Finished Plugins for Download / Re: Huanyang VFD controller plugin
« on: August 31, 2011, 12:19:15 PM »
HI, I'm Joe. I was previously using Delta VFDs. Never had a problem with them connecting using RS485. And then last week I got an offer for a Chinese spindle along with a controller at "Hard to believe" price on ebay. The spindle is a 2.2kW water cooled and came with a Huanyang HY02D223B VFD.

Thanks to friends here and at woodworkforums I have set up the VFD and the spindle now works like a charm. But the RS485 comm is starting to make me go bald ??? . My VFD has all the parts (RS485 Chip and the relays n everything. No parts are missing) I could start, stop, increase/decrease speed using Spindle Talker. But somehow the Mach3 Huanyang Plugin just won't connect.

    .net Framework 3.5 is installed
    plugin is installed as per the manual and Mach3 restarted (It is showing the config window but the parameter values are both 99)
    VFD settings are as folows:

    PD001 - 2
    PD002 - 2

    PD163 - 1
    PD164 - 1
    PD165 - 3

Does anyone have a condition similar to this where Spindle Talker works but the plugin wont?

I have another doubt. Maybe I'm wrong but the drive kinda looks "Legit" . I mean It has stickers with the company name and rating and even a hallmark and also came with the latest Huanyang Manual. Most of my friends who had got VFDs from china earlier got them with just a small sticker saying "2.2kW" and most of them had atleast one part missing. So does this mean this is a newer VFD from the same manufacturer with probably a different firmware?

Please Advice!

Joe!  :)
