    30 amps on both machines. #10 wire. About 10kva is the machine rating.

    What size breaker is your 30hp rotary on?

    125 amps on the phase converter input. I have a small 3 phase panel off my phase converter.

    One more question. Do these Brother machines require Wye or Delta 3 phase specifically or either is fine?

    No neutral to the machine so I guess it thinks it’s delta either way.

    I ran Speedios on 20A breakers at the old shop. Brothers sip power. Not sure about the older ones but the regen is held in a capacitor on the new ones I think, so you don't have to worry about flyback spikes for breaker sizing.

    I think it does matter which input you run the wild leg to, so do be aware of that.

    Thanks again for all the input guys. I'm heading to check out the machine friday morning and I will do my best to keep this thread up to date.

    I don’t think it matters. The phase-phase voltage coming out of my phase converter are all within a few volts of each other. It appears that the three phase loads in the machine are the servo amps and the coolant pumps and these are the “big” loads. The controls I think are single phase, wired to just two of the incoming 3 wires. These should be pretty small loads.

    Does anyone know how to tell if a TC-S2Dn-O is dual contact?

    It won't be. It was not available on that model.

    Got it. I thought it started being available on the Dn's ? When did they start with the tool wash?

    The first Dn High Torque had BBT and wash but there are very, very few of those. The face wash is a demand from Brother for any BBT machines. We added it to our standard on the 22T R and M series machines about a year after they came out even if the machines did not have BBT.

    Well I pulled the trigger on a 2012 TC-S2Dn-O 10k with a Yukiwa YNC200L 4th, renishaw tool and spindle probe, lns conveyor, and CTS. Never having been around one of these I was thoroughly impressed with the build quality. I was very surprised at the fact that I could barely hear the spindle, which is noticeably better than my TM1p. The control was easy to navigate and very user friendly. Couple other questions. I have seen others have the probing macros from Yamazen, is this what I need to get or are the built in "automatic centering" routines in the control any good? Also, the manuals dont give any insight on how to use the tool setter? Thanks again.

    Congratulations! Sounds like a great machine and options. The Renishaw macros should already be in the machine. I would consider investing in a 1/2 day or day of service and training from your local Yamazen. There is an office near Philadelphia and one in Cleveland. Not sure who will service your area.

    Congrats! Be sure to post pics if/when you can.

    I'll definitely get some pics, it is getting rigged in on Friday assuming the weather holds out. I'd love to get a half day of quick training but I don't think its in the cards at this time. From looking into the tool probing a little more, does each tool location have its own program to set lengths? So I would call up say program 10 to set the tool length for the tool in that pot? Thanks.

    The tool probing will depend upon how it was set up. We typically use Blum Znano or Metrol tool setters here. The Renishaw will use different macros. Original user may have changed the program #s at some point too.

    The delivery went very well with no hiccups. I am trying to find time to get this thing up and running. Does anyone have experience with the LNS turbo chip conveyors with the VFD? I believe it was hooked up with the power attached up where the main power comes into the machine but where is the control line attached at? I assume it is controlled by an m code, or is it piggybacked with one of the coolant pump codes? Thanks again
