I am in the process of converting a Bridgeport Series1 Boss 5 mill to PC based using a VFD to control the spindle. For now I am going to run the original stepper motors and drives.
I have 220V single phase in the shop.
The main transformer T2 powering the drives has specs:
3 Phase Transformer 60hz
Primary: 230/460V 10/5A
What is the best way to power the drives with single phase 220v? Do I need a dedicated rotary phase converter to power the T2 transformer?
Any help or direction would be appreciated!
