    Which Glentek Equivalent to Fadal AMP-065

    I know Glentek made the Brushless Amplifiers for Fadal. I just purchased a TRM. I would like to find out which current "stock" Glentek Amplifier is closest to the FADAL AMP-065 used on the X, Y, Z axis. I'd really like to find the amplifier manual.
    The machine was made in 2003, Giddings and Lewis era. Which control does this machine have? I has sat unused for MANY years. I purchased it from an estate. Will be towards the end of September before I can move it here.

    When I opened up the electrical cabinet, I was looking around for a VFD, none, then I found an AMP-065, SMA9615INV-2 controls the spindle Interesting.

    I DO realize this was an entry level machine designed for the home shop/garage.

    Hoping a FADAL Tech pokes his head in here with some info.

    Thanks in advance,
    Marty

    The Amp that runs the spindle is based on the same amp that does the x,y,z, but has different programming and a bigger heat sink for the spindle. the x,y,z amp-0065 can not run the spindle. if your looking for one for the axis ebay has one https://www.ebay.com/itm/Fadal-4020-...MAAOSw9E5bzx3t

    Those amps will be hard to find , Glentek does not make them anymore.

    Thanks,
    I purchased a like new TRM. Fully functional.
    Since I beta test for Centroid, and this control seems to be a bit of an oddity, I am going to remove the FADAL Control on the TRM, all AMP drives, All servo motors and cables and refit the machine with a new control. I will install a Yaskawa or a GS3 Sensorless Vector Drive from Automationdirect.com so it has a traditional VFD.

    Will show the machine operating before I disassemble it. Then list the parts on Ebay. Project won't start until the end of September.
