This is too light. You need a unit that can handle at least 5 KVA for safety.
This unit will support reverse of course, but it
will not reverse by itself. Reverse is achieved by swapping any 2 phases of the
output. You would feed the output of this to a
motor switch. However you may find that the whole machine requires 3 phase
power, not just the motor. Speed control is achieved by
changing the frequency applied to the motor, but you may have an issue with the
rest of the electrics not being compatible to
variable frequency. You may wish to find a 5 KVA solid state, fixed frequency
inverter that can be fed by a single phase source.
It will be simpler and you would have the ability to use the output for other 3
phase equipment, of course, not at the same time.
I have come to agree with you Pete C. There is too much at stake and
trying to save 50 bucks and risk this system is just plain dumb.
I bought this item
It does have electric braking.
I definitely want this mill to run from single phase.
Generally, 3-phase motor reverssing is accomplished at the spindle motor 's
not at the VFD device.
I am looking at this to see if I can run my mill's spindle with it.
It is a 1 phase VFD. What I do not understand is, does it support
reversing of the motor (reverse).
My German is not as good unfortunately.
