    Gecko 540 controller and VFD

    I have a Gecko 540 Controller with Huanyang HY02D223B VFD. I have all the wires for it and my VFD hooked up except 2. The document for the Gecko has ports 7,8, and 9 for the VFD. 9 is easy enough, 10v to 10v on VFD. I am not sure where to hook 7 and 8 on the VFD. ((I am seriously horrible at electronics)) Any help is greatly apprciated.

    Here is a link for connecting the FWD command directly, you can by pass using the relay in the attached G540 DWG.
    https://www.cnczone.com/forums/spind...equipment.html
    The analogue command is also shown in the manual below.
    The 3 you are concerned with on the VFD is ACM (common) , V1 (analogue command signal, and +10v (power).

    AL where is the Terminal on the Huanyang that you can connect 24v to or has 24v that is shown on the drawing, there is no such connection on the VFD Drive a lot of VFD Drives do have this, but the Huanyang does not

    Re: Gecko 540 controller and VFD

    That was not intended to show an external connection, but the internal supply of the VFD, as just about all VFD's do, where some also bring it out, although generally this is when they offer the Sink or Source option.. .
    Agree a little misleading in this case, maybe I will modify the DWG.
    Actually Huanyang uses 12v DC and bring it out on the EV terminal.IIRC.
    The DCM is also common for EV, IPV, and P24v supplies.
