    Fanuc Yellow Cap to Gecko 320X


    I am at a loss here as to what my problem is.

    I had my machine running fine up until a few days ago. I moved some of the components into a second cabinet due to noise issues through my USB.

    When I hooked everything back up, both axis started moving on their own and have remained uncontrollable. I confirmed my pinout. I have since unhooked the Z drive servo to try working one at a time. My status lights on the drive show green.

    Is anybody else running gecko drives to yellow cap servos? Odd thing is that I have another machine running the same setup and it is fine.

    I have about 7 hours into troubleshooting and feel like I'm worse off than when I started. Any experts that can weight in?

    Maybe you have the X & Y encoders or motor outputs crossed when you reconnected?
