Mydata TP11 UFP hardware initiation failure | 20 July, 2006

I have a TP11 UFP without the hydra option and have had difficulty keeping it running. The latest problem is a hardware iniation problem which in the past was a PAIB board failure which I replaced about one year ago almost to the day. Has anyone seen this as a common failure on these machines? I would welcome any sugestions on keeping this thing going consistently.

Ev,

This error could be caused by any number of problems.

Is there an error message in the message window before hardware initiation error? If so, what is it? A failure in any axis (x,y,z,c,theta,y-wagon,tray-wagon) could cause your symptom.

Paul,

the error says "MOT1-38-247 MSETDYNX: Xwagon fan not working." I have checked...the X motor fan and it is working...the fan behind the PAIB board is also working...I checked this because there is a connector marked X wagon fan on the PAIB board that is connected to a fan and this fan is working. I have swapped the MOT cards around ....to no avail. I am obviously missing something

Ev,

That's a new one for me. Sorry, can't be of help on that problem. Good luck and keep us informed.

How does the machine sense that the fan is working/not working? The fan may be operational but the sense mechanism may be at fault.

My focus has moved to the X motor itself. The one common factor in this paricular problem has been the time of year. The day was a particularly hot day with high humidity. Even though there is a "Xfan" connection on the PIAB board I do not believe this fan to be the culprit. There is another input to the PIAB board directly from the X motor called a temp sw and a brake i/p. I believe this temp sw is the culprit because it sees an overtemp situation and shuts the X motor down. Naturally since the weather in the last few days has been cooler, the machine initiates fine. I also put the original PIAB board back in the machine and it continues to initiate the way it should. I have vacuumed and cleared away any accumulated dust from the area around the motor and I have removed the cover off the motor enclosure as well as off the motor itself. I'll keep you posted. Thanks for your interest.
