It may not seem like fault codes are a good thing, but they are an important feature of Indramat motion control systems. Fault codes indicate issues with the drive, controller, cables, or motor. They alert you to faults caused by incorrect parameters, faults caused by improper use, and other issues with your system software or hardware. Sometimes faults shut down your machinery, preventing damage to the system or injury to workers.
In other words, error codes protect your machines and workers, and provide you with the information you need to fix a problem when it occurs. These are good things.
However, it’s a problem when you can’t clear Indramat fault codes. Downtime is frustrating and expensive. We recommend that you call 479-422-0390 as soon as you see a fault code.
In-house repair vs. professional support
Sometimes a fault code indicates a minor issue. Troubleshooting can be as simple as looking up the code and following the steps provided in the manual. We offer replacement Indramat manuals for our customers.
Indramat drives, motors, and controls were built to last. Clearing an Indramat fault code can be as easy as swapping out a battery, replacing a damaged cable, or resetting the parameters. However, clearing a fault isn’t always just a matter of buying a new cable or checking the parameters and hitting the reset button.
Sometimes you might not be able to clear a fault code without specialized knowledge or equipment. Several Indramat fault codes require factory support.
