everyonce and a while, the controls for my mazak go dead... in this case, did tool change, was using the hand wheel for about 5 min, turned it off and went to use it again and nothing, machine doesnt move at all, not in rapid, home, jog, handwheel, MDI, Auto... nothing.
Looking at the Mitsubishi PLC servo drives, these are the sequence of what I assume are error codes, below are what I see on the LED screen when the machine is running normally...
far left drive - MDS-C1-V1-10 - F4/E7/F4/E7/OFF/REPEAT/etc.
Runs with C1 in LED screen
middle drive - MDSC1V2-3520S - F1/E7/F2/E7/OFF/REPEAT/etc.
Runs with d1/d2 in LED screen
right drive - MDS-C1-V1-45S - F3/E7/F3/E7/OFF/REPEAT/etc.
runs with d3 in LED screen
spindle drive - MDS-CA-SP-300 - F5/E7/F5/E7/OFF/REPEAT/etc.
Runs with C5 in LED screen
Any insight as to what my machine is "doing" or what i may be doing to cause my drives to stop working and show error codes, would be much appreciated..
could it be the batteries?
It does it every now and then, boss claiming it never happened to him when he was running the machine, so im not sure what exactly is going on...
The only way to clear it is to shut the machine off, home it, and resume working, but as far as im concerned i shouldn't have to...
Also if its anything, it also has 4th axis..
