Thanks Hood

Just tried it, connected motor it says Rdy

Motor doesn't start, no power to the terminals the only button that seemed to work was the M button the display said 50 when pressed.

OK that makes sense, M will be for Mode, ie all of the parameters. Maybe going up and down will let you see a parameter that needs setting but without a list I doubt you wont know what they mean. Maybe if you download a manual for one of their other VFDs the parameters will be similar, I found one yesterday for a MD2005 or something like that. Could possibly be that the external buttons have been disabled because they had a remote pot on it for speed control and a switch for Fwd/Rev. Again without knowing the terminals or the parameters to select it will be difficult, but maybe there is some indication of where a pot would connect, moulded into the terminal block.

Phil - you will have to excuse Hood and me.

Actually the inverter you have looks like a neat unit - and you say you have a manual. What sort of power does it give out - is it OK for running a drill press - or even a cross slide mounted drill of some sort.

Hi Jim

Yes it is a nice unit. the rating is actually shown on one of the pictures, 11amp input 240V, 4.3amp output 440V

It is working i didn't remember that i had removed a switch which connects to two of the terminal strips. That is why it didn't work. ::)

I bought it with an pantograph engraver.

Are you going to make me an offer for it as i was going to put it on that well known auction site.

I've nothing to run it with (yet).

Now you have the manual - can it be connected to computer control.

If so give me a price to think about
