Trend litely and double check everything from here on out less you let PUFF the smoke dragon out of his cave(;-)

You need to layout the entire BANDIT Wiring schematic and study it well. IF you do not understand what you are looking at then take the time to LEARN what you need to know BEFORE you hack into the wiring.

Only then will you KNOW where to interface the Kflop into the scheme of the bandit drives.etc.

Just a thought, (;-) TP

Yea I'm going at it with my brothers help as he knows a lot more about the computer side of things and electronics. I'm not in a big rush and we might even wind up buying a Fadal b4 this project is done but that's just wishful thinking.

Ok so I need to figure out wiring, chase down the power issue, and figure out why my spindle motor doesn't kick on.

On a side note the QuickDraw Tool changer tool carousel works perfectly. I haven't hooked up air pressure to it because I don't know how much it requires and I don't want to over pressure it.

So I've seen alot of people with this going on. Is it possible for me to do this as well with my setup? Is that the style of encoder I would want to buy? I saw the webpage for these encoders b4 but I lost it. When I was browsing I noticed they have multiple size bushings you can use for different shafts.

You are probably talking about the AMT encoders. http://www.amtencoder.com/Product/AMT103
Never used them as my motors already have encoders fitted so cant say from personal experience but have heard people say they are reasonable.

Ok so for the spindle motor I have the encoder figured out but the x and y have me stumped any ideas? They r directly mounted W/ a coupler and a keyway.

Ok So I'm reading the contraves-drives pdf and I was wondering what does signal mean?

Also on page 4-9 what does ARM + ARM- mean?

Not sure on the signal, depends where you are reading it from but I am thinking likely it is the +-10v signal from the controller.
The Arm+ - will be the motors main wires, ie the armature wires.

So I traced the power wires from my Spindle motor to a panel in the back of the machine. There r 3 red wires with a fuses coming into the box and 3 black wires right next to them going up to the motor. There is also a larger grey shielding with multiple wires going into the 1st panel where the main power switch is. U can see the 3 black wires at the very bottom of the pic
