Allegra Error Codes

Hi all,

I use a Beckman-Coulter Allegra 25R centrifuge, and I can't find a list of error codes online. We don't have a manual anymore and I haven't been able to get tech support to send me a comprehensive list.

I even made a joke about this: http://labbratz.comicgenesis.com/d/20080825.html

Yes, it's an exaggeration.

Barely.

Thanks,

Ed

Prolly got this but just incase anybody searches for it again it is here!

If a problem occurs during operation, the rotor will decelerate to a stop and an error code will appear on the SPEED display. Messages may result from incorrect input or from an equipment malfunction. to determine the nature of the problem and recommended actions. If you are unable to correct the problem, call your Beckman Coulter Field Service representative. To help diagnose and correct the problem, try to gather as much information about the situation as you can:
• Write down the error number that appears on the display.
• Note the operating situation when the error occurred (rotor in use, speed, load type, etc.).
• Note any unusual environmental and/or operating conditions (ambient temperature, voltage fluctuations, etc.).
• Add any other information you think may be helpful. Refer to Table 4-1.
 
Table 4-1. Error Message Chart.

1 through 23, 25 and 26, 28 through 30, 32, 36, 39 and 40, 44 through 60, 63 through 68

Microprocessor or mechanical malfunction

Deceleration to full stop; run cannot be restarted

After rotor comes to a complete stop, turn the power off (0), then back on (I) to reset.

23 and 24, 27, 31, 33 through 35, 37 and 38, 41 through 43, 62

Microprocessor or mechanical malfunction

Deceleration to full stop; run cannot be restarted

After rotor comes to a complete stop, open and close the centrifuge door, then restart.

69 through 77

Microprocessor malfunction

Run cannot start until error is cleared

Turn the power off (0), then back on (I) to reset.

78
Through
80

Error during closing of door

Run cannot start

1. Remove debris in latch
2. Close lid quickly.
3. Turn the power off (0), then back on (I) to reset.

81

"Door open" detected during run

Maximum deceleration to full stop

After rotor comes to a complete stop, shut the centrifuge door, turn the power off (0), then back on (I) to reset.

82, 83

Door does not open

----

See EMERGENCY ACCESS, below

84

Heat sink over temperature

Deceleration to full stop

1. Check that ambient temperature is within the limits shown in SPECIFICATIONS.
2. Check air inlets and exhausts for through obstructions.
After the motor has cooled, restart. If the problem persists, call Beckman Coulter Field Service.

85 through 87

Rotor chamber over temperature (refrigerated models)

Deceleration to full stop

90
Through
96

Temperature sensor malfunction (refrigerated models)

Maximum deceleration to full stop

Turn the power off (0), then back on (I) to reset.

98

Rotor not recognized

Maximum deceleration to full stop

Check that the installed rotor is usable in the centrifuge. If incorrect, install an authorized rotor; if rotor is authorized and problem persists, call Beckman Coulter Field Service.

99

Rotor recognized but incorrect

Maximum deceleration to full stop

Input correct parameters for the rotor in use, then restart.

If the recommended action does not correct the problem, call Beckman Coulter Field Service.
