If you’ve ever cracked open an Indramat product manual or trouble shooting guide, you know that they make for some pretty dense, technical reading. In fact, the manuals can be difficult to understand. Indramat manuals are chock-full of special jargon, terminology, and technical specs. So just how much do you need to know about Indramat systems?
Indramat systems are complex
Indramat technical guides, project planning manuals, and trouble shooting guides are filled with jargon and terminology that the average person might not be familiar with. Granted, the average person doesn’t own an Indramat motion control system, but that still doesn’t mean you have to possess a deep, thorough understand of how motion control systems work.
You don’t need to know how exactly how a computer works in order to use one. Sure, you need to know how to turn it on and operate it effectively, but you’re not expected to know how to fix it if something breaks in your computer. You don’t have to read through a dense technical manual and make the repairs yourself. You call someone who fixes computers for a living and let them take care of it for you. The same is true for Indramat owners.
Do I need a technical understanding of Indramat systems?
You don’t need to know the specific differences between MDD and MKD servo motors. You don’t need to know the exact motor temperature at which a motor overtemperature shutdown occurs (it’s 150°C). And you don’t even need to know what an F220 error code is, or what causes it.
Knowing these things can be beneficial, but it’s not necessary.
