This library page is no longer current, but we are keeping it as
a historical archive. It does demonstrate one way to deal with
specialized technical components on eBay and shows examples
of some of our product imaging work...

Sorry, we are COMPLETELY SOLD OUT!

We picked up a large quantity of superb quality Adept Robotic
Slider Linear Positioning Assemblies at a recent bankruptcy.

These actuators offer exceptional ruggedness and precision and are
repositionable to 0.4 mils or 0.0004 inch. They appear to have very
little if any actual use. All are mechanism only and include the servo
motor and precision encoder and two limit proximity sensors.

Drive electronics and system software and interconnect cables are
NOT included.

Apparently standard connectors seem to mate with distributor stock
AMP style CPC shells. Style 1, size 17. http://www.digikey.com or
http://www.newark.com are among many possible sources. Note that
the "15" pin connector is really a "16" pin one with one missing pin.

These sliders are currently offered as eBay Auctions, in our eBay Store,
and on our web Bargain Page. Our pricing averages twenty seven cents
on the original dollar. Additional specs and links can be found on our
eBay offerings.

The adept website is http://www.adept.com Adept also seems to have
a Spares, Upgrades, Rebuilds, Remanufactured Products service you
can contact through Hai Chang at (925) 245-8195.

One independent consultant with Adept interface expertise is Mike
Edwards
at (520) 620-6369.

FOB Thatcher, AZ 85552. We will gladly assist in loading. On request,
we can deliver free locally and to certain Tucson or Phoenix addresses
at our convenience for $29.

will be a third party $85 special packing charge in addition to the UPS
charges which depend on speed and distance. Special UPS Store
packing is required because of the extreme precision of these devices.

========================================

                  --- sold --- sold --- sold --- sold ---

News Flash: We just got three TWO METER (!) robotic sliders
in. These are Parker Hauser, 100 mm square, ribbed belt drive
in used condition from an automotive supplier bankruptcy. These
were subject to fairly light duty as SUV cargo net builders. Only
two have stepper motors. These are used open loop. And thus are
much easier to drive and interface. Numerous proximity sensors
are included. Believed fully usable. Just barely UPS shippable by
professional packing services. Or free local delivery, or free to
Tucson or Phoenix at our convenience. Inspection both welcome
and recommended. $990 each or $1990 for the lot FOB 85552.
You can email us for more info or visit our eBay Store.

The main photos are of Styles 1,2, and 5. Style #3 is similar to the
Style #2 photo except longer. Style #4 is similar to Style #5 except
shorter. Additional photos appear on our eBay Auction pages.

These are currently offered as eBay Auctions, in our eBay Store, and
on our web Bargain Page.

You can email us for quantity pricing and further details.

We also have some Allen Bradley Motor Drivers that APPEAR to
have OUTPUT compatibility with these Adept units. While much lower
in cost than Adept drivers, considerable expertise and additional
hardware such as a BASIC STAMP or an industrial control computer
would apparently be needed for encoder and control interface. We
cannot guarantee suitability of these units, but do offer a fifteen day
inspection privelege. ( $139 BIN ).
