CNC Control System with Teco Servo System

Summary of video: This overview video walks you through setting up MachMotion’s CNC Control System with a Teco Motor and Servo Drive. The video begins with a review of the included components, then a demonstration of the connections, and concludes with using the Mach3 software to confirm functionality.

Video Transcript:

0:06 Hello, I am Carl Eldridge with MachMotion. I am here to show you how to set up a Teco servo system to our CNC control. This is what you'll receive in a 50-inch pound Teco kit. Right here we have the mounting arm, the CNC control, a Teco servo drive, a servo motor, and 3 cables.

0:36 Begin by connecting the motor power. I'll connect it to the servo drive. Follow the labels on the servo drive. Then connect the encoder feedback to the motor, then connect the other end to the servo drive.

1:41 Now we are ready to connect the drive power. Right here, we have already connected some jumpers as shown in the documentation.

2:34 Now we're done with that part. Now, turn the CNC control around and remove the back cover as we have done here. Connect the control cable to the servo drive and the other end to the CNC control.

3:02 The MachMotion control comes standard with the ability to control six axis, plus spindle control and spindle feedback. Right here are the terminals to connect all your IO, including limit switches and other auxiliary functions.

3:25 Now we're ready to turn on the CNC control and test for motion. Turn on the key switch on the top right-hand side and wait until the control comes up. Our control comes pre-configured so all you have to do is open up the Mach3 software. After it comes up, release the e-stop button, and press reset. Now we are ready to test for motion.

4:04 We have motion. You can also jog using the keys on the keyboard. That is how easy it is to connect a Teco servo system to one of our CNC controls. Thank you very much for your time. I hope you have a great day
