    Sounds like the way to go, but I need to first get this machine running to evaluate it's mechanical condition and the amount of work needed. The non-labeled wiring in the control cabinet looks like a birds nest sprinkled with 40 years of dust so I might give up at some point and go the PLC route. How hard are they to program?

I listened for clicks for the solenoids and I then connected all of the switches to the PLC. I closed a limit switch and recorded the position on the PLC. After renaming the switches and solenoids to my preference and some simple coding, I am running.

    Hi Mark

    I tried to send you a PM, but it doesnt show up in my Sent folder.
    It would be really great, if i could get a copy of the manual too.

    I will also show up some picture from my machine later! =)

    Many thanks for your reply

    Hi Mark, Hi all

    I have uploaded a picture of my machine


    Tried to run it with a default T15 Power Cord.
    The power security switches went of if the main Pump reaches 5bar oil pressure... was clear.

    So i have actually one T15 3 Phases each 230V/16A at my house. Now I check for a bigger one.
    Did you know what is required to run this 15S machines in general? Or what do you use.

    I want avoid to put in new power installation in a small size.

    Many thanks
    Patrick

    Patrick,

    Late getting back to you. Work has has been full on since getting back from Switzerland.
    Couple things to check. the breaker supplying power, what is the number is it "B" or "C" or "D" rated breaker.

    You have 230v / 16A power which is just over 6 kW, I would expect it to start the machine whitout the
    heaters working.

    From the name plate rating your motor was originally wired for 380 volt input. Do you know if it has been
    rewired to 230 volt?

    My machine is not wired.

    Best Regards,

    Mark

    I don't suppose somebody could take a picture of the side of the machine (behind the control cabinet) and label roughly what each visible solenoid does? Would be greatly appreciated. I have a manual (missing the front page) but it doesn't seem that useful, particularly for a PLC installation. Won't fit in my sheet feed scanner either - I'd cut it up but it sounds like Holycross already has digitizing sorted.

    Nevermind, I'm a dummy. Hoping to finish this up by the end of the year. If I forget to post again in the future give me a buzz - hopefully I can put a BOM, source code for the controller and diagrams up.


    S1 - Close mould [high pressure clamp adjust]
    S2 - Lock mould [high pressure clamp adjust]

    S3 - Open injection nozzle
    S4 - Injection unit (screw?) forward
    S5 - Injection unit (screw?) backward

    S6 - Mould open [high or low pressure clamp adjust]

    S15 - Ejector
    S16 - Decompression (hydraulic screw retraction... this was in German, I think it's referring to the ejector - will have to see)

    S17 - Mould close [low pressure clamp adjust]

    S18 - Injection pressure adjust (toggles between main and secondary injection pressure)

    ---
    S1 closes the clamp with more speed/force than S17. Whichever you use depends on the amount of clamp pressure you want.

    Re: Manual

    I would like to get the manual also if possible. My email address is brian@eamanufacturing.com.

    I am looking at a machine and trying to figure out if it needs three phase power or not. Motor label just says 222/380. It also says 3~mot. and I can't find a translation from German. I don't know if that means 3 phase motor or something else.
