Indramat error code F268 is a non-fatal diagnostic message that indicates a brake fault in the system. There are a few different things that can cause a brake fault. Clearing an F268 code can be as easy as re-connecting a cable, or it could be as costly as replacing the entire motor. The quickest way to determine the cause of your Indramat errors is by calling 479-422-0390 for professional support.
Here’s what causes an F268 brake fault message, and what you should do to fix it.
What causes an Indramat F268 brake fault?
An F268 error code appears if the motor’s braking current exceeds the controller’s permissible range. This happens when one of the following occurs:
- The power supply isn’t connected properly.
- The motor cable isn’t connected properly.
- The brake is defective.
- The controller is defective.
How do I resolve an Indramat brake fault?
The causes for this error code get progressively worse — which is actually a good thing. Indramat manuals list the possible causes for errors in descending order from most likely to least likely cause.
If the problem is in the power supply or motor cable, you may just need to reconnect or replace the correct cables. However, if your brake or drive controller is defective, the fix isn’t quite as simple. For a defective brake, you may have to replace the motor. If the drive controller is defective, you may have to replace the control.
Your Indramat manual is a great resource, especially when you’re dealing with Indramat fault codes. Some Indramat errors can be fixed with little trouble — a loose or defective motor cable, for example. However, without access to a manual, you can’t really start the process of fixing the issue with your motion control system. Fill out this simple form to get a replacement manual for your Indramat product.
Not all issues can be resolved quite so easily, though; you can’t fix a brake or replace a motor on your own.
