The corresponding conditions of the MPO-500 also apply and can be found at Transport.

Unpacking and Assembly

The mobile robot MMO-500 is packed in a rugged wooden box which can be reused for future transports.

Carefully lift the control cabinet onto the platform’s top plate and position it as shown in the figure below. Make sure that the front of the cabinet’s base plate is flush with the front of the inner aluminium profiles on the platform’s top plate.


Controller cabinet and robot arm mounted to mobile platform

Now fasten the control cabinet to the mobile platform using the counter sunk screws that were included in delivery. The cover plates at the front and the sides of the control cabinet (marked in red in the figure) can be removed to provide easy access to the inside of the cabinet.

Connect the cables inside the control cabinet to the appropriate plugs of the mobile platform. Please see the electrical circuit diagram for details.

If the robot arm was shipped separately, position it on top of the control cabinet as shown above. Then fasten it securely using the M8 screws included in the delivery. Finally plug the robot arm’s cable into the socket at the underside of the controller box.

Installing the Auxiliary Batteries

In order to extend the robot’s uptime, a second battery pair can be installed into the controller cabinet.

Before installing the auxiliary batteries, please turn off the robot and fully charge both the batteries that are currently used in the robot as well as the additional battery pack.

Remove the front plate of the controller cabinet and place the batteries inside the aluminium frame on the cabinet’s base plate, with the battery cables facing into the cabinet.


Position of the auxiliary batteries


When the auxiliary batteries are in use, the robot must only be recharged by connecting the battery charger to the robot manually or by using the automatic charging station. Do not recharge either pair of batteries individually by connecting them to the battery charger directly.

Two regular ATO fuses (32V) inside the cabinet protect the electrical systems from excessive currents.
