    Gildemeister CTX400 Eltro Pilot Keypad

    Hello all,

    I recently installed an EPL 2.2 control unit repaired and refurbished by DMG Mori into a CTX 400 lathe. I have a good boot up with all parameters initialised.
    When prompted to press operating mode key I have no response from the keypad. I believe i have a good connection back to the control and thought maybe the board behind the keypad may be faulty. There is signal between the control and keypad as when i start without connection i get "system error". with connection everything boots fine but i have no response from keys.
    Id appreciate any help with this.

    Thank you.
    Paul

    Problem solved. Sent Keypad FTE board to an automation company for test/repair.
    Control now working however some parameters still incorrect for the machine.
