    Yang SMT500 - Lost paramaters

    I bought a second hand SMT500 a year ago. When I received it, I backed up all the files. We are 3/4s the way through a full refurbishment and I wanted to test the limit switches. Unfortunately, it has taken that long that the batteries did not keep the settings.

    I cannot find where I stored my backup of the data. Can these files be recreated ?? I hope so.

    Thanks Wallace.

    Re: Yang SMT500 - Lost paramaters

    I have a complete printout of the Parameters - About 6000 lines of data. I also have screen shots of the XY and Z settings.

    I have OCRed the printout and now it is in a text file. Any idea on the next step ?

    Re: Yang SMT500 - Lost paramaters

    I've made some progress and found a lot more info in the manuals, but getting the machine to 'recover' from memory loss is a issue.

    It has a Fanuc O-MD controller. After boot I have some of the screens, but it looks like, unless some of the parameters are manuall set, some functions are not working. Eg read from the serial port and mode keys etc.

    I have found parameters on setting the serial port, but, the hard edit key does not light and I beleive that I need to have the machine in edit mode before it will talk RS232.

    Any suggestions ?

    Re: Yang SMT500 - Lost paramaters

    A nice member from Canada talked me through entering the 0900-0950 parameters. Once these were entered, the machine had a big wake up.
    All the button and screen options came alive and I can do a lot more now. I have a few alarms to sort out. I presume these are incorrect parameters and I'm hoping I can download the file I have into them machine ignoring the alarms.
