If you’ve ever looked up Indramat drive fault codes for DDS, DKS, DDC, and MDD you might have found that the error codes are missing a couple of characters and are completely wrong. There’s a simple explanation for that. While EcoDrive fault codes contain 4 characters, the fault codes for these drives are represented by just two characters.
Here’s an example:
- An EcoDrive motor overtemperature shutdown generates error code F219
- A DDS, DKS, etc. motor overtemperature shutdown generates error code 19
Here’s how to locate and how to clear Indramat drive fault codes.
Locating Indramat drive fault codes
Fault codes for DDS, DKS, DDC, and MDD drives are displayed on the H1 and H2 status indicators. You can find the H1 display on the front of the drive controller, and the H2 display on the optional SERCOS interface module.
You may or may not know that the status indicator doesn’t just show you error codes. If you see an alphanumeric code on the H1 or H2 display, don’t panic. The status indicator tells you the operating status of the drive, even when everything is fine.
Of course, sometimes these codes are in fact Indramat drive fault codes.
