Huanyang 2.2kw Spindle with VFD and G540 Issues
« on: January 31, 2016, 06:50:07 PM »
Greetings All.
I've read up on this topic a LOT, tons of googling, Found a ton of info here, unfortunately, not the info I need to fix my problem. 

Followed the wiring here.  http://www.homanndesigns.com/pdfs/EN010_V8.pdf

The relays work.  The spindle indeed starts.  However, the RPM shows 0 in Mach3 AND it cannot control the speed of the spindle.  I can turn the POT and it adjusts just fine, but if I try to change the speed in Mach3, nothing happens.  I have setup everything according to Port/Pins info found here.  Set up my pulley and all that. 

Thoughts?

Hi Mercury049 have you set the vfd to be controlled via g540 ? Look at the vfd manual at parameters and look for external control eg param 1-1 external control via 10volts. I am new and had the same thing. Cheers Peter

I figured it out last night.  I had all the PD settings correct, but I didn't change the position of a jumper on the VFD.  I made a quick video showing what I did and posted on youtube last night.  If anyone finds this post looking for ideas on why theirs won't work, feel free to watch my video.  https://youtu.be/GoiXZt9_cxc

Sorry for the messy environment, but still hacking it together. 

So, the problems is fixed now, thanks for the suggestions!
