    Conquest 42 / Fanuc 0-TC / Parameters needed

    Hi there,

    I have this Conquest 42 with Fanuc 0-TC, serial number is CS-1337-C. It lost parameters when I changed the keypad that was falling apart, and the new one was too tight and obviously kept a couple buttons pushed in when I turned it on...

    I contacted Hardinge USA and the service guy sent me 3 files which are '900 stsndard cPAR~1.txt', 'CSGENERAL.TXT.dat' and 'CSMACRO.txt'. He told me they were generic files for that Conquest series and not specific to my machine. Needless to say, it didn't helped me much. Those '900 stsndard cPAR~1.txt' parameters bring alarm 409 and 1008 with the load meter maxing out and AL-34 in the back board. I've narrowed the P917 being the cause of it, and if I leave it as in 'CSGENERAL.TXT.dat', I don't get those alarms. Instead, I get the 1004 alarm even though the brake does work. I can do the zero return, but it doesn't get out of the ZRN state. It doesn't go to 'auto' and ready.

    Would someone with comparable machine be able to send me his parameters?

    -It has 10’’x14’’ travel, 10 stations turret with 5 live tools, tailstock, tool probe.
    -It doesn’t have sub-spindle, part catcher, barfeeder, air blast, hi pressure coolant.
    -Not sure if C is full or indexer, we’ve only used it as indexer. The first guy to set it up for us said the backup batteries were dead and parameters gone. I don’t know what he did to make it work. We’ve only been able to use the C as indexer since then though.

    Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

    Did you get the 300 series diagnostic bits to tell the brain what kind of machine you have - 10/12 station turret, live tooling/not, tailstock/subspindle, like that?

    No, that is not something I got. What Hardinge sent me was the P900's for 0TC, and the P0-P900 + P8000 for generic CS.

    If someone has diagnostic parameters, I'd like to take a look a those. And if for 10 station turret / Live tooling / tailstock / tool setter touch probe, that'd be even better. But I'll take a look at anything.

    Thanx

    Or would someone have the Fanuc 0-T parameters manual? That could help me I guess.

    You the man. That's 0-TD, but I guess it's worth looking into an try a couple things, see how far off (or not) those are from 0-TC. Thank you.

    Are you able to email me over the same parameters for the Harding conquest T42?
    I lost them all and I need to get some jobs out like yesterday. I am dead in the water. If at all possible I am not quite sure how to load them back into machine so I would greatly appreciate any knowledge or information you can give me

    Thank you in advance

    The parameters are unique to the machine, compiled by the MTB at design time.
    Your only hope is either the OEM or anyone with the same machine.
    All I have is the Fanuc parameter manual, but all that gives is the parameter definitions, you also need the 900 option parameters.

    My issue is actually slightly different. I accidentally changed a parameter when trying to change the backlash compensation. As we all know when you change a parameter the first time it alarms out and goes to the alarm page. So I can't remember what page I was on. My issue is that it now has a different travel amount when jogging. I basically want to compare parameters from machine to machine. I can always look up the numbers that are different.
