Re: Looking for a wiring schematic for the legacy servo3IO

Scott accidentally sent you a schematic for a DC3IO not a SERVO3IO. I don't know why he sent you an ATC schematic. Did you inform him that your machine has an ATC? He is correct in that if you can provide us with a current report from the system, we will be able to provide you with the schematic tha...

Re: Spindle Speed Question

I doubt that it has anything to do with the wire sizes but those signal wires should be a minimum of 22AWG. When you ran your test, were the analog signal wires disconnected from the VFD? Were the probe meters directly screwed onto the terminals of the ACORN board? I'm not sure what "higher speed" r...

Re: Spindle Speed Question

Please send us a current report from your system. Your spindle speed shouldn't be changing speeds unless you are running Constant Surface Speed in the Lathe software. Disconnect the analog signals to the inverter and command a speed. Do you see that voltage oscillating?

Re: PLC Preventing MPG Movement

Tom, Not exactly sure what this logic "QuillBallnutClamped ^ InvQuillClampSwitch_M" is for but as long as you have an input that tells the control when the quill is in manual mode, let's call it ManualQuill then all you need is the following logic. IF MPG_AXIS_1 || MPG_AXIS_2 || (MPG_AXIS_3 && !Manu...

Re: Running backwards

Looking at the report, you do have permanent unlocks entered. Please verify that on the Options, it shows Permanent Unlock and Intercon as highlighted in green and that they say ON to the left of the option. If it does, then you have nothing to worry about as when the DEMO expires, those features wi...

Re: Running backwards

A dead CMOS battery shouldn't cause the control to be locked out of the CNC10 software. Please email us a current report from that system. Whether you have a Windows or Linux or DOS system, generating a report is pretty much the same. The only time it's different is on the older DOS systems because ...

Re: Running backwards

Based on their serial number of the control, this is an old Centroid CNCDRO control. It sounds like the control wasn't properly setup but that is why we need a current report from the system to see how the system is setup.

Re: Connecting TB Woods SW1 vfd to Oak Board

Looking at that manual, the relay output can be used as a fault output. You will have to set P-18 to a 1. It also states that the output is a Normally Open(NO) output. The Centroid control's inputs are setup as Normally Closed(NC) by default. You will need to invert the logic which is very simple. A...

Re: Connecting TB Woods SW1 vfd to Oak Board

Figure 4-3 on the photo that you attached shows how you would hook it up. You can follow the attached table for the connections based on the photo that you supplied. The Digital I/P are most likely programmable inputs. Based on the value of a parameter, it tells the VFD what that particular input is...
