1.5kw vevor spindle skr pro 1.2 wiring and setup

So I’m thinking of getting the 1.5kw vevor spindle and 1.5kw vevor vfd inverter to replace the Makita router.

Currently using SKR pro v1.2 which is using the v1engieering firmware for dual stops.

Is there a step by step guide on install, wiring, setup for this, would like rpm control and on/off using gcode commands etc.

I am hoping I don’t need to update skr firmware as I haven’t attempted this yet. But if I do, maybe include a step guide to do this also.

I am in the same boat and think I bought the same vfd combo. I work at a company that makes VFDs so I am familiar with controlling one. I would highly recommend a control circuit for the VFD to eliminate the possibility of it running while you are touching the spindle. Powering the drive off will work but keep in mind that cycling power before the bus is discharged can result in catastrophic failure specially for these cheap drives that do not have a effective discharge circuit. I can share my schematic I have created for my control box I am building if you are interested.
