Help Me Retrofit My CNC Mill
« on: November 17, 2016, 07:44:51 AM »
Hey guys,

I just came into a BP Series II Interact II with a V2XT Control. Odd, I know. Anyway the control has had it and I am looking to retrofit the mill using the existing servo motors with Mach 4 (or 3). If anyone could direct me to a parts list or similar to do a complete retrofit I would be most grateful. Mostly everyone that I have seen bases their builds off of gecko drives but my motors are too big for them i believe. They are 26 IB/IN 4000 rpm max motors, 112 V and 65 A Maximums as well. I know this complicates things a bit but id rather not have to spend $$$$ on new servos when the ones i have are in good shape. Pictures to follow.

See if it is possible to use the existing drives as well. If they are analog input the DSPMC-ip runs them very well. There are other options as well, just look at the plugins page.
We never have the time or money to do it right the first time, but we somehow manage to do it twice and then spend the money to get it right.
