1. MOUNT THE INVERTER BOX on the column of the mill, preferably on the
back where it is clear of chips and coolant. Wherever it is mounted, check that it is positioned so the Inverter-to-Operator
Control Box cable length is enough to allow mounting the Operator Control Box on the left side of the head, and the Motor
cable can reach the motor connection box (Figure. 1). ¼-20 button head screws are supplied for mounting the box.
2. MOUNT THE OPERATOR CONTROL BOX on the left side of the head as shown in Fig. 1.
THE PROXIMITY SWITCH AND BELTS AND PULLEYS..
For a step pulley head refer to Figs. 2 and 3.
For a variable pitch pulley head refer to Figs.4 and 5.
4. REMOVE THE OLD MOTOR REVERSING SWITCH and cable. The
old switch will not be used. Instead, the motor rotation will be controlled by the switch on the Operator Control Box.
5. CONNECT THE INVERTER-BOX-TO-MOTOR CABLE directly to the motor. DO NOT route it through the old reversing switch
since it is not needed and it can cause damage to the inverter. If the connection from the inverter to the motor is opened
while the inverter is operating, the inverter will be damaged.
6. MOUNT THE LIMIT SWITCH ASSEMBLY in place of the
existing quill travel scale. Insert the EXPANDABLE PIN in the quill knob hole and tighten the setscrew to lock it in
place. If the pin is too loose a fit in the hole, use the split sleeve packed with the pin to take up the excess clearance.
Adjust the limit switch bracket close enough to the Expandable Pin so it actuates the switches as the quill travels up and
down. The fixed upper switch must be actuated when the quill is at its upper limit of travel, and the adjustable switch must
actuate at the desired lower limit of quill travel.
7. CONNECT THE ELECTRICAL SUPPLY to the inverter box. The
electrical wires should be fed through the access hole on the bottom of the box. Connect the wires to the terminal strip next
to the access hole.
M0910-PLUS VFD OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
POWER UP. Put the Direction Switch at the OFF position. Release the E-Stop switch by rotating it CW until
it pops out. Momentarily depress the E-Stop Reset button, which clears the stop condition and turns off the red alarm
CAUTION! Always put the Direction Switch at OFF before releasing
the E-Stop and
pressing the E-Stop Reset. The purpose of the E-Stop Reset is to prevent
from starting up unexpectedly when the E-Stop is released and the Direction
has been left at FWD or REV. THE MOTOR WILL START IMMEDIATELY
AFTER THE E-STOP RESET IS PUSHED IF THE DIRECTION CONTROL
SWITCH IS IN THE FWD OR REV
START the motor by putting the Direction Switch in the FWD
or REV position. Set the speed by rotating the speed control knob. This is a ten turn adjuster. Read the spindle RPM
on the digital display. If the motor is rotating in the wrong direction, shut off the power to the equipment, then interchange
any two line wires in the motor connection box. Changing the line wires to the inverter will not change the direction.
To use the speed presets, press the pushbutton associated with the speed you will like to "preset".
When you press the pushbutton, the blue L.E.D. will light up on the selected preset. Ensure that the Direction Switch
is either in the FWD or REV position. Adjust the control knob located next to the preset selected to set the spindle
rpm you want. You can repeat this procedure for the remaining presets. Now all you have to do to select a preset
speed is press the pushbutton switch associated with the speed you previously set. The active preset is indicated by
the blue LED on the pushbutton switch. Whenever the unit is powered down it will default to the MAIN CONTROL upon power
up. You may then select any other preset speed you previously set.
STOP the motor by
putting the direction switch to the OFF position. The motor will dynamically brake to a stop.
STOP is done by pressing the red E-Stop button on the control box. This causes the motor to quickly come to a
stop and disables the FWD/REV control. To restore operation, you must first switch the FWD/REV switch to the OFF position,
then release the E-Stop button by rotating it clockwise ¼ turn, then you must press the E-Stop reset button.
After pressing the E-Stop reset button the red LED should then go out and allow you to resume normal operation.
AUTO-TUNE: If you have installed the optional Baldor motor, you can skip the Auto-tuning procedure
on the next page. If you are using the original motor (or any other motor) , do the Auto-tune procedure to ensure optimum
TAPPING is enabled by putting the TAPPING ENABLE switch in the "1" position, and
the blue LED next to the switch will illuminate to indicate tap mode. This activates the micro switches that are mounted on
the bracket next to the quill down stop assembly. The upper micro switch is at a fixed position and it's function is to set
the spindle rotation back to its initial setting. To set the depth at which you would like the spindle to change direction:
1.Move the lower switch down to the lower limit of travel.
2.Start the spindle in a forward rotation by
switching the Direction Switch to FWD. you can set the spindle rpm to a low speed for this setup.
3. Now manually lower the quill to the depth you require the spindle to change direction, then lock it in place so is will
4. Loosen the thumbscrews on the lower micro switch and move it up just until the pin on the
quill knob makes contact to actuate the switch and cause the spindle rotation to reverse. At this point lock the
micro switch in place by tightening the thumbscrews.
Return the quill to the top position, which is done after
each tapping operation, and you are ready to begin tapping.
