Hello, my partner, welcome here!
Variable Frequency Drive VFD With the motor installed, it was time to make it run without installing three-phase power to the shop. I asked around and snooped on the web for the cheapest variable-frequency drive VFD that I could find. This was disappointing research because the cheapest drives were from offshore eBay dealers.Inquiry Online

Greetings and salutations Im a hobbyist who recently upgraded from a Grizzly step pulley benchtop machine to a Bridgeport variable speed mill with a DRO and Power feed. Im attempting to program a an A2 series VFD for operating this machine which has a 1.5 HP 230 V Motor. YouTube and Google have come up empty largely because the drive I have does not have a potentiometer switch on its panel.

Feb 19, 2019 Setting up a Bridgeport mill VFD Members writing in the Bridgeport and Hardinge Mills and Lathes forum suggested this forum for help in using a VFD for my 2hp Bridgeport mill. The consensus was that a VFD was better suited than a rotary phase converter. So, simply put which VFD should I buy for a 240VAC single phase power source

Jan 19, 2011 Wire from the disconnect to the VFD enclosure and then from the VFD to the 3 phase motor. The VFD will convert 1 phase input to 3 phase output.

Oct 03, 2010 The VFD can provide 3hp, so it will give the full 3hp available from the 2hp head. Apparently the mill motor is strong enough that you can load it to 3hp as long as you use it for less than 30 minutes, then let it cool. This is one I used FM50-203-C I didnt have much to spend. At 185 it is less expensive than a converter, smaller, easier to ...
Feb 19, 2017 Before you buy the vfd, just check the motor on your bridgeport, some of them have the motor star point buried deep in the windings, your choice whether to try and dig it out or go for a 240 to 415 vfd.

Sep 26, 2010 For a milling machine, Id recommend a VFD as Mike mentioned. Make sure you find one that matches your inputoutput phase and voltage. For a lathe, a rotary phase converter works fine. Ive got 2 mills on VFDs and 3 lathes on RPCs. Reply With Quote. 09-26-2010, 1236 AM 6. sandman2234. View Profile

With a Variable Frequency Drive VFD in hand, as well as some other parts, it was time to start figuring out how to wire things up. To learn more about how I selected the VFD, visit my Discovering the Variable Frequency Drive page.. As built, this old mills spindle motor was controlled with contactors.
VFD isnt just a cool acronym, it means something awesome I havent even mentioned yet. Variable Frequency variable motor speed. Using a VFD means Ill be able to vary the speed of the spindle motor electronically. Having an electronically variable speed spindle motor is something my mill hasnt had entire life. Previously the spindle motor could only run at full speed in either forward or reverse, and if
Jul 09, 2017 This post is going to cover my saga on getting a Bridgeport type mill and larger engine lathe running off of a Variable Frequency Drive VFD. Both machines run 3HP motors. The equipment are a 1960s Lathe made in Japan built like a B29 Stratofortress, and a KV4 type Knee Mill thats a
Nov 23, 2019 This has been powering my M-Head BP for more that 25 years without issue with less noise than the VFD powering my lathe. Today, VFDs are much more affordable, with better support and reliability than back when. So I would probably look at that option if the need arose to replace my DC drive, but I wouldnt rule out the DC drive either. ...
VFDs for such as your mill come in 115v and 220v single phase sources, your choice depending on your shop voltages. A second option is VHz or sensorless vector control. VHz is the historical. older type which has no compensatory feedback to boost the motor power at low speeds.
You can use a 3 phase input VFD, and power it off of single phase. You just need to derate the VFD by a factor of 1.73 to account for only a single phase of power. Or to put it in more useful terms, you need to buy a more powerful VFD to accommodate your 5 HP motor, using the formula of 5 HP 1.73 8.7 HP.
