RZR VHF UHF Dual Band Antenna Mount, Weld and Tune

I made a tab for NMO mount for the RZR. The mount is welded to a tube on the rear. I go over the process of tuning the antenna for both the UHF and VHF bands.

RZR Rock Light Install

RZR Rock Light Install

I replaced the Lux lights with hard mountable rock lights from Amazon. The RZR S 1000 now has ample light to roam around the rocks at night. Most of the tire shadow was eliminated and I can see further behind and in front of the RZR at night.

First Power Up of the VMC mill in the shop

First Power Up of the VMC mill in the shop

First power up of the Excel VMC CNC into the shop. Testing of the American Rotary three phase AD-20 converter with the Mill.

After verifying the three phase connection voltages and placing the high leg on non-control leg inputs of the machine I powered the machine on without issues. I did initial leveling using the bed with the center bed screws loose. All the rigging preventing table and Z axis movement was removed. I used simple green cleaner for most of the machine. The automatic tool changer area I used purple power. A fresh load of coolant will do the rest of the cleaning for me.

I did have an issue after startup with a servo drive alarm. It ended up being a fiber optic connector on the Fanuc controls. After reconnecting, everything worked fine.

RZR Mini Multiplexer Part 8 – Canbus R&D

RZR Mini Multiplexer Part 8 – Canbus R&D.

Earlier work on checking the CAN-BUS connection and signal on the RZR 1000S. I capture some traffic to ensure I can see at least the speed and gear selection for the new module to control the HCControl2.

RZR Mini Multiplexer Part 7 – Rework and Reuse of Prototype PCBs

RZR Mini Multiplexer Part 7 – Rework and Reuse of Prototype PCBs.

Rework of an early prototype to use with the canbus controller and to have an additional RS485 device on the bus. HCControl2 is in the RZR 1000 S at this point and replaced the relay for the lightbar and winch. I’ll be adding reverse and rock lights soon to integrated with CanBus to enable turning on the reverse lights in reverse and auto rock lights on at low speed.
