This week we have been looking at multiple topology errors on a Dugard Eco VMC with Siemens 828D control and Sinamics drives.
After confirming that all hardware was ok we discovered that the Control had lost the topology data for drive object 6 which was the 4th axis and all it's associated hardware (motor, drive, encoder and SMI module).
Using HMI startup and our Simatic field PG, we were able to reteach the control and configure the 4th axis. We made new backups and got the machine back up and running again.
