Re: DC all in one- what do I need to run an AC servo 4th axis?

Using that AC servo on the 4th axis may be possible with the ALLIN1DC but will depend on the motor and cost a bit more than you'd want. If it is compatible with our AC/DC drive (pn 12854/12855), then you'd be able to use it but you'll need another power supply, custom PLC work, and possibly a change...

Re: Hendrick/Shinx 20ZXGN 5-axis controller replacement

Those Mitsubishi drives can accept pulse train position commands and analog velocity/torque commands. These Yaskawa drives only accept analog commands. That makes the choice of Centroid controller pretty simple depending on the desired level of effort and the condition of the motors and drives. OAK ...

Re: Retrofit options for old point-to-point?

The CACR-SR series are all speed control drives. You'd want to use the Oak or OpticDirect to talk to those drives with analog velocity mode. See the appropriate manual for the drives here: https://www.yaskawa.com/downloads/-/document/downloads?documentType=Manuals%20-%20User%20Guides&productGrou...

Re: AASD 20A AC Chinese servo driver issue and configuration

Hello Tamar, I have not used those servos before but it might be a matter of more tuning required if the mechanical aspects of the axes are solid. Did you do the automatic gain adjustment and inertia identification? Is it set for manual tuning (Pn258 = 0)? Pn115 and Pn116 will have no effect if Pn25...

Re: TT-4 Touch Probe

Hello Simon, DP-7 is not wireless. All current Centroid probes are wired. Do you require a wireless probe? We do very strongly recommend using a consistent probe orientation. Typically, we suggest making sure that the LED is facing out the front of the machine for operator visibility. If the VFD has...

Re: Sanyo Denki PY AC Servo Drive + AcornSix - how to + a retrofit story

I would hold on to those 26LS31 line drivers just in case the suggested wiring does not work. It does state in the drive manual that you can use open collector outputs to their step inputs and gives a diagram of how to wire it on page 187 in the .pdf file. I cannot guarantee that it will work but it...

Re: Homing to hard stop with Delta B3A drives

That makes it difficult to recommend any particular method. I don't think it is possible to switch from PR mode to Communication mode without a power cycle. It might be worth reaching out to Delta's customer support for your region. Also, I will bring up adding support for EtherCAT homing modes to t...

Re: Sanyo Denki PY AC Servo Drive + AcornSix - how to + a retrofit story

Drive fault output on CN1 pin 43 looks like an open collector according to page 4-4 (pdf page 49). Power must be provided for the internal driver with either 12-24V on pin 49 or 5V on pin 38. Connect pin 43 to an input pin on ACORNSIX and pin 24 output common to the return for the power supply that ...
