Had to replace the old Baldor drive on the VMC15XT . I went with the Glentek that Calmotion supplied. I have never replaced a drive before, so I was a little hesitant . It took me a few hours , due to the fact of being extra careful. This could not have gone any easier. It really was as simple as removing the old drive and plugging in the new drive. I had to set the pot to my motor size and RPM. It was that simple. I did a quick balance adjustment on the RPM and that was it.
Calmotion has great customer service. Very happy with them.
Just wanted to let others know how simple this was .

I have a 4020 with an old Baldor vectorless drive. Sometimes I get a spindle error and the machine stops. Used to happen twice a day, no maybe once every week

The error messages on the Baldor screen are like a chapter of War and Peace, when it craps out I'm going the Glentek route as well. Will also add an encoder to the motor so I can get rigid tapping
