water damage

How Does Water Damage Affect Electronics?

We all know that electronics and water just don’t mix. Ask anyone who has dropped a smartphone in the sink or had a burst pipe flood their office over the weekend. 

Water damage can occur in a variety of ways – there’s the “all at once” manner such as floods caused by severe storms, backed up drains, and burst pipes in the walls, ceilings, and floors. 

The other manner of water damage occurs over time due to slow seepage in and around work areas and machine shops. A faulty HVAC system can create damp and humid conditions that over time can cause water to condense inside machinery, computers, and other electronics.

water damage

But how does the damage actually occur?

When water penetrates an electronic or battery operated device, it can dry underneath circuit boards, integrated chip boards, capacitors, and other vital pieces that provide power to the unit. 

Once the water dries, it leaves behind contaminants and minerals, and these are the real culprits that cause damage to delicate parts.

It’s interesting to note that if a device is exposed to filtered or purified water, there’s a better than average chance that – if properly dried – the unit will function. This happens because there are no contaminants or minerals in this type of water.

Units and machines with LCD screens that have been exposed to water are a different story. When moisture – whether from excessive condensation or being soaked completely – gets in between the digitizer and the glass, the screen is essentially ruined. 

Devices that are powered by rechargeable batteries that use alkali or alkaline elements can be destroyed by water, without any chance of repair. The reason is that these elements are highly reactive to water – no matter if it’s over the course of time or immediate. 

When any electronic equipment has been exposed to water, there are a few actions you can take, depending on the size of the unit and the amount of water and moisture involved. Removing the devices from the area is the first step, the next is to place them in a dry area and use a heat source – set on low – to evaporate the moisture.

Taking apart the device to try and dry internal components shouldn’t be attempted. In many cases it can void the manufacturer’s warranty. In addition to this, the pieces that are inside the unit can be further damaged and unrepairable.

barcode scanner

Does Your Barcode Reader Need Service?

Barcode readers aren’t just for grocery stores and big box retailers, they can play an integral role in different industrial and production facilities for tracking and tracing items from production right up to distribution.

Available in different sizes – from fixed industrial scanners to handheld scanners – these tools are not only designed for heavy use, many of them are built to withstand harsh environments and extreme temperatures. They are also built to keep out debris and dirt and designed so they can be used for hours straight without causing hand and arm fatigue.

Purchasing the right barcode scanner depends mostly on how you’ll be using it, and where. There are several quality companies that have been making these scanners for decades, and the equipment they produce is durable and dependable.

Besides the scanner itself, there are other accessories to consider like a printer to create barcodes or replacement labels, charging stations, and docking stations to download information into a desktop, laptop, mobile phone, tablet.

Why Isn’t the Barcode Scanner Working?

Despite their durability and design for the workplace, barcode scanners can malfunction or stop working. Being able to identify the reasons why your scanner is no longer working how it should can help you determine if it’s time for repair services.

One of the simple reasons behind barcoder malfunctions is the actual screen – they’re easily smudged by dirt, grease, and debris. This problem is easily solved by cleaning with a non-abrasive cloth and a light application of cleaning fluid.

If cleaning the screen doesn’t work, it could signal that there are breaks or deep scratches that are disrupting the laser used to read the barcode labels. If this is the case, repair services are most likely the answer.

When they’re used for industrial and factory operations, barcode scanners can suffer a great deal of physical harm – whether they’ve been repeatedly dropped or misused. In these cases internal parts – like the lasers and accompanying reflectors that perform the actual scanning – can be damaged beyond repair and need to be replaced. 

Besides internal mechanisms, barcode scanners contain wires and circuit boards that can break, crack, and erode over time if the scanner’s casing has been cracked or completely broken.

When one or several of these factors occur, your barcode scanners will need service or repair. These options are usually less expensive than replacement and help save you money and help eliminate downtime.

touch screen

How to Care For Your Industrial Touch Screen Monitor

Industrial touch screen monitors are not only easy to use,  they’re built to withstand harsh environments and heavy use, which is perfect for industrial settings, including machine shops and production facilities.

touch screen

Touch screens can serve a variety of purposes, including controlling sensitive machinery, and making quick adjustments on production lines. Industrial touch screen monitors can also function as early warning systems by displaying messages and lights to alert users that something is going wrong. 

While they are built to be sturdier than desktop style touch screen monitors, industrial monitors still need to be cared for. Wiping down the screen with specially designed cleaning cloths can remove dirt and debris, which can build up and decrease the sensitivity of the screen. Using rags, paper towels, or napkins isn’t a wise choice, as they tend to smear grease and dirt and in some cases press debris and dirt into the screen’s surface.

When your industrial touch screen monitor isn’t performing well, you may need to recalibrate it. Poor accuracy can result in machine malfunctions, which results in downtime. Most touch screens provide calibration functions directly on the screen, while others may need operators to calibrate via buttons on the monitor frame. 

Touch screens which are connected to larger computers or mainframes can malfunction due to improperly installed operating systems – or they may require updates. If the screen isn’t working correctly, your IT department may need to check the software to see if it’s out of date or requires a patch – software updates that help correct security holes or other recently discovered problems.

You can also access the screen’s setting to determine if the sensitivity level is too high or too low, either setting can affect performance – and if users aren’t careful they can damage the electronics that lay directly under the screen’s surface. Over time the sensitivity of the screen can be affected by heavy use.

Some screens come with a stylus, which comes in handy when users are wearing gloves or other protective gear. Keep the stylus nearby to discourage people from using pens, pencils or other objects with sharp points – when holes are poked into the screen, the surrounding area can malfunction or stop working altogether.

Regardless of how careful you and your coworkers are, industrial touch screen monitors may need to be repaired, which can save on having to completely replace the equipment. 

ACS Industrial has been repairing these types of monitors for more than two decades, and our connections with parts suppliers helps ensure quick turnaround with quality components.

In addition we offer free evaluation and a repair quote so you experience minimal downtime. When your bring your industrial touch screen monitor in for service you can expect:

  • To save up to 80% of the cost to buy a new one
  • Your monitor will be back in your hands in 5-15 days. 
  • With our Rush Repair option you can have your equipment back in just 2-5 days.

CNC

Which Components Most Commonly Result in CNC Repair?

Computer Numerical Control (CNC) machines have been in use for more than 50 years. In the beginning they were controlled by punched tape, a forerunner of electronic computer coding. This method was quickly outdated, and users turned to analog methods, quickly followed by digital coding – which was much easier to use and extremely accurate.

CNC

The term “CNC machine” can be applied to a variety of tools, all of which use different parts to accomplish their mission: turning a piece of raw material into a finished product. The code tells the CNC machine how to move, which pieces to cut away, and which pieces to keep. The finished product is precisely designed.

Some of the different CNC machines commonly used in today’s manufacturing and industrial fields include:

  • Mills
  • Lathes
  • Plasma Cutters
  • Electric Discharge Machining
  • Electron Beam Machining
  • Multi-Spindle Machines
  • Wire EDMs
  • Sinker EDMs
  • Water Jet Cutters
  • Punch Presses

Each of these machines are used for specific purposes and industries, and can be used with a wide variety of raw materials. These materials can range from aluminum to copper and titanium to wood and fiberglass.

No matter the material, every CNC machine requires human and computer interaction to achieve its purpose. Each of these operating systems relies on the CNC machinery to produce a finished product that matches exact specifications. Like any tool or machine, specific parts and operating habits can require CNC repair.

Components That Require CNC Repair

CNC machines are not perfect, and in many operations they are workhorses that receive hours of operating time. In addition, they can be used by employees with different levels of experience and skills, resulting in breakage or poor performance. Of course, internal and external factors also play a role.

Maintenance Issues

CNC machines need to be properly maintained – dirt and grime buildup can cause problems with the cutting process. When these precision instruments are misguided due to debris, finished pieces may not be properly sized. In addition to dirt, CNC machines can malfunction due to improper lubrication.

Tool Breakdowns

Depending on maintenance and usage, the actual tool could be worn down or improperly maintained – when this happens precision could decline rapidly, along with damage done to the material being cut. In the event that the tool isn’t properly lubricated, it could be moving too slow, resulting in burn marks on the material.

Motor

The motor driving a CNC machine may need to be repaired due to increased usage without proper maintenance. The brushes of the motor could be damaged or worn – in many cases they can bend due to prolonged use. 

Monitors and Relay Boards

If a monitor fails to activate, or the relay board’s operating light fails to work, there could be internal problems that require attention. Many times, it can be traced to faulty solder points or burned out wires.

Hydraulic Pump

If your CNC machine is equipped with a hydraulic pump, problems with the adjustment valve can cause breakage. Faulty wiring, worn parts, and even malfunctioning terminals can all be the causes that lead to your CNC machine not working.

ACS Industrial’s Techs Are Ready to Help!

When your CNC machine stops working, you’re looking at lost time and lost income. ACS has more than two decades’ worth of experience with CNC machine repairs, and we guarantee our repairs with a full two-year warranty.

monitor repair

Reasons You May Need Monitor Repair

Monitors have quickly become the industry standard – no matter where or how they are being used. Durable and dependable, their simplistic design results in a small footprint, saving valuable space on desks and workstations.

monitor repair

There are plenty of monitor benefits and features to choose from, including high resolution, portable, and basic models. Each of them is competitively priced, and the company provides deep resources and information for each model.

Computer monitors can be affected by the work place environment – constant use, low quality air circulation, vibration, and other factors can cause performance problems that might indicate the monitor isn’t performing the way it should.

Signs Your Monitor Needs Repair

Computer monitors have come a long way since their first inception, and as laptops and tablets continue to be the industry norm, an extra monitor can function as a vital piece of equipment.

Here are a few reasons why it could be time for monitor repair:

Blank Screen – a blank screen is obviously a major problem with your monitor. The first step is to unplug and plug in the monitor – as basic as this seems it can help correct the problem. If you’re using a power strip, make sure it’s turned on and working properly. Don’t forget to test the outlet the screen is plugged into. However, if this quick fix doesn’t work, there may be an internal problem with the screen’s power source or a frayed video cable.

Graphic Problem – a flickering screen or problems with graphics and images properly displaying are another indicator that you may need to get your monitor fixed. This could also indicate that your graphics card has been damaged or that specific drivers have not been uploaded, or were installed and then did not work.

VGA Input – if you’re using a VGA (video graphics array) cable to connect your device to a monitor, there could be damage to the monitor’s port. The connections may have been damaged by continued use or users forcing the cable’s connectors into the port.

Broken Buttons – The buttons on most monitors can be used to regulate screen brightness, horizontal and vertical image display, and a variety of other functions. Buttons can fail to connect with the proper internal contacts due to use or debris.

Why CRT Monitor Retrofit May be Necessary

Why CRT Monitor Retrofit May be Necessary

Cathode Ray Tube (CRT) Monitors may seem like an outdated technology, but they continue to be used for a variety of applications across multiple industries.

CRT Monitors were popular for years because they are less expensive than other display technologies, such as LCD monitors, and feature quicker response time. Besides these advantages, CRT monitors can operate at any resolution and images won’t have to be rescaled to fit different aspect ratios – a definite time saving feature.

Plus, a CRT monitor can work in dim to low light, a common lighting situation in machine rooms and other departments in an operation. Part of this is due to the screen’s ability to reflect any available light, which increases brightness. Despite its ability to function in low light, a CRT monitor produces more colors, thanks to its technology.

For these reasons, CRT monitors were popular choices for most industries, However, CRT monitors also come with a number of issues that are making them obsolete.

Time for a Retrofit!

The drawback to CRT monitors is that parts are no longer being manufactured for them due to cathode tube rays needing mercury – a toxic substance that is no longer used in many products due to health concerns.

Another key part of the CRT monitor is the high voltage transformer, which controls horizontal movement of the electron beam that helps create the image. These transformers are no longer being manufactured due to the fact they are considered obsolete.

The process of an LCD retrofit includes a plug and play solution – obsolete components are replaced with new parts that are reliable and perform a faster pace. Retrofits can be performed on virtually any monitor – it’s an upgrade that won’t strain your budget.

ACS can help solve your CRT monitor problem by providing a complete LCD retrofit. This process will allow you to continue using the monitor, but with improved graphic performance and picture quality. 

If you’re looking for an expert LCD retrofit, Contact ACS with the part numbers and detailed specifics of your monitor: model number, make, etc. We will then check our inventory and suppliers to determine the availability of a direct retrofit.

With ACS:

  • You can get your CRT monitor repaired and save up to 80% of the cost to buy a new one
  • Most repairs are back in your hands in 7-15 days.

Top 3 Reasons Servo Drives Break Down

Top 3 Reasons Servo Drives Break Down

A servo system plays a crucial part in many operations, and keeping it running is of utmost importance. Downtime due to maintenance can be planned and scheduled without having a major impact on your business, but should your servo driver cease to function, the cost can be extraordinary. 

Servo drivers are built to withstand heavy work loads, and with the right maintenance and care, they can function smoothly. However, they can still fail due to a variety of outside forces, which are beyond control.

Knowing how servo drives can break down can help operators and owners spot potential problems before they get worse, and have the drives repaired quickly. Being proactive can save your operation a great deal of downtime, and more importantly prevent loss of income.

Top 3 Reasons Servo Drives Break Down

Corrupted Software

One of the main components of any servo drive is its software. These programs interpret signals and feedback to help regulate servo motors throughout an operation. Glitches and bugs that are part of the software’s programming can cause the drive to malfunction and possibly shut down.

Bad Connection

When a servo drive generates an error message, the problem could be a bad connection between the encoder and the actual drive. Electromagnetic noise is another culprit, disrupting the encoder signal.

When this happens, you can take several preliminary steps to troubleshoot the problem. One option is to check the encoder cable connecting the servo drive and the servo motor. The cable could simply be disconnected, but in some cases it can be damaged, which in turn causes the motor to stop working. 

Faulty AC Drive

Your servo drive needs to operate in a controlled atmosphere, and a damaged or malfunctioning AC drive can cause the servo drive, and possibly the servo motor, to fail. AC drives are designed to work long hours without fail, but voltage spikes can damage the drive, along with electrical issues such as poor grounding. Dust particles and moisture can contribute to the failure of an AC drive.

ACS Knows Servo Drives

At ACS, we are familiar with servo drives and how they operate. We’re familiar with most brands on the market, and our experience enables us to quickly diagnose why your drive failed, and how to repair it quickly and correctly.

I:O Cards

What I/O Cards are and How They Work

The term I/O means “input” and “output” and are the fundamental idea behind computers. Basically, for every input, there’s an output. You pull up a document on your computer and use the keyboard to print it. The keyboard is the input and the printer is the output. This is a simple explanation of I/O, but it’s a good start to help explain what I/O cards are and how they work.

I:O Cards

The ports on your laptop or desktop computer are also known as I/O imports for the same reason – you plug in a USB cord, controller, or other peripheral device, which is the input. What the device controls is the output.

So what are I/O Cards?

When you look at an I/O card, you’ll probably think it resembles a circuit board – that’s because it is! This board plugs into a slot on the motherboard of a computer so it can control a peripheral device like a controller or mouse. 

I/O cards are also called interface cards, adapters, or controllers. In addition they might be referred to as expansion cards, because they expand the capability of a computer or laptop. Of course, these cards are also used in an industrial capacity and are much larger and more complex than those used for personal computers.

How Do They Work?

I/O cards function as a bridge between a computer and an outside device – this can range from a monitor to a keyboard. The outside device transmits a signal to the I/O card which results in an action being performed.

The part of the I/O card that faces out can accept a variety of different devices and cables. While some cable inputs might be as simple as a USB plug, industrial size I/O cards may be customized to accept specially designed plugs and devices.

When an I/O card is damaged, there is a disconnect with the device, which can cause errors and downtime. Damage can occur in a variety of ways, and much like circuit boards, I/O cards can be repaired or replaced, depending upon the amount of damage they have sustained.

What Happens If Your I/O Card is Damaged?

Should your I/O card or module be damaged, it’s not necessary to purchase a new one, ACS Industrial services has a staff of experts who can perform a free evaluation of the card and a repair quote that is dependable and accurate. In many cases repairing a card can save you up to 80% of the cost to purchase a new one.

With more than two decades of service and repair, ACS works with most of the major brand of I/O cards and equipment, including:

  • Emerson PACSystems RX3i
  • Siemens
  • Rockwell Automation / Allen Bradley
  • Mitsubishi Electric
  • Schneider Electric
  • ABB
  • Honeywell Process

ACS usually has repaired I/O cards back to you within 7-15 days, and if it’s an emergency that requires immediate attention, we also offer a Rush Repair Service with shipping back to you between 2-5 days.

You can find out more about our I/O repair services on our website page or call us today at 800-605-6419.
