SCM Pratix issues8/28
So the other day I found that the battery on the computer was dead and also the battery on the cnc was flat. It appears that the parameters are fine, but maybe not.
Sounds like the xilog.ini file went blank. Its located,C drive~programs~Scm group~xilog plus~bin. Scrow down till you see the xilog.ini and open it. If it is blank, that is your issue. You should have a back up on the C drive.
If your cnc backup battery (CR2032) went flat, then you need to have the control reloaded. The battery on the PC went flat and now you need turn on the unit manually, then you need to go into the bios settings and set the power loss settings to turn on after a power loss. The communication issue could be a few things. Check the following:
Also, while the xilog3.ini may cause a failure for Panelmac to connect, only the newer Pratix S machines use Panelmac. So, if you use only the Sintesi handheld and transfer files using pgm2iso xilog3.ini is not your issue.
Thanks for the info, I had a service guy take a look at it and try a few things, now I get a code, I believe it is 1001 PLC in block, I an not sure if he made it worse or better? I guess I will have to call SCM next week and try get it working. I kind of fizzled out on different things to try?
Cnc in block means the Kvara is blank and needs to be reloaded. Which can be done by a certified dealer tech or a factory tech. Also the 2032 battery in the kvara needs to be replaced.
