Dec 15 - working on VFD

Almost everything on this Allen Bradley VFD is very corroded. If I am going to re-use this equipment it will need to be completely disassembled, cleaned, and assembled one section at a time. Verification of each section as it goes back together would be a good idea.

The cabinet that surrounds the electronics appears to be the frame that all of the components and component assemblies are attached to. The assemblies are mounted in layers. I have labeled about 40 connectors and individual wires that carry signals from one assembly to another. Pictures have been taken and audio notes recorded of what is coming apart, and how it needs to go back together. The original intent was to removed the electronics from the cabinet and use what appeared to be the frame - similar to angle iron - to mount the electronics in the box of the truck. It appears that this plan must be change.

I have been very optimistic on the chances of getting this thing back together again and operational. That optimism is faltering.
