Hardinge Lathe 204 frame Motor

Looking to replace the 204 frame motor I watched my favorite teach on the subject

and that pointed me to the plate on the motor I have

Reading deeper into this, this is an OLD style of motor frame. 204 Stopped being used in 1953… Of course, mine is a discontinued motor frame…

Looking more at this I see the 203 and the 204 frames are similar it’s the screw mounting width that is different. I think an adapter plate could work. The only dimension that matter is D and U. U is 3/4″ so the center of the motor must be 5″ from the bottom of the plate. Obviously P must be smaller or equal. Watch out for the boxes that stick off the side for the wiring to enter.

LOOKING AT A MODERN NEMA CHART:

A D of 5″ is no longer a standard. The closest D is 4.5″ that leaves 1/2′ for an adapter plate.

All the newer motors have 7/8 shaft meaning the pully will also need to be changed. The 145T looks interesting… Some shopping:

There is hope.

There are also sexy stainless steel motors….

there are charts for the motor mount brackets:

Generating Code with spreadsheet for Keyboard Assignments of CADSOFT Eagle

I needed a way of Generating Code, lots of code.   In cadsoft eagle, the Keyboard Assignments are completely user customizable.  They have a script language that allows you to modify the software.  I’ve used hundreds of the ULP and SCRs and decided to write my own Generator.

Necessity is the mother of all innovation.  Screen Shot 2015-09-14 at 12.56.34 AM Screen Shot 2015-09-14 at 12.56.45 AM Screen Shot 2015-09-14 at 12.56.52 AM Screen Shot 2015-09-14 at 12.56.59 AM Screen Shot 2015-09-14 at 12.57.04 AM Screen Shot 2015-09-14 at 12.58.37 AM Screen Shot 2015-09-14 at 12.58.44 AM Screen Shot 2015-09-14 at 12.58.50 AM

 

GREEN HOME MONITORING SYSTEM

Title: GREEN HOME MONITORING SYSTEM – TRANSMITTER
Author: ANTHONY P KUZUB
DATE: 2015 04 01
Description:

REMOTE MONITORING TRANSMITTER

The GREEN HOME MONITORING SYSTEM controls, monitors then transmits the
status of three room lights to a remote monitoring station.

The code below is the local control and transmitter

Three light switches along with motion sensors control the functionality
of the rooms lights.

When the system is enabled:
The light turns on When motion is detected.
Once motion is detected a five second counter Starts.
If motion is not detected within the five seconds The light shut
off saving power.

When the system is disabled:
The light switch controls The light Directly.

A Peak Power cost value is captured based on the time of day.
To Test this feature: apply a slowly 10mHz Sine wave 1.25
Vpp with offset of 0.625V offset to TP7

This moving sine wave is converted to digital by means of A/D convertor

This power cost value is displayed on the segment display
Indicating the value of power throughout the day.

The Status of The System state, switch position, motion detection, Light
status, and Energy cost, are transmitted to a remote monitoring station
via serial port 1.

Title: GREEN HOME MONITORING SYSTEM – RECEIVER
Author: ANTHONY P KUZUB
DATE: 2015 04 01
Description:

The GREEN HOME MONITORING SYSTEM controls, monitors then transmits the
status of three room lights to a remote monitoring station.

The code below is the remote monitoring station

This program receives 2 bytes of data from the transmitter through
Serial port 1. The data is decoded and displayed on a screen by access
of serial port 2 of the controller.

A workstations TERMINAL session connects a a com port to the hardware receiver.

SESSION CONFIGURATION:
BAUD RATE: 9600
DATA BITS: 8
PARITY: NONE
FLOW CONTROL: NONE
EMULATION: ANSI

The Status of the system, switch positions, motion detection, Light status,
and Energy PEAK VALUE displayed on the terminal screen.

Screen Layout

A Changing Peak Power cost is applied proportionaly to room cost acumulators.

By Pressing the respective key on the terminal keyboard, the rooms cost will
reset to zero.

Please note that with the exception of the push buttons all states are
ACTIVE HIGH
