Since DDS03.1-W050-B drives hardly ever fail, very few people actually know what to do if their DDS drive stops working. You might think that you can just replace your current drive with another DDS drive that looks the same, but this isn’t going to work. With 150 different Indramat DDS drives to choose from, and most of these drives look almost identical, the odds that you will actually get an exact replacement for your DDS03.1-W050-B drive are pretty slim.
Do you need to replace your DDS drive with an exact matching type code?
The answer to this question is yes. You can’t just replace your drive with one that looks the same, or one that has a fairly similar type code. You must have a drive with a type code that matches the type code on your drive exactly. The DDS03.1-W050-B drive, for example, has a max current rating of 50 amperes.
A drive that’s only rated for 30 amps, even if it’s a 03.1 series DDS drive, will not work. Similarly you can’t just replace your DDS03.1-W050-B drive with any old DDS drive that has a 50 amp current rating.
So how do you replace a DDS03.1-W050-B drive?
The process is fairly simple if you go through the right channels. Hunting for an identical replacement Indramat drive on eBay and trying to install it yourself, is going to waste a lot of time and a lot of money.
