    Torq Cut Tool Changer Thyristor Failing

    First, apologies - I know there were some old threads on this subject but I can't find them anymore...

    I have a Torq Cut 22/DX32 VMC. Every few months, the thyristor (Grayhill 70M-OAC5A) which controls the "out" direction of the tool changer fails on the LC-TLAUF board. I've now replaced it three times in two years. Any ideas about the root cause of this problem so I can eliminate it?

    TIA,

    Mark

    ...possible failing Solenoid Coil drawing to much current (amperage) for the relay to handle. Looks like that 70M-OAC5A Relay is rated 3 amp

    You should definitely check the coil and compare its DC resistance with a known good one. Also check if the "IN" relay gets hotter than the "OUT" relay during operation.

    Another possible reason is an intermittent short in the wiring.
