You know about servo motor and servo drive fault codes, but what do you know about power supply faults? Indramat power supply faults are different than servo motor and drive faults. Power supply faults include everything from blown fuses to shorts in the unit to improper voltage.
LED display faults
Indramat power supply faults appear on the diagnostic display. This display consists of red and green LED lights. The exact number of lights – and what those lights indicate – depends on the type of Indramat power supply module you have.
In general, shining green lights or unlit red lights are good, while shining red lights or unlit green lights are bad.
Some power supply modules feature a digital display in addition to LED lights. For example, KVR and TVR units come with LEDs and a “two-place seven-segment display” to indicate operating status of the power supply.
This display provides more detail about power supply faults.
Consult your operating manual to understand Indramat power supply faults.
Clearing Indramat power supply faults
Clearing fault codes for your Indramat power supply unit is a good start, but you must also clear the error messages before you can operate your machinery. Hit the S2 reset button or cut power to reset your device.
You can’t always clear faults on your own, however. Sometimes you need assistance from an Indramat specialist.
