Mach 3 & C10 breakout spindle control?
« on: June 22, 2010, 03:53:48 AM »
Hello I'm new to this and need some training wheel help please!

I'm using M3 with a C10 breakout and id like to know how i could control the speed of my spindle, the only info i have on the spindle speed controller is  on the link below which has a diagram (and its in Japanese). Will the C10 do a variable Voltage/Current?  into the VS,VC or CC inputs?. Also how come i cant ramp my spindle speed up past 8000rpm (not that it matters at the moment)

I can turn the spindle on and off but i have no speed controll, if any one could help that would be great and much appreciated.

Hi D,

Unfortunately the C10 does not have the on board variable speed control (it's the model C11 that has this). However this does not stop you varying the spindle speed using a seperate PWM / 0 - 10 Volt board for controllingl your VFD.
