    Default Harrison alpha 550 program error

    First time we tried sending a small program to the lathe and we got "Program Error" on the lathe.
    Searched and read that it might have something to do with the file name being too long ( More then 8 characters )
    it will still work manually, but can't run ( I think they are called conversational ) programs from the console...
    really need that feature back ASAP, if nothing else... I also read we need to to clear program memory...
    I have not yet located a button that says that...LOL I'm sure its harder than that though.

    anyone know what to do ? Please help !

    Hi either the file is too big ,there is problem with the communications settings or you've loaded the wrong type of file
    There is a procedure to clear
    Send me your email and I'll send you it

    if its a fanuc zero, verify parameter 2, 12, 550, and the setting page)tvcheck/eia/iso,,, share on here, maybe someone can shed some light on it/ also, doublecheck on your program- sometimes when saved there will be ascii jibberish at the head of the file- manually delete and retry

    What software are you using to create the file to send to the machine ? Common fault as people assume they can use any software to create the file. When you power on there will be a number on the bottom right hand side if you post this we can tell you what version of alphalink is correct for your machine

    Problem Solved !!!

    The lathe is expecting Imperial and I wrote the programs in Metric...
    Who would have guessed.

    Many thanks to:

    Adam Marshall
    Superdraft Systems Ltd

    for the suggestion !

    Now to start the lathe up in metric.. Anyone know how to do that ?

    Thanks !

    Use the dip switches on the main A3 board to locate the offsets page its the orange one on the display press settings
    Cursor down to selection press in the E Stop and change to metric
