U1215GA driver and M540 Speed Control Motor

Postby aalavi » Tue Sep 04, 2012 7:44 pm

Hello,

I have a Vextra U1215GA driver and an M540 Speed Control Motor. Unfortunately I don't have any document on either. Any chance you anyone could shed some light on how to use these two devices or point me to the user manual?

Thank you in advance,
AA

Hi AA,

Please see attached file below for the UI215GA driver's operating manual:

Can you provide the model number of our specific speed controller used with your M540 motor? Our manuals are based off specific motor and controller combinations. There could be several controllers that used the same motor model in the past. At this point, the only manual I'm able to find is for a M540-401 or M540-402 motor which uses a US540-01T or US540-02T speed controller. They were all part of our older US series.

The UI215GA driver is designed to control 2-phase step motors. It is not designed to control a M540 motor which is an AC induction motor with a voltage generator on rear of the motor. The M540 motor needs a different type of controller. Once you confirm your complete motor model number, I can confirm its dedicated controller model from the US series.

Hopefully this helps.

Thank you very much for the detailed answer. (I just realized my enquiry is replied to!)

The motor is M540-201. Here is specifications:
SPEED CONTROL MOTOR 96607
M540-201
40W 50/60Hz 100V
10uF
90~`400/90~1700rpm

I would appreciate your suggestion on most cost-effective controller I can purchase with this.
Regards,
AA

Hi aalavi,

Unfortunately, we do not manufacture a speed controller now that would be directly compatible with your old, discontinued, existing motor, M540-201. Just FYI - this motor was in our catalog about 30 years ago. We have since introduced several newer versions of the US speed control series which was your old product series. Since we've never done quality testing with the new motors and the old speed controllers, we cannot offer them as a standard combinations.

With our limited documentation for the old US series, we cannot determine the old speed controller model number that was designed exclusively to run your motor. I can only find a old package model which is US540-201. This package model includes both your existing motor and its dedicated speed controller. If you can find this somewhere, it may be the most economical way. However, the US540-201 model is only offered in Japan so the voltage input is 100v; not 115v like our US AC voltage.

It may be better off for you to purchase a new US standard package which would ensure that you have a working motor and a working controller that accepts US 115v AC voltage. We show this model on our website. Please search for "US540-401U2" for all gear options. This motor is designed to mount to a gearhead which is designed to reduce the speed range and increase torque. If you decide to purchase a new package model, you will also need to replace your gearhead. I would need your existing gearhead model number to determine your gear ratio. Our US standard gear shaft may be different from yours.

Let me know if you have any questions.
