Emerson Industrial Automation: Unidrive SP Troubleshooting

Emerson Industrial Automation: Unidrive SP Troubleshooting

DIGITAL INPUTS

The Unidrive SP can be enabled to run in several ways. The drive can use digital inputs, keypad, or a field buss networks to give the OK to run. The drive will display inh, rdy, or run depending on the given commands. The drive can be programmed to use positive or negative logic. The logic type is set up at #8.29 in the Unidrive SP. The Unidrive SP defaults to positive logic. When the drive is in positive logic you will need to inject +24VDC to activate the digital inputs. The +24VDC can be supplied by the drive or externally.

The Unidrive SP can be enabled to run in numerous ways.

When the drive is in the terminal mode the following sequence occurs under default conditions:

Unidrive SP:

Inh = Drive disabled = Connect pins 22-31 drive should go to rdy
Rdy = Drive enabled = Connect pins 22-26 drive should go to run
Run = Drive is enabled and ready to run when a speed reference is applied

Parameter #0.05 sets up the Reference Select. This will tell the drive where to search for run commands and speed references. You will only need to close the enable signal if it is set to pad. Then, the keypad can be used to control the drive and to set the speed reference. The speed reference will come in on an analog input if you choose a terminal code. The digital inputs will select the enable, run, and preset selections. The drive should operate as seen above if the digital inputs are activated correctly.

DRIVE SEQUENCER

When the drive is not running, there are several additional parameters in menu 6 that can assess the issue. The digital inputs may be configured wrong or inactive if the parameters are not going to a 1 with the corresponding commands. Check the following parameters:

#6.15 = 1 = Drive enabled

#6.43 = 1 = Control word disabled, Set to 1 for Field Buss Control

#6.29 = 1 = Hardware Enable (Pin 31 is activated)

#6.30 = 1 = Run Forward #6.31 = 1 = Jog

#6.32 = 1 = Run Reverse

#6.33 = 1 = Forward/Reverse

#6.34 = 1 = Run

#6.37 = 1 = Jog Reverse

#6.39 = 1 = Not Stop

 

Unidrive SP

The voltage on the corresponding digital inputs should be measured if the parameters in menu 6 aren’t changing state accordingly. The DC voltage should change between 0VDC and 24VDC when a command is given. Check the digital input configuration in menu 8 if menu 6 isn’t changing and the voltage is.

CONTROL WORD

To control the start/stop functions, the drive does not have to use the digital inputs. When #6.43 = 1 the control word is enabled. The drive will now accept a decimal value from 0 to 32767 at #6.42. This decimal value can be converted to a binary value.To see the function that will be carried out, you can reference the binary value to the chart below.

Unidrive SP

Speed Reference

The drive still may not run if the digital inputs and the drive sequencer are each working properly. There could be an issue with the speed reference to the drive if the display shows Run but the motor isn’t turning. The speed reference is able to be applied in several methods. An analog input can be used (current or voltage), preset speeds, and a field buss reference. The example is a 0-10VDC signal on analog input #1.

The final speed of the demand is parameter #3.01. The speed reference should be displayed here if the digital inputs and the drive sequencer are failing to operate properly. Check menu 1 and 2 to determine where it is stopping if the reference is not getting to this point.

If the drive is running in torque mode, the torque reference will come on parameter #4.08 under default conditions. #4.08 is able to be linked to an analog input or be written to via a filed buss network.

 

Unidrive SP

 

#7.01 should be inspected to determine if it changes with the change in reference at terminal 5 once the signal has been confirmed. #7.01 goes from +/- 0% – 100%. Check the destination of the speed reference at #7.10 if everything looks good. Follow it to the destination and confirm the speed reference value is arriving there and then through #3.01.

 

Unidrive SP

 

Contact the America’s Service Center if the drive will still not run after the Speed Reference, Digital Inputs and Drive Sequencer have all been confirmed.

HF Faults are not recorded in the Drive Historical Fault Log

All of the above HF trips in BLUE are typically a result of some sort of hardware failure on the UD90A control PCB. This control board is common to all Unidrive Classics.

For the HF codes in RED refer to the following page

HF82 Large option module missing

If one of the UD7x large option modules is removed, the trip may be expected. There is an issue with either the large option module or the UD90A control PCB if this trip occurs at any other time than the case above.

HF83 Power Board Code Failure

Because the UD90A control PCB was unable to recognize the power rating of the power PCB it is connected to, this trip occurred.

The trip is likely due to the power PCB in the Drive or a problem with the UD90A control PCB on Unidrive Sizes 1 to 4 (which includes UNI1401, UNI1402, UNI1403, UNI1404, UNI1405, UNI2401, UNI2402, UNI2403, UNI3401, UNI3402, UNI3403, UNI3404, UINI3405, UNI4401, UNI4402, UNI4403, and UNI4404).

UD99 PCB or the UD90A PCB cause the trip on a Unidrive Size 5. The interconnects between the PCBs should also be checked, as they could also cause a trip.

HF84 Current Offset Trim Failure

Due to an issue with the current feedback on the drive, this trip occurs. The trip is likely due to the power PCB in the Drive on Unidrive Sizes 1 to 4. An issue with the UD90A control PCB may also cause this trip.

The UD99 PCB or the UD90A PCB cause the trip on a Unidrive Size 5, along with the interconnects between the PCBs.

HF88 Watchdog Failure

This trip can result from a faulty UD7x Co-Processor. With power off, remove Co-Processor and re-apply power.

HF82 Large option module missing

If one of the UD7x larger option modules is removed while the Drive is powered up, this trip is likely to occur. There is an issue with either the UD90A control PCB or the large option module if this trip were to occur at any other time.

HF83 Power Board Code Failure

The UD90A control PCB was unable to recognize the power rating of the power PCB it is connected to, which is what caused the trip.

The trip is likely due to the power PCB in the Drive on Unidrive Sizes 1 to 4, however, an issue with the UD90A control PCB is also able to cause this trip.

The trip is caused by the UD90A PCB, the UD99 PCB, or the interconnects between the PCBs on a Unidrive Size 5.

 

HF84 Current Offset Trim Failure

If there is an issue with the current feedback on the Drive, this trip will occur. The trip is likely due to the power PCB in the Drive, but an issue with the UD90A control PCB could also result in a trip on Unidrive Sizes 1 to 4.

On a Unidrive Size 5, the trip is cause by either UD99 PCB or the UD90A PCB. The interconnects between the PCBs could also cause this trip and should be checked.

A trip could be caused by either UD99 PCB, UD90A PCB, or the interconnects between the PCBs on a Unidrive Size 5.

HF88 Watchdog Failure

A faulty UD7x Co-Processor and large option module, ( includes UD70, UD71, UD73, UD74, UD75, and UD76) can cause this trip. Remove Co-Processor and re-apply power with power off.

A16B-1212-0100 Wiring Diagram

The A16B-1212-0100 is an easy to mount CNC power supply that is designed to connect directly to the System 0 master PCB. All its AC inputs and DC outputs are linked via connectors. Because the power supply unit has a built-in input unit function, it is not necessary to prepare a a separate relay or input unit for switching the AC input on and off. The AC input can be connected directly to the power supply unit. The unit has an AC service outlet, which is switched on and off simultaneously with the power supply unit. This AC service outlet can be used to supply power to a unit such as a fan motor. Sometimes the alternate FANUC part number P007P0355 is used.

Descriptions of the A16B-1212-0100 I/O Signals and Display LEDs
  1. AC power supply display LED (green) – When an AC power source is connected to the power supply unit, the LED lights regardless of whether the unit is on or off.
  2. Alarm display LED (red) – If the power supply unit is switched off because of an alarm condition due to a failure such as an output error, the alarm display LED lights and remains on until the alarm condition is cleared by pressing the OFF switch or shutting down the AC power supply.
  3. ENABLE signal EN (output) – This TTL level signal indicates that all DC outputs are normal. It becomes low if an output failure is detected in any circuit.
  4. Power supply on/off control signal ON–OFF–COM (input) – If two switches are connected to this circuit as shown below, pressing the ON switch turns on the power supply unit, while pressing the OFF switch turns the unit off. If an alarm occurs in the power supply unit, and the alarm display LED lights in red, however, pressing the ON switch will not turn on the power supply unit. In this case, it is necessary to remove the cause of the alarm and press the OFF switch. Pressing the OFF switch clears the alarm condition. Subsequently pressing the ON switch turns on the power supply
    unit.
  5. External alarm signal AL (input) – When a contact signal from another unit or external power supply becomes ”closed,” the ENABLE signal of this power supply unit becomes low, thus immediately turning off the power supply unit.
  6. Alarm signal FA–FB (output) –  This contact signal indicates the state of all DC outputs. The contact is open when all the DC outputs are normal. It is closed if an output failure is detected in any DC output circuit. If an external alarm signal (item 5) is connected, the FA–FB contact opens, when all DC outputs are normal and the external alarm signal is ”open.” The contact closes when the external alarm signal becomes ”closed.”
Adjustments and Settings

The FANUC A16B-1212-0100 power supply unit requires no adjustment or setting. Do not attempt to adjust the reference voltage (=10.00V) at A10 unless absolutely necessary, because the reference voltage has been adjusted during unit test; merely confirm the voltage across A10 and A0 of check connector CP16. If the reference voltage at A10 falls outside the rated range, set it to 10.00V, using VR11, while measuring the voltage with a digital voltmeter. Rotating VR11 clockwise increases the voltage at A10. After the power supply unit is replaced, always to check the reference voltage at A10.

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.

Please contact us at 800-691-8511 or at sales@mroelectric.com.

Siemens Micromaster 420 Faults and Alarms

A blog we posted earlier this week about the Micromaster 420 troubleshooting referenced the Faults and Alarms list for the Micromaster series, so we decided that it would make sense to make the list of Micromaster 420 Faults and Alarms directly available. This is from the corresponding manual for the Micromaster 420 series, but it is buried within the manual which most people most likely don’t even have. Hopefully this helps with your troubleshooting.

Siemens 6AV2124-0GC01-0AX0: Beyond the User Manual

The Siemens 6AV2124-0GC01-0AX0 is a TP700 Comfort Panel with a 7 inch widescreen TFT display. It has 12MB of user memory, Windows CE 6.0, as well as Profinet and MPI/Profibus DP interfaces. The panel uses a 24V DC supply input, with a permissible range from 19.2 V to 28.8 V.  It’s input current has a consumption of 0.5 A.

When connecting the power supply, be sure to switch it off before connecting to the HMI. Check the correct polarity of the cables using the interface marking on the back of the panel. Once the power supply connector is in the corresponding socket of the HMI, switch on the power. The HMI is equipped with a reverse polarity protection circuit. Once the power is turned on, the 6AV2124-0GC01-0AX0 display will light up. If the panel fails to start, you may have crossed the cables at the power supply connector. Once the operating system starts, the desktop with the Start Center is displayed. The panel will automatically switch to “Transfer” mode during the initial startup if either no project is loaded on the HMI device, or if at least one data channel has been configured.

The backlight on the 6AV2124-0GC01-0AX0 is good for roughly 80,000 hours. If your panel has been in use for longer and you are experiencing issues, you may want to consider contacting MRO Electric to order a replacement.

A06B-6105-H002 – FANUC Robotics R-2000iA Servo Amplifier

The FANUC A06B-6105-H002 is a servo amplifier used with the FANUC Robot Module R-2000iA. Usually these amplifiers are factory set for operation, so you do not need to set or adjust them. However, if you need to configure or troubleshoot your A06B-6105-H002, please follow the instructions below. Take not that before touching your servo amplifier, you should always check the voltage at the screw above LED “D7” to ensure that the remaining voltage is not higher than 50V.

The following table highlights the various LEDs on the A06B-6105-H002 and their meanings.

LED Color Description
P5V Green Lights when the power supply circuit inside of the servo amplifier outputs a voltage of +5V normally.
P3.3V Green Lights when the power supply circuit inside of the servo amplifier outputs a voltage of +3.3V normally.
SVEMG Red Lights when an emergency stop signal is input to the servo amplifier.
ALM Red Lights when the servo amplifier detects an alarm.
RDY Green Lights when the servo amplifier is ready to drive the servo motor.
OPEN Green Lights when the communication between the servo amplifier and the main board is normal.
WD Red Lights when the watchdog alarm is detected in the servo amplifier.
D7 Red Lights when the DCLINK circuit inside the servo amplifier is charged to reach a specific voltage.

If you need to replace the A06B-6105-H002 amplifier on your R-2000iA, ensure that you begin by first turning off the control unit main power. Next detach the amplifier cover and pull out the cable. Check the screw above LED D7 with a DC voltage tester to make sure the remaining voltage is not above 50V. Remove the two screws located on the top of the amplifier. At the middle top of the drive, there is an M5 screw that fastens the amplifier during the transport of the cabinet. After installation of the cabinet, remove the screw as this will help improve maintainability.  After these steps are complete, you can pull the amplifier toward you using the handles located at the top and bottom. Be careful not to touch any components on the lower part of the drive’s PCB, and try not to damage any cables routed under the amp when pulling it out. Use a slanted angle when pulling it out.

You can easily install a replacement by reversing the steps above.
