  • Abort - Reset E-stop / Single vs 3 Phase Stinger II

    I’m the proud owner of a used stinger sr-34 that is probably over 5 years old.
    I can’t get wincnc to communicate with the router yet. I’m only getting “abort-reset e-stop.

    I opened up the front enclosure to see “automation direct 230v 3ph.”
    Please say it ain’t so of a stinger II having 3 phase power.
    It’s a 2hp spindle and that would explain no power.

    Otherwise any help is appreciated.
    Sorry for the newbie style post. I’ve been to Vectric training and thought I was stepping up with a camaster for my first machine and hope I don’t regret not confirming a smaller router with 3 phase requirements.

    Best thing is for you to contact CAMaster tech support and see if you can figure out if it's really 3 phase or single phase.
    As for the "abort reset e-stop", try twisting the red e-stop buttom on the side of the control box until it pops out. It may have gotten pushed in in moving.

      I agree with you.
      Moderators you can delete this thread.
      I’ve had 3 phase confirmed, which is a new hurdle.
      Excited to get going, now with a VFD.

        Um..m the spindles are 3 phase. (except for the one tiny 1.0kw option) That's how they work. But the power requirement from the wall is single phase unless you have a really big machine that has horsepower that requires industrial 3 phase power. The Stinger series use 4 wire 240v circuits from the wall when equipped with the size spindles they support. The VFD converts the single phase power to 3 phase to power the spindle. The rest of the controller is running on 120v power which is why a four wire circuit is required. Ask Camaster for the prep guide for your machine and spindle size.

          Yes, single phase into the frequency drive and the drive outputs 3 phase to the spindle. I always think that is cool magic.
