simple VSD
« on: February 26, 2017, 07:22:02 AM »
Hello Chaps - my previous post about an omron VSD refers.

Can someone recommend a very simple VSD? I am led to believe that the Omron MX2 that i
have is a very sophisticated drive - offerring functionality that I will never use.

I am sure that there must be simple drive available. I only want to control the spindle speed
through Mach3??

anyone have any ideas?

All VFDs offer functionality you'll never use, its only software. You only set them up once and virtually all have simple settings already set. So if it runs I'd stick with what have. If you need setting help I can likely help you out, I've worked with lots of VFDs. If their VFD instructions are anything like their PLC instructions I can understand your confusion!

hello dave- i looked up schnieder here inSA and everything looked good until i asked the price.
With no malice- i am sure they are very godd- but other equipment is about half the price-

and garyhlucas-- thanks for the offer - I will bear it in mind-- maybe i should just stay with my
omron-- and learn the tricks

best regards

Omron is a good make, I would persevere and discover the way to get it going, what specific function or feature are you struggling with?
