Title: spindle RPM issues
Post by: Toad on March 03, 2016, 09:51:52 AM
Good day friends,
I replaced my spindle with a 4.0kw spindle.
Let me see if I can explain it.
 for some reason, my indicated rpm's on the inverter and mach are not correct.
The spindle has a top speed of 18000 rpm's @ F300.
In mach, when you reach 8000 rpm's, Inverter also says 8000 rpm's but Spindle is running wide open, and will not go any faster. Like it has a range is set for 0-8v instead of 0-10v. 
If I check it with a meter, the board is putting out 6 volts, the spindle is running at full speed. It will ramp down when voltage is lowered, but indicated rpm's cant be correct.
In the inverter manual, PD070 for analog input , #1 is for 0-10v that is where I have it set.
It really has me puzzled. Baud rate is set for 9600.
My settings on the inverter are:
PD001 =1  0-10v
PD002=1  Controlled by external board
PD003=300 max frequency for 18000 RPM
PD004=300 Max frequency
PD005=300 Max frequency
PD070=1 analog input
PD072=300  Max frequency
any assistance will be appreciated.
I've contacted manufacturer, but have not heard back yet.

OK, found the problem.
In the inverter, PD144 was set for 1400 changed it to 3000 and everything started working correctly.
