    Have you tied setting a frequency by twiddling the little knob then using the VFD on/off button. It could simply be wired to the Start/stop inputs.? or Set it to On then try the Start button as it could be acting as a disable for when changing tools.?

    So many possibilities and don't let Clive fool you.? His balls are solid Crystal and they work fine, he's just not a psychic ...
    -use common sense, if you lack it, there is no software to help that.

    Have a quick read and work out how to read the F-parameters (probably SET and Up/Down keys). Read-out (but don't change anything!) the F001, F002, F044, F045, F046, F047, F048 and F049 parameters and report back. Provided that the manual is appropriate for the VFD that will tell us how the spindle on/off and speed is controlled (F001/002) and how 6 discrete inputs wired to the VFD are set to operate (i.e. if they can be used for control).

    Also, on the VFD (the bit that connects via a ribbon to the display panel on the front of the enclosure) - there's obviously 220VAC provided into the VFD, and three high-current cables going to the VFD connector, but there's also Black, Red and White cables running under a cover - can you remove the cover and photograph where these are connected to the VFD?, there should be two terminal strips under the cover with the cables connected to individual terminals - that will absolutely help to understand any automation presented to the VFD.

    tried every button and not a peep out of it , I have tightened every connector but still no joy

    You can see along the top-row of the green terminals, the single black wire is connected to GND - that's your 0V reference.

    The next row, the multi-core cable (black sheath) - red core is connected to P12, The Black connected to AI1, and white connected to GND - This is the 12V (red), Gnd (white) and Analogue voltage (1) - AI1 - clearly intended for speed control. So, where's the other end of that multicore cable plugged in?

    The last, single core, red core is connected to X1 - Programmable input 1 (who's function is bound by the function code F044, as I asked for above), I expect this is bound by F044 to Forward (2). This is your Spindle On/Off control - so where is the other end of this wire?

    (apologies - the other images - there's lots of black and red wires - unclear to follow.

    BUT, what I'm inclined to say is the control box is configured to operate the spindle under Mach3 control.

    If you have X, Y, Z axis working correctly - can you screenshot the Mach3 Ports/Pins Output and Spindle pages.

    Really stupid to be asking right now. Have you tried issuing a "M3 S5000" command in the MDI on Mach3? What happens? Try with the VFD switch in both positions.

    Last question - where do the two wires on the VFD rocker switch go to?

    So, Ports&Pins - the PWM output for the spindle is on this page, under the "Step Pin" column (and to the right the Step Port). This appears to be set to the same as the active Axis A - which gives me pause to think that the pin settings are wrong. First I'd disabled Axis A, unless you have a 4th axis on the router. At least then there's no conflict.

    The next point is to try to find which of the output pins are mapped to the PWM output on the control board. The possible output pins on a parallel port - and I know you have a USB interface but these often mimic the parallel port for compatibility reasons - anyway, possible output pins for a parallel port are:

    1 - ?
    2 - X Step
    3 - Y Step
    4 - Z Step
    5 - A Step - also Spindle Step (PWM)
    6 - X Dir
    7 - Y Dir - also Spindle Dir (unused function)
    8 - Z Dir
    9 - A Dir
    10 - ?
    14 - ?
    16 - ?
    17 - ?

    On the Spindle page - you have the M3/M4 relays set to Output #1, I can't see in the images above the Pins/Ports for Output #1 - if you can screen shot that? We're trying to find/set the pin to control the spindle on/off...

    You've not answered the question as to where the single red wire went to - I'm expecting to the control board - if so, is there any printing on the board that could match the PIN numbers above? If there's no indication then there's a limit to the possible options - as above. I think you should be able to toggle the FOR LED on the VFD controller with M3/M5 on the MDI if you configure OUTPUT #1 with the correct pin number.

    That'll leave the PWM pin - we'll save that for later (the wife's getting narky).
