    Hi all,

    Just browsing around and I noticed Amazon (chinese reseller obviously) are selling this VFD, which has a good price and is under "Prime"...

    I wondered if anyone has taken a punt on one rather than the usual Huanyang units we seem to be fond of.

    Hi Clive

    Just idle curiosity mainly. I wondered if another company might have improved on the HY in some way for the same price roughly - the Genorth does have a pot on the front for frequency dialing, which I guess is an upgrade if you don't use control via MACH3.

    If my current one goes pop (I'm on my 2nd unit) I might take a punt anyway just to see.

    Why not Siemens or ABB?
    You think that's too expensive? You're not a Model Engineer are you? :D

    Chris.Some of them do have a pot on the front, but a pot is only about 2 and 5 mins to fit the hole is already there and the pot fits straight onto the pcb board on the front, I have done a post on fitting it on the forum http://www.mycncuk.com/threads/7388-...hlight=fitting

    Thanks Clive - I never knew it could be retro fitted.

    Certainly an option - I thought the Siemens VFDs were actually more expensive than the 198 I've seen a 2.2kw model for.

    Oh they are, but how many cheap jobs will you bought in 10+ years for your application and how cheap does that make them?
