Coolant Level Float Installation

1

Push [POWER OFF].

For a tank lid with dimples [4]:

  • Put the float [5] from the coolant float assembly [A] into the tank.
  • Align the housing dimples [3] with the dimples on the tank lid [4].
  • Push the housing [1] down onto the side of the tank.
  • Put the cable [2] from the assembly to the coolant electrical connection panel.

For a tank lid with a cutout [8]:

  • Put the float [9] from coolant float assembly [A] into the tank.
  • Push the housing [6] down onto the cutout [8] of the tank lid.
  • Put the cable [7] from the assembly to the electrical connection panel.

Note: The location of the electrical connector panel changes with the machine type.

For a machine with a rear-panel M12 cable:

  • Connect the cable [1] from the assembly [A] to the rear-panel coolant sensor[C] (M12 cable).

For a machine with a rear-panel Amphenol cable or RJ-12 cable:

  1. Disconnect the rear-panel Amphenol cable (or RJ-12 cable) from P22 on the Maincon.
  2. Remove the rear-panel Amphenol cable (or RJ-12 cable) from the rear of the electrical connection panel.
  3. Put the o-ring [2] from the old M12 cable on the sensor cable [C] (M12 cable). 
  4. Place a WASHER [B] onto the sensor cable.
  5. Attach the sensor cable to the rear of the electrical connection panel. Use a washer [B] and the nut [3].
  6. Connect the sensor cable to P22 on the Maincon.
  7. Connect the cable [1] from the assembly [A] to the sensor cable.

Push [POWER ON].

Push [PARAMETER/DIAGNOSTICS] until the parameters show. Go to the SYSTEM tab.

Push [E-STOP].

If the Parameters are not correct, turn Setting 7 OFF.

Put the correct value into Parameter 603 and Parameter 604.

Make sure the values for Parameters 603 and 604 are correct.

Refer to the tables below for the correct values of parameters.

To make sure the coolant tank float operates correctly, do these steps:

  1. Push [MEMORY] on the pendant.

  2. The upper-right corner of the screen shows a coolant level arrow. When the float goes up, the arrow goes up [1]. When the float goes down, the arrow goes down [2].
