1. Fanuc Robot Alarm Codes

Best regards Ivan • author Hello Ivan, Thanks for your comment today. The letter P is a communication error between amplifier and module. Check all of your connections, cable for CXA2A to CXA2B can be faulty. I hope you can resolve this issue.

Sep 24, 2007  I have a Miyano BNE-51SY with a Fanuc 18i-T control. And I'm getting a reoccurring alarm 436 soft thermal (OVC). I've checked the amps and all have 0's or -'s so the alarm must be on the servo motor itself. I think it's the turret index motor (A axis) but it typically occurs during a boring cycle. Can anybody suggest what I should do. I have a Miyano BNE-51SY with a Fanuc 18i-T control. And I'm getting a reoccurring alarm 436 soft thermal (OVC).

This may sound funny but many times people don’t engage the breaker switch on the top of the drive. Other cases point to a bad cable from the motor to the drive. Regards, Jade York • Joe Good morning.

I have a fanuc turret spindle drive with a #12 alarm that will not clear with pwr. Down and back up. I hope that you can tell me about the alarm. • author Hi Pete, Thanks for your question. #12 alarm code is most likely an IGBT has a short.

In day time it not shows any alarm. Is this is drive control PCB related alarm and control card need to repair. Please advise via mail id. • author Hello Jagdeep, #2 alarm means the drive is not getting low control voltage. When alarm occurs, check for 24vdc at CX2A. If good then drive has components out of spec causing the alarm. The drive will have to be evaluated.

Even the servo amp could cause this. Not sure what you mean by 'relaxes' but it sounds like a bad brake. Upping the load and stretching out the accel time as Racermike said would be where I would start if all mechanical/electrical is good.

This enables us to complete all repairs in a quick turnaround time. We stock an extensive collection of refurbished amplifiers, power supplies and motors. These are ready for immediate dispatch.

AL-24 is a communication error to Spindle connector JA7B. If there is a new or known good cable in place then swapping out spindle amplifiers would be the next step. (If spare is available.) Some aged or out of spec components in the Spindle amplifier can cause alarms. The Amplifier can be sent in for an evaluation. Our website,, is the portal to our nationwide repair services. We would be happy to help with an evaluation of your Fanuc amplifier, if necessary.

Alarm Code #2 Control power supply undervoltage alarm (LV5V). Alarm occurs if control circuit power supply voltage (+5V) is abnormally low (LV5V level: 4.6VDC). Alarm Code #5 Excessive regenerative discharge alarm (DCOH). Alarm occurs when average regenerative discharge energy is too high. *Causes may include operation of thermostat for regenerative discharge resistor or thermostat between (15) and (16) on terminal block T1; this operation results from too frequent acceleration/deceleration operations.

When, many times our technicians see the same fault codes come up. Here is a list of the most common Alarm codes found on the status display on C-Series, Fanuc servo amplifiers: Alarm Code #1 Overvoltage alarm (HV). If DC voltage of main power supply is abnormally high, overvoltage alarms occurs (HV level: 430V DC). Alarm occurs when regenerative discharge resistor is disconnected. For 200V AC input, main circuit voltage is 283V DC (200 x 1.414).

Testing is performed on a closed loop to determine the source of the problem and what must be done to get it fixed. We offer an ever-growing exchange stock to expedite the process and get your CNC machinery back up and running ASAP.

A service tech told me how to find the page in the control that shows the servo loads. So I just sat and watched A-axis until it alarmed out again. On this particular Miyano I have live tooling and the tools are driven by a helical bevel gear inside the turret. When the turret lifts to index the helical gear uncouples from the A-axis motor. During non-live tool operations the A-axis servo loading ran about 5%.

• To go to ALARM HISTORY, select HISTORY on the top line menu. • Scroll through the Alarms here using the arrows – highlight the Error/Fault you want to learn more about. • Press the SHIFT and DIAG HELP button together you will go to a troubleshooting area where there are alarm descriptions and remedies. For this fault it reads.

Here are a couple of possibilities. The M or (Y) axis IGBT is weak or amplifier components are failing under the high temperature. The Fan must be functioning efficiently without too much contamination. The amplifier may be due for reconditioning. Sending your amplifier in to a reliable, cost-effective source like Repair Zone can get things running smoothly again. Here is a link to get you started with a free evaluation: I hope this helps!

Author: • 37 Comments • Nimer I wont to know the servo alarm un the machine • safwat Thank you My machine write code 8 and l reed what this mean but I dont know what I do Please help me what I do • author Hi Safwat, Thank you for your question. Alarm code 8 is a L-axis over-current alarm(HCL). This alarm occurs if an abnormally high current flows in the L-axis motor. If you meg the motor and the cable and they are good, then it is probably out of spec components on your drive and it will have to be repaired.

The #8 fault is abnormally high current flows in the L-axis motor, a very common fault. As long as the cables and motor tests good, you can isolate the 8 fault to having a blown IGBT or other bad components on the A06B-6079-H106 Fanuc amplifier.

I thought I'd clarify a bit the aspects of this problem. We have a wall mounted Fanuc Arcmate 100iB, RJ2 controller. The problem hasn't appeared during testing, only when we went to programming and robot was held by servos for extended periods of time we started to get SRVO 46 OVC alarm on angles of J1 between parallel to the ground and about 30 degrees.

Regards, Jade York • George Hi We have a Fanuc power mate H and there a LED indication S1,S0,WD and EN. The S1 LED is red now.

What that indication means. Could you please help us. • author Hello George, Thanks for your question. From where I am standing, most likely it is a connection/communication issue. Free turbo grafx 16 roms. Check (JS1A to JS1) and (JX1B jumper or connection to next drive). I hope this works for you.

THE ISSUE I HAVE NOW: If the robot is told to stop once after it has filled the ladle-(from bad machine signal) The 7th axis completely relaxes and then causes OVC alarms! How do i get rid of the OVC alarms on a ladle full of aluminum? Also moving the robot in manual, if ladle is full and the dead man is released an OVC will occur. Some how 2nd shift always finds a way to fault the robot and cause OVC when it is nowhere near a collision. Yea Im sure it has always run at these settings cause the fella who set it up 6 years ago hasn't been back since,,,,, the ovc alarm started occurring after adding a application that calls for heavier load to the 7th axis. Increasing the gear ratio is done on controlled start?

Any other ways to solve this issue? Disregard my original post!! The fact that this robot is wall mounted is significant.

Cycle power and retest for the OVC alarm. Check to make sure you have 'brake on hold' enabled. It is under the setup menu Menu, 6, F1 type, general. Then cycle the power off and then back on for the change to take effect. There is a setting to change the wait time for the brakes to come on.

Regards, Jade York • Jagdeep Ohlan My machine servo amplifier A06B-6079-H204 A and shows alarm 2 in status in morning when machine starts after 3 hrs. Off due to shift change.

The smaller fan located inside the yellow case is the fan that must be changed. If that was changed and there is still a fault, then there could be components out of spec, trace damage, or other issues. If you need further assistance, you can send your unit in to Repair Zone for a free evaluation. Repair Slip: Best Regards, Jade York Repair Zone • Pete Schneider Hi. No comment but a hopeful question.

448 Feedback mismatch alarm. 449 Inverter: IPM alarm. 453 Soft disconnection alarm (a pulse coder).

I was going to try to increase the allowed amp to for that axis to see if that would effect the over currents.but that axis disturbance torque cannot be adjusted, J7 it is (****) with the alarm message Collision Detect Disabled. Would Setting payload even affect the rotation of this axis? J7 it is in SubGroup 1 and not a separate group 2. When was the last time the 7th axis grease/oil changed? Since it's subject to heat, it could be now be a stinky, black, watery substance that has little value as a lubricant. Check for metal content in the grease/oil, you may have a bearing going bad. Motor could also be the fault if it weak or has a dragging brake.
