I am having problems with a Brigdgeport Interact 2 Series II with a TNC 151 control (1988 machine).
The error message "Y MEASURING SYSTEM DEFECTIVE A" appears when the power enable button is pressed.
This is not a code that is in the fault finding section of the manual. Anyone knows what this means?
The voltage reading at the trip switch for the XYaxis is only giving a constant 25 volts, but it is only receiving 25 volts from the controlling relay. When the power enable button is pressed it gets the full 110 volts for an instant then falls back to 25 volts, holding the power enable button in makes no difference.
So far we think that we have traced it back to the computer control as this appears to feed the relay which operates the XY trip switch.
The XY trip switch has been replaced and the relay swapped with another but this makes no difference to the machine, axis drive motors are also cold.
We have had a few problems over the last month or so and have had to reload the machine parameters twice. When drip feeding longer programmes the memory fills up but then dumps the rest of the programme so you find line 2500 has become 5000 and the machine is lost.
The problems may be related and I suspect the computer control is playing up but hope that it is something simple as it cost approximately £1000 for an exchange unit about 10 years ago.
All help gratefully received. Making things not fixing them is more my cup of tea.
