Chapter 3: The Rod Handling Device

3.1 Introduction
The PWM Rod Handler is a device that fits on the side of the Feed
Frame and is hydraulically driven. Its purpose is to retrieve or add rods
to the drill string from a safe position along the side of the Feed Frame,
regardless of the working angle, reducing the manual handling of drill
rods.

The physical effort and associated injuries encountered using


conventional manual handling are significantly reduced by automating
the rod handling process.

A 5-bank directional control valve controls the device via an electrical


Control Panel. The device is semi-automated, i.e. a PLC monitors
functions via sensors and only allows certain moves to be made if the
right conditions are met.

The PWM Rod Handler uses Pulse Width Modulation signals to control
the operational hydraulics.

Note: A standard LM Rod Handler (p/n 3000318) can be upgraded to


the PWM version by installing a retrofit kit (p/n 5304593).

3.2 Rod Handler Parts Identification


The PWM Rod Handler can be mounted on 700 and 1300 Series Feed
Frames fitted with 20 mm thick bottom runners by using the relevant
mounting kit. It is compatible with LM Power Packs fitted with an
optional hydraulic kit, and it can also be used on LM drills fitted with the
DCi Control System.

Hydraulic hoses connect the Power Pack and the Rod Handler. Each
hose has different sized ends.

●● Load Sense hose — 7/16” JIC


●● Roller Motor Drain hose — 9/16” JIC
●● Main Pump Pressure hose — 3/4” JIC
●● Tank return hose — 1-1/16”JIC.

When the Rod Handler is retro-fitted to a standard LM drill a separate


Control Panel is used.

If a DCi Control System is fitted, a single Control Panel can be used to


control both the Rod Handler and the LM drill.

A 10 pin 24V DC electrical cable (p/n 89182) connects the Starter


assembly on the LM Power Pack to the Power Pack socket on the
underside of the Rod Handler Control Panel.

Chapter 3: The Rod Handling Device
For early model LM starters fitted with a 6 pin connector and a Stop/
Start pendant, it will be necessary to update the starter with a kit (p/n
5305286), and a remote pendant (p/n 3003488) which includes an
Emergency Stop switch.

A 7-core electrical cable connects the Rod Handler Control Panel to the
Rod Handler Carriage. This cable supplies power to the DCV solenoids
and sensors.

A Laser Perimeter Beam protects the operators from the equipment


without hindering access. It uses cable p/n 89182, and the Rod Handler
joysticks deactivate when the beam is triggered.

The PWM Rod Handler can handle BQ, NQ, HQ and PQ size rods and
outer tubes. Its other capabilities include:

Chapter 3: The Rod Handling Device
●● Angle range: –90° to 0° is the standard program setting for the
PWM Rod Handler. A setting sequence can be changed so that it
can also be used between 0° and +90° (See “22. GRIPPER OPEN
(Up Hole Mode” in Section 3.3).
A work platform may be necessary on up holes, due to the
mounting location of the Rod Handler off the front of the Feed
Frame. This will depend on the site set up and the hole angle being
drilled.
If power is lost to the drill, the PLC reverts back to the down hole
program.
●● Average time to load / unload on a steep down hole including rod
tripping on 1300 Feed Frame with HQ rods: 36–40 seconds each.
(This is with a 2-man operation.)
●● Shallow angle holes: Less time is taken per trip as the Head Tilt
and Traverse functions do not need to be used as much.

3.2.1 Rod Handler Mounts


The Rod Handler mounts off the side of the Feed Frame chassis using
front and rear mounting brackets:

●● A wider than standard face plate (p/n 3001445) is supplied as part


of the mounting kit to attach the rig to the face.
●● Slide rails (2 standard HQ rods) fit between the front and rear
mounts. These are used to support the Carriage assembly, and
allow it to slide along the side of the Feed Frame.
●● A traverse cylinder is used to move the Carriage along the slide
rails.

3.2.2 Rod Handler Controls


A solenoid operated Directional Control Valve assembly is attached to
the Carriage. This DCV is used to control all the hydraulic motion of the
device. The DCV has pressure test points fitted to each section and
requires a supply of oil from the Power Pack.

A Swing Arm is also mounted off the Carriage assembly to position the
rods in behind the Rotation Unit. It is moved by the swing arm rotary
actuator.

The Swing Arm supports the Head assembly, and can tilt through 90
degrees down, or 90 degrees up, depending on the set up. This tilt
function is moved by the tilt actuator.

A support arm, i.e. part of the head assembly, supports the rod being
handled.

Chapter 3: The Rod Handling Device
Guide plates to suit individual rod sizes are fitted to the front and rear
guide assemblies to help line up the rod being handled with the rod
string.

The rod is held in the head assembly by a pair of grippers that house
some rollers to rotate the rod to aid the making and breaking of thread
joints.

Chapter 3: The Rod Handling Device
1. PWM Rod Handler EMERGENCY STOP

Push the switch down to activate the Emergency Stop; pull it up to


reset.
This switch stops ALL controls, and if a pilot is connected it will also
drop out the Main Breaker.
2. PWM Rod Handler PULL ON / PUSH OFF

Push the switch down to disable joysticks, pull it up to activate


them.
If the Rod Handler ON / OFF button is pulled up, power becomes
available to the DCV solenoids and to the light mounted on the Rod
Handler Carriage. The JOYSTICKS ACTIVE light on the Control
Panel also illuminates.
This On/Off button is also used to reset a fault when a fault code
appears on the system fault light. To reset, push the button down,
pull it up to reactivate.
The lights at the top of the Control Panel are arranged in two
sections:
○○ SYSTEM lights show conditions that the Handler and PLC
require to operate.
○○ SENSOR lights indicate a signal is being received from the
relevant sensor as in input to the PLC, and outputs from the PLC
illuminate these individual lights.
3. POWER light

This Red light indicates power is reaching Control Panel from the
source (i.e. the Power Pack). This light gets its power from the 24V
supply.
4. JOYSTICKS ACTIVE light

This Green light indicates the Pull ON / Push OFF button has been
pulled up and the joysticks are active. This light gets its power from
main supply after going through a relay.

Note: Be aware of this situation at all times, especially when fault


finding.

The following twelve lights get their power from outputs on the PLC,
and will only illuminate if the PLC is receiving a signal from the
relevant sensor.
5. LOAD / UNLOAD light

This light illuminates when the Swing Arm is out and the Head
is horizontal. It indicates that both the required inputs have been
registered at the PLC, allowing the grippers to open or close for
loading or unloading rods safely.
6. CLAMP CLOSED light

This light indicates the CLAMP OPEN/CLOSE button has been


pressed to close the grippers.

Chapter 3: The Rod Handling Device
7. PERIMETER CLEAR light

This light indicates the status of the latching perimeter clear signal
within the controller. The light will be ON when the perimeter beam
is in the ‘healthy’ state. The joysticks will not function when this light
is OFF.
8. FAULT / BUTTON PRESSED light

This light is a visual indication that any of the piezo switches


located on top of the two joysticks have been pressed. It is also
used to fault find the electrical circuits using a flash code sequence
(for more information refer to Chapter 7 of this Manual).
9. ARM OUT light

This light indicates the Swing Arm is in the LOAD / UNLOAD


position along the side of the Feed Frame — one of two conditions
that must be met before the PLC will allow the grippers to open in
the LOAD/UNLOAD area.
10. HORIZONTAL light

This light indicates the Head assembly is horizontal (as monitored


by the Arm Horizontal sensor mounted on the tilt switch bracket) —
the second of two conditions that must be met before the PLC will
allow the grippers to open in the LOAD/UNLOAD area.
11. ROD FRONT light

This light indicates a rod has been sensed loaded forward of the
grippers in the Head assembly.
12. ROD REAR light

This light indicates a rod has been sensed loaded rearward of the
grippers in the Head assembly.
13. ARM IN light

This light indicates the Swing Arm is in the MAKE/BREAK position


behind the Rotation Unit — one of two conditions that must be met
before the grippers will open in the MAKE / BREAK area.
14. SLEW light

This light indicates the Head is near to parallel with the Feed
Frame. The Swing arm will only operate if the slew sensor is
activated and this light is illuminated. This has been incorporated
as an additional safety feature when working on on steep holes.
15. GRIPPER PRESSURE light

This light indicates the grippers have closed and the pressure
switch is activated when the preset pressure has been achieved.

Chapter 3: The Rod Handling Device
16. ARM CLEAR light

This light indicates the Swing Arm is in the Arm Clear zone, away
from the drill feed frame. This zone begins when the Swing Arm
is approximately vertical (45 degrees away from the drill) and
continues through to the Arm Out position. This condition must be
active to enable Drill Control Panel hydraulic pilot pressure via the
Pilot Dump function.
17. STROBE light

High voltage shock hazard! — Wait 6 minutes after removing power


from the light before removing dome to replace the strobe.

This light indicates the laser beam has been broken, or the bridging
plug is not fitted. The joysticks will not function when it is flashing.
18. LEFT joystick

When in operation;
○○ Move left to lower the front guide assembly, right to raise the
front guide assembly when the Swing Arm is in LOAD/UNLOAD
position.
○○ Move up to rotate the rollers to make a rod joint at the rod string
and down to undo (break) the rod joint. Note the rollers are used
to clear the pin thread from the box thread at a faster rate than
the Breakout Device.
○○ The Carriage light flashes when the left joystick is moved in any
direction away from the neutral position.
19. JOINT OK buttons

Both piezo buttons on the left joystick act as “Joint OK” switches
when they are depressed.
When Rod Feeding, press either Joint OK button when the joint is
made up to allow the grippers to open and Swing Arm to come out.
The FAULT / BUTTON PRESSED light will illuminate when either
button is pressed.
When Rod Pulling, press either Joint OK button when the grippers
are closed and the joint is fully undone and clear of rod string
to allow the Swing Arm to come out. The FAULT / BUTTON
PRESSED light will illuminate when either button is pressed.
20. RIGHT joystick

When in operation:
○○ Move left to traverse the carriage assembly towards the front
(i.e. Rod Holder end) of the Feed Frame, and right to traverse
the carriage assembly towards the rear (i.e. sheave end) of the
Feed Frame.

○○ Move up to move the Swing Arm in behind the Rotation Unit,
down to move the Swing Arm out from behind the Rotation Unit.
○○ The Carriage light flashes when the right joystick is moved in any
direction away from the neutral position.
21. CLAMP OPEN/CLOSE buttons

Both piezo buttons on the right joystick also act as a switches when
pressed. They open and close the Grippers. The FAULT / BUTTON
PRESSED light will illuminate when either button is pressed.
22. PRESS WHEN LOAD/UNLOAD AREA IS CLEAR button

For personnel safety, the operator should always check the work
area is clear before pressing this button to reactivate the joysticks.

This button reactivates the joysticks after the laser beam has been
broken, as indicated by the Flashing Amber strobe light on the
Control Panel.
23. ROD PULLING / ROD FEEDING selector

This switch selects the mode of operation. It provides an input


to the PLC program, which in turn will only allow certain gripper
functions to occur, depending on the mode selected:
○○ ROD FEEDING must be selected when rods are being added to
the rod string,
○○ ROD PULLING must be selected when removing rods from the
string.

Note: A Rotation Unit breakout device is still required to break the


joint when pulling rods.

GRIPPER OPEN (Up Hole Mode)

 Note: This control mechanism is not shown on the illustration.

This facility overrides the horizontal safety switch to allow the grippers to
open when in a Vertical Up position.

To activate:

●● Switch the Rod Handler ON/OFF selector to OFF, and touch either
of the left hand piezo buttons five (5) times.
●● Switch the Rod Handler ON/OFF selector to ON, and the grippers
will now open.
●● The horizontal light will flash continually in this mode.

Deactivation is the reverse of the above procedure.

Chapter 4: Rod Handler Set Up

4.1 Positioner Assembly Mounting


Before fitting a PWM Rod Handler to an existing drill, it may be necessary
to shorten the cradle pivot bars, and fit a Power Pack hydraulics kit.

The standard Rod Handler mounting kits suit Feed Frame chassis with
20mm thick bottom runners. (Earlier Feed Frames had 12mm thick
runners, so this should be checked before proceeding any further.)

The Rod Handler Mounting Kits for the 700 and 1300 Series Feed Frames
are the same, with the exception of the rear mounting bracket.

Only attempt to fit the Rod Handler to the Feed Frame in a horizontal
position. The Feed Frame should also be fitted to a Positioner for
stability.

4.1.1 Mounting Procedure


1. Shorten the pivot bars on the cradle to clear Rod Handler carriage
slide rails. (Refer to Figure 4-1 below.) This can be done using a
circular saw or oxyacetylene kit in a safe place.

Shorten pivot bars if necessary

Positioner cradle

Figure 4–1: Positioner cradle

2. The front mount for the Rod Handler fits between the front plate of
the Feed Frame and the face plate. (Refer to Figure 4-2, overleaf).)

3. The rear mount attaches to the Feed Frame chassis bottom slide
rails with two clamp plates. Set this up so the distance between the

Chapter 4: Rod Handler Set Up
mounting surfaces on the front and rear mounting plates is approx.
3040 mm.

Leave the bracket slightly loose so it can be positioned when the


handler is being mounted.
4. The front slide adaptor subs can be fitted on rear side of front
mounting plate so the 1300 Feed Frame can slide along the cradle
a little further.

If required, do this before fitting the Rod Handler to the mounting


plates.
5. Using the two lift points on the carriage (as shown in Figure 4-2),
the Rod Handler should hang near to vertical once lifted clear of the
transport pallet. Lift it into position and attach to the front mount.

Fit the large square washers on the side of the mount with the slots.
Slide the rear bracket back until it touches the Rod Handler and
bolt together. Fit the large square washers and spring washers
under the bolt heads.
Tighten all mounting bolts, keeping in mind the line up of the Rod
Handler with the drill string is to be done once the rig is powered
up.
6. Fit the face plate. It is wider than the standard face plate so an air
leg can be used to bolt the rig to the ground.

7. The Feed Frame and Rod Handler can now be positioned over the
hole. Note the swing clearance that is required to operate the Rod
Handler.

8. Rock bolt the positioner to the ground. Once the positioner is set up
over the drill hole, the front hole in the positioner base next to the
Rod Handler mount is hard to get to. Use alternatives if necessary.

9. If possible, set up the Control Panel in a safe position near the


front corner of the Feed Frame to enable clear visibility of the Rod
String, the Rod Handler, and the Driller’s Assistant at all times.

4.2 Pre Start Checks


All Rod Handlers have been fully tested before they leave the factory.

The following additional checks are intended to:

●● assist in setting up the Rod Handler, and


●● ensure the factory settings of the hydraulic components are correct,
and that all hoses are properly connected and purged.

Importantly, they also enable operators to become familiar with the


operation of this equipment.

4.6 Arm Horizontal Sensor (Inclinometer) Set Up

T2 T1

Out1 Out2 Power

Figure 4–8: Arm Horizontal sensor

For the Swing Arm to be in the LOAD/UNLOAD area alongside the


Feed Frame and for the grippers to be opened during Rod Handling,
the HORIZONTAL light on the Control Panel must be illuminated. This
indicates the Head Assembly is positioned within +/- 5 degrees of
horizontal.

Therefore, after replacing any of the Head assembly components, it may


be necessary to set the inclinometer to again consistently recognise
the Arm Horizontal position. To do this it is necessary to “teach”
the inclinometer to recognise the 5 degree deflection limit (for both
clockwise and anti-clockwise rotation when viewed from the front of the
Head Assembly):

1. Position the Head Assembly horizontally alongside the Feed


Frame.

2. Press button T1 on the Arm Horizontal sensor and hold for more
than 2 seconds. The Green Power LED and Yellow Out 2 LED
should not illuminate, and the Yellow Out 1 LED flashes.

3. Raise the end of the Head Assembly front guide assembly approx.
85 mm (equivalent to 5 degrees of clockwise rotation).

Figure 4–9:

4. Briefly press T1 and the Yellow Out 1 LED will illuminate for 1.5
seconds, confirming the clockwise switching point has been taught.

5. Lower the end of the Head Assembly front guard assembly approx.
170 mm, i.e. 85 mm to return to its original position and then
lower it a further 85 mm (equivalent to 5 degress of anti-clockwise
rotation).

6. Briefly press T1 once more and the Yellow Out 1 LED again
illuminates, confirming the anti-clockwise switching point has been
taught.

7. Return the Head Assembly to the horizontal position and the


HORIZONTAL light should illuminate, confirming the “teach”
session has been successful.

Figure 6–1: Rod Handler Parts

The Rod Handler consists of the following parts:

6.1.1 Front and rear mounts


The mounts are used to bolt the Rod Handler assembly to the mounting
kit fitted to the Feed Frame.

6.1.2 Traverse Cylinder


The traverse cylinder moves the Carriage and Head assemblies along
the side of the Feed Frame. It attaches to the front mount and is fitted
with an overcentre valve, used in the event of a hydraulic hose failure.

6.1.3 Carriage stop clamp


The carriage stop clamp is used when replacing the traverse cylinder if
the Rod Handler and Feed Frame are set up on an angle hole, and can’t
be placed into a horizontal position.

Chapter 6: Rod Handler Operations

6.1.4 Slide rails


The slide rails are a couple of HQ drill rods, which attach to the front and
rear mounts via adaptor subs.

6.1.5 Drill rod stop


The drill rod stop is fitted and used if the power fails and the Head
assembly is on an angle. It stops the potentially dangerous situation of
a drill rod sliding out of the grippers when the power is likely to be off for
an extended period of time.

6.1.6 Slide blocks and bushes


The slide blocks attach to the back of the carriage and are used to
support and guide the Carriage along the side of the Feed Frame. The
fitted bushes are replaceable.

Figure 6–2: Slide Bush Replacement Tool

6.2 Carriage Slide Bush Replacement


To replace the slide bearings, the above tool (or similar) must be made.
Only one half is used, and it can be made of brass or steel.

Chapter 6: Rod Handler Operations
The flange helps to extract the tool from the slide block once the old
bearing is pushed out.

This operation should be performed with the Rod Handler in a horizontal


position. The bushes are split in two for ease of removal and fitment.

Replace one split bush at a time, and don’t mix up the bush halves —
they are machined as pairs.

Slide block

Slide bearing

Figure 6–3: Slide Bearing components

6.2.1 Slide Bush Replacement Procedure


1. Turn OFF the Rod Handler and Power Pack.

2. Remove the keeper plates (4) from each side of one block.

3. Knock out one half of a bush at a time, using the tool described
above. Take care not to damage the sliding surface.

4. Liberally coat the new bush with lubricating oil and place one half of
a bush at a time into the block using the tool.

The oil will help with installation, and extend the life of the bush.
It may be easier to replace half of the bush with the Swing
Arm out and the other half with the Swing Arm in, i.e. by
transferring the weight off each bearing section.
5. Replace the keeper plates, and use an anti-seize compound on the
bolts.

6. Repeat this procedure for the other three blocks.

7. Lubricate each block with a general purpose grease using the


nipples provided.

Chapter 6: Rod Handler Operations

6.3.2 Swing Arm with hose bulkhead


The Swing Arm is a structure used to support the Head and Head Tilt
actuator. It incorporates a bulkhead for the hydraulic hoses that go
to the Head assembly. A lug is welded to this frame for the ARM IN
proximity sensor to pick up on.

6.3.3 Swing Arm mechanical stop


This mechanical stop is used to limit the travel inwards and align the rod
held in the Head assembly with the rod string.

6.3.4 Swing Arm actuator and overcentre valve


The Actuator mounts off an adaptor plate fitted to the frame. It rotates
through 180° to move the Swing Arm in behind the Rotation Unit from
its Home position at the side of the Feed Frame,and is fitted with
cushioning at both ends of its travel.

The actuator is fitted with an overcentre valve that mounts onto


the actuator with two banjo bolts, and has copper sealing washers
sandwiched between the two items.

Chapter 6: Rod Handler Operations

6.3.5 Swing Arm Cushioning Adjustment


A 10mm A/F spanner is required to adjust the actuator cushioning.

Loosen the locknut, and turn screw clockwise to increase cushioning,


then re-tighten the locknut.

Do not wind the screw out more than 13mm from the Actuator body,
otherwise the screw will separate from the body and loss of control of the
Actuator will occur.

High pressure oil could also be ejected from the cavity, causing possible
injury and mechanical damage.

6.3.6 Head Tilt actuator and overcentre valve


This actuator mounts off the Swing Arm and is used to rotate the Head
assembly. It is capable of rotating through 180°, but is limited to rotating
90° by a mechanical stop fitted on the Head Frame.

The Head assembly only needs to rotate through 90° to cover all down
holes. By moving the mechanical stop on the Head Frame, the Head is
able to rotate through another 90° to cover all up holes.

This actuator is not fitted with cushioning. An overcentre valve is fitted to


this actuator also, and it uses the same cartridges as used on the Swing
Arm overcentre valve.

6.3.7 Head Tilt actuator guard


This guard stops carriage hoses getting tangled up and also
incorporates a pick up for the ARM OUT sensor. The Rod Handler will
not function with this guard removed.

6.6 Laser Perimeter Beam


The Laser Perimeter Beam Kit (p/n 3002693) protects drill operators
without hindering their access to the equipment. It uses a Class 2 laser.

The light emitted from this device is safe to look at but is not
recommended.

If the laser beam is interrupted the Joystick controls to the Rod Handler
will be disabled. This will be indicated by the flashing strobe.

The Joystick controls to the Rod Handler can be re-enabled using the
AREA IS CLEAR button.

Note: Before pressing the AREA IS CLEAR button ensure no one is in


the machine work area.

Chapter 6: Rod Handler Operations
Periodic cleaning of the external lenses on the laser unit and reflector is
required. This will ensure the beam is reflected successfully and correct
operation of the Laser Safety Beam is maintained.

To test the operation of the laser and reflector system, check the
following:

●● The green light on the front, top corner of the laser unit is on. This
indicates that the power supply to the unit is connected.
●● Check the yellow light on the front, top corner is on. This indicates
the beam is being reflected successfully
●● Break the beam using your hand, the yellow light will turn off.
Remove hand to restore the reflected beam, the yellow light will
turn on.

Chapter 7: Rod Handler Troubleshooting

7.1 Important Information


Please check each section carefully, as what may appear to be a
hydraulics fault at the valve, may in fact be a Control Panel electrical
fault or vice versa.

If you experience any problems not mentioned on this list, please


contact your nearest Boart Longyear office for advice.

When the drill hydraulics are running, hydraulic pressure is supplied


to the Rod Handler DCV pressure port, regardless of whether the Rod
Handler joysticks are active or not.

The lights on the Control Panel have been included to make fault finding
an easier task. The sensor lights on the right hand side of the Control
Panel will only illuminate if a 24V DC signal gets to the particular PLC
input from each of the sensors, then the PLC sends a 24V DC output to
the relevant light. This is important to note when fault finding.

Please note which lights illuminate when a fault occurs. This will help
you and us, should you require outside assistance. This way, we can
quickly eliminate possible causes, and minimise down time.

Two charts are included which show what lights should be on at each
part of the rod handling sequence. This is for both rod feeding and rod
pulling.

All sensors with the exception of the pressure switch, have a light on
them which illuminates when they are sensing an object in their range.
Note also, that all sensors with the exception of the pressure switch,
work even when the hydraulics to the machine are switched off. This
means most electrical faults can be traced safely without the machine
running.

All of the hydraulic control valve sections are controlled via I/O module
inputs and outputs, which have LEDs to indicate their status. These
LEDs are normally yellow when the input or output is activated, and this
will help with fault finding.

In the event of an electrical failure to the Rod Handler and it is


necessary to move it to a safe position, a handle is supplied attached to
the valve assembly for emergency manual operation. It is important to
note that the handle will not operate the spools when electrical power is
still available at the solenoids.

Use this “Emergency Manual Operations” handle with extreme caution.

During manual operation the PLC no longer has control of the


safety functions. Understand what each valve section is used for,

7.4 Electrical Fault Finding Charts

7.4.1 Introduction
All faults or error conditions on the Rod Handler are detailed by means
of a unique numeric identifier (ID).

A complete list of possible faults is detailed in the Table on the next


page.

All active faults are annunciated using a ‘flash code’ on the ‘Fault/Error’
LED Lamp, centre-left of the Rod Handler control panel.

The flash code sequence is as follows:

1. The first, most significant digit (tens) is indicated using a fast flash
of 0.5 sec ON/OFF (1 HZ).

The count of the number of successive flashes represents the


value of the digit.
2. A 1 sec delay where the LED lamp will remain OFF

3. The second, least significant digit (units) is indicated using a fast


flash of 0.5 sec ON/OFF (1 HZ).

The count of the number of successive flashes represents the


value of the digit.
4. The sequence is followed by a 2 sec delay, where the LED lamp
will remain OFF.

The two digits indicated by the sequence, combined, represent the


numeric ID of the active fault in the range 11-99.

For convenience and ease of presentation, only specific codes detailed


in the following table will be provided.

The above sequence will be repeated for all active faults in numerical
order.

When all active faults have been annunciated, the entire process will be
repeated indefinitely.

To acknowledge the active faults, it will be necessary to rectify the


respective faults, and reset the annunciation process by actuating the
Rod Handler ON/OFF maintained mushroom-head pushbutton.

7.4.2 FAULT/BUTTON PRESSED indicator light


The FAULT /BUTTON PRESSED light on the Control Panel assists
with fault finding by displaying unique flash code sequences to
identify specific faults. A summary of flash codes, names, and their
corresponding fault descriptions appears below.

Listed overleaf are additional electrical fault finding charts to be used


when the rod handler is operating in Rod Pulling and Rod Feeding
modes.

The PLC unit used with the Rod Handler requires inputs from sensors
for certain functions to occur. Control Panel lights illuminate when the
relevant sensor sends a signal to the PLC.

7.4.3 Rod Pulling Mode


In the following table it is assumed that the Rod Handler is set up on
an angle, and to the side of the Feed Frame at the start of the Pulling
sequence, with the hydraulics operational.
