Anilam Series 1100 (Step/Dir Help)
« on: October 31, 2007, 10:52:30 AM »
I have Bridgeport Series II Special with an Anilam Series 1100. Can I interface step/dir control logic to this controller or will I need Pixie Boards to convert step/dir to analog? If I need the Pixies Boards, has anyone interfaced them to these amplifiers/drivers before?

The current Anilam 1100 works now, but I want to add some additional features using the macro pump on Mach3, MPG, JoyStick, ect

Does anyone have a block diagram or wire diagram for this ?   

Many thanks,
Joel

I'm installing Mach 3 onto a similar setup.  Did you ever get a map?  I'd like to know what the K2, PCB 801, 901-175 relay board does.

The Anilam 1100 Amplifiers are analog.  We were able to get this functional using pixie 100s (Step Dir to Analog Converters)   Pixies are no longer around, but there are other options out there for this.

I have attached some PDFs that I found during my investigation and the pinouts list that I was building.  Hope this helps.

Thanks JH,

This data should help!
 I'm retrofitting a Fryer bed-mill which had the identical looking setup.  I'm at work now; I think it was an Anilam 1100M.  Its slow going and finally this Thanksgiving 4-day weekend I had some time to try and fire it up.  I used a Galil DMC-4040 motion control board and a new computer but was hoping to reuse everything else (servos, amps, PS, encoders).  The computer, the Galil (motion control board), the software, the limit switches, and the encoders all worked on the first try.  The servos didn't "power up" though.  Basically I now have a manual mill with DRO.  The whole bottom part of your picture looks like my past and current set-up as I didn't change any of that stuff.    As near I can tell, the PCB board on the lower left has three relays that “turn on” the power supply (bridge rectifier + big honking capacitor) for the amp boards.   I thought one relay would connect the 115VAC power to the bridge rectifier.  I tried wiring it direct with a toggle switch (bypassing the relay board) but it still didn’t charge the servos.  The other one or both relays must also do something as well.  The board has a 24VDC input as well and therefore might have a 24VDC output via relay.  It looks like you got yours to work.  Did you reuse the power supply, amps and servos?  If you did, how did you wire it to “turn on” the servos?  I’m brand new to milling and even more new to CNC if that makes any sense.  So by ”turn-on” servos I mean …prior to when my mill with Anilam control died when I reset the servos they “locked” the axis’s in their current position, then if they got a move + direction command they moved.   I’m still trying to get them to power up and thus lock the axis handles from movement.  The move + direction part I think I got wired up correctly.   I’m grateful for the help that you already gave me and when I get home and sit down with it and the components it may solve my problem.  You are probably very busy, but if you can spare any more time I’d really appreciate your knowledge or any suggestions that you have.

Thanks again.
Chris

Yes, we used/saved the PS, Amplifiers and Servos.  Gutted the reset of the stuff.

If my memory is correct, its pin 6 below.  This is how you lock the servo on.   Not sure on the voltage level, could be active low, 5 or 12 VDC.   I sold off this machine several years back.

Thanks again JH,

It makes perfect sense that it would be connected to the eStop.  After I figure it out I was going to wire it through a eStop.  Its so much easier after someone fills in all the blanks.  I'll pull that relay board tonight and try to map the pins.  The relay's coils are 24VDC and I have the 24VDC, I know there's a 115VAC in and out via one of three relays, and now I know at least one of the relays is for the old eStop.  Thank you, thank you, thank you. I may yet get this beast running.

There is also a solid state relay under that board that is bolted to it.

This may help.

Thanks Derek,

I tracked the wiring of the board last night.  Well at least a portion of it untill I reached the concusion that if I input 24vdc to the first pin of the "P3" set of pins, that will charge the coils of both "K1" and "K3" relays and that will inturn charge the coil of the "K2" relay.  So one pin both "turns on" the power 115VAC to the Power supply to the Amp/motor boards and "removes" the ground that generates an eStop fault.  I'll wire it up tonight or tommorrow night and test it out.  4 wires from the board to the eStop and done.  One wire from onboard 24VDC through a CNC/manual toggle switch to the NC eStop out to pin 1 on"P3".  Resetting switch when toggle set to CNC (closed) powers the servos up and removes fault.  Another wire from ground to NO eStop and back to the amp board gives a redundant fault eStop.  The eStop is also connected to the spindle, thats why the toggle switch is needed.  I'll check your schematics first just to make sure.  This board seems like an easy way to turn on (or off, or switch) other things as well.  It may be very handy.  I haven't looked at the 4th relay yet and have quite a few open pins that can be exploited.

I have the same style drives +-10v and am using Vital systems DSPMC  $1000.00 looking for something cheaper for my next project.
Also have a milltronics project with a build in motion board but it's on a 386 platform, don't know how to use with a pentium4 and Mach.
