    EZ-path 1 wiring for 240v 460v presently

    Hello, I recently purchased a 1996 EZ-PATH I from a trade school in Mass. The input voltage is wired for 460v. I want to change the input voltage to 240v 3 phase. There is a transformer in the top of the control panel that has input voltages listed on the front plate and specific wire and jumper locations. There is also a smaller transformer for the computer power supply which has volteges and locations specified. I don't want to burn up this machine and need some advice before proceeding. I don't know, Do I just put the wires in the specified locations and attach the 240 power or does the spindle motor also have to be rewired or replaced. I'm currently installing a 125amp sub panel and digital 20hp 3 phase converter. If anyone has experience with this situation please lend a helping hand. I would really appreciate it.

    Thank You: Stan Sawyer

    I am currently doing the same thing. I have rewired the jumpers to the 230 v input on the transformers and the machine boots right up and homed out. The spindle motor however does not seem to be correct. It runs very slow. So now what, do I reach way in their and pull the electrical cover off the spindle motor and hopefully their will be a diagram.
    What did you end up doing?

    Does anyone have a schematic or pic of how to wire the transformer at tailstock. Panel on machine states 480 and all I have is 240 3 phase.
