  • Probe head controller box


    I have a brown and sharp CMM that lost power (Power went out at the shop) and when I restarted it the Probe head controller box PHC 10-2 flashes the power and stop light at the same time then goes back off the
    PHC dead in the water. machine wont do anything .Checked air pressure its fine . So what else ?

    Thanks in advance.

    fuses, all those boxes have fuses in them. If you didn't blow a fuse, then the power spike that caused the outage probably fried something important.

      The PH10 controller is switched off if the machine is in E-Stop. You might be looking at a symptom and not a cause. I suggest you try supplying power directly to the PH-10 controller to verify it is working properly if you want to check this part of the machine out.

      I assume you cannot do a machine start (or it shuts down immediately after doing a machine start - which is why the PH-10 flashes). You need to find out the error message from the controller.

      If your machine has a Leitz protocol controller then you can select 'Edit - Preferences - Machine interface Setup' and at the top right of the dialog is a button marked 'Terminal'. When you open the terminal window type the command STATUS and it should tell you what is troubling the controller.

      I doubt your problem is the PH-10 controller.
