I am new to the forum and could use some information on a VFD. My electronics knowledge is basic.
I have just purchased a Huanyang HY02D223B VFD of EBay and am having some problems. What I am trying to do is set this up to my 3 phase Bridgeport clone. I am just trying to use this to power my mill. I have done something similar on a lathe and mill using TECO VFDs. This thing sure ainít no TECO and may not work for my application.
This is what I would like to do: I would like to have a small, wired remote control with a on/ off switch , a forward/ reverse switch and a pot to control the speed mounted on the mill. Easy to do on my TECOs. I have wired up the Huanyang and it will run my mill from the VFD. The problem is that I have to manually input the frequency and other parameters and if I cut the power, all I have inputed is lost. The VFD doesnít seem to have any memory. The manual I have is not very helpful and I am lost.
Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks for responding Mac. That is the same manual I have, but my key pad is different.
The manual shows 8 buttons:
My key pad has 8 buttons, but they are as follows (see attached file)
>> (2 arrows pointing right) possibly the shift key
Maybe I am keying things in wrong. This is the sequence I have been putting in:
The VFD is on I press PRGM the display goes to Pd000. I press the Up Arrow until I reach Pd013. I then press SET. The display shows END. Then go on to the next parameter and repeat the process.
Is there something I am doing wrong?
