Hi there, i am looking at buying a used Simens 1 FT5066-1AF71-4ABO AC 3 phase servo to use as a spindle motor on a mill drill. Just want to know if a normal VFD can drive this motor, not for positioning. I have a SEW Eurodrive Movitrac 0.37kW/0.5HP VFD Type - MC07A004-2B1-4-00 that i would like to use.

Thanks for your help

If it is a P.M. servo then you may have a problem, if an induction motor then it should work if the corrent voltage and HP.
