  • Overload Error

    Hello,
    I encountered a problem...I started to take a vector point, when the cmm beeped just before touching the part and stopped. I took all extensions off of the probe (to prevent dmaging the styli etc). Then turned everything off. Now upon restarting I have an "Auto Overload Error" on the head controller. The small hand held box that changes the angles. The CMM is a B&S Global Status with the newer controller. My psi is at 58. Now, is there a reset button that I can access on the controller? Keep in mind, the machine never came into contact with the part or anything else.

    So can you change the angles with this box? Does your probe head look like it has erectile dysfunction?

      It's probably due to you using that [email protected] cylinder probe. Man, I hate those things.

      Well, have you tried to change the angle manually to free it up?

        When I took all of the extras off, the head disengaged. This usually corrects itself upon the restart. But when I do the machine start, it kicks back out. Nothing is in a bind.x,y and z are all free.

            Ok, I got it going. Thanks for the suggestions. I still don't have a clue as to why it would overload from no contact........

              What head do you have? If it is a PH9/PH9A, it may be wearing out and losing it's grip. IT can happen. A sudden stop or start may be JUST enough for it to un-seat the head. IF it is one of those heads, there is a screw (WARNING, USE AT YOUR OWN RISK!) that adjsut the seating pressure of the head. It is located on the side of the head. All you'll see is a little hole, but in there is a screw you can tighten (or loosen) to adjust the seating pressure.

                It is a PH10MQ and is in very good condition. However I may need to go to the med force module.

                Thanks,
