Mounting a transformer
« on: May 04, 2011, 02:38:32 PM »
 
I was wondering if I need to move my power supply transformer closer to the servo drives? Right now it is in the factory Hurco position, which is in the power cabinet with all of the contactors & other stuff.

Hurco had it this way & ran the supply wires to the servo drive side. Then they put the Capacitor/Rectifier right next to the drives.

Some of the power supply plans and servo manufacturers say to keep the lines short as possible going from the capacitor to the drives.

They never say anything about from the transformer to the caps.

It is already mounted all neat and clean in the factory position.

Let me know some ideas on this. The wires now are about 6ft ( 1.5 meters) long from the transformer to the capacitor.

I dont see a problem leaving it the way it is and is likely what I would do.

Thanks Hood,

I really wanted to leave it where it is. This being new to me, I'll need all of the room I can get in the servo cabinet. ;D

I'll get some pics up soon.

Thanks,
