Problem:

Machine stops and message „Pacemaker: Profibus communication error“ is displayed.

Possible Causes & Resolutions:

  • Cooling water valve: Wrong type of valve or plug without protective circuit (suppressor). The voltage peaks can cause interferences in the Pacemaker electronics. Always use the original plug and valve type.
  • Profibus plug: On the plug of first and last client of profibus system the termination resistant must be set to ON. Otherwise interference may occur.
  • Profibus cables: Check the position of the cables in the control unit. If they are close to contactors, high voltage peaks can create interferences.

  • If the Led are not switching off after machine power off (wait at least 5min. !), remove the X101 plug on the IPC and plug it back after some seconds.
