ZERO MEMORY for Battery Replacement or New Memory Expansion
If installing a new battery, ignore memory board step 2
STEP 1 – RECORD ALL DATA
Enter the command BL to display the current Backlash setting
If possible, save all programs and offsets using the PU command options.
Save PARAMETERS in the CNC control.
Use the below form to record your current parameters settings BEFORE zeroing memory.
At the CNC prompt ENTER NEXT COMMAND.
Enter the command SETP to display the parameter tables and record each setting (take a picture)
After clearing the memory, you will need to verify all these CNC parameters. The default 4020 parameters are loaded.
Note: The original parameters set at factory shipping are on a sticker located inside the Pendant door.
STEP 2 – INSTALL MEMORY EXPANSION BOARD (when applicable).
Power OFF the machine
Remove the 1400 CPU board and attach the expanded memory board and reinstall the board.
STEP 3 – CLEAR AND FORMAT THE MEMORY.
Power ON the machine.
Enter CNC Diagnostics – Enter the command DI then type G0 3000 and press ENTER
Note: use zero not the letter O
Locate the Diagnostics page that shows the ZERO MEMORY function and select.
ENTER Y (to lose all programs)
Locate the Diagnostics page that shows START CNC and select that function.
Power Off CNC
Wait 10 seconds.
Reinitialize the zeroed memory for the CNC format:
At ENTER NEXT COMMAND
Enter command RI
Respond to the prompts with a Y to reformat the memory.
(control will restart)
AT ENTER NEXT COMMAND
command to set the current tool in the tool turret as number 1
Enter BL command and set original backlash values
Enter SETP and set all parameter values to the recorded values from the work sheet in step 1.
Press MANUAL to exit parameter menu
STEP 4 – TESTING THE MEMORY.
AT ENTER NEXT COMMAND
Enter DT command - All values should be zero
If memory expansion was installed, enter the ME command to verify the new memory capacity
IMPORTANT NOTE: The machine is ready to run. Caution needs to be taken since the CNC parameters have been changed and the possibility of incorrectly setting a parameter could affect the machines operation. It is recommend that you “Dry-Run” the machine and verify correct operation of the machine before machining parts.
