Hello. On this episode of problems I’ve encounter while trying to use a spindle:
So I got my replacement spindle and vfd in. Last one cooked the vfd. This is an HY inverter and a matching 2.2kw spindle from amazon.
I have everything hooked up. Up to the vfd was planned permanent install. My vfd to spindle wires and coolant wires have not been cleaned up yet. They are hanging over head in the enclosure. I have larger tracks that need to be installed to hold everything that way but wanted to check functionality first, so far I can have the cnc operate or the spindle operate not both lol.
The vfd is being controlled manually for the time being. I am starting and stoping the spindle and setting rpm via the vfd controls.
I can start the machine, initialize it, it will go through bit setter motions and return from center like it should. The second I start the spindle the computer disconnects from the cnc. In order to reconnect I have to cut power to the cnc board and turn it back on.
Things that have changed since the last short lived spindle a couple weeks ago:
Everything moved into an enclosure
Motion stop switch installed.
I broke the usb cord that comes with it. The replacement does not have suppressors on it- it shouldn’t be so difficult to find one that does have them but it is.
I had this setup operating with the carbide router just fine.
I installed the new vfd and spindle with carbide mount today.
Any ideas? I’m assuming it’s an interference issue but I’m not sure.
