Mach3 will only display the commanded speed, and has no idea of what the actual speed may be.
If the VFD is running the spindle at the wrong speed, you probably have some settings wrong.
Can you give some examples of the differences you are seeing?

a good site where you can find a plugin for the Huanyang VFD and Mach3
I use it for years and it works very well

thanks tulip6 I was using a different plugin but as soon as I changed to the one you suggested it is all working like it should rpm is running the same as mach3 states and the rpm goes to zero when the spindle is off
