VFD for phase conversion on BP V2XT
OK I have a V2XT that I got for a song and a dance. Here is a wiring diagram for teh power coming in and how it gets split up http://www.americanmototire.com/cata...ExpDiagram.jpg ( thanks for the blue print FugginZukin). Can I get away with just using a Hitachi X200-022NFU2 VFD? to feed the whole machine or will that cause problems? I am reluctant to use a power sucking phase converter, thats my last option. Any ideas or input?
OK so I learned that in order to use a phase converter I will need to replace my forward and reverse contactors with a VFD . Use the 24 or 12 volt signal to initiate a reverse and the main contactor signal to initiate a motor start. Other than that the transformer that creates 110 just plug that to one of teh legs and the transformer that makes 90 volts and 24 volts see If I can trade that for something that inputs 110 and hook that to the other leg? Basically now I know that I can't just feed teh main line in through teh VFD without burning it up. I have my heart set on VFD because A.) less space and better efficiencey and B.) it will fall int place very nicely with a centroid retrofit in the future. come on folks need some help here.
