Some more progress...
Got the cabinet mounted on the side of the mill...
Also cut and welded up the pendant workstation and trial-fitted it on its suspension arm...
Not all the holes will have buttons but thought it best to cut spares and fit blanking plugs.
Slightly concerned about the strain on the 10mm stud holding the arm on the rear of the ram but it seems ok.
You thinking of making a flood enclosure for the mill? It made my life so much better when I did.www.emvioeng.com
Stocking more goodies than just Smoothsteppers
I think it will need a chip control enclosure but I'm hoping to run mist coolant only.
You are not putting the output from the VFD onto 3 separate switches are you ?
If one trips you will fry the VFD.
VFD has to go to motor with no breaks.John S -
No, no, no ;)
The output from the vfd goes direct to the terminal bar and then to the motor.
The three contactors are:- VFD 1 supply, VFD 2 supply and Servo's supply.
The VFD's are for main motor spindle and aux high-speed spindle, only one will run at any time.
I think having a terminal bar in between motor and VFD is acceptable.

You show pin 14 from the XPS as going to relay 1, relay 2 and the coil of K3 but you are also showing K3 across Y1 and Y2 ?John S -
