  1. SETTING UP G540 TO CONTROL X2 SPINDLE SPEED

    2 Comments by albert_chuy Published on 01-31-2018 02:34 AM
    Hello I want to learn how to wire a X2 mini mill 44991 for spindle control using the G540 control board
    I have investigated for days and all the leads point towards the following link (http : // pminmo. com/ g540- vfd)
    which is a page that has been down for years.

    Does anyone still have a copy of the information that use to be on that link?

    Regards to all and thank you.

    Well its been a while, I have not been able to find the information that use to be on the (http : // pminmo. com/ g540- vfd) page
    So I started "experimenting" (I have no clue what am doing)
    So I wired directly from my G540 to the X2 board the fallowing

    P1 > Pin 9
    P2 > Pin 8
    P3 > Pin 7

    I did the fallowing setup on mach 3:

    Spindle enable step pin 14 step port 1
    disable spindle delay check
    use spindle motor output check
    PWM control check
    freq. 50
    min pwm 20%

    spindle pulley min 0 max 2500
    spindle f5 window 2500

    Results:
    My spindle is constantly ON I can turn it off and I cant change the speed on it.

    I achieve something today. I still have the issue with the Spindle always being ON but if I do a M3 S100 it slows down and if I do a M3 S2500 it speeds up.
    I did try from 0 to 2500 but I never really notice a difference in between speeds other than S100 and S2500
