Saving to EEPROM
1. When the correct parameter values are
in the ProTern Project, they must be
saved to the EEPROM for permanent
memory storage in the actuator.
2. This can be done by selecting
Tools/Recall or using the Red Diamond
Icon.

would like to save to. All boxes
underneath will automatically be
checked.
2. Choosing Project writes to all parameters
in every actuator in the project.
3. Choosing A0 writes to all parameter in
Actuator 0.
4. You can also download selectively to
specific points or to actuator level only.

Command Page
Command Page allows motion. The
following areas are found in the screen
capture on the right:
1
1. Shows data for each point
2. Change view between what is in
software (proTern) vs what is stored in
EEPROM.
3. Allows Servo to be turned on and off

4. Issue commands
5. Generate Moves
6. Configuring Trace Data to be captured
(view by clicking graph icon)

Command Page - Moves
1
1. Moves are not allowed until axis has
been homed (area 4)
2. Moves can be generated by double
clicking Black boxes in area 1 or clicking
one of the Move commands in area 5.
3. The GoTo Px in area 5 and Teach Px are
changed to different point number by
single clicking in area 1.
4. Jog In or out in area 7 to move actuator
to correct position. Teach stores the data
in the Program point only. It must still be
saved to EEPROM.

Troubleshooting Steps

Troubleshooting Steps
1. If actuator isn’t moving, check:
1. Is the LED on back of actuator green, red, or off
1. Green = No Error detected, Go to step 2
2. Red = Check Alarm Code (see page 26)
3. Off = Check if power source and power cable are OK, replace if
necessary.
2. If Green and not moving, remove load and try moving again.
1. If moves without load,
1. check for mechanical misalignment of load
2. Check Protern to determine if input signals are reaching actuator; if
not check for break in command cable or loose wire on chaining
terminal
3. If signals are reaching actuator, actuator moves, but PLC doesn’t
recognize position complete, home or alarm
1. Check Command cable or breakout board if OK return to Wittenstein for replacement of Output
Optocouplers

Troubleshooting Steps (continued)
2. If doesn’t move w/o load when commanded, remove power and try to
move by hand.
1. If it moves by hand, return to Wittenstein to have motor evaluated.
2. If doesn’t move by hand, return to Wittenstein to have cylinder
evaluated.
3. Not possible to swap motor or cylinder in the field.
2. If Actuator is moving but slowly:
1. Check for mechanical misalignment
2. Verify load weight is not “too much”
3. If not too heavy or misaligned, remove load to determine if actuator still
moves slowly.
1. If yes, return Ternary to Wittenstein for cylinder Evaluation
2. If moves slowly in one direction only, probable crash, return to Wittenstein
for encoder re-alignment.
3. If moves OK without Load, check again for mis-alignment or load weight.

Checking Error Codes
•Real-time Statistics must be on
In case the LED is Red, check alarm code.
1. Realtime Statistics must be on
2. Alarm code can be read out of real time
data
3. Consult Error code data on next page

Error Codes
Alarm
Items
Check and repair
B0
Data error in Bank30 ( Bank0)
Download default data from PC from file.
B1
Data error in Bank31 (Bank1)
Download default data from PC from file.
B8-B9
The relation with encoder and motor is wrong (
connection, circuits ...)
Check the internal friction without power. Check the motor cable. This can be caused if
motor rotor or cylinder is locked (internally or due to external jam). Return for Repair
BB-BE
Error at origin return (Homing)
Check the movement and load condition at homing. Increase homing current if
necessary. If error continues, Return for repair.
C0
Over velocity
C1
Motor abnormal movement
D0
Over voltage input
This can be caused by power supply. If the actual power level is OK, return for repair.
D1
Internal over voltage by regenerative power
Check the movement with default data. If this doesn't fix error, return for repair
D8
Positional deviation counter overflow
Due to continuously movement in 1 direction (for rotary only). Set shortest travel bit to
allow for rollover. If error remains, return for repair.
E0
Over heat (85degC)
Change the load condition. If it is not caused by load condition or excessive ambient
temperature, return for repair.
E8-EC
Encoder error
Return for Repair.
F8
Check sum error in EEPROM
Re-write default data. If "F8" error still happens, Return for repair.
Tim Brennan
Can be caused by vertical falling axis (drive runaway). If can't remove condition that
causes this, return for repair

Other Modes of failure
1. Damaged or pinched cables. Do not
bend cables past maximum bend radius
(see chart at the right)
2. Rotated cylinder. Do not apply
rotational force to output rod. Always
apply counterforce to prevent internal
bushing from being damaged.

29
Other Modes of failure
3. If positioning repeatability goes down, check for rotational play in output rod.
This can be a sign of wear on the output bushing.
4. If Cylinder makes loud or grinding noise, typically due to damaged input
bearings, normally caused by crash. Return for repair.
