The big problem is the manual gear box.
I want to use a frequency converter and change only one gear with a belimo actuator......i hope it works.
any other idea?

for the linear scale i use a heidenhain EXE 602 e converter (sinus wave to ttl) box.

i have a question about the BBC servo amp.
mikron use a switch ( phase cange for motor and endcoder)  after the servo amp for + and -  feed.
but can i use the BBC servo axodyn 05LE  amp with +-10volt for + and - feed?
i connect the cs labs io to pin 3 (Vref+) and pin (Vref-).

I don't think the Amp will only control speed unless it was meant for something like a spindle.
I will have a search and see if I can find a manual for it in English as afraid I do not know German.

Ok, it is indeed just a speed controller, was this used on the machine before?
Was it just used as a power feed of some sort?
