This fault is caused by a slipping brake and movement of the robot while it is supposed to be stopped. To temporarily prevent this fault until the motor can be changed, perform the following procedure.

How to disable the servo timeout if an axis consistently is dropping

  • [MENU]
  • [0] “Next”
  • “System”
  • [F1] “TYPE”
  • “Variables”
  • Scroll down through the alphabetical list to $PARAM_GROUP
  • [ENTER]
  • [ENTER]
  • Scroll till you find $SV_OFF_ENB
  • [ENTER]
  • Go through and change all “TRUE” values to [F5] “FALSE”
  • Power off the robot
  • Power up the robot in a cold start for the changes to take effect

This will disable all servo timeouts for this group.  To reenable, just choose [F4] for “TRUE”

This fault is generated by a controlling device, such as a PLC, sending an Immediate Stop Signal to the robot on the UOP Input. To temporarily disable this signal and all UOP signals, disable the UOP inputs.

Go to system -> config and disable UOPs

If your robot does not have a config menu then do the following.

1) Hit menu -> 0 Next -> System

2) Hit F1 and select Variables

3) scroll down to $OPWORK -> hit enter

4) scroll to $UOP_DISABLE

5) change value to 1 and hit enter
** the robot will no longer run in an automatic mode with UOP control until the value is changed back to Zero.

This error occurs if one or more axis had moved while the controller power was off.
