120v spindle on 240v vfd

Quick question.

Can a spindle rated for 120v be run off of a vfd that is 240 volts input?

I don’t believe so. Some VFD’s will let you control the output voltage though. Someone with more knowledge on this will have to give you better advice.

Hi Juan,

I have been wondering the same thing, but i went for a stepdown transformer in front of the VFD.

I had some good feedback though from @LiamN and @Harpoz , in a topic that was not at all about this :wink: Maybe you find it useful (it’s somewhere halfway down)
