If your X-Carve Pro spindle won't turn on, it is likely the VFD needs to be reset. This can happen if you press the e-stop button as the power cuts all power to the VFD which puts it in an alarm state.
To reset the VFD, you will need to power cycle the controller. To do this, turn off the controller and unplug it from the wall. Wait 5-10 minutes before plugging it back in and powering it on.
With the controller powered back on, confirm you are connected to Easel. You should see a green Carve button.
Once you're connected to Easel, you can test if the spindle is working by sending a command through the Machine Inspector.
*Please ensure you remove the bit or the bit is secured before running these commands.*
To open the Machine Inspector go to Machine > General Settings > Machine Inspector.
In the console, send the following command to unlock your machine:
The Console looks like this:
Next, send this command (this command this will turn on the spindle to 12000 RPM):
Press enter. Once it is running, use this command to shut it off:
If the spindle powers on and off with these commands, then you'll be able to run a carve and expect that the spindle will work as intended.
