Hi Vince.

Here is a document wich can help you too understand the offsets. It's not from me, i think i take it from the Art Homepage (not sure).

Regards from Germany, Dietmar


Can someone tell me what kind of Servo-Motors runs with the SmoothStepper? Only DC-Motors or can i use AC-Motors too? I try to find it out on the Homepage from Warp 9 Tech
but there is no Information (perhaps i am Blind...) the searching on this Board doesn't help. When there is a option for the AC-Motors can I use all Motors from different    manufacturer?

Regards, Dietmar.

Hello Simon.

I have exactly the same machine, a Boxford 160 TCL with a 8-station-turret. I have a look at the Lenze-Spindle motor, its the same as yours. The two yellow wires are for the over temperature cutout, i don't use this two one. Look here:

I'll do the motor reversing with a switch for cw an ccw, first i try to do this with a relay for cw and ccw, but i can't get it to work. The switch is this one

Hello Graham and all.

I'm from German and this is my first Post in this great Forum. I read your Posts to the Problem with the Spindle Drive.
 I have the same Drive (it's an Lenze 534) on a Boxford 160TCL CNC-Lathe, it works with a Lenze DC-Motor 180 Volts.
 I use Mach3 and i have the same Problem: How can i change the direction of the drive?.
I use this Board:http://www.campbelldesigns.com/breakout-board.php and the Spindle Control
http://www.campbelldesigns.com/mach-spindle-speed-control.php. With the second Board i can control the
Spindle Speed with an analogue 0-10V input. It works well, but i have no Idea how to change the direction.
The Spindle Control Pcb have the same N/O COM N/C pins like the DigiSpeedXL. Did i need two relais
with 24 Volts (one for Fwd and one for Rwd) ore can i do it with one relais? Please excuse my bad English and i
hope you understand what i mean. I have no Problems to read in English but it's difficult to writhe in English.

Best regards, Dietmar.
