I can not control the spindle via Easel software

Hello every one,
I faced problem with the spindle. I prefer automatically spindle. But, I can not control the spindle via Easel software. I can to control the spindle just manual. Do you can to help and guide me to solve the problem?? How I can to connect the spindle via the Easel software??
Thank you very much.

Dewalt 611 or different router?
You must use a power relay to turn Dewalt ON/OFF via Easel.
Easel can not control speed, speed setting 1 is recommended.

Hey there,

What type of spindle are you using. I am using the Dewalt 611 and built my own spindle controller using a solid state relay hooked into the XCarve controller box and works works great. If you can provide more information I might be able to help you out on how to do what you need to do.


Yes. Dewalt 611

Dewalt 611

I see the product " Controllable Four Outlet Power Relay Module version 2 - (Power Switch Tail Alternative)", is 12 A, and my spindle is 13 A. So, is it ok to use the relay??

I want to use a dust collector “: Kenwood”. Can I to set up in Easel to control Kenwood automatically??

I used the setup in this post
Wiring a solid state relay
you most likley could add more Solid State Relay’s (SSR) I used this SSR: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01MCWO35P/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 I also added a light switch to cut all power to the router for safety reasons.

This is the controller I have attached to my XCarve, running the spindle and the dust collector.
