Spindle control - db25
« on: February 27, 2019, 03:58:36 PM »
Have been cleaning up my wiring that has accumulated over the years (limit switches, spindle tach, probe) by adding a db25 connector to my power/control box.  Really eliminates a lot of cords/cables.

I have plenty of pins left but was wondering whether it is okay/normal to use those for the VFD 10v+, Output and Ground on a Gecko g540?  Don't know anything about electrical limits.  Any help appreciated.

Each pin of DB25 can take max. of 2A and Max. of 250V
It is the wire used that may be limiting

if you get a flash over at 250V its going to explode. I'd be reluctant to push it out to 80V.

If you are talking conductors  supplying motors; inductive voltage spikes could spell a flashover!!!!
