Last month I bought Brother TC-221 1986.year.
Currently reporting an error on servo drive for xyz(A7-1-10047-1D Sanyo Denki) and for spindle drive is uses 20BA150FFWB0D REV D from Sanyo Denki.
- I want to replace the old controller, which mesa cards to choose?
- I have a desire to try to run existing drivers if any of you have documentation and want to help me.

Hello everyone,
Thanks for the answers
Do you share the opinion that it is better to replace drivers and motors to not to try to run existing ones ?

Postovanje, Hvala Vam na odgovoru i na usmerenju.
Da li mislite da je bolje da izbacim stare drajvere i motore ?
Da li Vi imate neku semu kako bih mogao da povezem drajv od glavnog spindle pogona da bar njega iskoristim ? Da li cu moci da imam pozicioniranje-orjentaciju zbog izmene alata ?
Hvala .

I recently also bought a Brother TC-225, and have been reading this post with great joy. The question that comes to mind is: how bad is this tuning imperfection really in practice? Reason I want to know is that I do not really have the budget right now to invest in new servo motors and drives, so i would like to use the stock ones as well.

I also saw there is are lots of tuning options on the stock drives, loads of potentiometers. Anyone that has been playing around with those? btw my xyz driver is a Sanyo Denki model: BA020FFWB-301

Another option would be to sell the stock driver and motors, and buy new servos and drives from China. Don't know if i will get decent money for the stock ones, i do see them over on ebay for about $500

its bad enough that you wont be able to use it in my experience.

the drives are perfectly tuned, i would not tamper with their settings. its only linuxcnc that needs tuning (which doesnt work well)

the motors will sell for $200-$500 each.
the drive will sell for $500-$1000.

might take some time is all.

delta B3 400w / 750w kits with drive/motor/cables are $400-$500us a set plus shipping. youll also need adapter plates and new couplings.

so, youd have to spend a little more probably, BUT, youd then have the cutting edge drive performance of a brand new machine.

Thanks for your reply! Hope i can bother you with some more questions :)

1. I don't know the model numbers of the motors, they're never printed on them since their Brother specific motors. So maybe a bit harder to sell without model numbers? If i would get near the prices you've mentioned I've covered most of the expenses of new servo's indeed.

2. Any recommendations where to buy the Delta servo's?

3. Did you use the original drive for the spindle? if so do you have the pinout for these?
