    Re: RF wireless tool set model DT02

    jon,
    The DT02 is easy to wire up. The power is anything between 5V and 24V, I used 5V. You connect 5V to the RED and the common to the BLACK. The other two leads just tie to common and one of...
  2. Re: Multicam MG Series 304 - conversion to run with Mach3?

    You really might want to consider the Centroid Acorn to convert this old system to something state of the art that is stable as a rock. The controller is $299 US, and the PRO software is $139 US.

    Re: RF wireless tool set model DT02

    Yeah, guess that is what we should have all expected. Have not taken my DT02 apart because it is still working. However, some of the other clone touch off sensors that are copies of expensive...

    Re: RF wireless tool set model DT02

    Good idea with the micro switch. What I am trying to say is this DT02 unit does not get initialized after you power the unit up until you press the silver touch off disc. If you press that disc...

    Re: RF wireless tool set model DT02

    djcregan,
    I also have the DT02 touch off tool sensor. I do not think this has anything to do with your Omni machine. That sensor once powered up never initializes unless you press the silver touch...

    Re: 500w chinese spindle interference

    OK, yes you will need a braided shield cable to help with the spindle noise. The pulsating DC acts much like AC due to all the pulses turning it on and off very quickly. The shield of the new cable...

    Re: 500w chinese spindle interference

    WOW, that is scary. Also why it is good practice to select the colors of the wires carefully. RED is typically +DC voltage, BLACK is typically -DC, Colors like RED or BLACK could also be AC lines....

    Re: 500w chinese spindle interference

    The GROUND wire when connected to V- wire trips the breaker? Really? We are trying to make the negative side of the 12V power supply at the same potential as ground. You have 12V going to the CNC...

    Re: 500w chinese spindle interference

    OK, I want you to measure between that GREEN wire which is GROUND and the BLUE wire which is V-. Is that infinite? If so lets run a quick experiment. Take a new wire and connect the GREEN WIRE to...

    One more thing lets check the CNC controller side with a measurement. Check between the common - negative side to ground for power going to the CNC controller. Is that 12V common connected to...

    Re: 500w chinese spindle interference

    Yeah, the pulsated DC is causing the meter to get goofy. OK, let check something else. Set your meter back to ohms with everything turned off and unplugged from the wall. Now measure from the...

    Re: 500w chinese spindle interference

    Thanks for that last photo that helps. The label with 220V right above that connector had me confused. OK, so you have 220V attached to the far two right terminal where it says Power. You have...

    Re: 500w chinese spindle interference

    OK, let me ask a few questions.

    You have three leads for the 220V coming into the Spindle controller. RED, Y ELLOW, BLACK. 220V is normally provided with two wires, L1,L2. Are one of these...

    Re: 500w chinese spindle interference

    No, leave the power off and get an ohm meter. You want to measure between the motor output common terminal the negative side to the spindle controller and see if you get zero ohms. Most likely this...

    Your issue is EMI (electromagnetic interference). The most common reason is improper grounding and the lack of shielded VFD cabling. The cable that runs from the VFD to the Spindle needs to be...
