  • Serial jogbox did not respond in time

    We have a machine, excel 9-15-9 with 3.5mr2, that has been getting this error about 6 times in the past two weeks. We will hit continue and it will start to run, but them lock up to the point where the machine needs to be shut down and restarted to get it to run again. Any suggestions on what might be causing this error? These are on programs that have been ran many times before.

    If memory serves, the last time I encountered this it was the probe head. PH-9A I beleive. Do you have an indexing head on this machine?

      We have a PH10M on that machine. Will it continue to get worse or is it just something that happens every now and then.

        I haven't used PC DMIS or even been on a cmm for over a year now, but from what i remember, the error message stated usually points to the problem. it isn't usually specific, but usually will get you headed in the right direction.

        Before you start blaming an expensive probe head, try checking out all of the components in the jogbox. Maybe a crimped wire somewhere. I had some similar problems once with the XCEL i was running. Turned out the wiring inside the insulation about an inch before the jogbox was the culprit.

        I hope everyone is well.

          Thanks Ken,

          The folks that run this machine seem to have big feet as this box ( and others ) have been dragged onto the flloor. The wire is often time lying directly under there feet, well under the front of the table, which is where they stand, so they are either getting there feet tangled in the wire and pulling the jogbox on the floor or they are standing on the wire. I'm going to continue to monitor there errors and see if this continues and will wait a little and go from there.

            Vondy,
            I used to have a 7-10-7. I had a problem like that. It would happen when It was in rapid. Come to find out, the "x" axis belt needed adjusted. Try checking that, if nothin else works

              How did you adjust it, by tightening it or was it off center or something?

                Vondy,
                I tightened it. I dont kknwo about your machine, but I took the upper back cover off and, the axis that it was doing that in, I losed the stop screw and adjusted the tension. Not too tight though. The 7-10-07 said to be able to measure approx. .5 in slack. You should either sheck the manual on your machine or call B and S. They will give you the location and amount of slack for your particular machine. I hope this fixes it for you!
