Thread: Sanyo Denki stepper motors
Shields are only connected at one end of the cable and the earth is connected to the mains earth.
Thanks for the doc
Ok, ripped every thing out of my control box and tested the drivers.
I have 100VAC on the earth and 230V on R+ of the motor connection.( the 3 drives)
Is that with the earth connected?
If it is, I'd be checking the earth on the socket you're using to power it.
No just the P&N.
Im taking the measurement from the mains earth to the earth pin on the driver

Unless the case is grounded, you will nearly always get some kind of voltage reading between the case and ground. If you put any bit of metal near something that is either switching power or containing an active inductor, and you will get power generated in that bit of metal.
The case has to be properly grounded to ensure that power is dealt with safely, and to minimise noise transmission.
All grounds should come back to a central star point, and only be connected at one end to prevent ground loops.
