I got this error too:
RAM: F0034 CMOS Time Error
CPU: F0027 Unrecoverable Power-UP Error
I hope it is only battery it has changed 28.1.10 (5 years ago)
- I ordered new one..
I thry copy files form "boot disk v5.2" to another disk an it didin't work only when copied floppy disk it worked so it needs to bee identical and all data in right place, so I have 10 or more Alien binary disc V5.2 to be sure I have some one that works.
I have electrical diagram of Intermac: MASTER BEVEL 2300 (I scanned and make it a PDF)
If someone need it still...
Thanks for your reply.
I need electrical diagram for MASTER BEVEL 2300. Can you send me PDF on my e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
About the Floppy Discs, is it possible you to make image files of them and send me too on e-mail?
Also I like to ask you about the battery: Is there any special procedure of changing? Give me the battery model to be sure, and send me address from where you purchase that battery.
I found Allen Bradley disk for formatting from Master Edge 4000 machine.
I start formatting according manual I downloaded from: Zippyshare.com -
When I start installing on screen appears: 8601 AT/MC Release 5.0
-Is that correct version for MASTER BEVEL 2300 we have? I think it must be 5.2 ???
- Here is little confusing: On ITEM 9 writes: "Make sure that E-STOP are depressed"
And on ITEM 13 is: "release E-STOP on NC" That's don't have sense.
So I press and release E-STOP on NC.
After that there is no DEBUG on screen like in manual. So, I can't make or enter nothing from ITEM 15 to ITEM 32. Why ???
On ITEM 33 and 34 is press and release E-STOP on CNC Only this E-STOP from OSAI controler have impact. Other E-STOPs on machine doesn't.
I do that and I have " ** INIT ABORTED ** " according ITEM 35
According ITEM 36 I press white arrow and on screen is FILMS3 20 instead FILMS1 20. I dont know why is that ???
Any way I continue on ITEM 37, so I press ENTER and I do the same according from ITEMS 38 to 57.
After that again I have problem: I don't understand ITEM 58 " Transmit machine data by PC to CNC. Wait end of operation."
- How to transmit machine data?
And next on ITEM 59 I can not see the content of PGCFIL file.
So I stop here and can not continue according this manual for formatting.
Any one can help me?
Anyone have original Version 5.2 disk for BEVEL ?
I finish with FORMATING and now I have new situation:
1. I restart few times the machine, and every time it's starts up from Allen Bradley floppy disc. is it normal?
2. I notice that files I load in "/MP0" are still there. So, what can you tell me about that, the battery keeps this files in RAM but not the program, so every StartUp I must use floppy disk?
3. I try to enable the machine with push button: "Control ON". The servo drives going GREEN light for only few seconds. The machine like going ENABLE and DISABLE next second. And on screen was no message.
- I have one message first time I was finish FORMATING, and the error message is: "FILMS4 25"
- And the next Starting UP there was no this message again. Why is that? And still the Servo Drives go GREEN light and Disable next second.
Can anyone answer me about this situation?
P.S. I have electrical diagram. I need Operation Manual in English if anyone have it. I have in French. I will be grateful if it send to me. email@example.com
I had a problem. PC crashed between machining and started to load from boot floppy disk. It did not affected cnc machining, except that the control was lost what the machine is doing.
At the same time when I was repairing the CPU batteries figured out what this was caused of PC power supply crashes.
The new one was more difficult to get, when the power supply connectors is original PC connectors is directly from the 1980s, and needed combine wires.
I changed the floppy drive to CNC machine to this kind of USB reader.
I managed to clone boot disk to USB stick.
PC no longer could not read it at all after that but it worked in that "Liar floppy drive" and now I can stop use 1.44 disks.
Now this Intermac Master Bevel 3500 machine has come to its end. The tool attachment mechanism inside the spindle is stuck and tool replacement is unsuccessful. The new spindle costs more than the value of that machine. If someone needs spare parts against a small fee so you can ask.
Or the whole machine as long as the transportation from Finland and the "trouble" is replaced.
The new CNC-machine is coming on May 1, 2017 so there is little time if someone needs it or some parts of it. Let me know.
