    Latest single to 3 phase vfd’s? 15-20hp?

    Yeah the Hitachi l can kind of believe and Delta may be China made anyway, but the price on the AB surprised me. So if l’m looking at a 3 phase unit, 30hp so can handle single phase input, what am l looking for again volts wise? Can remember if it could be 460v, or if it had to be 230V making...

    Latest single to 3 phase vfd’s? 15-20hp?

    I just checked and Hitachi/ Allen Bradley/ Delta all have 30hp 3 phase New units in my price range. 1100-1700 CND From China, could these be knock offs? Quality wise, l would think 1. Allen B. 2. Hitachi 3. Delta

    Latest single to 3 phase vfd’s? 15-20hp?

    Yeah after a bit of searching and the red flag 90% efficiency rating, definitely Not something l’m interested in. Still remember not that long ago when vfd was not commonly known, (other than big industry) you could snap up the correct 30hp units off of eBay for 2-400 US. Crazy how much...

    Latest single to 3 phase vfd’s? 15-20hp?

    Also, amp rating seems way low for 20hp single phase and this little “use only 20hp motor” seems like they don’t even understand how a vfd’s works

    Eg. Of what l’ve found. This unit on Amazon.ca for only 935.00 and says 20hp but doesn’t look up to it and don’t recognize name. Anyone use this brand?

    Latest single to 3 phase vfd’s? 15-20hp?

    The Hitachi’s were a Great price point and bought them all new. (Was not worth messing with derating larger used 3 phase to me) Unfortunately l’m in Canada, so whatever the US price, costs us significantly more. I believe the Hitachi was 800ish, so was hoping for something 1500 or less. Hard...

    Latest single to 3 phase vfd’s? 15-20hp?

    Hear ya, the Hitachi will run 15hp on a fan or low amp start up, but don’t think it will handle hard starts. A little surprised after all the years that vfd’s have become so popular single to 3 phase, that Hitachi and others didn’t up the HP offerings. Cost vs demand l’m guessing. Probably not...

    I could also run the 447 off of 10hp and use the same WJ200 to power it, but for media blasting and would like the higher CFM capability

    Latest single to 3 phase vfd’s? 15-20hp?

    Hello All, I am familiar with the WJ200 series vfd’s and have been running the largest model from 10 years back powering a 10hp 3 phase motor. Searching around it seems there are now 15-20hp models being advertised for single to 3 phase but l am not familiar with the manufacturers and specs/...
