Had been meaning to replace the batteries in the servopacks for months now but kept putting it off. Well, it bit us today. We got the batteries replaced and the alarms cleared but are still having issues resetting the encoder origin point. So this week's tip is to remember to replace your batteries, write the date replaced on the cabinet door, and add it to your preventative maintenance schedule. Thankfully Kitamura has excellent phone service and I'm sure we will be back up and running Monday.
