HOW TO REPLACE
ROTARY SWITCH
WITH
ABSOLUTE ENCODER

(2000.11)
FOREWORD

It has been informed you in TTI-2554 and 2554-1 that the production of Rotary switch, used for the D Series and
TLFDII Series as Needle position detector for a long time, has been discontinued and that an Absolute encoder
has been applied instead as the Needle position detecting part for the machines, manufactured in October 2000
or later.

We have a certain amount of Rotary switches for the maintenance parts in stock, however, continuous part
supply will not be available due to the discontinuation of the part production.
Therefore, you are requested to replace Rotary switch with Absolute encoder when you need to repair customer-
installed machines.

This document describes the instructions how to mount Absolute encoder and how to conduct wiring.
We will be pleased if it is helpful to you for reference when you replace parts or repair machines.

B. How to mount Absolute encoder
This document is not only focused on the adjusting procedure and instructions how to modify Needle position
detector from Rotary switch to Absolute encoder, but also illustrates the instructions how to adjust the currently
mass-produced models, equipped with Absolute encoder from the very beginning of shipment.
This chapter regards the second needle as the reference needle position when mounting Absolute encoder in
order to facilitate the procedure to fix screws. If you find color change operation unstable or other inconvenience
after mounting it, please shift the reference needle position to the needle position in the middle of Needle bar
case (for example, the 6th or 7th needle for 12-needle models) and remake adjustment.

1. How to position change cam


(1) Change the color manually to the second needle and turn OFF main power supply.
(2) Remove the Front cover of Color change system.
(3) Rotate the part A with a spanner etc. as illustrated below. Change cam also rotates and the part B moves to
the right or left along the Spiral groove. Spiral groove has a linear section, where B does not move even when
A rotates. Stop A at the position around the center of the linear section with the second needle selected.

A Cam shaft

[Note]
Conduct alignment in the same way,
B irrespective of the type of Color
change system.

(4) Check whether the second needle and the center of needle hole align on the same line or not.

Align the second


needle correctly.

(5) Check whether the detecting plate of 1-turn switch collar is positioned at the center of detecting part of 1-turn
detector (Photo-interrupter).
If the detecting plate is not correctly positioned, loosen Fixing screw of 1-turn switch collar and adjust the position.

2. How to change the position of Color change motor


If the harness of Color change motor is positioned at the top right corner (when viewed from the machine right
side), rotate only Color change motor only by 90 degrees without rotating Gear box. (excluding D Series,15-
needle models)

3. How to remove Rotary switch and to mount Absolute encoder


1) Loosen Rotary switch pin (the shaft to mount Rotary switch) or Hexagon socket head set screw of Knurled
screw and remove Rotary switch. Then remove Rotary switch stay.

5. How to adjust needle position display position

(1) If there is a marking line on 1-turn switch collar, rotate the shaft, located at the side of Color change system,
with a spanner etc. toward the 3rd needle and position the marking line on 1-turn switch collar to the center of
detecting part of 1-turn detector.
If there is no marking line, you do not need to move the position of 1-turn switch collar.

(2) Turn ON the main power supply and set Operation panel to display the needle position.

(3) Rotate the Coupling with radio pliers etc. and search reference position of needle position display.

[Note] Please note that the reference position varies, depending on whether 1-turn switch collar has a marking
line or not.

1) When there is a marking line on 1-turn switch collar


The position, where needle position display changes from 3 to 2

2) When there is no marking line on 1-turn switch collar


The center of the section, where needle position display on the Operation panel shows 2.

(4) Fix Hexagon socket head set screw on the coupling or Rotary switch pin

(5) Rotate the shaft, located at the side of Color change system, with a spanner etc. and set the 1-turn switch
color so that the detecting part of 1-turn detector detects the needle position.

(6) Attach the cover of Color change system and complete the mounting operation.

C. Outline and check of Electrical parts
This chapter gives you explanations, based on D Series, type III machines.
The outline of measured wave forms or routing channel of Needle position display harness on the Operation
panel is available also for other models in common.

1. How to measure various types of signals


(1) Signal names and measuring points
Measure the channel between Connector pin and CP on D Joint13 card with an oscilloscope.
Measure with an oscilloscope Pin Nos. 2, 9, 10, 11 and 12 of CN3 [COLOR] at plus side and T1 of C1 at minus
side.

Measuring points
Signal name
Probe (Plus side) Probe (Minus side)
Needle position 20 9 pin of CN3 T1 of CP
Needle position 21 10 pin of CN3 T1 of CP
Needle position 22 11 pin of CN3 T1 of CP
Needle position 23 12 pin of CN3 T1 of CP
Needle position 24 5 pin of CN3 T1 of CP
1-turn 2 pin of CN3 T1 of CP

(2) Measuring wave form


Signals are regarded as normal if the waveforms are observed as follows:
Needle 20
position 1

22
23
24

1-turn signal
Needle position 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15

Shit the cursor to the 4th row from the top on Operation panel and check if 1-turn signal display is lit when
1-turn-sugnal is 0V.
