    Need romarsh transformer info

    I have a Romarsh 3 phase transformer. Model 3pt30-.0/59 I can't find any info on this transformer. I mostly need the connection diagram.

    Is this leg to high?

    I'll watch out for that. I'm still worried that the voltages are to high. I'm trying to contact the cnc tech at clausing to see what they say about it but no luck so far. I'm going to look at a 3 phase transformer tomorrow. Hopefully it has the correct taps.

    Is this leg to high?

    I finished the balancing tonight. My capacitor values were 10uf between the 2 legs going into the idler motor. 110uf between A and C coming out of the motor and 90uf between C and B coming out of the motor. My voltages between legs was 250,250 and 247. The idler is a 15hp.

    Is this leg to high?

    It might be a few days before I can check the hydraulics. I disconnected my wiring to do the balancing. Hopefully that won't take long.

    Is this leg to high?

    I have started it yes. I had to switch 2 of the wires going into the machine originally because it started for a few seconds then threw a hydraulic low pressure alarm. I can run it now and at random it will throw that same alarm. It might run for 5 minutes to 15 minutes without throwing that...

    Is this leg to high?

    Can I use this capacitor to help with the balancing? It only has the 3 terminals on the top.

    Is this leg to high?

    Thanks Kallam. Since you have already done this could you get the values of the capacitors you used so I can get close.

    Is this leg to high?

    I found the transformer it was already set to 225 volt. The schematics in the manual and the nameplate on the door both say 230 volts. Is standard tolerance +/- .010% if it is then the supply voltage could go as high as 253. If this is the case do I need to worry about it at all? On the other...

    Is this leg to high?

    Nmbmxer, you said yours is a diy converter. How did you calculate which caps to use to balance the legs?

    Is this leg to high?

    The rotary is a homemade using the motor in the picture. So to bring that leg down I need a buck transformer to go from 247 to somewhere between 220 to 230? Is it possible to make a voltage divider to drop it? I have 2 wire wound ceramic resistors about 7 inches long. Not sure of the rating of...

    Is this leg to high?

    I have a rotary converter powering my clausing colchester A50 cnc lathe. I measured from leg to leg with the spindle running at 1000 rpm. I got 218, 222, and 247. Is the 247 measurement to high? If it is what can I do with it? If its not do I need to wire it into a certain terminal in the control?

    New lathe install need advice

    I figured it out. I started it up it ran for a few seconds then got a hydraulic low pressure alarm. I flipped the incoming red and black wires. Restarted and had no hydraulic alarm. Filled the coolant and it pumped fine. Thanks everyone.

    New lathe install need advice

    I'm doing a new install on a clausing colchester a50 storm. I've seen warnings on other lathes about the hydraulic pump spinning backwards. My question is how do all of you out there check that it's spinning in the right direction. I can open a cover and see the fan on the pump motor but the...

    LATHE WITH ANILAM CRUSADE ML controller and ATC

    Try talking to Jerry at JB cnc repair in New York. He knows the controls very well. Since most anilam controls were a retrofit he may have an idea where to find you more info. Dan.

    What make/model turret is this?

    I don't know that procedure. It may be a while until I can get to doing all of this.

    What make/model turret is this?

    Kallam, you said you opened the seal .010 did you cut some off the seal with a cutting tool? Did you put a rotary tool in the tool post and grind some off? Please elaborate on this process. Which seal did you open up? I was looking at a side view of the turret assembly and without having the...

    What make/model turret is this?

    Once and a while it gets this error. I saw different posts on different forums. One said about loosening up a seal inside. Another said about changing timers for turret functions.

    What make/model turret is this?

    Thanks 50BMG. I'll keep looking for info on them. Without taking anything apart I can't tell from any nameplates. There weren't any

    What make/model turret is this?

    I've been looking for a make or model number on this turret and didn't find any info yet. It's on a clausing colchester A50 from 1998. Thanks everyone.

    Need Clausing cnc lathe help

    I found a thread from someone with a similar problem. On their machine it was a switch for the turret returning was out of place. You are probably right. It probably needs to come apart to see what's going on in there.
