An Indramat E250 message isn’t technically an error code; it’s a warning diagnostic message. Warnings do not cause your Indramat EcoDrive to automatically shutdown. You still need to clear Indramat warnings as quickly as possible, however. If you experience an Indramat E250 message — or any Indramat warning, fault, or error code — call 479-422-0390 for immediate support.
What is an Indramat E250 warning?
The E250 Amplifier Overtemperature Prewarning indicates that the heatsink in the drive controller is getting too hot. Your drive generates this message if the heatsink reaches the maximum permissible temperature.
A few different things can cause this warning, but they all relate to cooling; in other words, you see an E250 message when your system is unable to properly cool the drive.
Possible cause for an E250 message:
- The drive controller’s internal blower fails.
- Climate control for the cabinet fails.
- Your cabinet is the wrong size.
How do you clear an E250 message?
Clearing this warning is pretty straightforward, but you will need professional Indramat support. You first need to determine the cause of the problem. The most likely cause is a defective internal blower. You need to replace the drive controller if the blower fails.
If your drive’s blower still functions, the problem is with the cabinet. This typically means that the climate control feature on your cabinet no longer works and your drive is getting too hot. The final possibility is that your control cabinet is the wrong size. Incorrect cabinet size affects your drive’s ability to dissipate heat.
