Question #: 13793

Question: How do you set up Frequency converter for 2.2kw spindle?

Current Solution

Ideally, the spindle VFD should use an actual 220V socket that contains the minimum amp fuse that will allow the appropriate draw for all of the items that will be plugged into that socket. If you elect to use a boost converter, the 2.2kW spindle VFD will need a 2200 watts or more.

My brother is using 1000W and told me his spindle is working just fine. Is it safe to use 1000W ?

I still can't recommend using a 1000W converter.

  • Is there a video link showing connections to your most recent frequency converter for the 2.2 spindle (type:YL600-2S-2K20)? Cheers.

    I am currently making a video right now. I will post the video in a few days.

    Additional Information:
    You guys rock!

    Additional Information:
    Don’t judge us until you see the video!! Haha.

    Additional Information:
    Here is the video that I promised. The video covers the main wiring of the VFD and spindle.



    I will do another video on the parameters.

  • HOW DO YOU SETUP THE SPINDLE INVERTER VFD?

    Change PD001 Source of Run Commands to '1'
    Change PD005 Max operating frequency to 400hz
    Change PD004 base frequency to 400hz
    Change PD003 Main frequency to 400hz
    Change PD006 Intermediate frequency to 2.5
    Change PD008 max voltage to 220v
    Change PD009 Intermediate voltage to 15v
    Change PD010 Min voltage to 8
    Change PD011 frequency lower limit to >100hz (120hz to start)
    Change PD142 7 Amps
    Change PD143 2
    Change PD144 3000

    Note: PD001 had to be changed back to 0 to allow for keypad control.
    Note2: I had to reverse U and V to get the spindle to go forward in FWD. (reverse any two wires, u&v or w&v for example)

  • Could I safely use a 2200w 220 to 110 converter and uninteruptable power supply with my 2.2kw inverter and spindle?

    Yes, you can use a 220 to 110 step down transformer to provide power to your 2.2kw VFD and spindle.

  • wiring schematic from frequency converter to plug for 2.2 KW router for plug that has 1,2,3,4 on it.

    There will be three coil connections between the VFD (Variable Frequency Drive) to the spindle. These connections are 1, 2 and 3. U -> Pin #3, V -> Pin #1, and W -> Pin #2. The pin number 4 is not connected on the spindle, but we recommend that you connect PE (Protective Earth Ground) from the VFD to the spindle. This wire can be connected to one of the screws on the connector on the spindle.

  • wire size to connect Frequency converter to 2.2 KW Router?

    We use 16 AWG (American Wire Gauge) to connect the 2.2kW Spindle to the VFD (Variable Frequency Drive also called the inverter. Since there are three coils, the 2.2kW (2200 watt) spindle will draw 10 amps total or 3.33 amps per coil. 16 AWG will be more than enough capacity to handle 3.33 amps.

  • How to display RPM instead of frequency on the VFD? I have the 2.2kv 110 volt spindle and inverter.

    There is a button on the front of the VFD that will cycle through RPM, Freq, and a few other readings. If there is a >> button on your VFD, that will work. If there is a mode button on your VFD, that should works as well.

    Additional Information:
    There is a >> disc button but it does not cycle through the display modes.

    Additional Information:
    Is there a parameter setting to make this button work to cycle thru the display modes?

    Additional Information:
    setting the starting rpm

    Additional Information:
    the vfd will not start the motor

    Additional Information:
    Any progress on this? I have the same issue.

    Additional Information:
    What model is your VFD?

    Additional Information:
    Mine is a YL620-G-5.5Kw

    Additional Information:
    That model will not be able to show RPM. You will be able to show the frequency, which can be used to determine the RPM. RPM equals the Frequency x 60.

    Additional Information:
    There is an Icon for RPM at the top of the display I cannot cycle through the different options to see the RPM

    Additional Information:
    At the top of my control panel is has 6 different lights which indicate what your seeing. in order from left to right they are COM, ALM, DISP, RUN, Hz, RPM I have seen the ALM light up on initial set up but that was fixes with a parameter change. The run light shows up when i turn the spindle on and and it is running. I am however not able to get any of the other lights to show or to get the RPMs to display

    Additional Information:
    If you do see an RPM light on the display, that panel sticker may be a sticker used for many types of VFDs and the RPM is not used. There is parameter: P00.24 which allows you to pick what to display. The choices a
    re:
    0: Display current target frequency. This will display your knobs, potentiometer, setting, not the actual spindle frequency.
    1: Display electric machinery run frequency. This will display the actual frequency that the VFD is currently sending to the spindle.
    2: Display electric machinery run current: this will display the current the spindle is currently drawing.
    3: Display input AC voltage. Self explanatory.
    4: Display mother line voltage. This will display the actual voltage at the input.
    5: Display output voltage. This will display the voltage at the UVW terminals for the spindle.
    6: Display speed paragraph number SPx. I believe this displays which frequency is being selected (P07.00 to P07.07, or 1 to 8 respectively).
    7: Display inverter temperature. This is the temp of the VFD, self explanatory.
    8: Display input signal X1-X3/output signal. This simply shows the inputs/outputs associated with the external terminals.
    9: Display user variable. This one I have not delved into, so it may be something to look into.
    10: Display user count value. Same, this one could be useful.
    11: Display temporary debugging variable. Haven't tried this one, so I can't inform of any useful information but it won't pertain to this subject anyway.
    12: Display automatic multisegment run step and time. I haven't delved into this one either, but it won't show RPM.
