Working on a local job today, our customer was complaining of intermittent B axis encoder faults on his XYZ 1060HS with 4th and 5th axis’ and 840DSL control.
When the X axis was fully at limit, the wiring harness on the 4th / 5th axis was getting pulled and faulting out. This time rather than repair, we replaced. The old faulty encoder cable was completely stripped out and replaced with new, genuine Siemens encoder cable.
Since the replacement the machine hasn’t missed a beat, which means a happy customer and productive machine.
