, then check/adjust the transformer primary is wired to 380v supplies for RST and suitable Earth Connection before applying power.

Dear Kwakisaki,
I have taking some picture and checking my cable and everything here is the list what I found :
1. 3 Cables, first side of head marking CN1 CN2 CN3 can be connecting good to Robot Port, the other side of the cable marking No20, No30, No40 can be connecting to 3 port behind the Control Box.
2. On top of control box is LCD and some switch saying AD Controller, it having Floppy Disk on Left Side and Right Side there is port for Teach Pendant. ( Picture of that Ad Controller and TP are include ).
3. In side the Control box, I see 1 big board mounted veritical on the wall having 3 boards connecting to it, also i found 1 additional Board marking CN1 CN2 CN3 CN4 connecting to the big board also with all the cable out but I dont know where to connecting it to the Robot.
4. At the Switch ON/OFF at front of control box have sticker saying AC 3 220v 60hz. I believe I have to wiring to cable in to that CP and suppy 220v 3phase 60hz electric to it.

Please do not hesitate to yell at me just to teach me, pointing me to right direction. I am very sorry for all the Trouble if I make to you. Once again I am very please and thank you very much for your Help.

Many thanks for images and appears you have all hardware and cables for default system.

1996 - 22 Years Old - This is oldest I have ever seen - This a challenge for me to assist you, and I like challenges. :top:.

Do you know if system was working before you buy, or has it been in storage?

Do you know how to use/send/receive Private Messages here in the forum?
- I have sent you a PM as I have some manuals, but too large to post here, so I have to email you - please reply to my email and I can send manuals for you.

Ok, so I have sent you manuals I could obtain - A55 Controller with UX150 Robot Series.

The board you spoke about CN1/CN2/CN3/CN4 is the 9ZR Board which is Input and Output card to link with PLC.
- These connections may not be needed.

Robot contains Batteries for Encoder Position memory and Controller contains batteries for program memory storage.
If Controller has not had power for long time, batteries maybe exhausted and would need changing - these may be difficult to obtain now.
- These are used to retain position/data when Controller is not powered on.
- If these are exhausted/empty, they will need to be replaced, data will be lost and robot position will be lost.
- But can be reset after battery change.

However, try and get powered up and see what errors are produced first.........

There are many versions of A and AD Series Controller.
- I think yours in AD Standard Type.

I am not sure about input voltage supply - please check on Auto Transformer what connections are in use - I think 3 phase 220vac.
- You do not want to put high voltage in by mistake as it will cause irreparable damage.

 Thank you very much Kwakisaki !!

I have locate on the robot there is small pocket with 1 board and many wiring, include 2 x AA Battery ( pretty clean, i see no dust at all ). I have not taking picture of it, how idiot i am.
Here is my plan, I will taking picture of the Transformer, the Batteries, and everything else I think should help us .
As I have read the Manual you sent to me, the Control Box can be use 50hz electric. So I hope after we examinate the Transformer, we can decide to change the Transformer.
If not suitable I will just have to buy Seprate Transformer changing my current electric to 3 phase 220vac 60hz. I have learnt 50hz and 60hz are different, mixxing each other will harm in some way.
And then i will try to power the controller up without connecting with robot to find some error.
Yes you are very correct Kwakisaki, I do believe my Controller is Standard type.

I know I have asking too much from Kwakisaki, and everyone please allow me to be more greedy just to ask for help from you all.
Thank you and very greatful to have help from Kwakisaki and everyone. I owe Kwakisaki and veryone Big Time !!
 My very best Regards To Kwakisaki and everyone,
   Trung

Yes, those batteries will be used to power the encoders, and may need replacing.
The other batteries are soldered to the 9ZA board and these are for the data memory backup, again these may require replacing.

Attached is a clip from the Controller Installation Manual, this appears to be your Controller, I have circled the Power Supply Requirement, as long as you can check/confirm the fitted transformer settings and match incoming supply, you should be able to supply correct power.
As far as I know, Kawasaki will run off 50 or 60 hz supply with no problem - all specification manuals appear to stipulate 50/60 hz operation.

Dear Kwakisaki and everyone,

I have attach 2 picture 1 of Transformer and 1 of Robot Battery.
My electric in Viet Nam is 3 phase 380vac 50hz. I think I should connecting it to 3 connection of 400v on Transformer ( as it show only 440 - 400 - 220 - 200 ) and because of Manual saying + 10% or -10% so i hope 380v will be fine.
To be correct I will connecting Electric ----> Switch ON/OFF CP on Control Box L1 L2 L3 -----> Transformer.

Should I turn the Control Box on without changing all batteries ? If I am not mistake, I did not find any information about those batteries on Manual.

Next week I might have to take a little trip to country side for Tree Inspection. I will try to update as soon as I can, Please stay in touch with me. Thank you Kwakisaki and everyone.

The batteries will not prevent the Controller from turning on.
- Therefore you do not need to change the batteries just yet, it may be that the batteries are good, so I would leave them for now.

All Kawasaki Controllers are wired to the supply via the isolator switch.

Your 380vac supply should be ok, just make sure you have set connection to correct primary on transformer first.
