Coronet Herald

Good morning

Error code 4 - several times lathe stops after a minor 'dig in', error code 4 displays - mains power off - error code still there - resets itself after a couple of minutes - this may not seem long but it seems a long time waiting when in middle of turning.

Also Error code 2 frequently comes up when I turn power off

Is there a fault with motor as this is most frustrating - this never happened with my CL4.

Hi,
I have just brought Record Power Coronet Herald.

I have the same problem with Error Code 02. It shows up as stop is pressed and just before it does stop it starts bleeping and code comes up on display, Error 02.

I have spoken to Record Power and they tell me this is normal. It is when the motor is turned off and it is an overload protection for the motor. It is because the motor wants to stop and the weight of the chuck plus timber is causing the motor to over run. They told me as long as the error code resets when stopped its fine and normal. It is not a fault....

Only worry if comes on when running. That's a different thing.

Record Power made some strange choices when they programmed the inverters on this lathe. A dig-in causes a spike in current or a dip in speed, either of which can generate an error code. Depending on the actual error code, they can either be hidden from the user or adjusted for a bit less sensitivity - but RP don't want to do that themselves or let the user do it. If you can see what make and model the inverter is, you could download the manual and have a, password permitting, (careful!) play with the parameters - remember, those settings are protecting the motor from damage and changing them would invalidate your warranty.
The speed ramp times are also quite long for some reason. This is a nice lathe that just needs a little fine tuning by RP.

Hi,
Thanks for update.
Only had it couple days and seems cracking to use. Been using 22 year old APTC came from Axminster Tools. So heavy big cast job, rests clamps all worn etc.
This is great. I can live with error. Not going to mess around with it and lose 5 years warranty.
