PLC383 PLC cycle greater than nominal period (1)2/1
I am running a Biesse Rover 346 Pallet, with NC410 and XNC, born in 1999.
Is that the only error you are getting? May have to scroll inside the error windows to record them all. Do the PLC keypad keys ( the ones that allow you to control the stops, manually shuttle the pallets in and out, etc) all light up and remain lit? Do your panel supports have the LED readouts on the end for positioning the panel supports and pods? Are all visible or are any blank or just show horizontal lines? This could be one of several issues most often related to the PLC.
Thanks for your reply, Mark. No, there are other messages, but only those that normally show up when booting the machine up from zero (Homing must be performed, Drive KO, etc.) Actually, as it turns out, the PLC error may not be the source of the problem, since it has been showing up a lot lately, but at least once, the machine has started up even though the PLC error was displayed.
The PLC keypad keys do light up, all of them, for the normal amount of time, and then they settle down to show only the selected options. The LED lights on the panel supports are all normal, showing the numbers, and no horizontal lines.
I have been rebooting and starting up many times now, and between the shutdowns I tried to flip all the breakers and rotary switches, to see if there is an electrical connection that has dust on the contacts or something, and at least twice, this has worked, and gotten me up and running for a few days. Now, we are back to square one again, and no amount of reboots and breaker flipping is working.
Any Luck fixing this problem?
I had the same error on our 346 pallet.
I remember that there was an error because the fan on top of the motor was broken en therefore overheating the spindle.
Well, the machine has started working again, after we had a technician come in and fiddle around with things in the back. We have decided that it's time to retire the old beast, and have now sprung for a brand new Anderson CNC. Anybody want to buy a slightly used, works-like-a-charm, Biesse Rover 346 Pallett?
