Ok, I am converting a Clausing 12" lathe to CNC. While working on the ballscrew and motor mounts I decided to start working on the control
I have some questions:
I am using Advanced Motion Controls 30A8T Servo Amplifiers:http://www.a-m-c.com/download/datasheet/30a8.pdf
I was curious to know what the dipswitch settings should be set at.
I am using Electrocraft Servo motors, 60VDC max terminal voltage, one servo motor is rated @ 4.9A continuous and the the other @ 10.2A continuous, the motors have Renco 1000 line encoders)
Which mode should it be setup for, Voltage, Current or IR Comp?
Of the pins on the AMC 30A8, other than pins 4 & 5 (+/- Ref in from Galil), which others might I use or might be useful to wire up?
I will be using a 58VDC 16A torodial unregulated power supply
My XP computer is setup with MACH3 and the Galil plug in. Galil is configured.
Does anyone have any example wiring diagrams of a Galil/ICM1900 and an AMC? (If not and I can get some guidance, I will try and create one for the next guy!)
I would rather ask question and get some guidance from those who have been there and done that, rather than let the magic smoke out!
Thanks in advance!
