Thread: Dc servo driver

    Hi all,

    I bought 3 dc servo drivers off eBay and cannot really find any information on the case to get any further detailed information :(

    I have the matching motors for the drives which are wired into blocks which slot in so they are no problem.

    This leaves 7 terminal screw blocks.. I've done a test using an old atx psu powering it up using 12v and the motors ran. The supply was connected to terminals 5 and 7 so I assume that 6 is for a ground. Terminals 1,2 and 3,4 are respectively shorted with bits of wire.

    so can anyone help me figure out what 1,2 and 3,4 are and how I may control it?

    I can add a picture tomorrow if that will help.

    many thanks,

    Is there and make or model number on the drives?
    CNC routing and prototyping services

    Nothing at all, I'm led to believe that they are made by Japan servo co. ltd since they match the motors but from the limited information on the motors I cannot find anything more about them...

    These are a couple pics of the drives in-case my description was a little off

    Silly thought, don't suppose it has an encoder? G.

    Hi G,

    I do believe the motors have encoders attached, I can add pictures of the motors tonight If it helps!

    Might be worth removing the cover from one of the drivers and having a look to see if there is any lettering on the circuit board which might give a clue.

    Hi Sam, I only mentioned the encoder in case that was the answer to the extra wires! G.

    Hi G,

    the encoder is connected using a push in connection. I can only guess that 1,2 and 3,4 can somehow be used to control the motion. I guess that when one set is not shorted the motor will run in reverse leaving the other one as a step input? I will update the thread later when I've tried!

    Hi all,

    I've had another tinker and these combinations will start the motor spinning (always same direction):

    Pins shorted:
    1 , 4
    1 , 2 and 3 , 4

    I have a multimeter If there are any readings that may help work out the pin configuration.
