All info relating to the Denford Triac series of CNC milling machines
I'm thinking that the resistor is the wrong sizes. I have read conflicting data sheets one said its a half hp motor and i also have a manual that said one hp. I went with lower value (1/2 hp) thinking better less than to much. I will look again at the lenze motor and either go up to 1 or not . If you know the HP i would appreciate that info. thanks in advance jb.

Having just checked the first Triac brochure I've found, the spindle was rated at 1HP (I think some were lower, and some higher). So going by the KBIC manual (http://www.kbelectronics.com/manuals/kbic_manual.pdf - page 11), you need the resistor for 1hp on 180VDC, which should be part number 9841.
hey thanks to all for the help on my machine it did end up being the wrong hp on the kbic put in the new one and have been cutting parts on the weekend getting familiar with the mach 3 software thanks again to all who posted... jb
