Re: Encoder Basics

Can someone verify if this encoder is acceptable for allin1?
SEM
755/HV
PPR:1250
No: 740594
747-1-46861
V+: 5-24
I am unsure because the other two encoders on this machine were Heidenhain TTL, and are unusable due to "TTL"
Thanks

Re: Fuses vs Breakers question

I bought some of these ROGY JVM16-63, Class C rated 20 amp din rail mount.

Fuses vs Breakers question

For an allin1 cnc conversion what is the prefered safety device for circuit protection? Fuses or Breakers? Same amp rating. Is there a difference?
I would think breakers are better as they are resetable.. :roll:

Re: Question to the forum,, VFD / spindle HP recomendation to ridgid tap

Thanks for the response, however that does not really answer the question, how much HP from spindle is recommended to say ridgid tap a 5/8" thread into mild steel? It does not really matter at this point in the road. I just ordered a HY VFD 5HP rated, so I will start with that and wire it to the 2hp...
