Re: Retrofit 2.0 TREE J325

I went with 240 on everything I could because it greatly simplifies things.

Re: What is normal behavior for servo drive faults and reset

On my DYN4 systems I have a separate breaker for drive logic power. I then cycle that breaker to reset a drive fault that won’t reset as described above.

Finally getting to wiring in the new control. It’s a lot in a small space. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20210524/3ec918c685a5e4143f15634dfa9f2296.jpg https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20210524/8f529da55b409ab68e8e907ac27c6141.jpg https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20210524/0dd3c3ec8c714a28bca98ffd0...

Re: Update from older software version

That leads to a mechanical issue.. something slipping or similar in the motion components.

That’s weird. Have you tried swapping drives or motors?

Is it ok to parallel Acorn and Ether1616 +24 power supplies?

As the subject says, is it ok to parallel up the +24vdc outputs of the power supplies that Centroid ships with Acorn and Ether1616?

Or should I just buy a 5a power supply like I did on my mill..?

Thanks in advance!
