Product Overview

The WIR-0160, also known as the Rigid Tap wire harness, is an essential component in Fadal CNC machines. Its job is to connect the spindle drive encoder output channels to the CNC controller, enabling precise control over the spindle operation.

Usage of WIR-0160

The Wire Harness, Rigid Tap, 11ft is used specifically for rigid tapping operations in Fadal CNC machines. It ensures smooth communication between the spindle drive encoder and the CNC controller, allowing for accurate tapping processes.


The WIR-0160 cable is 11 feet long.

Functionality in CNC Machines

In CNC machines, the Fadal Wire Harness Rigid Tap 11FT facilitates rigid tapping by connecting the spindle drive encoder to the CNC controller. This enables the CNC system to accurately control the spindle rotation during tapping operations, ensuring precise thread creation in the workpiece.

How Does It Work?

The WIR-0160 is a cable that links the spindle drive encoder output to the CNC controller. It has labeled leads to connect to the spindle drive. It connects the spindle drive encoder output channels to the CNC controller, enabling precise control over the spindle operation.

At the control, it plugs into the 1010-4, 1010-5, or 1010-6 Spindle card. This card's input port is located at the bottom (J4), which is a 10-pin connector. For the Rigid Tap to work, the Fadal control system needs the right software Eproms for the 1400 CPU and the 1010 spindle card. 

In order to check if the Eproms are correct, you can use the command G84.2 in MDI, which makes the spindle turn three times, stops, and holds its position. In case the spindle does not work as expected, it means or it indicates incorrect spindle drive or Eproms.
