Help please. I am getting a tc-211 conversational cnc. Looking to do a retro fit. I would like keep the original servos, and possibly drives (not mandatory). Just need a little help with the correct servo drives, breakout/control boards and any inside info on replacing the resolvers with encoders and pit falls to avoid. Any info would be great. I really don't want to change the servo motors. As far as I could find they are 100v A.C. and 200w motors. Thanks in advance, and I will post pics and descriptions when I get started.

OK i have some pics of the servo (z ) and drives I think. I couldn't open the cabinet all the way.Any advise to convert this to linuxcnc as easy as possible would be great. Also as I don't have a vast knowledge of electrical engineering basic descriptions and acronym explinations would be great. Thanks to all the real guru's here in advance

You posted links to an album page (.html) inside image tags. I changed them.

It looks like a 3.7kw drive and a 200W servo, which seems odd.

Looks like a Toshiba RAD01, and I haven't managed to find a manual on the internet (I found people asking for the manual for RAD02, but no replies).

I don't suppose the connectors are helpfully labelled?

I will be physically picking up the machine next week and it has a complete manual with all the schematics I have a friend that will be scanning them into PDF format
