You’ve had your Rexroth legacy drives in storage for 18 months or so, you reinstall them on the line, power them up, and for some reason they don’t work, even though they were working fine when you put them into storage. What’s up?
First, check the cables. We can’t count the number of times we’ve come out on an emergency call and found a kink in the cable. Since this is one of the easiest things to check, it makes sense to look here first.
Next, check the battery. Not all Rexroth legacy components use batteries, but some do. The CLM 1.3 control, for example. We have these batteries, and you should certainly order a couple spares if you have a component that uses batteries. Not sure? If a manual inspection doesn’t make you more certain, order a manual for the item in question.
Think about how you started up the components. If you powered everything up fully right away, this thinking is like when you were a kid and you had to sit in the corner and think about what you did, because you might have fried your equipment. Follow the instructions in your manual whenever you power up.
If you did that right, think about the transport and storage. The parameters might need refreshing if there were flaws in these processes. Data can be corrupted or lost in between using the equipment for the last time and using it again. In this case, you need a known good backup.
If it’s not yet clear what the problem is, give us a call. We have the nation’s largest stock of emergency Rexroth replacement units, and we can provide phone support, field support, and factory reman.
