Rexroth Error Code F2057/blog

Rexroth error codes are a handy heads up from your IndraDrive that something has gone wrong. Sometimes it’s a matter of overheating or a broken cable or another mechanical, physical issue. Sometimes, as with F2057, it’s more of a programming error.

F2057 means that the target position is out of travel range. The target position is the end position for the machine controlled by the drive. A robotic arm might be sent to a specific end point, for example. It should stop at a defined point X.The drive recognizes that the point X in question is not a good place for that arm to be, so it alerts the operator and ends the movement.

Essentially, the drive has been told to end a machine’s movement in a place which is not in the area where the machine is supposed to travel. It could be that the machine is supposed to travel within the available space in its cage, for example. If the location specified would take the machine outside of its safe area, it won’t follow through.

Check the position and see if it needs to be corrected. A simple keying error can give your system the wrong target position. It could be that the stored parameters are off. The machine could have outdated information about its location and surroundings. Especially if you’re putting a new machine into service or moving a machine, it may simply be that the digital reality of the space doesn’t match the physical reality.

Reprogram the drive and you may find that your problem is solved.
