MSL6000 Pass-Through Mechanism Motor Cable pinout

Hi,

I'm in the process of installing a Pass-Through Mechanism between two MSL6000s.

Unfortunately we appear to have mislaid the Primary Motor Cable, that goes from the master library to the pass through motor.

The connectors appear to be standard 15-pin VGA connectors... Does anyone know whether I can use a standard VGA cable as a replacement, or what the pinout of the cable is ??

Spares number is 246731-001.

Cheers,

Rob

No idea and never found adocumentation.

To be safe I would order the original spare part to avoid components damage.

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Thanks Torsten,

I agree that would be the ideal plan, however I need to get this library working for yesterday, and I'm being quoted 5 day lead times on the cable :-(

Anybody else know anything ?

Cheers,

Rob
