Understanding the status lights during operation

This article explains the meaning of the status lights on your Yeti Tool SC0/1 spindle motor.

< Previous | List |

If you are using an SC0 spindle it is especially important that you pay attention to the status lights on the spindle, as these will tell you if the spindle is overloaded. 

If the spindle is under high overload you will need to manually pause the job.

The speed control wheel contains the status light for spindle overload.

A: Speed control wheel

The status light will flash a sequence of pulses if the spindle starts to become overloaded; the following table shows what the colour of the light and number of pulses indicates.

Note that the pulses correspond to the maximum time left until the spindle shuts down.
