  • Emergency Stop

    Good afternoon,
    A lower lifeform came into the CMM room and pushed the E-Stop button. Now when I try to start it up, I keep recieving an error "Emergency Error".
    We tried to restart the pc and the cmm multiple times and we still recieve the error. Any thoughts? By the way, yes the E-stop button has been released

    Did you press the "Machine Start" button? I have a "One" and that seems to fix just about any error.

      Yes, we pushed the machine start button, the light comes on and then as soon as the button is let go, the light goes out.

        I am guessing that you have pushed the e-stop, powered EVERYTHING down, waited at least 3 minutes and then tried to start up again. That should always be one of your first troubleshooting tasks. Leaving power off for at least 3 minutes gives all circuits a chance to reset. If you have done that and you still have the problem, I would suspect they actual switch of your e-stop has failed. It just co-incidentally happened when the intelligent came along. This happened to me about a year ago. Your maintenance people should be able to install a new one. HTH

          We had multiple errors when our X axis encoder went, but this is exactly what it started out as--the machine start button wouldn't stay on, and thus we couldn't get the machine to realize that the e-stop button was disengaged.
          maybe this isn't even close to what's wrong, but our issue did start out this way.
          Are there, or were there any other issues, errors, or anthing else that happened when this started?

            OK, that was a bit weird. We stopped to talk to someone, and when we hit the machine start button, again, the light stayed on. Don't know what happenned..

            Thanks y'all

              That sounds to me like your e-stop may be shorting out inside the jogbox. You might want to have it looked at before it fails you again.

              That is my $.02; you were overcharged; refunds are against policy; we appologize for any inconvienence caused by our greed and arrogance!

                NO no, it is like the warranty says nowadays. "Please do not retun this product to your merchant. We want the pelasure of messing with you ourselves and still not give the refund you are entitled to".

                  James,
                  Have you been going to FORUM HOE SPELLING CLASSES? It isn't like you to have multiple spelling errors in one post.

                  When in doubt, post code. A second set of eyes might see something you missed.

                    Ok, here is my story. I have told this before but don't want to go searching... One day I was running a program dcc for the first time through. At one point I could see it was going to crash and crash in a bad way. I pressed the e-stop and the machine kept moving!!! Luckily I had time to react and press the "done" button which paused the execution.

                    So, while investigating I took the back off of the jog box. I found that the e-stop switch has two parts. A mechanical part and an electrical part. The electrical part had popped loose from the mechanical so pushing the mechanical did not activate the electrical. I just snapped it back into place and all is now good.

                    Now, I test my e-stop about once per week just to make sure it is still working.

                    You might want to check to ensure that this connection isn't loose on your machine.

                      When I run my DCC program for the first time, I ALWAYS hold the joy-box with my thumb on the RUN HOLD button. Just as fast and easy as the e-stop and not as easy to break. Also, for any program I create 'offline', I will run it 1 point at a time using CTRL-E for each point and movement. I can then insert move points and tip changes as needed.

                        I also try to use the run hold button but have found that there is often a lag time between when I press it and when the machine actually stops. Maybe something to do with machine differences or my computer being slow.

                        I try to run stuff 1 feature at a time but have found that often times it will skip alignments and not apply them to features after the alignment!

                          I hear ya. However, my machine is OLD and HEAVY. Makes no difference between the two, takes just as long to stop either way, so I use the run-hold.

                            I may have been unclear... The lag time is not due to the machine "coasting" what happens is I press the run-hold button and the machine keeps moving with power for a short period. If measuring a feature such as a ID circle sometimes it will take 2 more hits before it stops.
