List of recommended actions:
If error shows at ramp up or at constant speed:
1. Check for a short circuit or partial short circuit and the insulation of the output wire is sufficient.
2. Increase the capacity or the inverter if it is too small. Replace with an inverter that has a larger capacity
3. Extend the ramp-up time
4. Decrease the torque and increase the set value.
5. Check if the motor is blocked and if there is a sudden change in load.
6. Check if there is a sudden chance in the power supply voltage.
7. Extend ramp down time
9. DC breaking is too high. Decrease DC breaking
10. Replace the inverter.
11. Check to see if there is a short circuit with the connection wire of the motor.
12. Extend the ramp-down time or add a breaking resistor.
13. Check the mains supply voltage and insure there isn't ant sudden change in voltage.
14. Send the inverter for repair.
15. Check whether the input voltage is normal
16. check whether there is a sudden change in load.
17. Check whether there is any phase missing.
18. Check the fan in the inverter. Is it spinning? Is it blocked? Does it have any foreign matter stuck on the fins of the fan? If so, clear the fan.
19. Check the ambient temperature in the space that the inverter is placed.
20. Check for adequate ventilation for the inverter where it is placed.
21. Check for jamming or any sudden change with respect to mechanical load.
22. Set the V/F curve correctly.
23. The motor is too small.
24. The motor is hot and the insulation of the motor degraded.
25. Check if the voltage has a large variance.
26. Check if there is a phase missing.

    My spindle inverter is showing an E.o.l.A error.

  • spindle not spinning

    Dealing with our spindle there can be a couple of things that can cause or have the spindle not turn on. (I will start with the simpler causes the going into more specific causes):
    1)Does the VFD LED panel turn on at all even without the spindle connected?
    2)Trying to connect a 220V VFD to a 110V socket, you will get a dL message on the VFD meaning there is not enough voltage going in to the VFD.
    3)If you are trying to connect the spindle to our parallel breakout board, if you wired the specific wires going from S/P to DCM/FOR. see the link for specific locations (https://buildyourcnc.com/item/electronicsAndMotors-parallel-breakout-relay).
    4)Also if your tried connecting the breakout board to the VFD, you will need to change PD 001 from 0 to 1. Which will be the form of communication from either manual or electronic on/off for the VFD.
    5)When you wired the spindle, did you have it wired to the VFD according to the wiring diagram and set the correct PD settings in the VFD? (https://buildyourcnc.com/item/spindle-inverter-2!2kw-spindle-novfd#prettyPhoto/9/)

  • MACH3 CONTROL SPINDLE

    It is not necessary to connect the spindle VFD (Variable Frequency Drive also called an Inverter) to the computer or CNC motion electronics. The VFD can be controlled independently using the control panel on the VFD. The control panel has the ability to control all aspects of the spindle including Speed, Torque, limits, etc. However, you can connect the VFD to the computer so the CNC control program can control the spindle during the CNC Machine operation. You will need to connect the VFD to the computer via a serial conection (in this case, it is the RS-485 protocol).

    The following are instructions on how to connect the VFD to Mach3 via this RS-485 serial connection.

    The first thing you will need is the dynamic link library to pair with mach3 called the Huanyang VFD Mach3 PlugIn. You can find this file at the mach3 support forum here: http://www.machsupport.com/forum/index.php/topic,14182.0.html

    You will also need to download the Microsoft .net 3.5 framework and install it: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=21

    Follow the pdf that comes with the library file, but here is a synopsis of what you need to do (I also added a lot more information that may be useful during this process as the manual does not cover the main connections that need to be done):

    You will need to program your VFD so that it knows how to communicate with mach3 and the computer (go into the programming mode of the VFD and change these parameters):
    - PD001 - value 2 - Enables with communication aspect of the VFD
    - PD002 - value 2 - Enables frequency control from the communcations port
    - PD163 - value 1 - VFD address
    - PD164 - value 1 - Baud rate of 9600 (speed of the communication)
    - PD165 - value 3 - 8N1 RTU - 8 bits (that's the size of the word that gets communicated), N (No parity or no error checking) and 1 (1 stop bit)

    Copy the dll file to the PlugIns folder of mach3.

    Connect the RX and TX lines to your computer. There are a couple ways you can do this, but the recommended way would be to use an FTDI USB device which converts a USB to a serial com port. The device will have Rx and Tx connectors to connect to the VFD terminals with the same labels. This method is recommended since serial ports are not as common in computers these days.

    Next, you will need to configure mach3 to use the plugin library. Start mach3 and click on Menu -> config ->Config Plugins. Enable the new plugin by clicking on the red cross on the left column next to the plug in. Restart mach3 after doing this.

    No you need to configure mach3 to use the HuanyangVFD plugin. Go to the ports & pins configuration and select the spindle setup tab. Make sure that the Disable Spindle Relays checkbox is unchecked. We don't want mach3 to output a signal for a relay since the spindle will start up and turn off within the VFD and not from an external relay.

    Next, go to the HuanyangVFD settings by clicking on Menu -> plugin control -> HuanyangVFD. Set the parameters to the same settings you put into the VFD programming. The com port will be shown as new hardward when you plug in the USB FTDI device. A little bubble will be displayed at the bottom right where it will notify you that a new device is being installed (be patient while windows assigns a com port). Alternatively, you can use the windows device manager to see which port was set for the new USB FTDI device). You may need to restart mach3 several times until you get the correct information displayed in the PD001 and PD002 fields. When the com port is correct and the other parameters, like baud and VFD address is the same as you entered in the programming, then the PD001 and PD002 will show the number 2, otherwise, a 99 will appear which means that communication was not successful.

    You can now control the on/off and RPM of the spindle using the RS485 communication between mach3 and the VFD.

    Additional Information:
    The question was how to connect the spindle to the redfy. I did not receive a VFD.
    I have the redFly system and a 2.2kW Spindle - 110V how do i connect the spindle?

    Additional Information:
    If you received a spindle without a VFD, please contact us asap. Our spindle will not work without a VFD.

    MACH3 CONTROL SPINDLE

  • spindle not turning

    I recently purchased a 6040 in march. I have taken very good care of it. Have not abused it. I have about 20 hours on the 1.5kw water cooled spindle of machine time cutting carbon fiber at stupid slow speeds. Last night, no bueno. Spindle will not run. I have no clue what happened. Spindle was controlled by MACH3, I run the program, it turns on, program stops it. I have no idea how to get it manually to turn on with all the buttons on the outside. VFD is new to me... I thought I was buying something more reliable, but haha jokes on me. I changed nothing. Did not crash the machine. Spindle did not make any funny noises, and I never saw the blue smoke of death. I am clueless why something would fail so quick. I have a 800kw water cooled on another router that has been running like a champ with no issues for 2 years. I abuse that one because I always wanted a bigger spindle. Thing still works like a champ. I am a "hobbyist" per say when it comes to these machines, but I do own quite a few of them. I have rebuilt quite a few routers as the San Antonio power is funny and have had quite a few surges that have damaged the control boxes.

    This morning, took another look at the nonworking one. Now when I power on the VFD, the spindle will start a slow rotation which can be reversed by manually clicking the directional button on the vfd display, and the display just shows the number 5 which I am assuming is the rpm, but I have no clue. I have no idea what configuration it is setup for. With the 800kw VFD, i turn on the power, hit run button, and then use a dial to ramp up the speed. This one doesn't have that options as far I can tell. The spindle will stop rotating with the slightest pressure applied to it. I tried to used the spindle hotkey on mach to turn on or do something, but no go. I give it a m03 and m04 command with speed of 10000, no go. The VFD is wired into the entire control box. It runs off the same power supply as the stepper drivers. The steppers work flawless with no problems. The spindle and steppers both run off the same usb breakout card. I have uninstalled, reinstalled, reinstalled all the plug-ins that came with it. I have changed usb ports. I have changed no settings in mach. So I think I have it narrowed down to either the spindle or the VFD. When I manually spin the spindle, I do not feel any wiggle, wobble, hangups.

    I have basically given up. I will try and deal with the china company later, but I need a working spindle sooner than i can get one from china. The router currently uses MACH3 to turn on and off the spindle and I have not acquired the electrical knowledge on how to set that up, etc. It was plug and play. So if you have something that I can manually turn on from outside and at some point hook up all the fancy wiring at a later time, that would be awesome.

    So the current spindle is a gdz 80-1.5 80x188mm 110v 1.5kw 5A 24000RPM

    If you think it is a spindle issue, let me know, if you think it is a VFD issue let me know. I am open to watching videos and see if i can trouble shoot it myself. I just dont want to keep speding $500 on new spindles every 20 hours.

    Price is really not an issue , if you think it is a combo problem will be glad to take advice. I just need someone local to help me get running again sooner than later

  • hmmm spindle or router

    The spindle is quieter and has more consistent torque (It doesn't get "bogged down" when it starts cutting into material). It can be used with collets of varying sizes (not restricted to imperial sizes). It is water cooled and so it does not blow air downward to cool the spindle like the router does. The spindle is also machined with much higher precision than typical routers and will have a much longer life.
