    The gentleman I purchased the router from sent me this link.

    This company sells Desk CNC so they should be a big help if I have questions setting this up & it appears the cables are included. Unless someone's sees an issue with this card.

    That would be a better choice, as it's made to work with your DeskCNC board.

    My current router table is set up as 120v, with the VID more than likely going to be a 220v so the original owner told me I'd need to convert it over to 220v using the included 220v coil & I'd need to purchase a new 220v power supply.

    Can anyone tell me what power supply i need to purchase? Is it just a standard 220v power supply ( if there is such a thing) or would it need to be "Desk CBC compatible?

    Default Re: My router went today on my old DIY table need advise

    That would be 220V (or 240V) AC from your outlet.

    Yes I would bet it is 240v the MTC manual mentions 220v but I guess that's internal huh?

    No, It's designed to run on 220V. In most cases, 240V is in the allowable range.

    I'm assuming that it runs directly from your AC power. I've never seen a machine with a 220V power supply.

    So does my router table will plug into 110v building A/C then the coil and power supply inside the control box convert the machine power to 220v?
    Thank you

    I have no idea what components you have, so can't really give you an answer.

    I'll have to talk to Bosch Rexroth again. Steve told me the Bosch won't work with PWM.

    Thank you
    Apart from the panel, it can be controlled by analog inputs 0...20 mA, 4...20 mA, 0...10 V, 0...5 V, 2…10 V or digitally via RS485 (Modbus and Profibus) and pulse input. PWM means normally an analog voltage generated using pulse wide modulated (PWM) signal, which definitely works and have many options in the Bosch, more than most others I have seen. Why do you want to control the frequency via PWM and not via any of the available possibilities?

    Thank you
    I don't know any VFD which has a transformer inside. The one I have works with AC voltages between 200V and 240V. In your case you need to connect the VFD to two phases. If you only have a single phase and a neutral it will not work. I suggest you as a local electrician who can check your home AC system. Even if you live in a 110VAC home you may still have two phases in your home, but you have to find and connect so that you can use them in the VFD. Don't start experimenting since you lack the knowledge to do it, contact an electrician who can easily check out your home and connect the proper socket where you can plug in your VFD.
