Tajima TME-HC Electronics
The Tajima TME-HC was one of the first widely used multihead Tajima models.
The Tajima TME-HC machine electronics consist of the main power box, control panel, DU-10 (XY) and various other small boards such as head cards and joint cards.
List of boards generally found on the Tajima TME-HC models:
Power and control of the main shaft motor. This is the largest motor on the machine. This is the only card that has an optional plug in the back, which are labeled 100V and 200V. If you have 110V power then either plug works but it is not recommended to mismatch; although the 200V only slightly leeches off of the main card's ability to provide power to the rest of the system, if anything happens to the S-card then the main card will also be damaged. If you have 200V or more from your wall power, then you have no choice but to use the 200V plug; using the 100V plug with 200V wall input may damage the S-card.
Color change card
Power to the color change motor. Also reads the color change potentiometer and some solenoids.
One card per head. Detects thread break signals from the head assembly, and powers some solenoids. If one is bad, it can interfere with signals of all, including the color change card. When configuring the control panel, it also asks to pick a head card type 1 or type 2, and if the choice is wrong then all thread break signals will be wrong and erratic.
The TME-HC Control Panel houses the Tajima TME-HC's main computer boards which include the control panel, LCD screen. It is preferred that the control panel when undergoing repairs on any of the Control Panel component.
