Our Team Repairs Okuma DC-S3x Power Supply Modules

Similar to the DC-S1x series power supplies, our technicians here at Precision Zone expertly repair Okuma DC-S3x power supplies

Durable and powerful, these Okuma power supplies take in 3 phase AC and supply DC voltage for up to 5 servos.

These power supplies are necessary for running your servo drives and when the power supply goes down, it is necessary to quickly and efficiently repair the unit to get back up and running. Here at Precision Zone, we do just that with our 4 step repair process.

When assessing the functionality of the power supply, our technician's employ a basic four step troubleshooting process:

    1. Visual Overview
    2. Static Test
    3. Checks With Power Applied to Unit
    4. Verification of Alarm Codes

This overview is Precision Zone’s basic troubleshooting process. Once our repair team starts on the job, we use specialized and customized testing fixtures, Huntron trackers, signal generators, oscilloscopes, milli and megaohm meters, as well as any other necessary tools we have available to assure quality repair work. Most importantly, every repair is fully tested in our custom-built simulators under load with a motor to replicate real-life working environment.

Precision Zone goes as far as using heating chambers and overnight dynamic testing, when applicable, to guarantee performance of the repaired product when it arrives back with the customer.

Repair Process for Okuma DC-S3x Power Supply

Visual Overview

When conducting a visual check, the technician inspects the drive for any mechanical damage to the drive itself and any printed circuit boards. The technician then proceeds to verify connections are tight and correct inside the drive and there are no loose screws, wires or debris. Additionally, the unit is checked for any burn marks on the components, printed circuit boards or chassis. During the visual inspection, excessive dirt on cooling components is noted as well as the functionality of the heat sink.

Basic Static Check

Input Module Testing

Precision Zone repair technicians use digital multimeters with diode testing capabilities and also take resistance measurements to conduct a static test. For these units, in particular, our team of technicians uses the diode function of the multimeter as well as huntron devices to check the input modules.

There are checkpoints on the top of the PCB for 3.6V and 15V which is checked for shorts to the ground checkpoint.

The capacitor values on the PCBs are verified and any relays, contactors or circuit breakers in the drive are examined to ensure proper functionality.

Checks Under Power and Alarm Code Verification

Once the unit has been statically checked and ready for a complete powered check, the power supply is installed onto our custom built simulator. The supply is tested with servo units running a test motor to ensure that proper voltages are being outputted from the power supply. Incoming and outgoing voltages are measured and main components are checked on a Huntron scope to verify correct electrical behavior (displayed in I-V graphs).

Just like the DC-S1 supply, the DC-S3 power supplies have 2 LEDs that indicate status. The ‘PSON’ shows that the power supply is successfully regulating voltage. The ‘OH’ alarm LED lights when an error occurs, such as the power supply overheating.

When powered up, all voltages on the test points are verified and the VH and VL voltages are checked. Common issues with these units include board level components overheating over time. We specialize in replacing these components, cleaning all PCB corrosion and bringing the power supply back to normal working condition.
