Retrofit a chinese Syntec CNC machine?

Postby zohozer » 18 Mar 2015, 02:01

Hello, I have at work a new Chinese Syntec CNC machine and I'm not happy at all with this machine because of total lack of documentation and technical support. The machine has brushless servo motors controlled by Yaskawa servo-drives (SGDV-5R5A01A) and a 9KW HSD spindle with VFD.

I'm thinking to retrofit this machine, I mean I want to change the original controller and software with a MK3 controller board and software.

I can have support from Planet-CNC side to realize this project? I didn't find any email address for support on this site.

This machine could be retrofitted to our controller, but please check if your servo drivers support STEP/DIRECTION inputs.

Finally I found the manual from the Yaskawa SGDV-5R5A01A.

http://support-omron.fr/pdf/SIEPC800000 ... _Motor.pdf

Interface: Analog voltage and pulse train reference, rotational servomotor

I can't find anywere into the manual explicit reference about Step/Direction input but are there listed three operation modes, from which Position can be the equivalent for Step/Direction?

Page 43: Control Mode: Speed, Position, Torque.

Please help.

Page: 142 ; Pulse train reference.

From the looks of it, it does support step/dir controler from host controller (in you case PULS/SIGN)
