I grabbed an old motor off the shelf and wired it up to test
programming of the Automation Direct GS2 drive for my son's lathe
I've used a VFD on my 10EE for years and set decel time to 0.5
seconds. Works great for stuff like threading where you want to stop
quickly. but I need to remember to first slow the lathe before
stopping or it will kick the drive out (OVC alarm)
I'd like to avoid my son having to slow the lathe before stopping. I
see this control has two decel times possible (P1.06 1.07 1.08) and
something called autoadjustable decel (P6.06), also "S" curve decel
(P1.04) and DC injection(P1.21) My understanding is incomplete here.
I'd like to stop the lathe as fast as possible from any speed without
over current kickouts. Does anyone have knowledge of how to set these
PS a brake resistor is installed.
