Please read and understand this entire manual before installing or using your Exatron taper. A short glossary of terms used in this manual and other keys to understanding is found at the end of this chapter.

Exatron Safety Warnings


Typically, the taper is simply one part of a complete test system. It is the responsibility of the company purchasing the taper to properly train all taper operators in all of the safety practices required for every component of the test system. The following safety procedures must be followed at all times.

WARNING! Keep fingers, hair, and clothing away from any moving parts on the taper. Its motors are very powerful and can cause severe injury. WARNING! Never try to stop an action of the taper with your hands or any other device. To stop, press the Emergency Stop button on the right side of the control box.

Chapter 1: Safety and Support

Using compressed air can be hazardous. It is the responsibility of the company purchasing the taper to properly train all taper operators in every aspect of the safety practices associated with the use of compressed air. WARNING! Never operate any Exatron system that requires compressed air without an approved air regulator and shutoff valve, such as that originally supplied with your system. WARNING! Never unplug a pressurized air hose while the air regulator is turned on.

Facilities Requirements
Air Conditioning and Environmental Requirements
The Model 1050 handler should be installed in a temperature-controlled, dust-free environment to preclude dust and dirt particles from contaminating its moving parts, especially those parts which come into contact with the devices being tested. The life of your handler is greatly enhanced by keeping it as clean as possible. See Chapter 6 for instructions. There are no special ventilation requirements.

Electrical Requirements
Handlers shipped either within the United States or offshore have built-in switching electrical supply capability for 100-volt AC to 240-volt AC, 50Hz to 60Hz at 3 amps or less. For more information see "Power Supplies" on page 2-12. Tapers, if included, can be wired for either 100-120-volt AC, 60 Hz; or 220-240-volt AC, 50 Hzthis must be specified at time of order.

Facilities Requirements

Vacuum/Pneumatic Requirements

The power supply is "smart," sensing the voltage in the power line, and matching its power accordingly. If the handler is to be used in an electrically noisy environment or near large electromechanical equipment, Exatron recommends the use of a reliable power conditioner to filter line noise, surges, and spikes which can cause the handler to operate improperly or become damaged. NOTE: 110V AC at 20 amps is preferred when available. CAUTION: Connect the power cord to earth-grounded power outlets only. Electricity supplied to the handler must be within the recommended operating range. If the line voltage drops too low, the handler may not function properly and may be seriously damaged. Verify that correct operating line voltage is present. If it is not, contact Exatron for assistance. Service calls made to the customer facility to correct problems caused by improper electrical supply are not covered by the Exatron warranty.

Vacuum/Pneumatic Requirements
The handler system requires a supply of pressurized air at a minimum of 80 PSI at 2 to 5 CFM (depending on the number of vacuum generators), filtered for proper operation. The air supply must be clean (containing no particulate matter greater than 5 microns in size), oil-free, and dry (having a dew point of 36 degrees F to 38 degrees F) to operate correctly. Dirty, oily or wet air will cause the vacuum generator to malfunction and will make your system unreliable. Because the handler is equipped with a taper, add 0.5 CFM of shop air to the CFM required for the handler itself. The external air source should be attached to the air regulator mounted on the handler base. Before turning on the air regulator and using the handler, make certain the compressed air line is attached to the air regulator fitting. To maintain these levels of pressurized air quality, replace the air filter (Exatron part #GPA-97075) in the air regulator of your handler after every 6000 hours or 12 months of operation, whichever comes first; or if your air regulator registers a pressure drop of 15 PSI. Moisture of any kind will travel through external and internal air lines. This moisture will coat these air lines and the insides of the handler's cylinders, causing them to stick or to stop functioning altogether. The best defense against this kind of contaminate is to prevent it from occurring in the first place by maintaining the clean air supply described above. If the air lines are allowed to become discolored or the moisture traps become overfilled, damage to the system will occur. The only corrective action to take at that point is to replace all of the air lines and to completely clean all of the solenoids supplied by those air lines. Handler damage due to improper air supply is not covered by the Exatron warranty.

Exatron has no time limit on Exatron product support. We will make every effort to repair any of our products, no matter how old it is. Our never-ending support greatly extends the life of many of our products. Exatron offers trade-in value on any of our products as part of a new Exatron equipment purchase. Exact terms are subject to quote at that time. This applies to any used Exatron product as a trade-in on any new Exatron product. We will service our products even when the product is not purchased directly from Exatron. This makes the resale value of Exatron products high as compared to many of our competitors. The customer can sell the product to a third party, used equipment vendor, or online as, for example, on eBay. Exatron will always offer spare parts, service contacts, and rebuilds of any of our products. Most of the materials used in the construction of our products can be recycled. When it comes time to finally retire an Exatron product, the customer can ship the product back to Exatron, at the customers expense, and we will quote the cost to dismantle and recycle the handler. In many cases, there is no charge for this service other than any third-party disposal fees as required. Whenever possible, reusable components will be offered as a donation to local schools. Please note that in many cases, Exatron builds systems using major third-party pieces of equipment. These include lasers, printers, camera inspection, chillers, fume extractors, and other large OEM (original equipment manufacturer) subsystems. Exatron will attempt to provide the same support as best we can for these subsystems. Exact details cannot be determined until the day comes that end-of-life service is required. The customer is free to contact the OEM directly for its end-of life service policy and then deal directly with that OEM.

How the Model 1050 Works

Three Reels

Note that there are two index pins and two stack pinsone set for the handler, and one set for the taper. However, this should not cause confusion, because the set for the handler is discussed in the Model 5000 User Manual; whereas the set for the taper is discussed in this manual, the Model 1050 User Manual.

How the Model 1050 Works


Empty carrier tape is fed on to the tape track from the supply reel, and the tape drive motor advances the tape. Each device is dropped by the shuttle down the taper input track. The stack pin is by default extended, stopping each device. When a signal is received, the index pin extends to hold the line of waiting devices, the stack pin retracts, and the device drops to the tapers pickup site, where it is held by the cover foot. As each device is dropped to the pickup site, the swing arm rotates up over the pickup site, and the pickup head attached to the swing arm extends, picks it up, and retracts. The swing arm then rotates down and the pickup head again extends to place the device in the carrier tape pocket. The drive motor advances the tape one pocket and the process is repeated. A few inches to the left, a group of sensors ensure that each pocket is filled, and that each device lies flat in the pocket. To the left of these sensors, the sealing heads, either thermal or pressure-sensitive, seal the cover tape onto the edges of the carrier tape. At regular intervals set by the user, the takeup reel motor is activated and the filled tape is wound onto the takeup reel.

Identifying Major Parts


Three Reels
The supply reel (sometimes made of cardboard) containing the carrier tape is at the right end of the taper. The takeup reel (usually made of plastic) is at the left end. The supply reel containing the sealing tape is above the sealing area.

Figure 2-2: Reels on Taper

The carrier tape is fed in a right-to-left direction from the supply reel, along the tape track and under the swing arm, past the sealing tape and sealing heads, to the takeup reel. On the top surface, the pitch or gap sensor detects the hole in the center of the empty pocket, and signals the position to the swing arm. When the empty pocket intersects the path of the swing arm, the swing arm places a device into the tape pocket.

Identifying Major Parts

Taper Input Track

After receiving devices from the swing arm, the filled carrier tape is sealed, either with pressure-sensitive sealing tape or heat-sealed cover tape. If pressure is used to seal, the pressure is continuous; but if heat is used to seal, the heat seal heads are pressed against the tape only intermittently to prevent burning. When a specified number of pockets have been filled, the takeup reel motor is activated long enough to wind the slack tape onto the takeup reel. The drive gear drives the tape along, with teeth that protrude upward to fit the holes on the side of the carrier tape. The pinch roller on the pressure roller block presses down on the tape, keeping it meshed with the teeth of the drive gear. Sensor lights EMO (emergency stop) button

Taper Input Track


Although physically attached to the Model 5000 handler, the taper input track is logically part of the taper, because Model 5000s that do not have the taper do not have the taper input track, either. Rather, they are equipped with 8 output tubes instead of 5.

Model 1050 Manual

Chapter 2: System Description

The taper input track is below the shuttle and to the right of the 5 output tubes. Like the input track on the Model 5000 handler, this track also has solenoids that control an index pin, a stack pin, and a cover foot. During a production run, the stack pin is by default extended, restraining the waiting line of devices. When the swing arm on the tape-and-reel assembly is ready to move another device, the index pin is extended between the lowest device in line and the device just above it. Then the stack pin is retracted, allowing the lowest device to fall. The stack pin and cover foot are activated simultaneously to prevent the device from jumping the stop block. Thus, when the stack pin retracts to release a device, the cover foot is extended to hold the device at the pickup site momentarily until any bouncing action stops.

Emergency Stop Button


The Emergency Stop button on the taper control box shuts down everything on the taper only, including the heat seal; whereas the Emergency Stop button on the body of the handler stops all motors. Pressing the tapers Emergency Stop button causes a taper error message to be displayed on the control panel. The operator then has the option of aborting the job run, or making any necessary adjustments and then selecting the option to continue the run.

Motors
The motors for the swing arm and tape drive are phase motors. The motor driving the swing arm is inside the cylinder box (Figure 2-7).

CAUTION: Do not use adhesive tape on the carrier tape, as it contains static electricity and can ruin the static-free condition of the carrier tape. 9. Feed the sealing tape under the guide block assembly. Advance the tape until approximately five inches of sealing tape extends past the sealing heads. The sealing tape should now be in between the inner set of grooves on the guide block.

Adjusting Heat Seal Heads


Two adjustments may need to be done for a pair of heat seal heads: lateral alignment and downward pressure. Correct lateral alignment assures that the seal heads are on the sealing edges of the tape; correct pressure balances the degree of heat needed to seal without tape damage.

Adjusting Lateral Position


If your Model 1010 taper is equipped with heat seal heads, use this procedure to align the lateral position of each head separately. To align lateral position of heat seal heads: 1. Make sure the heaters are off and the thermal heads are cool. There are two

Set the bottom line to 0 degrees (see "Setting Temperature for Heat Seal Heads" on page 3-19 for instructions), and wait until the sealing head is at ambient room temperature. 2. Remove the seal head closest to you (the front seal head). Use a #10 size hex wrench and remove the seal head adjustment screw. Remove the seal head and lay it aside. 3. Loosen the adjustment screw on the back seal head. Adjust the head laterally so that it is directly over the back edge of the sealing tape. 4. Manually engage the back seal head and confirm that the edge of the seal head is aligned with the back of the sealing tape. Make sure that the track holes on the carrier tape are not blocked by the sealing tape. 5. With the seal head engaged, tighten the adjustment screw. 6. Repeat this process with the front sealing head. Adjustment screw

Present Value temperature

Set Value temperature


Figure 3-26: Heater Controller Display

In Figure 3-26, the back heat seal head has been set to 350 degrees, and the current temperature is 347 degrees. When the seal head is heating, the green LED light to the left of the Set Value display is on. When the present temperature is stable, the orange LED light to the left of the Present Value display is on. A general guideline may be to use somewhere around 275 to 325 degrees Fahrenheit (or 135 to 165 degrees Celsius) for a heat seal. If in doubt, it is better to start with a lower temperature and test the result, then increase little by little as needed. A narrow carrier tape takes a lower temperature to prevent burning. NOTE: It should not take more than 2-3 minutes to heat the seal heads to the Set Value. If it takes longer, the Set Value may be too high. To set the temperature: This example changes the set temperature from 0 degrees to 275 degrees. 1. Press the SET button on the lower left of the temperature control display (Figure 3-27). > The lower display blinks rapidly, indicating it is ready to be set.

Understanding the Gap


A few term definitions are in order before you set the tape pocket gap. The gap is the distance, or pitch, between the leading edge of adjacent tape pockets. This distance is found automatically by the gap sensor when you press <ENTER> to select "SET GAP ? YES". The gap offset, or offset, is the additional distance, measured in tape drive motor steps, the tape must advance after the gap sensor has found the leading edge of a tape pocket until the center of a tape pocket is directly under the center of the swing arms pickup head. This is a one-time-only advancement of the tape at the beginning of each run. This distance you must set manually for each tape. The gap steps is the distance, measured in tape drive motor steps, between the leading edge of adjacent tape pockets. Gap Offset

Figure 3-39: Gap Versus Offset

The gap steps value must always be higher than the offset value.

The settings for the setup type selected are displayed. Then the taper returns to the previous mode. <5> key = "TAKE UP MOTOR ON"This turns on the takeup motor until one of 3 things happens: (1) the takeup arm is raised by the tautness of the tape, or (2) you gently lift the takeup arm to turn the motor off, or (3) the time limit in number of seconds is reached. If the motor turns for the full time specified without the takeup arm being raised, the message "TAKE UP REEL ERR" is displayed. At this point you can press either of two keys: <ENTER> key = Press to rotate reel again. <CLEAR> key = Press to return to Manual mode. <6> key = "POCKETS = ######"The drive motor advances by one pocket and activates seal heads; the count of pockets increments by one. However, the swing arm is not activated to get a device from the pickup site. Because it does not attempt to place a device in a pocket, this feature allows the operator to either (1) check the location and quality of the seal, or (2) place devices in the tape manually without running them through the handler. <8> key = "SET GAP ? NO" <ENTER> key = Press to display current settings. The display reads "GAP STEPS = ####", then "OFFSET = ####", then "SWING HOME = ##", then "SWING STEP = ###". Each pound sign (#) is replaced by a digit. <SET UP> key = "SET GAP ? YES"This proposes to re-find the gap between tape pockets. <ENTER> key = Press to advance the tape and set the gap. The display reads "JOG LEFT", then "GAP STEPS = ####, then "OFFSET = ####", and stops at "SET OFFSET= ####". NOTE: If you get the message "NO POCKET? ERROR", it means it cant find the gap. Press down lightly on the tape.

Changing RAM

Selecting Manual Cycling

Changing RAM
The Model 1050 system allows you to change the RAM of each taper CPU. You can do this in one of three ways: You can change individual address values, or settings. You can reload all the default settings from the EPROM. This will erase any changes that have been made to individual addresses. You can reload all the default settings from the EPROM, and then change individual address settings. NOTE: If you consistently use a RAM address setting that is different from the default in the EPROM, write down your changes and fax them to Exatron, and we will send you, free of charge, a new EPROM containing the default settings you use. This will help you avoid unnecessary future changes and confusion over lost changes. When you press the <SET UP> key, you have several options, as shown in Figure 3-38. To access the Change RAM mode and change RAM settings: 1. Press the <SET UP> key on the tapers control panel. The message "CHANGE RAM? NO" is displayed. 2. Press the <SET UP> key again. The message "CHANGE RAM? YES" is displayed. 3. Press <ENTER>. > The message "LOAD DEFAULT NO" is displayed. 4. If you want the taper to load the default settings for all the RAM addresses into RAM, press <SET UP> to display "LOAD DEFAULT YES", and then press <ENTER> to load the defaults while the message "LOAD EPROM>RAM" is displayed; or If you want the taper to leave all RAM addresses as they were, press <ENTER> to accept "LOAD DEFAULT NO". In either case, the first RAM address listing is now displayed, allowing you to make changes to individual RAM addresses. 5. Press the <SET UP> key or the <TOTALS> key to scroll through the firmware addresses: > Each time you press the <SET UP> key, the next address is displayed, as from 0090 to 0091.

When you reach the firmware address desired, press one of the following keys to change the parameter for the currently displayed address. > <RUN> key = Toggles between a display of the data address and value and a display of the address label. For example, when the data address display is 0094 Data 0C, pressing <RUN> displays the corresponding BAUD RATE RS-232. Pressing <RUN> again returns to 0094 Data 0C. > <SPACE> key = Increments the upper data nibble (the left digit in the setting at the right end of the displayed address) in the current address. For example, if the current setting is "EF", press the <SPACE> key to change the setting to "FF". > <DELETE> key = Increments the lower data nibble (the right digit in the setting at the right end of the displayed address) in the current address. For example, if the current setting is "04", press the <DELETE> key to change the setting to "05". > <-> minus key = Sets the parameter for the current address to FF. > <0> zero key = Sets the parameter for the current address to 00. > <CLEAR> key = Loads the default parameter for the current address from the EPROM into the RAM. 7. To exit the Change RAM mode, press the <ENTER> key. The message "RESET TOTALS NO" is displayed. > If you wish to reset the current output tally for all tubes to zero, press the <SET UP> key. The message "TOTALS SET TO 0" is displayed. > If not, press <ENTER> again to return to the previous mode. NOTE: Any changes you made take effect immediately.

Notes About the RAM Address Listing

Warning About Motor Speeds (00C0-00CF)

Warning About Motor Speeds (00C0-00CF)


CAUTION: Only an engineer experienced with motor speeds should adjust any motor speeds. If unwise changes are made, damage to the machine could result. The step rate (00C0-00C2 and 00C8-00CA) is the constant cruising speed. The starting rate (00C3-00C4 and 00CB-00CC) is the speed on startup, at the beginning of movement. The acceleration slope rate (00C5-00C7 and 00CD-00CF) is the length of time it takes the motor to reach cruising speed.

Updating Your EPROM


Write down all changes you make in your RAM address listing. Permanent selections should be programmed into the EPROM. You can then fax your updated RAM listing to Exatron, and we will program a new EPROM for you, free. The benefit of having your customized changes in the EPROM is that when it is necessary to blast the RAM back to the factory default, you will not lose your changes.

Separate Settings for Changeover Kits


Notice that settings for the gap steps, offset, swing home, and swing steps are repeated three times, at 00D9-00E5, 00E6-00F2, and 00F3-00FF. This enables you to save separate settings for three changeover kits without extensive recalibration each time the kit is changed.

Suggested Values for Various Taper Models


A few addresses in the listing should have different default values according to the taper used. These values are repeated in the following table.

Chapter Overview
This chapter describes the operation of the handler's extensive built-in diagnostics. These diagnostics allow every sensor, solenoid, switch, motor, and I/O Port in the handler to be individually tested. Use these checks to troubleshoot any problem the taper may have. This chapter discusses the following main topics:

Chapter 4: Diagnostics

Accessing DIAGNOSTICS Mode


Although no tools are required, an EXATRON LED checker, part #3000-052, (small blue plastic box) will be helpful in troubleshooting broken sensor/LED pairs and for testing the handler control port. To access Diagnostics mode, press the <DIAGNOSTICS> key on the taper's control panel. If the password security is turned on, the display reads "PASSWORD ABC ?" Enter a 3-digit password using the numeric keys. The factory-set password is 123, or <1> <2> <3>. The display reads: "DIAGNOSTICS." You can access Diagnostics mode whenever the handler powers up, is in Run mode, or is in Manual mode.

Figure 4-1: Control Panel

You can also enter Diagnostics mode during most device jam-clearing cycles, when the output tube cover LEDs are flashing. If using Diagnostics during a jam, the handler will exit its automatic jam clearing cycle and then return to its previous place in the program, upon exiting Diagnostics. In most cases, if the jam is cleared during Diagnostics, the handler will also automatically restart after returning from Diagnostics. An abbreviated flowchart showing the main Diagnostics functions is shown on page 4-3. The "Diagnostics Quick Reference" showing all the functions begins on page 4-4, and detailed explanations of the major ones are in the sections following the quick reference.

Chapter 4: Diagnostics

Setting Up HyperTerminal for 5000 Handler


After you have ascertained that communication on the 1050 side is functioning, you can hook up the PC or laptop to the 5000 handler and set up HyperTerminal in MS Windows as a way of testing communication to the handler. Each message is in uppercase ASCII characters, followed by a carriage return. This ensures that the incoming port and connections on the 5000 are functioning normally. After you have set up HyperTerminal as described in the previous section, use the PC keyboard to enter numeric commands to the handler. The handler should carry out the commands the same as if you had entered them on the handlers control panel. If the commands for both handler and taper work correctly, but you are still experiencing a communication problem, you know it must be in the cable itself. Replace the cable.

Model 1050 Handler Status and Error Messages


Messages that are displayed on the control panel are alphabetically listed below. Symbols and numbers appear first. Each entry in this section explains why the message is displayed and, when necessary, how to resolve the condition. If further explanation is required, the operator is referred to the appropriate section elsewhere in this manual for details. We are constantly adding messages to the handler's operating code. If a message you need is not listed here, please contact Exatron's Customer Service Department for prompt assistance. For free updates to the firmware, please contact the Exatron Sales Department.

#### OLDNEW ####


The handler is using the PROGRAM RS-232 interface. The handler has asked the programmer for a sum check which is displayed following the word NEW, and compared it to the sum check stored in the handler's RAM which is displayed in front of the word OLD. These two sum checks do not match. A sum check is the total of the parameter values for all the RAM addresses displayed in hex, for example: 2EFG. If this is the start of a new job, it is normal for the two sum checks to not match. In this case, if you are sure the new sum check (displayed following the word NEW) is correct, press the <ENTER> key. If the handler is in the middle of a job, and this message appears, check your programmer very thoroughly. Also check whether the handler is making good electrical contact with the programmer. If the above suggestions do not apply, the programmer's RAM may be corrupted. Stop the job. Reload all information and begin again.

THANK YOU

THANK YOU
One or more identifier numbers or characters are displayed following the words THANK YOU. The handler is exiting a jam routine correctly. The handler will resume operation at the end of the two-second THANK YOU delay. If your handler is displaying excessive THANK YOU messages, contact Exatron and report the number displayed with the THANK YOU message. This number indicates what part of the program the handler was in just prior to displaying THANK YOU.

THERMAL OR PSA ?
Select the type of seal tape to apply to the carrier tape. Press the <1> key to "USE THERMAL TAPE" or press <2> to "USE PSA TAPE."

TRANSFER ERROR
The PC is attempting to send remote RAM data to the handler, but there has been a data transfer error. Turn the handler OFF, then ON and try again.

TURN ON REMOTE
The handler is using the PROGRAM RS-232 interface. The handler is attempting to communicate with the programmer and cannot obtain a correct answer. Verify all of the following: The programmer is turned on. The RS-232 cable is connected from the handler's RS-232 port directly to the programmer's RS-232 port (labeled "Handler" on Autosites). This interface does not use the PC, except as a terminal to set up the programmer at the start of a job. The programmer is in "Computer Remote Control." The programmer's baud rate is set to 9600. The programmer's port setup is: 1 stop, 8 bits, no parity.

UART OUT ERROR


The handler's UART has detected an error. Turn the handler OFF, then ON and try again. If the problem continues, replace the handler's CPU PCB.

UPSIDE DOWN ERR ?


The sensor has detected a device that is upside down in the tape pocket; i.e., dead bug when it should be live bug.

Chapter 6: Servicing and Troubleshooting


Chapter Overview
This chapter discusses the following maintenance tasks and their frequency: Task Seal Head Maintenance Air Regulator Maintenance Checking Air Regulator Shutoff Valve Adjusting Air Pressure on the Regulator Checking the Moisture/Dirt Trap in the Air Regulator Solenoid Maintenance Fiberoptic Photoelectric Sensor Guidelines Recommended Frequency As needed As needed Monthly As needed Weekly As needed As needed Page 6-1 6-3 6-3 6-4 6-4 6-7 6-8

Preventive maintenance on the Model 1050 is fairly simple. Following this schedule will help to assure your Model 1050 handler will continue to perform properly. CAUTION: Do not lubricate any lead screws! Lubricating the screws will void the warranty. CAUTION: Do not use any cleaners or solvents on any bearings or lead screws! CAUTION: Always power off the system before disconnecting any cables or doing any maintenance.

Seal Head Maintenance


If one of a pair of thermal seal heads is heating but the other is not, it is likely because it has become slightly unplugged. You may get wildly erratic readings or a display of all zeros (0000). Make sure each seal head is firmly plugged in. The front seal head is color-coded red; the back seal head is color-coded blue. Residue from the carrier tape and sealing tape gradually builds up on the sealing heads, whether you use thermal or PSA (pressure-sensitive) heads. In time, this residue prevents a good tape seal. So when you notice any lowered quality of tape seal, clean the heads.

Chapter 6: Servicing and Troubleshooting

Pressure-Sensitive Heads
If the PSA rollers on your taper are brass (Figure 6-1, left), you can clean them with alcohol. Apply alcohol to a Q-tip and rub the Q-tip around the PSA rollers until the edges are shiny. However, if the PSA rollers on your taper are rubber (Figure 6-1, right), do not use alcohol or other cleaning fluids on them. Just replace them with new ones.

Figure 6-1: Brass PSA Rollers (Left); Rubber PSA Rollers (Right)

Heat Seal Heads


Disassemble the blades and clean them with very fine (320) sandpaper. First rub the blade edge on the flat sandpaper in the direction of the blade ends. When the edge is shiny, lay the blade flat on the sandpaper and rub it till each side is shiny, as well.

Air Regulator Maintenance

Checking Air Regulator Shutoff Valve

Air Regulator Maintenance


Your taper uses compressed air to lower the seal heads. This requires an air regulator. A high quality air regulator with air filter and shutoff valve is supplied on your taper. CAUTION: Never operate any Exatron equipment that requires compressed air without an approved air regulator and shutoff valve. The air regulator assembly includes an oil/water particulate trap which should be visually inspected on occasion. This regulator should be set at factory air pressure of 50 PSI.

Checking Air Regulator Shutoff Valve


Check the operation of the shutoff valve once a month. To check the operation of the shutoff valve: 1. Turn the valve OFF and verify that the air is indeed off. Turn the valve back ON. 2. Check the PSI setting. > Set the air regulator to 50 PSI. Adjustment valve On/off switch in OFF position On/off switch in ON position

Chapter 6: Servicing and Troubleshooting

If the air regulator is turned off, turn it on by turning the on/off knob one quarter-turn counterclockwise. You can leave this knob turned on except when you are checking its operation.

Adjusting Air Pressure on the Regulator


You can increase air pressure at the air regulator. To adjust the air pressure: 1. Pull up on the adjustment valve (the black knob above the display), and turn it. > Turn it clockwise to increase the pressure. > Turn it counterclockwise to decrease the pressure. 2. Push the knob back down to lock it when you have finished the adjustment.

Checking the Moisture/Dirt Trap in the Air Regulator


Check the moisture/dirt trap on the air regulator and the filter chamber. Verify that they are clean, empty and dry. There should be no oil and no water in either chamber. If they are dirty, physically disconnect the incoming air pressure supply from the air regulator and clean the trap and filter as needed. Excessive moisture and or particulate buildup in the filter traps suggest the air supply to the system is too wet and/or dirty. CAUTION: Excessive moisture in the system can damage the air valves. Various models of air regulators differ. Here is one procedure. To check or replace the air filter: 1. Unscrew the small black screw at the bottom of the filter chamber and remove. If water is present, there is water in the air lines and you have a problem that you must correct.

Solenoid Maintenance

Checking the Moisture/Dirt Trap in the Air Regulator

Solenoid Maintenance
CAUTION: NEVER use oil or lubricant of any kind on solenoids.

Figure 6-8: Solenoid with Plunger on Back Side of Taper

Keep the solenoids as clean as possible. If the taper is used with devices that have excessive mold flash, the solenoids will require cleaning regularly. The frequency is dependent upon how much mold flash gets into the solenoids. When cleaning solenoids, do not put excessive stress on solenoid wiring. Check all wiring for signs of wear, exposed conditions, or broken connections. Replace as needed with identical type of wire: standard or flex, same gauge, insulation, color, etc. When cleaning solenoids, check the plungers to be sure there are no burrs of any kind on their shafts. Solenoid life is proportional to the handler environment and how often the solenoids are cleaned. We recommend that all solenoids be replaced every two million cycles as part of a good preventive maintenance program. Replace any bent or damaged solenoid return springs with new parts from the Exatron factory. Refer to the hardware specifications in the Parts List for the part numbers of all solenoids and springs in your handler.

Fiberoptic Photoelectric Sensor Guidelines


Clean dust off the sensor optics with a very low blast of air. Each sensor on your handler is connected to a sensor controller, which displays whether the sensor is "seeing" any object. Most fiberoptic sensor controllers are set to L-ON (light on) by Exatron. This causes the output transistor to turn on when light is received by the sensor.

Figure 6-9: Sensor Controller Set to L-ON

Figure 6-10: Green and Red Indicator Lights

The green light is the Stable Operation Indicator. When the sensor is operating normally under stable conditions, the green light should be ON.

Fiberoptic Photoelectric Sensor Guidelines

Checking the Moisture/Dirt Trap in the Air Regulator

The red light is the Light Reception Indicator. When the sensor is receiving light, the red light should be ON.

Figure 6-11: Conditions of Indicator Lights

For both types of sensor (through-beam and reflective), the red light on means nothing is there; nothing is blocking or reflecting the sensor beam. If the red light is off, something is there, interfering with the sensor beam. For information on fine-tuning the fiberoptic photoelectric sensor and controller, see the vendors manual.

This chapter contains the following main sections:

Topic Guide to the Parts List Lists of Parts

Page 7-1 7-4

Spare parts can be obtained from Exatron. It has always been Exatron policy to support all the equipment we have ever manufactured. If the part is still available, or can be made, we will get it for you. In most cases, faxed requests and shipment of replacement parts orders are processed within twenty-four hours of receipt by Exatron. Each parts list is specific to each machine, so the parts list is included in the manual that is shipped with each custom Exatron handler.

Guide to the Parts List


This guide shows how to use the parts list to determine the exact part number of any custom part in your machine in order to replace it if necessary. The parts list contains those items which Exatron has custom manufactured. They include machined parts, sheet metal, printed circuit boards, cables, and standard vendor parts which have been modified by Exatron. A limited number of standard vendor parts are also listed here. The title at the top of the list indicates the type of parts list. This should match your system's hardware. The parts list may change as Exatron improves each model with each new generation. If you have different generations of the same model, the parts list will vary. Whenever possible, Exatron makes design improvements capable of being retrofitted to older versions of the same model. The date on the parts list indicates the date of the last revision of the list, not necessarily the last revision of the system hardware. An explanation of the column categories in the parts list follows.

Model 1050 Manual

Chapter 7: Parts List

Exatron (Part Number)


The first column contains the number assigned by Exatron to a specific part; for example, 8000-D14 or PET-R44. The part number usually has two sections or number/letter sets. The first set of alphanumeric characters (e.g. 1900, 8000, PET, TAPE) indicates the model number of the system for which the part was originally designed. We use designs of parts from different models to lower inventory costs and to speed the design of custom handlers. The next three alphanumeric characters (e.g. 906, C06, P14) are simply the numerical count of the part as it was designed. These are the three characters that are stamped or laser marked onto most machined parts. Exatron occasionally uses additional letters or numbers to indicate special features. We use R and L to specify right and left hand parts. AM or HR will indicate parts for Ambient Machines or Hot Rails. We use 62 or 75 to indicate specific sizes of solenoid plungers. There are other special notations that may be used as part of our numbering system and that may change with time. Please contact the Exatron factory for assistance with any questions regarding special letters or numbers attached to part numbers.

Part Quantity Columns


The next two or three columns indicate the quantity of the specific part used in the manufacture of this system. This information may be useful in determining the correct part number and was used to build an assembly kit when your system was originally built.

Manual
Each row that has a 1 in this column has a corresponding wiring print in this manual. The print is identified by the part number.

Description
This is the name assigned to the part. In most cases, this description will clearly designate the part you wish to locate. Please include this description when ordering replacement parts.

Assembly
This column indicates which major system sub-assembly the part belongs to. In most cases, the "Assembly" can be ordered as a complete replacement part.

Size
These are dimensions in inches. The dimesions are listed left to right from smallest to largest: A x B x C. This is the starting size of the part prior to being machined.

Figure 7-1: Dimensions Listed From Smallest to Largest

Imagine a cube drawn around a part you are trying to identify. The dimensions of this cube can be checked against this size dimension and may be of assistance in determining a required part number. When the parts list indicates another Exatron part number in the size column, then the part was made by modifying an existing Exatron part. The modification is required for this handler only. When ordering replacement parts, be sure to use the part number and not the size. If the size column contains SEE PRINT, then the part is made from sheet metal or a PC board, or is something which is not made from a solid cube of material.

Finish
This column designates the finish used on the part. The following list is in alphabetic order. ALODINE: A non-anodic protective coating, a microscopic thin film commonly prescribed on aluminum to provide increased corrosion resistance and impose desired electrical resistance characteristics. BLACK: Black anodizing. BLUE: Blue anodizing. CLEAR: Clear anodizing, silver in color. HCR: Non-conductive, hard finish, dark green in color. NEDOX: Conductive, hard finish, silver in color, that eliminates static build-up and provides good electrical conductivity. Aluminum parts coated with nedox exhibit the hardness of steel without the weight. The finish protects against abrasive wear and corrosion. The dry-lubricated, non-stick surface also reduces friction of moving or sliding parts. NICKEL: Bright nickel plating, silver-chrome in color. NONE: No finish, natural material. PAINT: Painted part; colors may be beige, black or blue. RED: Red anodizing.
