Hi everyone, I have a problem with the 630 VME vision system: during startup machine, an error popup appears saying "Did not receive request to load machine model within timeout period. Possible machine error condition exists. Do you want to continu

Hi! I have encountered this problem so many times. Here are the possible cause of your machine problem. 1. PCI board or PCI to motherboard cable. 2. VME memmory card. 3. VME board itself. 4. Power supply for VME board. Hope could help.

Hi All, We have a handfull of GSM's here and some are newer than others. I was wondering what the options are as far as upgrades to the VME chasis. We have our oldest running with EPC-4, EPC-5, EPC5A and so on.... Can newer EPC units be used in t

We have a GSM1 with version 1.4. The machine has the old VME chassis. So to upgrade the software (to use enhanced component setup) the VME chassis has to be upgraded. We had UIC in last year to look at this and they would upgrade the VME and software

Probably similar cost to find one on ebay or a used machine broker vs. repair unless the fault is obvious from visual inspection. I would be interested to know if anyone does service cards from these older VME chassis though.

Hi Duro. The problem is that my VME card and ISA card was tested in another machine and both are working. So I suspect the CAN boards or Motherboard.

It depends on what VME box build it is. Rev. C, D, E etc. There are upgrade kits for the complete VME chassi and it includes some re-wiring also. For this You must contact UIC and provide them with the machine ser.nr, current Os-system, UPS s/w ver.

Well it seems you are onto something with the vme power supply. The issue has resurfaced and I did notice the LED's on the keyboard went out when the issue occurs. I looked at the power distribution board to the left of the vme and it shows the +12V

Stephen, there is one CMOS battery on PC board. I haven't check it, but time and date on PC is correct, so I guess it should not be problem. On VME controller is another CR2032 battery (based on VME datasheet it is for some RAM memory). That battery
