    The VFD's we use are Powtran and they have excellent documentation and factory support. There would be hundreds in service driving CV's in Oz and I know of one failure and it was running continuously 8 hours a day in a commercial workshop.

    Several past threads discussed this. Here's one from 2011: https://sawmillcreek.org/showthread....art-on-Cyclone

    2011! Time flies when you are having fun. My comments in that thread were written before I had become the CV distributor for Australia and my cyclone was using a Huanyang VFD. Shortly after I began selling CV's in Australia Huanyang kindly discontinued the model we were using and fortunately I was forced to find & use the Powtran which was a very good move as it had so many advantages, was a far better specced unit and way better made. I can't speak too highly of the company to tell the truth.
