    Default Help finding VFD for Spindle

    I purchased the following Chinese spindle motor, and got some bad advice on the VFD. The VFD is a KBMA-24D series from KB Electronics, which is obviously incompatible because it will not source 400 Hz.

    The motor I have uses German bearings and claims low runout. The specs are:

    Product information
    Technical Details

    Manufacturer: Taishi
    Part Number: USTS0811FG
    Is Discontinued By Manufacturer: No
    Color: Silver
    Material: Steel
    Power Source: Ac
    Voltage: 220 Volts
    Wattage: 800 watts
    Horsepower: 1 hp

    Engraved on motor: 0.8KW 220V 6.5A 400HZ

    The VFD the Rep now suggests, again, does not source 400 Hz, and costs nearly $400, so I thought I'd try getting advice from the forum. I would prefer running the VFD with 120V/60Hz input voltage if that is all possible, but if not I can drop another 240V line in my shop. I have a limited budget so I don't want to end up with another VFD that doesn't drive this motor.

    have you seen these?

    i'm not an expert but it can do 400hz and should be able to manage the 800w.

    i had one for my 2.2kw spindle but it wasn't big enough so i ahve gone with a 220v version
