Is it possible to run a 1 PH motor with a 3 PH Output VDF (1 PH Input)? I salvage motors and usually they are 1 PH, so speed control is a problem. If I take out the start capacitor and centrifugal switch, can I hook up a VFD? Or other possibilities I haven't mentioned?
bought a fairly antique 20" Monarch bandsaw. It came with a gigantic (~16" diameter) 5HP electric motor. I'm not sure a bandsaw of this size needs this much motor, but since I have it, I'll try to use it.
The motor appears to be 5HP 3Phase, and probably 1730RPM. It is old enough that I can't...
I have an Altivar16 VFD connected to a 1.5Kw 2HP asynchronous motor of which it is rated to. I originally had it running but at 25Hz and I pressed stop too long and reset it which in turn stopped the motor running.
Hello, and thanks in advanced for taking the time to read this post. By no means am I an electrician but am working on a science experiment I have thought up. I am trying to build a variable volt variable frequency 3 phase toroidal induction coil. So far the parts i will be using is;
