B22 Error - Z-Slow Gravity Compensation option
Posted by ing. Sander Galestien on 27 March 2017 04:31 PM

Applicable to MasterScanner version Kubuntu 32bit - v3.2.10 or LINUX MINT 64bit - v3.4.x or higher.

The Z axis (vertical) has two major speed settings which can be found under the 'Maintenance' button --> 'Machine Speeds' option. The 'Rate Z Axis Slow' is typically set to 60. The 'Rate Z Axis Quick' is typically set to 255.
The 'slow' speed is used for precision positioning, whereas the 'quick' speed is used to quickly move to the desired position.

The 'Rate Z Axis Slow gravity compensation' allows you to give the 'slow' speed in the upwards direction an extra boots to compensate for gravity when the machine moves the probe in the upwards direction.
The 'Rate Z Axis Slow gravity compensation' is in the range of 0 - 20, and a typical value is 10.

When you encounter "B22: Time out on motor movement!" it is most likely that the Z axis (vertical) experiences difficulties to move, usually in the upwards direction.
You can try the following steps (in a random order):
1] increase the 'Rate Z Axis Slow' in steps of 5 to a maximum of 80
2] increase the 'Rate Z Axis Slow gravity compensation' in steps of 5 to a maximum of 20.

When the "B22: Time out on motor movement!" still occurs after increasing the 'Rate Z Axis Slow' to 80 and the 'Rate Z Axis Slow gravity compensation' to 20, then it is advised to contact IAC for repair or maintenance.
