Fault and Warning Messages

When a fault occurs a specific fault reaction is executed by the drive. Depending on the fault, the reaction can be to:

  • Controlled stop, which slows down any motion to zero velocity (see also CS.VTHRESH and CS.TO ) and disables the power stage.
  • Disable power stage, which immediately disables the power stage (also known as coast to stop).
  • Dynamic brake, which slows down the motor load by shorten the motor phases.

If the drive has a fault relay, it is immediately open when a fault occurs.

Fault & Warning Indicators at the Device

For devices with two 7-segments display

The display on the front panel shows the number of the fault that occurred. If a warning is issued prior to the fault, the warning is shown on the segment and has the same number as the associated fault.

The left 7 segment display shows “F” for a fault or “n” for a warning. The right one shows the fault or warning number as follows: “x” [break] “y” [break] “z” [break], where xyz describes the number. The highest priority fault is displayed. Multiple faults may be present when a fault condition is occurring.

For devices with one 7-segment display

The display on the front panel shows the number of the fault that occurred. If a warning is issued prior to the fault, the warning is shown on the segment and has the same number as the associated fault.

The 7 segment shows the fault or warning and the number through the following sequence: “F” or “n” [break] “x” [break] “y” [break] “z” [break], The highest priority fault is displayed. Multiple faults may be present when a fault condition is occurring.

For devices without any display, but with a LED

A multicolor LED on the device shows if a fault or warning is occurring. Faults are indicated with a red blinking. Warnings with a yellow blinking. When connected to workbench, the main screen shows the “virtual” two segment display from the device.

Fault & Warning Details with a Connected Device

With the device connected to workbench, the main screen shows a “virtual” 7-segment display, with appropriate sequence for a fault / warning code. The status bar at the button of workbench shows if a warning or fault is active. The faults and warnings screen shows the details of the actual faults as well as the fault history. In the terminal, the entire list of faults can be read by DRV.FAULTS. This command can also be used by any external controller or HMI that is connected to the device. A similar command for warnings is DRV.WARNINGS.

Clearing Faults

Most faults can be cleared without cycling power to the drive (unless they are specifically noted in the table as requiring 24 V power cycle).

Once the fault cause is remedied, you can clear the fault using any one of the following methods:

  • Click Disable and Clear Fault on the WorkBench toolbar.
  • Click the Software Enable button on the WorkBench toolbar.
  • Click the Hardware Enable button on the WorkBench toolbar.
  • Enter the DRV.CLRFAULTS command in the terminal screen.

For more detailed information on clearing drive faults, see Clearing Faults.

..  
  1. 24V Control Power input voltage dip.
  2. Auxillary encoder 5V (X9-9) shorted.

F492 Wake and Shake - Validating Comm. angle required more than MOTOR.ICONT A current larger than MOTOR.ICONT was used to excite the motor. This indicates one of the following:
  1. Phase angle is incorrect due to a bad wake and shake.
  2. Motor has very high friction requiring high current to break free.
  3. Motor power cable is disconnected or improperly wired.

F532 Drive motor parameters setup incomplete. Before a motor can be enabled, you must configure a minimum set of parameters. These parameters have not been configured. Issue the command DRV.SETUPREQLIST to display the list of the parameters that you must configure. Configure these parameters either manually or automatically. You can manually configure these parameters in three ways: (1) set each parameter individually; (2) use the setup wizard to select the motor; or (3) select the motor type from the motor data base in the Motor window (MOTOR.AUTOSET must be set to 0 (off)). If you use the Motor window, you must first select the feedback type. If the motor has Biss Analog, Endat, or SFD feedback (feedback with memory), then these parameters are set automatically when MOTOR.AUTOSET is set to 1 (on). Disable power stage
F534 Failed to read motor parameters from feedback device. Motor either does not have motor feedback memory, or the motor feedback memory is not programmed properly so the parameters cannot be read. Try to read parameters again by clicking the Disable and Clear Faults button, or by issuing the DRV.CLRFAULTS command. If this attempt is not successful, then set MOTOR.AUTOSET to 0 (off) and program the parameters using the setup wizard or manually set up the parameters. If the motor has motor memory (Biss Analog, Endat, and SFD motors have motor memory), return the motor to have the memory programmed. Dynamic braking
