Motor Drive Fault and Drive System Errors

Motor Drive Fault and Drive System Errors A Motor Drive Fault is a problem associated with

A Motor Drive Fault is a problem associated with the motor or the drive itself where as a Drive

System Error is a problem associated with the extension measurement.

Motor Drive Fault This error occurs when the fault line from motor drive unit is active, when jogging or performing a test. In all drive types the motor drive fault line is read four times to remove the effect of noise on the signal. (With DC drives the motor drive fault signal is ignored for one second, until drive reaches a steady state)

If the crosshead will not move either up or down then:

Check that the green LED (LED5) is lit on the Motor Drive PCB. If not, check the fuse and the +10V Zener diode D7 on the PCB. Check the green LED (LED3) is lit when a Jog key is pressed. If not, check the enable signal on Pin 5 of IC3B on the Motor Drive PCB. This should be +0V for Stop and +10V to drive. Check that no red LED is lit on the Motor Drive PCB. Check the PWM signal on pin 2 of the PWM Driver IC. Check the +12V supply on the PCB. Check the +26V / +60V DC Supply on the Motor Drive PCB Check the motor and armature for short circuits. Check the motor by substitution

If the motor only runs in one direction then:

Check that both limit micro switches are open on LRX Plus or closed on an LF Plus, LR5K Plus or LR10K Plus. Check that no red LED is lit on the Motor Drive PCB.

Drive System Error

This is often referred to as a “gross” error and can occur when jogging or performing a test. This

is a problem with the extension measurement and is:

Extension error = expected position – measured internal extension

When jogging a ‘gross’ error is; Extension error greater than 10% of expected position and Extension error greater than one second of movement and jogging error greater than 1mm.

When performing a test a ‘gross’ error is, Extension error greater than maximum allowed error (which is, one second of movement, with a minimum of 1mm)

Example. Speed = 1mm/sec therefore, one second of movement = 1mm After 10 seconds the Drive System Error test would be, Expected extension = 10mm Measured extension = 9.1mm (for example) Extension error 10 - 9.1 = 0.9mm Less than 1mm Therefore not a Drive System Error.

But if Expected extension = 10mm Measured extension = 8.9mm Extension error 10 - 8.9 = 1.1mm This is greater than 1mm Therefore Drive System Error.

Check the +5V supply on pin 1 of the encoder plug. Also check the two quadrature encoder pulses on Pins 3 and 4 of the encoder plug. If not present check the encoder by substitution. Check the encoder pulses on pins 8 and 9 of IC1 on the MT Control PCB.

If when the jog keys are pressed the crosshead does not actually move (i.e. the motor does not move and the fault line from the motor drive unit does not become active) then there will be no change in the extension values. The extension values would therefore not be correct and the error message will still be “Drive System error” even though it could be a problem associated with the motor drive itself.

If the power supplies and encoder have been checked as previously stated then the problem might be with the motor drive circuit, the motor or motor power supplies, which should all be checked for as per the Motor Drive Fault problem.
