Well, we are definitely going to need more information from you to be able to provide any support.

E-mail support@galilmc.com with information about "L3 in the drive, blink two times in one second appox." This is not our drive so you will need to find out from the drive manufacture what type of fault this indicates.

Also, after this occurs, connect to the controller and send the following commands
SC
TC1
Copy and paste the responses to those commands in the e-mail that you send to support@galilmc.com.

Thank you,

First one excuse my english if is not correct sometimes.
well, andy, SC: 1,9,1,1
TC1: 0
the driver is DMC1540 Rev2.0j, 21778
I have made some changes in the program
- limit the speed to positive values becasue sometimes the knife moves bakward
- after FE instruction, BG, and AM, when the movement is complete define current position as 0, because sometimes, when the drive is in error and I tell the position error, this is greater than the software limit.

I have got removed some errors.
Now the error is, probably the master send a forward signal with a low speed, and after this, the machine is in error.
How can I Know if the error is undercurrent, or another with precision

thanks for your interest and I hope that you have could understand me

I have found the error, another part of the machine is sending the abort signal, the knives move on and an error position happens. And the question is, how can I cancel the input. and what is the pin?
Is the pin 24 in J2?, and a bridge between pin 24 and 19 (INCOM) is correct to resolve this problem?
Thank you and i hope that you can help me with this

Pin 24 on the J2 connector is the Abort input. You can also find it on the ICM-1100, terminal number 76 or 78 depending the ICM rev (see the DMC-1500 manual for more information).
http://www.galilmc.com/support/manuals.php

It is not recommended that you disable the Abort input because it is a safety feature of the controller.

E-mail support@galilmc.com with which axis is working, which one is not and any information you can dig up about the errors indicated on your amplifiers.
