Hi all, My lenze speed controller on my Boxford 260 has finally died, would anybody be able to suggest a suitable replacement?

It's in the states unfortunately

Sprint do a good range, but the omly one i could find on ebay is a 4amp 3600, which will probably be too small

the sprint 1200 should be right for your boxford, or the 1600

Its hard to look for alternatives if you dont know what it really is, so i knew someone on here would know. It went bang in the middle of a job luckily it was moving in the safe Z so i was lucky the part is saved, i took the lid off and a capicitor had spat its guts out, ive replaced the cap checked the fuse but it remains on the critical list with no sign of life at all.... Im assuming it is a VFD of some description..

I think there are repair services out there for the lenze but i suspect it would be cheaper to buy the spring for sure..

How many wires go to the motor?

If it's just a DC motor, then one of the many KB Electronics boards would most likely do, and they're not too expensive. Axis controls are a UK distributor, and are reasonably priced (i.e. they don't rip the p*** with currency conversion as a lot of others do with US imports!)

i will take a look when i take the unit out to be repaired, thanks for that...
