After an upgrade to the control unit on our ABB robot, we've had the old 
hardware sitting around and I'm curious if the stuff can be put to any 

More specifically, I'd be interested in interfacing the main servo drive 
unit (3HAC14546-6). Does anyone have experience communicating with these 
units? Or is there any documentation out there that could help? So far, 
the ABB library has not provided any useful information.

Nota bene: I'm aware that it would be difficult and probably illegal to 
reverse engineer the interface on these devices. I'm not looking into 
doing this.
