    Default 04p-c (amada coma 557) 2042 w.dog timer (m10)

    Hi all, I keep getting a 2042 w. dog timer every time I reposition our Amada COMA 557. We just purchased this machine used and I'm not to familiar with it. Does anybody know what causes this or how to fix it. I would really appreciate the help. Thanks!

    What do you mean by repositioning? Does that mean sending axes to home position or moving a certain axis to a position?

    I am moving the "x" axis to a certain position. The turret press only goes to 72" without repositioning but I need to punch at 80" so I move/reposition the "x" axis by 8".

    So you are going beyond the specified limits of the machine. I am guessing this is an over travel type alarm then is that correct? Seems odd why they would call it a watch dog timer error.

    I don't think it's an over travel alarm but i could be wrong. We have two Amada's with the same travel distance and same 04p-c controller. I can run the same program on one machine and it works fine but then I can run it on the other and I'm getting the 2042 alarm. Here is what the manual says about the alarm:

    2042 W. DOG TIMER (M10) Completion of M10 is not signaled
    -Contact Amada

    I have no idea what (M10) means

    Do you have an M10 in the program? If so is that the line that it stops on? M10 is often table clamp on a vertical or horizontal machine.

    Our Amada's are G-code. The reposition command starts with "G27".

    What stage of the repositioning cycle does it get to before the watchdog alarm?
    Do the workholder rams come down?
    Could be a pressure switch not sensing the pressure rise for the workholder pneumatic circuit.
    When the sheet is in position (the G70 in the program), the workholder rams come down (maybe you also have rams under the sheet would come up as well). There is a pressure sensor on the air line to the workholder rams, when the workholder ram stops moving (by clamping the sheet) the pressure increases in the air line, signalling the workholders are in position. Over the years this pressure switch can corrode or gum up due to moisture in the compressed air lines. Check the diagnostics (is it diagnostic 2006 bit 2 ?) to read the switch state.
