Is it 0-10 volt analogue or just on/off by relay?

Sorry bit above my pay grade Spindle runs through a VFD. I have set up Mach 3 as per chinese instructions and it seemed to be behaving itself. It finished off the roadrunner. Now I cannot set the spindle speed just zeros all the time

We need more to work on, some pictures of the vfd, settings and the inputs/outputs will help
