Alarm message on Injection Molding Machine

In case of an error the corresponding alarm message will be displayed in the status bar in the lower left part of your screen just above the F1 – F10 keys (please refer to the Overview section for exact location of the status bar). You can see the alarm messages regardless of the screen you are currently using. In case of multiple alarms the status bar will display the most important alarm.

For a more detailed description and analysis of the error(s) that caused the alarm you can switch to the Error Messages Display Screen by pressing the (F6) Alarm key. In case of multiple alarms this screen allows you to verify any error/alarm messages the status bar might not have displayed.

Please refer to the Error Messages Display Screen section for more information.
