Shown below is my Scorbot ER4-PC robotic arm working cell.

I have modified my ER4-PC Umbilical cable, by soldering a DB9 connector to each set of wires for each Axis Motor on the Robot. I purcahsed this unit broken and the cable had been cut, and I was deprived of its stock 50-Pin connector.

Performing this MOD allowed me to interface the Robot to a Scorbot "CONTROLLER-A" robot controller and run it in the "Scortbot ERV+" mode.

ER-4PC User Manuals

Below are download links to the ER4-PC Robot User manual, and also the User manual for the "Controller-PC" robot control module. This controller manual covers the required software settings, and also covers the Controller-PC "Servo Control card". (Card model "PC11000").

The software interface for this "Controller-A" model is called "ATS" which stands for "Advanced terminal software". The language used to program the robot is called "ACL" or "Advance control Language". The ATS software package is also a DOS based control software.

The interface from the PC to the Controller is an RS-232 serial connection.

 

Shown below are a series of screen captures of the "ATS" software GUI and a few of its sub-menus.

A warning at the bottom of the screen is shwon when your controller is unable to connect to the PC software via the RS-232 serial interface.
