Troubleshooting Indramat Error Codes

Indramat systems rarely fail, which means that people hardly ever get experience with troubleshooting Indramat error codes. Here’s some information that can help you work through Indramat errors, or call 479-422-0390 for professional Indramat support.

Making sense of diagnostic messages

Your system doesn’t just generate error codes to indicate a problem with your machinery. Indramat motion control systems provide diagnostic messages to indicate the operational state of your drive.

This includes:

  • error diagnostic messages
  • warning diagnostic messages
  • command diagnostic messages
  • drive mode diagnostic messages
  • operation status

Error codes appear on the H1 display of your Indramat EcoDrive. The four-character diagnostic number appears in two parts. For example, an F228 Excessive Control Deviation message will alternate “F2” and “28” on your H1 display.

If you have multiple error codes, the codes appear in order of priority with the most urgent error appearing first.

Check your Indramat manual or troubleshooting guide

The first thing that you should do is look up the diagnostic message in your Indramat manual. If you lost your troubleshooting guide in a cabinet drawer — or a digital cloud — we are happy to provide our customers with a replacement Indramat manual.

You can troubleshoot a number of Indramat error codes in house without extensive technical knowledge of Indramat systems. Your troubleshooting guide can walk you through the possible causes and remedial actions of the error.

The possible causes of your Indramat error are listed in order of most likely to least likely. Always start at the top of the list of possible causes. Eliminate the causes in order of likelihood before moving on the the next possible cause.
