Centroid rocks ! Kudos !!!

Few things in life are as reliable as Centroid. Every once in a while you just have to acknowledge something really good. Kudos guys.

( any small hiccups due to new software releases have been addressed very quickly, imho )

Re: VFD Voltage/RPM fluctuating

I considered creating a new thread about my issues and eventual solutions on this same topic ( RPM fluctuating due to noise in the Acorn analog output wire causing voltage fluctuation at the VFD ) but it made more sense to add to this thread . Most of the solutions are outlined already in this threa...

Re: Integrating Sunfar E550 with Acorn PLC

I just edited my post because I only did the first half of what the GS4-2020 manual suggests. I did not use a ferrite ring and capacitor. I meant to, but things have been working fine, although I have had a couple odd app crashes that may be due to EFI from the new VFD being physically close to my ...

Re: Integrating Sunfar E550 with Acorn PLC

I ended up going with the GS4-2020 VFD from Automation Direct and cancelled the AMZ ordered HY VFD. Ultimately I just wanted a stout VFD that would work and work well ! Its huge and overkill for sure. I did, however experience a small amount of stuttering due to inadequate shielding so I ended up do...

Re: Integrating Sunfar E550 with Acorn PLC

Thanks Marty, I'll give the Huan Yang a try. My limitation of single phase 220v supply really restricts my VFD options for a 4.2kw spindle. The only really good quality VFD for a 4.2kw spindle is a $1380 GS4-2020 from Automation Direct. Jake Hence my hesitation to use such VFD's. You never know the...

Re: Integrating Sunfar E550 with Acorn PLC

Hi Arthur, You are not crazy. I've spent the last couple weeks trying to figure out why the same brand and model VFD has been causing me grief. I wish I had come across your post sooner. Basically I did everything you did to try solve it. I even rewired my complete electronics cabinet because of all...
