1010 Axis Controller Board
    - For XYZAB and Spindle control - Software Eproms and Jumpers configure axis
- The 1010-6 is configurable for all combinations
    - For all other dash numbers, the Spindle card is not the same as the XYZAB cards
    - One Year Warranty

Software Policy: We do not sell or distribute Fadal copyrighted software. Boards such as the 1400 CPU board and the 1010 Axis controller board requires Fadal copyrighted software. It is best to retain and use your original Eproms and avoid introducing software compatibility issues.

About the Axis Controller:
The Fadal CNC Control uses one 1010 board for controlling each axis in a machine. The axis controller boards receive input position, direction and speed commands from the CPU via 1030 board then outputs commands to the axis amplifier. The amplifier rotates the axis motor and the resolver or encoder provides position information back to the 1010 controller board. The axis controller then uses this information to adjust the outputs to the amplifier to maintain the commanded speed and position. The Axis Controller boards are the same for each axis except for the jumper configuration  on the board and the EPROMs change from linear travel (X, Y, & Z) to rotary travel (A & B). The jumpers determine the axis, the travel and the direction of rotation for the specific axis. It is very important that the jumpers are set correctly.

The Axis Controller boards store and use the ball screw compensation, amplifier signal gain and position offset information. The position offset information is used for cold start position, for DC machine this would be zero unless glass scale option and for AC servo motors using either the encode or linear glass scales feedback.
There have been several versions of the Axis Controller board:
  • 1010-1 has one program EPROM and one Tab EPROM (ball screw pitch error compensation)
  • 1010-4 has two program EPROMs U7 & U10 and compensation, gain & offset are stored in EPROM
  • 1010-5 has two program EPROMs U15 & U18 and compensation, gain & offset are stored in EEPROM
  • 1010-6 has two program EPROMs U15 & U18 and compensation, gain & offset are stored in EEPROM

Each version of the Axis Controller board requires its own software. The –5 & -6 versions use the same software.

The connections for the axis controller boards are:
  J1 – Signal 2 output
  J2 – Resolver signal input,
  J3 – not used
  J5 – Encoder input
  J6 – Optional scale input.
Not all of these connections are used on each machine.

Special configurations:
Servo Coolant option – uses an axis controller board with special program EPROMs. If no rotary table is installed, this board can be installed in either slot 12 or 13. With an A-axis installed the servo coolant must be in slot 12. If an A & B axis are installed, a Servo Coolant option CANNOT be added.
Tri-Tech Head option – both Axis Controllers in slot 12 & 13 are configured as A-axis and SETP parameter is set. Two pallets each with an A-axis option - both Axis Controllers in slot 12 & 13 are configured as A-axis and special software is installed.

True Knowledge and Experience you can Trust:

Experience - Always Your Best Choice:
Having been involved in the original design and production of the CNC88 hardware and software, we truly understand these boards; to the component level and the requirements for properly repairing and testing of all the boards we offer.
