Sorry admins, please remove this... I just found the answer to my self inflicted stupidity....

General Mach Discussion / Strange speed control problem
« on: July 23, 2020, 04:24:14 AM »
I had finally managed to install a new BOB to a new inverter and have it all working on mach3. However for whatever reason suddenly the speed control does not want to work! When I switch the spindle on, it spins up to the minimum frequency that was set on the inverter. I've noticed that there is no voltage on the avi+ on the BOB. Moving the SRO% does nothing. If I set the minimum PWM to 100%, the spindle spins up to it's set maximum which is 400Hz. I have observed a 10V output on the avi+ which is the right thing. Same goes for if I set it to 50%. However sliding the SRO% still does nothing in both scenarios....

General Mach Discussion / Problem with spindle speed

I am new to the world of CNCs and really know nothing about it. The last few months have been such a steep learning curve but I really enjoy it! I purchased a CNC router around 8 years ago and didn't do anything with it. This year I decided to set it up.

First thing I did was change the BOB because I wanted USB compatibility. I then changed the inverter because somewhere along the way I fried it. I then spent around 2 months trying to get the inverter to work with the spindle.

Now all is done, inverter is set up nicely, spindle works flawlessly and computer is finally connected to the inverter and can control the spindle.

My main issue now is:

1) I have set the minimum frequency of my inverter to 120Hz and max at 400Hz. When I switch the spindle on in mach3, it ramps up to the displayed frequency. However, once I increase the frequency above roughly 270Hz, it will not go below it. That gives me a spindle frequency range of 270-400Hz only. The strange thing is that if I started it at 0% which is 120Hz, it will remain at that frequency and anything below 270Hz I will be able to go back down to 120Hz.
2) After I increase the freq and come back down to 270Hz, the speed fluctuates when it is around 270Hz.

I have done no setup to mach3 spindle settings, don't really know where to start. Would appreciate any help in this issue.
