When you check the Rexroth Troubleshooting Guides — and we’ll be happy to provide you with one — you are likely to see announcements like this:
“Only Rexroth service engineers are allowed to replace the control section.”
Allowed? Your Rexroth electric motion control components belong to you. Why would you not be allowed to repair them?
Bypassing the correct procedures is dangerous — not just for your machine, though it is, but for you and your coworkers as well.
Electrocution, explosions, and other not-fun stuff are real possibilities if you try to fix something that you shouldn’t. We often get relaxed about our machinery. This can be particularly true of the Rexroth Indramat components that can be in place for decades without any problems. They’ve never exploded before, right?
Rexroth motion control components are not designed to be repaired on the machine. They’re designed to be pulled off the machine and quickly replaced. This reduces downtime.
The faulty component can go in for factory repair and reman. It will return to you as good as new, with a new warranty. Or, if you prefer, you can choose to replace it with a reman component and get on with your work.
The error codes you see on your component are intended to give you a good idea of what might be going on so you can determine which unit might be faulty. You might even find that the cables are your real problem. It’s better to find that out before you open up your drive or servo motor and destroy it.
