    4th Axis Inhibit wiring

    Does anyone have instructions or a schematic on where to install and how to wire the 4th axis inhibit board?
    This is for an older DC machine and running a DC 4th axis.

    Thanks,
    Richard

    Perfect, that fixed me right up, NOT. All posts are nothing but SPAM!

    I found the wiring schematic. Now, can someone show me where is this board typically mounted when it comes from the factory?

    Have a look at those pix. See if you can find anything remotely close to what you need to see.

    Thanks, that was the first thing I did before posting. No luck.

    Go to "FADALCNC.COM" click on "Technical docs". In the lower left you'll see the Header for Wiring diagrams. Click on 4th axis servo options. Page 5 shows you the wiring diagram for the inhibit curcuit.
    In the "Technical tips" section, look under R for rotary and there is a pdf that explains the Inhibit curcuit and where it locates in the cabinet.

    Re: 4th Axis Inhibit wiring

    Got it, thanks. The left side of the cabinet is where all my Renishaw components are mounted. I ended up putting it in the big empty area to the right side of the power supply. I know it seemed like a trivial issue but I kind of like keeping things where they go.

    It is funny that out of all the dozens and dozens of control panel pictures out there, I did not find one that had this inhibit circuit. I take it this was something that was added later as an improvement?
