    Sorry for the late reply, I didn't get a notification.

    Since I posted I found a little bug with my previous statement. It would control the RPM fine, but it would not turn on by itself unless I had turned it on manually on the controller. Discovered that the next time I used it... It would turn off simply by setting the rpm to 0.. Which was at least better than before when it would not be controlled by Mach3 at all
    With a little help from the supplier I've now got everything sorted and it both turns on and controls rpm from Mach3. Everything is working as intended, as far as I can tell.
    D032 is back to 1, and I had to change one setting in Mach3.

    Here are my current settings that work for me. I should add that my VFD is a PRT-E750, not a 1500.
    Code:
    0	50.00
    1	0
    2	00.00

    I've also attached screenshots of my Mach3 settings.

    Hope this helps!

    They are the strangest VFD settings I have ever seen, to run a spindle like this, can you take a photo of your spindle, and do you have the full RPM range 6,000 to 24,000 RPM

    These are the settings it came with, except for D032. As far as I can tell it has the full range. I will add that it does take a while to get up to speed, I'd say close to 10 seconds to spin up to 20k from 0.
    The spindle is an 800W 65 mm watercooled one. Here's the ebay listing that has all the specs, it looks exactly as on the pictures.

    Great !!! it takes 10s to get up to speed, because it is set at 10s , Parameter D011 you can adjust this, it will fault out though, if you go too low with this setting

    Does it get to the full speed of 24,000 RPM

    Does anybody have a copy of the PRT-750 vfd manual? If so is there anty chance you can forward me a copy as I'm having a hell of a time setting up my 3040 which has this controller & the 800w water cooled spindle motor.

    We are having the same issue snq! What setting in Mach3 did you change to overcome the problem with the D032?

    Any new news on this? I have the same VFD and have entered all of the numbers listed and all I get now is flashing digits "00.0" on the VFD screen. It does not respond to manual or Mach3

    Try pressing the run button on the vfd, the 000s should stop flashing, I've got my D032 pin set to 0 & have to press the run button every time I turn the controller on, I don't know if this is normal but at least I'm up & running!
    Hope this helps

    Yeah, I tried that. I think I am close, it will stop flashing when I click the spindle control in Mach, by it will not turn either from Mach or by hand . I just dont know which setting is off. I tried matching SNQ setting that were posted with no luck as of yet. There were a couple of the setting that I could not get to match his, it would not let me zero them out. I dont remember which ones.

    Check that D001=1 if at 0 then it will not let you change the Parameters
