C11 and ESS Spindle/VFD setup
« on: October 21, 2015, 01:02:36 AM »
Hello everyone. My first post here, as I've just swapped to a C11 board with the ESS running Mach3.

The spindle now starts and stops via software commands, and the next step is to get software to control the spindle speed. Right now I'm using the pot to change the speed. I've got a pretty good idea of what the VFD parameters will need to be set to, but the proof will be in the pudding once the wiring and config are set.

I have a Chinese 2.2kw ATC spindle with the Sunfar E300 VFD.

The config screens with Mach3 are a bit confusing, as is the wiring up of these items. Every example that I've found isn't for the setup that I have.

Can anyone give me a walk through of the set up for the required parts please.

No. It's still not sorted out.

Right now I'm just using the pot on the VFD to change the speeds. It's getting the job done, but I not ideal.
