cyclone p with 21iT

Hi All,
i purchased a Cyclone p with a fanuc 21iT control, all is good apart from the previous owner let the batteries die! no backups or data sheets :roll:
its taken a year but i'm nearly there, got it running a simple job last night, but i have had to short out the axis lube float switch because the alarm is permanently on, and the spindle still runs when the program reads M00,
does anyone have a list of keep relays?? i realise there may be differences between machines but it may give me some info to work on.
i have the machine in my garage and i am currently making a large scale traction engine, hopefully this machine will help me with the bolts and studs, i hate making repetitive parts on manual machines!!
all the best,
Chris.

Hi Chris

Do you have the serial number for the Cyclone.

We should have a copy of all the specific settings on record at Denfords.

Hi Martin,
yes, if you look to the right hand side of my post the info is in the box,
do you know if its possible for the spindle to stop when the control has read M00?
thanks for your help on this,
regards,
chris.

Hi Chris

This is the original record sheet for your machine with the timers, counters & keep relay settings.

Hope this helps.
