Setting up Teco 7300CV VFD
« on: February 09, 2016, 03:38:47 PM »
Hi,

I am a little confused, most of what I am reading is referring to an analog connection between the HICON board and The Teco 7300CV VFD.

I am changing from a different control software (millmaster) to Mach 4,
From a different Motion control board (mn400) to HICON Integra board

Currently the VFD is connected to PC over serial, not an analog wire.  When I switch to the hicon and Mach4 will the VFD still be controlled over serial, or do I need to get it working over analog?  Does one method have advantages over the other?  At first glance to me, the serial seems like the better control interface.  How do I set this up?  The VFD is already working well with the old setup.

VFD spindle speed is controlled by 0-10v analog signal from HiCON.  Serial comms will not work.

You can also make an axis as spindle that allows to use step/dir type drives and motors for spindle.  you can then orient the spindle as well for ATC applications.

regards

Ok, I will try to figure out how to get it working over analog then, I was hoping there was a way inside mach 3 to continue using the spindle over serial.
