HS-98 overtravel problem

HS-98 overtravel problem

HS-98 overtravel problem

I randomly getting 501 overtravel -Z alarm. Can't figure out the cause.

RE: HS-98 overtravel problem

I have no idea as to what machine you have but is it possible your cutting grates are worn, assuming this is a flat machine? If so put some hoops of banding on the table to lift the material.

RE: HS-98 overtravel problem

I don't know if you got this figured out yet, it is the grid shift. You have to change the parameter 1850 Z.

What has happened is the head has crashed at some point, and the coupling between the servo and the screw has slipped. It is designed to do this. Because it slipped, the position of the z axis has shifted up just a bit.

RE: HS-98 overtravel problem

how to change parameter 1850 Z ?

RE: HS-98 overtravel problem

** I do not recommend doing this unless you are very careful and can understand and follow the instruction exactly.**

MDI mode
Offset setting (Hard Key)
Setting (Soft key)
It should say "parameter write 1:enable 0: disable

Type the number "1" INPUT

System (Hard Key)
PARAM (Soft key)
type in the number 1850 "NO.SRH" (soft key)
Write done everything on that page.

High light just the value for Z type the number you want then hit "INPUT".

Offset setting (Hard Key)

"0" INPUT then hit RESET to clear the alarm.

If you want to move it 0.020" (inches) then


take the original value and add or subtract 500 depending on which way you want to go.

RE: HS-98 overtravel problem

Thats looks easy enough for me. smarty I usually getting alarm when Z is -0.06
HS-98 suppose to work with minimum 20 gage materials. But I'm cutting 24 gage.Thats a problem.

RE: HS-98 overtravel problem

It worked ! [thumbsup2]
