Spindle Control Seig SX2 Mini-Mill w/Brushless Motor
« on: September 27, 2012, 06:18:30 PM »
I have a MicroMark MicroLux Mini Mill with the Brushless Spindle Motor. I'd like to control the Brushless Motor with Mach but I'm not sure the best way to tap into the control PCB. I'm assuming that someone has already done it and can let me know. I'd really like to make use the of existing electronics to keep the cost low and maintain the manual usage of the Mill.

Any input would be appreciated.

Thanks!

Looks like you'd have to get one of these: http://www.littlemachineshop.com/products/product_view.php?ProductID=4213&category=1687114045 or one like it from another source maybe?

Hey Kyle....stumbled across this last night.  Check out post #129.  It has a schematic and detailed instructions on how to build your own.  I can think of a couple manufacturers that should do as good a job of documentation as this fellow does for free!
