Servo Questions
« on: June 05, 2007, 09:29:55 AM »
Hi All

I just installed a new 800 ozin servo on my Y axis. Its running great.
I did a test to compare its holding torque. I grabbed the timing belt
and to my surprise I could not move the belt. It has very strong
torque . The reason I mention this is the same test on my z axis shows
it takes very little pressure to make the servo break free. It seems
to have almost no detent torque.
This was a 360 ozin servo I got from Jeff Davies, its on a 24 volt
transformer. This axis had been a lot of trouble with servo faults.
I`m not certain if the motor is too small or its not tuned correctly.
I am considering getting another 800 servo and changing out the 360
ozin servo.
My other concern is all my servos will be on one 15 amp 54 volt power
supply.I would have (2) 800 ozin and (1)1100 ozin servo on the
supply. These motors were purchased from Dan Mauch.

You are only going to pull FLA (Full Load Amps) if you stall every axis at the same time... Also you could back down you current settings on the amps. I think you will be okay with the small supply, just have a few fuses handy :)

Fixing problems one post at a time ;)
