Hello! New to robotics and I can see I'm going to have to do a lot of reading up.
First off, however, this may seem like a dumb question but are there any cleaning tips you can give me?
I've ended up with what is supposedly a working CRS A255 arm and had no idea of its real value until I started looking on the internet. Now that I've seen what they can go for I've become a bit timid about 'cleaning' it up. I'm sure it doesn't need to be babied but I also don't want to wreck anything through ignorance.
My main concern is with the controller because in whatever configuration it was last used, it seems the housing was removed so that the case is just open and the circuits, etc., are all exposed. I'm guessing its use was industrial rather than in a lab because it's really not that clean in there. I've found some general resources for cleaning electronics but are there any specific items that anyone can thing of that I should be aware of? (also with regard to cleaning cables, etc.)
In fact any setup information would be incredibly helpful. I'll probably have to move a bit slowly because I've realized I'll have to dig out an old PC from the basement just to use the software.
Thanks in advance for any insight!
