Just turning on a Biesse Arrow for the 1st time and I'm getting confusing errors.
The errors are
1 - Machine not turned on - this doesn't make sense unless it is subservient to other errors.
Error 2 - Machine not homed - easy enough, but with the machine not turned on can't be rectified.
Error 10 - E stop pressed or safety door open. This is the one that is bothering me. All E-stops (3 - 1 on the control and 2 on the tables) are released and all safety door switches (3) are locked closed.
Any ideas? I am assuming that once I get error 10 sorted, the rest will fall into place.
Not sure if this matters, but the main power switch in the control panel was replaced and the tech removed some "un needed" wires that were hooked up to it. He said they were on for protection but it occurs to me that since the machines doesn't think it's turned on (error 1) maybe there was more to them.
recently I had a used one set up and I was unfamiliar with the biesse. errors al over
had a phase leg reversed
It can be an air pressure switch, vacuum switch. Jim McGrew had the problem of his vacuum pump running backwards. This in turn didn't activate the vacuum switch and it was causing a E-Stop error. Switched the phases and it fixed the problem.
It is hard to say on the extra wires that were removed. They may have been tied in to turn another machine on when the Biesse was turned on. Some companies do this.
The E-Stop circuit needs to be checked as one of the switches tied in, Push Buttons, safety gates/mats, vacuum switch, air pressure switch, etc. is not sending signal through. The wiring needs to be checked along the circuit to see what is missing.
First thing I did this morning was check the rotation of the vacuum pump. It's going the right way. Sounds bad though - although I don't know what a Becker should sound like.
I suspect that it's the safety circuit but haven't had time to work it all through. I'm hoping that when the estop error goes away, the rest of the power will come up and I'll be able to home the axis.
The tech (not a Biesse guy - sent in by the seller) said that the wires were part of a circuit that protected the main power switch.
