  • expert chassis help needed

    i was wondering if someone out there could explain the following components to me in an advanced manor regarding these chassis components

    1/ 3 capacitors, what do they control?

    2/ T1 functions

    3/ T2 functions

    and in regards to a chassis problem, why did i blow CSM2 when i put a spare chassis on, this is definately a chassis fault

    and what is the likely cause to trip a control box circuit breaker

    and whath is the likely cause to trip a main circuit breaker

    please relate this to me in chassis terms, this is NOT a motor or machine problem

    the chassis in question has new contactors on them, and no wire are earthing out, i'm chasing a faulty component
    i don't need mods, i am a bloody genius

    This is what causes your problem 99 %of the time. Your chassis contacts for the swp -Table. the center contacts will have the screw missing causing the chassis to run and try to brake at the same time. This blows caps and breakers.Usually I put low tension locktite or fingernail polish on the screw so they dont work loose.Most of the time it is the lower(brakes) that are loose.with it missing the screw , the contacts slip and brake while trying to run and things blow.

      Are you using the original 5 boards or a 1 board relacement for this chassis?

      Tnx, Jon

            In general, a low-voltage short will blow CB in the back end control box. High-voltage shorts in chassis, machine, or motors will blow your wall circuit breaker or fuse.
