Jaguar Cub Remote Control Box

Some time back, I bought a Jaguar Cub inverter. Model CUB3A.
I have that connected up to drive a three phase motor on my lathe. All
works just fine.
Now I want to make an external control box for it but I can't seem to
work out some of the details.
FWD/REV and speed are simple enough but I am not sure how to get the
start/stop connected. There is a stop input available on termnal X2 but
as soon as that is released, the motor will start again. I would like to
add an emergency stop function that latches on, like an NVR switch.
Has anyone got, or can point me to, wiring details for an external box
for this inverter?
Thanks

Suggest you take a look at the programming and connection options in the manual. You need to look for "three wire control". Programmed in this way the system should run as I am sure you expect.

I have had a good search of the manual and can only find one fleeting reference to 3-wire control. After reading it I am no wiser. It says that one of the control inputs can be configured as a HOLD function. I quote:

Peter, I have the wiring and setup for most Cub drives for 3 wire. Do you have a link to the manual as I can't find a CUB3A listed
Look at this page and let me know which one it is and I can post wiring and setup.

It is the first one on the list:

This manual is identical to the one that came with the inverter.

OK will dig the sheets out later, have to go deliver a machine today but it's not a problem.

I have sent a mail direct with circuits, however having now read the manual (what a pain in the A****!) you will need to do the following
1 Set the jumper to "Source" 2 Assign 1006 to E01 (this sets the X1 terminal as the HLD for three wire) 3 Set F02 to 1 (Sets external control with no action from keypad buttons) 4 Using my circuit rename the connections as follows My Terminal Cub Terminal STOP X1 START FWD REVERSE REV COMMON PLC
Thats how I read it from the PDF but may well be incorrect somewhere. Assuming that I have not missed something from a quick read, I would lash up the control with fwd rev and stop buttons first to prove it out before going to my circuit (assuming my option is what you want). You do not even need buttons link PLC to X1 with a short flying wire you can dab to Fwd or Rev Disconnect X1 to stop.

PLC-----|/|--------| |----FWD | | ----| |----REV | | -----------X1
|/| = Normally closed momentary contact (Stop button) | | = Normally open momentary contact
Ok they look like capacitors but you do better in ASCII art ;-)
Suggest that you actually set motor direction by swapping 2 motor wires if FWD connection runs reverse for your application. Best of luck

Something that he is still not sure about.
I am still not happy with the E01 setting, I have read and reread but cannot be sure of what is being said. If a setting of 1006 allows a continual run with a dab on FWD whilst X1 is connected to to PLC then that is what you want. If dabbing FWD with no connection to X! causes a run and a stop when X! connected to PLC then set E01 to 6.
IMHO not the best manual!

I shall await John's cntribution and then give them both a try tonught.
I don't have a n/c switch at the moment so I will have to order one.
Thanks very much for taking the time to look at the manual. Glad it is not just me that finds it confusing.

Ok good luck, hope to hear a succesful outcome. BTW for info the three position switch that I used was RS 219-5778 plus the start and stop buttons and contacts from the same range.

I'll go with what Richard says except you enter 6 for the value E1 Entering 1006 enters a negative value.
Spreadsheet is here

Only concern yourself with the values in the Actual Setting column which is the ones you need to change. F03, F15 and F16 you may have to change to suit your speed range. This is a crib sheet for an actual machine.
The values P02, P03 and P14 need the values taking off the motor plate and entering. P14 isn't critical. P03 acts as the thermal overload.

Many thanks.
I will order some buttons and give it a go. Once it is sorted, I shall put up a description of exactly what was needed.

Peter I have seen no further comment from you! Did you get this going or has life got in the way!
