Abstract

A manipulator requires electrical, hydraulic, pneumatic, etc., connections between the movable arms and an interface. These cables and hoses, especially in the case of a pair of arms in the same frame, must be positioned so as not to interfere with arm movement and each other. Care must be taken that the connectors do not wear during movement.
