Indramat motion control systems bring a lot to the table: they’re efficient, versatile, and they’re reliable. Few industrial motion control products can match Indramat’s durability and longevity. Of course, if your machinery never breaks, you won’t know how to fix it. This is why Indramat drive fault codes send factory floors into a state of panic. Sure, error codes are alarming, but stressing out doesn’t help the situation. Here’s your guide to clear Indramat drive fault codes quickly and efficiently.
Step 1: Keep your cool
There’s a difference in acting quickly and reacting frantically. Making decisions under distress can lead to some less than favorable outcomes. Panic is what leads to duct tape and solder repairs, or calling the cheapest or closest third party repair shop that you can find. Quick fixes rarely yield a good long term solution.
Just relax, take a deep breath, and make purposeful decisions that will restore your system quickly as well as properly.
Step 2: Check the manual
Now that you’ve gathered your composure you should refer to your manual. Look up the fault code in your Indramat troubleshooting guide. These guides provide a list of possible causes for error codes and the corresponding remedial actions. The causes are listed in order of likelihood.
Sometimes Indramat drive fault codes can be cleared by hitting the S1 button, checking parameters, or swapping out a cable. If that’s the case, great. If the error requires more knowledge, expertise, or hands-on assistance, you need to call in a professional.
