0:07 Today I'm going to be showing you how to wire up a Teco Servo Axis. A Teco driver’s motors are our most affordable Servo line. Here we have the control and encoder cables. This is the motor power cable and the motor encoder cable. This is the drive and our 750 watt Teco motor. All right, first thing I'm going to do is connect the control cable between the Apollo III and the drive. This is the CN1 connector. It goes in the big plug there, and we've got our control cable and our encoder feedback. All right, next thing we're going to do is connect the power cable to the motor.

0:57 It's just a simple screw on connector here. Here we have the power plugs coming to the drive. We've got U, V, W, and ground; they go on the bottom four screws here on the drive. U, V, and W, and then ground. So when you’re hooking this up to your machine, you also put a ground—an earth ground from this post here, but we're not going to do that right here. Last cable here is the encoder, feedback cable from the motor to the drive. 

1:30 So it's the same kind of screw on connector. Like that. Finally we'll bring our power to the drive. So we're going to have our L1 and L2. And now it's all set up. Now you can see we've got the power up, and we've got the encoder readout on the screen. Now we've got motion on our motor. All right, now you know how to wire up a Teco Servo drive and motor.
