I don't work on quads but I can give you some things to look for... Each of the moving axis work off a motor that is controlled by a "drive". Some of these drives have a fault or error output that is connected to the motion controller. One of your

We have two QUAD 4C working in tandem. 3 months ago the EPCU battery (QUAD # 2) died, then we change it. Then downloaded the MODs from the controller to the assembler(does simultaneously on both machines). All this time we continue to work normally.

Yes you can upload modcodes from assembler. This works for all quad c-series machines along with some others. I would NOT overwrite anything. I would save them to a new file so you have the originals. Your original modcodes are good.....your machine

bobpan quick background. I am very new to the Quad machines, I used to "run" one, but I never learned the inner workings of a machine. I just purchased 2 used quad 4cs, I had a training session over the weekend with a very knowledgeable guy and l

HI! We have a QUAD 4C since 8 months . Yesterday the head remained immobile in the position where it put the last component to complete a board and indicates Motor Error # 5 (SRX engine communication time-out) and I don’t know what it means and ho

Motor Error 5 is usually an interlock error. Take off the rear right cover and look at the red and green led's on the driver cards. If they are both lit....you have a door open or if you have carts....a feeder base switch is up. Good Luck

Thanks for the response bobpan! LED's on the driver cards work well (green with doors closed and both red&green on with door open), and I don't use the carts. The head doesn't move after power on and inmediately you can listen alarm.

Are both red and green leds on for the driver cards (they are located in the bottom right of the machine). If they are both on then you have an interlock opened. If this is the case....check the side doors....sometimes they are not shut all the way.

Clear the memory again and try to input by handheld the modcodes 1 by 1 and see when the problem happens. You can input a number then press home and home. Sounds to me like a number is incorrect but its hard to tell. Are you sure the file that you ar
