Each joint must be within the passing threshold. If any joint fails, the Workcell build and port configuration needs to be reviewed. The passing thresholds are the following:

  • Joint 1: 1600 - 2000
  • Joint 2: 1900 - 2400
  • Joint 3: 1700 - 2100
  • Joint 4: 200 - 650

Ensure all devices are fully inserted into the correct V5 Smart Ports on the Brain. If any joint fails, view the troubleshooting steps in this article.
