Automation Cleanup Procedures for Flood Damages in TX & LA

Automation Cleanup Procedures for Flood Damages in TX & LA

MRO Electric is determined to provide the best service and support to businesses affected by Hurricane Harvey during these difficult times as they resume operation and employees get back to work.

Water-immersed electronic devices and motors in automation systems need appropriate treatment after flood water subsides. We have compiled information we learned from our past flood relief activities below, which we think our customers affected by Harvey may find useful.

We also have the capability to wash and test the amplifiers and printed circuit boards at our repair facilities.

Recovering Industrial Electronics from Flood Damage

If the CNC and related equipment are treated properly after being soaked with flood water, it is possible to reduce or even recover from the damage. The purpose of this section is to describe proper post-flood treatment.

Things to keep in mind:

  • In case of flood, do not open cabinets and units. It is better to wait until the flood water recedes.
  • If it is possible to drain actively, the early drainage can reduce the damage.

Outline of the procedure after flood water recedes is as follows:

  1. Remove batteries & cables
  2. Wash the units
  3. Dry the units
  4. Check the insulation resistance
  5. Check the functionality (Performed by MRO Electric’s engineers)

Remove batteries & cables

In order to minimize a damage to unit, please perform following at first:

  1. Please remove battery cables from units and PCBs (Printed Circuit Board) as soon as possible. Flooded batteries may cause rust damage to PCB’s circuitry and could result in irreparable PCB damage. Removing the batteries will result in loss of CNC data, but it is necessary to protect the hardware from further damage.
  2. Remove cables before washing. Please properly tag or mark so you will be able to connect cables back correctly.

Washing the Units

Wash the units according to the procedure below as soon as possible. Damage will worsen if washing is delayed.

  1. Unit –  Floodwater often contains contaminates such as dirt and oil. This could stick to the unit and could become difficult to remove. Use a neutral detergent, such as multipurpose kitchen detergent, tap water, and nylon brush (do not use a metal brush) to clean them as much as possible. Use a small brush such as a toothbrush and clean the entire unit with specific attention to connectors and sockets.
  2. Relays –  If relays have water inside, please open the case and clean inside. (If the case cannot be opened, you will need to replace it.)
  3. Transformers –  It is not possible to clean inside a transformer coil, however, please clean the unit as much as possible especially around the electrical terminals.
  4. Cables –  Connector housings will contain flood water. Please disassemble the connectors to drain any water, clean them, and then dry by hanging the cable with the connector at the bottom. (It is also possible that flood water also enters between cable strands). Please be mindful of this.
  5. Servo and Spindle Motors – These motors cannot be disassembled by the customer.
    Please have MRO Electric’s engineers clean these parts. If you see waters entering inside the cover on the motor, the cover may be removed to release the water and carefully clean around the feedback assembly.
  6. Motor Drive Units – Please use flowing water to clean the motor drive units. Please refrain from submerging the unit during cleaning.

Drying Units

After washing, please remove as much water as possible and let then dry. The electrical resistance is lower due to the moisture, so please do not attempt to mount or apply electrical power until the unit is completely dry. It will take a long time if you just leave the unit at room temperature. Transformers, especially, will require a few months if not dried to high temperature. It is necessary to use a high heat to evaporate the humidity inside the transformer.

Drying Oven
It is possible to gain enough insulation back in a few hours if you can use a drying oven with enough high heat. However, please be careful if the temperature is too high, it may melt the insulation material. A vacuum type drying oven may be useful for this type of equipment.

Here are a few examples of temperature and drying time for FANUC products, after removing as much water as possible by hand:
· Servo Transformer – In 120 degree C (248 degrees F) for 8 hours
· Servo Motors – In 80 degree C (176 degrees F) for 12 hours (with Pulse coder removed)
· PCB (Printed Circuit Boards) – In 60 degree C (140 degrees F) for 1 hour.

Without a Drying Oven
Please prepare a fanned heater. It is a good idea to use a hair dryer to send heated air (around 140 degrees F is desirable). Please be careful as it may become too hot if you send the air directly to the unit. PCB and units may be dried in a half, to one full day, but the transformer may take a few days.

Check the Insulation Resistance

It is very important that insulation resistance is tested before applying power.

  1. Transformer – Measure the insulation resistance using 500V Megameter between coils, and between coil and metals such as core. The measurement should be 10 Megohm or more.
  2. Servo Motors and Spindle Motors – Measure the insulation resistance between the motor windings and ground. The measurement should be 10 Megohm or more. Please note that the encoders may be damaged by the flood water. Please open the motor case and check. If you see the sign of entering the water, the encoders may need to be replaced.

Check the Functionality

MRO Electric engineers and machine tool builder engineers may need to work in sync because machine side repair and adjustment will also be required. If the insulation resistance is adequate, then the unit may be installed. Confirm all cable connections and wiring, then apply power and confirm the operation. If insulation is not sufficiently recovered due to insufficient drying, there is a possibility of ignition due to short circuit or heat generation, so pay attention to the generation of smell and smoke for a while after energization, immediately turn off the power when there is an abnormality.

If parameters were lost and a recent back up is not readily available, it is our recommendation to contact the machine tool builder to assist you. They will also be able to assist in any machine side adjustments and/or set up procedures before the final operation is started.

Our goal is to quickly and safely return your machine back into production. Do not hesitate to contact MRO Electric if you believe your equipment is damaged and is in need of testing and/or repair, or if you require a replacement part.

Siemens 6SN1145-1BA01-0DA1: Beyond the User Manual

So what is the 6SN1145-1BA01-0DA1?

The Siemens 6SN1145-1BA01-0DA1 is a Simodrive Infeed/Regenerative Feedback Module with Closed-Loop control. This module is used to connect the drive group to the line supply. Specifically, it is used to input power into the DC link. It also provides the electronics power supply for the connected modules. The 6SN1145-1BA01-0DA1 does not have an comprehensive overload protection. This protection must be provided by the configuration and the correct setting of current values on the control boards.

The 6SN1145-1BA01-0DA1 forms the step-up converter for controlling the DC link voltage and allowing a regenerative feedback. This module can be used for a variety of applications, including the following:

  • Machines with high dynamic requirements placed on the drive.
  • Frequency braking cycles and high braking energy.
  • Control cabinet designs optimized for low operating costs.

This I/R module, the UI and monitoring module are located as the first module to the left of the drive group. The mounting surface of the infeed module and drive modules as well as the commutating reactors and line filter should be mounted to the mounting panels through a low resistance connector like  galvanized plates or panels.

The 6SN1145-1BA01-0DA1 has a total of 6 LEDs for local signaling as show below:

 6SN1145-1BA01-0DA1 Fault Codes
Here is what each LED indicates:

  • 1 LED red – Electronics power supply ± 15V faulted
  • 2 LED red – 5V voltage level faulted
  • 3 LED green – External enable signals not present (terminal 63 and/or terminal 64 missing)
  • 4 LED yellow – DC link charged (normal operation)
  • 5 LED red – Line supply fault
    • Commutating reactor not available, incorrectly installed or incorrectly selected.
    • System fault level of the line supply or transformer too low.
  • 6 LED red – DC link overvoltage
    • Possible Causes
      • Regnerative feedback off
      • Setting up operation
      • Line fault
      • PW either not operational or too small
      • Line supply voltage too high
      • Dynamic overload
      • Line filter inserted between I/R and the commutating reactor.
