    Default Haas mill WIPS calibration not functioning correctly

    Just installed a WIPS system on my mill with classic control and having issues with the calibration cycle. I've tested the table and spindle probes and both of them are registering at the console with the audible beep as per the install manual. When I start the table probe calibration the OMI is not turning on (assuming it should be automatically turning on when a probe cycle is run). If I manually turn on the probe in MDI mode and run the calibration the Z axis returns to zero and I get an alarm 1000 which doesn't exist - alarm text states "alarm text not found" I've cleared macros, work and tool offsets and continue to get the same results. I'm wondering if the 9000 programs on my system are not the V3.0 that are required, not sure how to find out the loaded version. It's the same as what came on the backup USB. Hoping maybe someone has some insight?

    Found the V3.0 files on the DIY Haas site, turns out the coordinate system needed to be reset to Fanuc. now the OMI is turning on like it should but getting alarm 1092 tool setter open...

    I'm of no help, but please let us know what you find out. I have a 2004 haas I'd like to buy wips for in the future.

    Have you checked the batteries?

    With a little research, you can find an app for your phone that walks you through it, think Googleplay maybe?

    Also, if you happened to bump the stylus while installing batteries you may have changed the settings. We bought a couple new tool probes from Ebay, I think, and one of them was set to the timed off setting instead of off with a signal from receiver.

    Double checked settings to make sure they were Haas default and they are, now I'm waiting till tomorrow for a couple replacement stylus shear links for the table probe.... you can guess what happened. Will start tweaking settings once i'm up and running again. I'm thinking maybe turning on the filter will give me better results. It's a minimill so vibration may be the culprit due to it's light weight.

    Under normal circumstances i think WIPS is pretty much plug and play, I'm setting up a second hand machine that was previously modified at the hands of a maintenance guy so needless to say I had to completely rebuild it. I've reset factory parameters but it's possible i've missed something - I just have a lot more variables to troubleshoot than your normal mill
