Indramat’s reliability is a double-edged sword
One of the great things about Indramat servos is that they rarely need repairs or maintenance. Indramat products can run for decades without ever needing your attention. Reliability is an excellent quality in factory machinery.
However, there is one drawback to machinery that never fails: no one knows how to fix it.
When something does go wrong, the system generates an error diagnostic message that can help get you on the right track to fix the problem. Seeing an alphanumeric sequence doesn’t exactly tell you what’s wrong with the servo, though.
If you haven’t had to look up any error codes couple of decades, there’s a chance you’ve misplaced your manual. While requesting a replacement Indramat manual is certainly an option, it can be time consuming to look up the diagnostic message, and even then there’s no guaranteeing that you will know how to fix the problem.
Indramat repair and troubleshooting requires trained professionals who specialize in Indramat systems.
What causes an Indramat F860 error?
Unless you are experienced in Indramat repair, you probably have what an F860 error means off the top of your head.
An F860 diagnostic message is the fault code for Overcurrent: Short in Power Stage.
This means that transistor current has more than doubled the device peak current. When the maximum allowed peak value is exceeded, the drive is disabled, drive torque is released, and the motor stops.
There are a few potential culprits. There could be a short in the motor cable, a defect in the drive controller’s power stage, or the regulator is operating under the wrong values.
Fixing the error doesn’t always fall under the DIY category. Sure, checking a cable for a short-circuit and checking parameters are relatively simple, but replacing a legacy drive controller isn’t something that you can do on your own.
