Bridge Port Series II, retrofit project
« on: June 08, 2013, 11:28:53 PM »
Greetings,

     Here is a BP2, retrofit I am working on (as time permits).
Currently components are

01). ESS, C32, C52, M26, DG45(160v/40a drives "Balaz's"), DG45 converter cables, C27's, MPG4-6 From CNC4PC.
02). VFD (GS2 3hp), reactor, RF filters, VFD Brake, CB's, Contactors and all other industrial electrical from ADC.
03). Home built Drive Power supply: Avel Linburg Torrids 1.5kw x3 (one per drive), with smoothing circuit, mallory caps.
04). SIS wiring from AWC, HMI interface Push Buttons from Eaton (adc).
05). Two cabinets, one OEM for the "Main" panel, and another fabricated for the "Spindle and Power" electrical.
06). Lock-tight for all external electrical runs, Amphenal DC Servo connectors.
07). OEM servos, are DC, 1.3kw
08). Commercial grade electrical prints done in Rhino CAD. Cabinet components labeled to match CAD(s) and BOM.
09). 24vdc safety circuit (Category B), 24vdc also for all limit and home switches.
10). 24vdc, and 5vdc Din rail mount PS from Mean Well.
11). Control relays for: Coolant and Auto-oiler, plus 10 more user defined relay outs.
12). Optional inputs for: Tool Length Touch Off, and Digitizing Probe.

BTW: Anybody want to make a few extra bucks, and make me a 20"wide x 32"tall x 10"deep spindle cabinet?
I would also need a 18"x30" back plane (with 1/4 stand off, i.e. like 1/4" nuts). Also need a "Lid/Door" that would
close it via 4-6 screws. 16-14ga. would be fine...  I just don't have a plasma at the shop, and really, really HATE the idea,
of cutting one my self with a jig saw......


To Do:
01). Got to re-paint the old looking OEM cabinet, machine, and Spindle.
02). Complete the Main cabinet, and do the Spindle Cabinet.
03). Hang the cabinets on the beast.
04). Test everything.
05). Configure and tune the machine/mach3.
06). Sell the beast with a nice set of tool holders!
07). Figure out a way to HIDE the money from Momma.........  :)
08). Or if she figures out 7 above, find a grave plot next to walmart so she will visit me when I die,
     while she is spending that money.

PIC of "Main" (OEM) cabinet, with the electrical components, wire trough, din rail and labeling mounted.
Waiting on components from CNC4PC to come in to finish out this cabinet.

Benny,

     YOU have an excellent eye my friend!!!  I got it from another Mach3 user on this site, we traded for stuff we both needed!
I will have to cover the disconnect lever hole with a plate (and paint it of course).

Thanks,

Scott

I had the same issue, spot welded a plate in and then ground and smoothed to suit, filled it in with Fiberglass Auto body filler. Sand and paint. And it had 20 holes. But it was Cheap. Now it looks like new.
