Error Messages

It’s very kind of designers and manufacturers to provide error messages on their systems. Well it would be if they provided information about the message. “No DC” is not very helpful when all the control voltages are present. What they actually mean is that there is no main DC supply to use for the output. Turns out it’s not the supplying contactor, nor the contactor on the PCB board, nor the burnt out resistors. Well the resistors were a problem, it’s just that the dead short on the IGBT (the power switching device) caused them to burn out. So now we wait for a replacement IGBT.

    Like the ‘check engine’ light on a car, which can be any one of a hundred things?

    YDog, that I can cut some slack (Houston we have problem take me to some one who can fix me), until it appears for the mechanic with no other information. Why bother with a message unless it’s explained to some one who can use it?

    Then again you could get:-

    ERROR MESSAGE!

    Actually, there is no error. Your OS has been working well all day and we’re just pointing this out to you in case you didn’t notice. Cheers.

    Now those are the messages I would like to get. At least they would make you laugh.
