FE Series VFD/Inverter with Other Motors

Postby om_tech_support_JT » Thu Feb 24, 2011 7:52 pm

Q: Will your FE series VFD (Variable Frequency Drive) / inverter work with other brands of motors?

A: Yes. The FE series inverters will work with any 3-phase AC motor in the range of 200~230 vAC (+/- 10%). It is optimized for our motors - like any of our controllers and drivers. If you use a 3rd party motor, we recommend a speed setting range of 10~80 Hz. Operating it lower or higher than the recommended range may overheat the motor. As long as the motor does not overheat, it will be fine. Check your motor documentation to see its overheat instructions. For our motors, the overheating temperature is 100 deg C. Our motors have either impedance protection or thermal protection. For impedance protected motors, the temperature rise is limited. For thermally protected motors, the motor will shut itself off if it overheats.
