Indramat error code E629 or E0269 tells you that your brake torque is too low. Often this error is an indication of a problem in the braking system of a machine. It refers to the amount of force that needs to be applied to the brakes in order to bring the machine to a stop. When the torque is too low, the brakes are not able to generate the necessary force, and the machine will not come to a complete stop.
The most common cause of a brake torque too low error is a problem with the brake components. This can include worn brakes, a malfunctioning brake caliper, or a layer of oxide on the brake from storage. Any of these can prevent the brakes from generating the necessary force to bring the machine to a stop. Additionally, if the brake fluid is leaking or the brake system is not properly bled, this can also lead to a low brake torque error. The
In order to diagnose the cause of the brake torque to low error, run a brake check command. This will abrade the brake and clean it of any substance that might be preventing full torque. You may need to run it more than once.
In some cases, a brake torque too low error can also be caused by an issue with the machine itself. For example, if the machine has been modified or the brakes have been adjusted, this can also lead to a low brake torque error. It may also be that the motor moved and is no longer in the right position.
In any case, it is important to address a brake torque too low error as soon as possible in order to avoid any potential safety issues. A technician should be consulted as soon as any error is detected in order to ensure that the braking system is functioning correctly. If the issue is not addressed, it can lead to a dangerous situation where the machine will not come to a complete stop when required.
