Premium Monitoring System, Troubleshooting, Rope Faults


Instructions on identifying the cause of rope fault through checking the wear indicator and verifying the GEN ON/OFF is registering correctly.

Rope Fault Troubleshooting Recommendations

  1. Using a voltmeter, confirm that the wear indicator is not worn out or shorted through the rope.

    • If continuity does not exist (500 Ohms or greater resistance), the rope is not yet in need of replacement. Continue to step 2.

    • If continuity does exist (less than 500 Ohms), the rope is in need of replacement, even if it may not look like it. After you replace the rope, press the REPLACE button on the ROPE SETTINGS page to record the date and time of replacement.

  2. Confirm that the Premium Monitoring System is properly registering GEN ON and GEN OFF. False rope faults can be the result of the monitoring system not properly sensing the GEN OFF status.

    • If the monitoring system is not sensing GEN ON and GEN OFF properly, contact Cutsforth to discuss adjusting the GEN ON sensing thresholds. Include a screenshot of the Premium Monitoring System HOME page.

    • If the monitoring system is sensing GEN ON and GEN OFF properly, continue to step 3.

  3. If the above recommendations do not resolve the issue, send screenshots of the Premium Monitoring System HOME page, ROPE GRAPHS page, and ROPE STATS page to Cutsforth. If the monitoring system is connected to the plant’s DCS, also include the shaft voltage zero-to-peak information from the previous 60-days along with the generator output level for the same time period.
