    CENTENT MOTOR WIRING
    --------------------
    These pinouts are straight out of the Centent CNO143 manual.
    Quothe the Centent docs:

        "One motor winding connects to T3 and T4, while the other
	winding connects to T5 and T6. The step motor drive will 
	operate 4, 6, and 8 wire motors. The 6 and 8 wwire motors 
	may be wired in either a series (low power) or parallel 
	(hi power) configuration. For 8 wire motors, follow the 
	manufacturer's hookup diagrams for series or parallel
	operation." (See below)

    In the following table, T3, T4, T5 and T6 refer to the numbered
    terminals on the drive. Colors indicate the wire colors that 
    come off the motor shown.

FIELD WIRING NOTES ------------------ These are actual wiring diagrams I've used in the field. These are NOT from the Centent docs; use at own risk. I'm not so sure about my 8 wire connections anymore. Although it works, it is not what the docs appear to want. See manpage on SLOSYN for manufacturer recommended wiring. SERIES (LO POWER) CENTENT CNO-143 WIRING Superior Ele. Centent Superior Ele. 8 wire motor CNO-143 6 wire motor ------------ ------- ------------ wht/grn 3 wht/grn grn 4 grn red 5 red wht/red 6 wht/red wht & blk NOT CONNECTED blk wht/blk & orn NOT CONNECTED wht 8 WIRE NOTE: With 8 wire connections, WHT and BLK are tied together, but are not connected to the drive. Also, WHT/BLK and ORN are tied together, and not connected to the drive. PARALLEL (HI POWER) CENTENT CNO-143 WIRING Superior Ele.

Also, WHT/BLK and ORN are tied together, and not connected to the drive. The following tables are for Superior Electric motors, and pretty much re-iterate the Centent docs, albeit clearer to my eyes: FULL WINDING (LO POWER) HALF WIRING (HI POWER) __________________________ __________________________ | | CENTENT | MOTOR | | | CENTENT | MOTOR | | | DRIVE | WIRE | | | DRIVE | WIRE | | PHASE | TERMINAL | COLOR | | PHASE | TERMINAL | COLOR | |-------|----------|-------| |-------|----------|-------| | "A" | 3 |GRN/WHT| | "A" | 3 | WHT | | "B" | 4 | GRN | | "B" | 4 | GRN | | "C" | 5 |RED/WHT| | "C" | 5 | BLK | | "D" | 6 | RED | | "D" | 6 | RED | |_______|__________|_______| |_______|__________|_______| If you encounter errors in this documentation, please send email to erco@3dsite.com.
