General Mach Discussion / Re: machine conversion starting all over,
« on: May 22, 2006, 03:25:17 PM »
Thanks for your help wayne ,I will order the gecko(one to try out and understand conections and control)this week and as soon as I have it in my hand I will install it.In the mean time I still have to fix the bandit so that I can run the machine again.I have a couple of jobs I need to run on it.
Since you are in UK then we are about 5 hours difference , it is 12:20 here so it should be about 20 past five over there (monday 22).

good morning again .
Wayne are we in the same time zone?that is not important unless it interferes with our daily activities I guess.I think I have a good motor to replace the ones on my machine , in case I can't get them to run with the gecko 212 drive and my T20 thinkpad laptop.homeshop's RHT34-1200 looks like a good motor with 1200 oz/in I would probably still have to make an adapter plate to install .What do you think?have you ever used any of those motors/drives.?

I live in Arizona but my shop is in mexico.I see that the gecko 210 is also capable of 7a output but less costly.I guess that the difference would be smoothness in the performance at the various speeds.where could I see a set up that is a little more explanatory than a block diagram to review the way the machine needs to be set up,would you know?

I was looking at a automation direct stepper driver 4035 which says it is a 2 phase (don't know what that means exactly) and also looked at the skyko p100 but I could not see how to connect it (seems like it will need to have an encoder ).looked at the gecko drives 212 and it seems to be able to put out enough power.but again I am still unfamiliar with tehe way to connect them.

it seems the picture did post ,the machine looks at 90 degrees because my son turned the camera.but you can see all motors and also the controller.maybe I should also post it in one of the other categories so more members will see it maybe one of the has allready acomplished what I want to do for the same machine.I remember someone asking how to do retrofitting for a shizouka about 4 months ago.the boards have a legend 8A/ph max       21407201 c,d,b and have a logo which I have seen in the past but can't remember who it belongs to it looks like a sideways M crossed by an elongated S.
now that I look at the legend ,could this be 3 phase stepper motors?is there such a thing?.

well good morning everybody.I got some pictures now I just need to find out how to attach them to this message.some of the pictures did not come up as good  as I would like but they show the motor.maybe you can tell what it is by looking at them.

thanks for your interest in helping me I will go away today ,tomorrow I will have pictures for all the parts in the machine control and motors.maybe someone out there wil recognize them and sell me an old regulator board to get back in business.allowing me some more time to do my conversion a setep at a time.
thank you again.
Vale.

I don't have a camera ,but I will bring one tomorrow.no brushholders on motor body,so it could be a brushless stepper motor.As it is the machine was capable of locating very precisely.It makes me think that the way it has to position is by counting pulses inputed in the direction it needs to go by the controller.In order to use the same motors wold I have to put an encoder on the shaft , or could it be done by inputting a number of pulses to position or move to a location?

the only reason I think they are servos is because they are strong and smooth when moving,other than that I have no clue as to what they are,I have not taken them apart.I will take one apart ,and I should be able to tell what they are just by looking at the construction( think) it has been a while since I oppened one up ,maybe technology will fool me.I opened one and the only thing I could see after the first cover was a terminal board with 6 wires all of them the same gauge.no thin wires so I can only think there is no encoder so they must be stepper motors ?.

 ???I am stil trying to use mach3 in my t20 thinkpad 700mhz.pentium3 it works or looks like it works fine,I have not been able to get communication to the mills bandit control.can anybody point me in the right direction?.I would like to keep the same servos and drivers but I don't know where to put computer signals in to make servos move.I don't know anything about the servos(brand or specs,only that they worked fine before the control stopped working(I burned a 21408404c regulator board from the bandit,if I could get another one could be back in business for a little longer).
I want to eventually change everything to parts that I knowI can find replacements for.
As I was saying need to be able to get computer signal to servo drivers .do I need a board in between the servo driver and the computer?if I have mach 3?l
