Temperature Wires for BE 16 frame motors

Due to the smaller frame size of the BE 16 frame motors, a temperature switch was not implemented into the motor. The Orange/Yellow wires spec in our 8000-4 catalog is spec for a BE 23 frame or bigger.

When configuring an amplifier for a BE 16 frame, be sure to disable the thermal switch checking.

If using an Aries Drive with Aries Support Tool, this is the default setting for the configuration wizard. The command to double-check this is DTHERM. To disable thermal checking is DTHERM1.

If using a Gemini Drive with Motion Planner, this is the default setting for the configuration wizard. The command to double-check this is DTHERM. To disable thermal checking is DTHERM1.
