    Thanks. Out of interest, how much 220V Current do you feed to each one? 32A or more?

    hydrovane is wired into the back of a socket on 32a ring main , hsd is still just ran off a 13 amp plug!
    my workshop supply is 60 amp- but that runs lights etc too . the lights will dim briefly when the hydrovane starts up .
    but- if it allows me to use big boy stuff from single phase i can cope with that.
    ps. hydrovane was set as instant off- ie no deceleration- as it definately didnt like that!

    Perfect, thanks. I'm running 32A, could probably go up to 60A if needed.

    Ordered last week, was told it would be sent via DHL but now been sent via EMS. Problem is that the EMS tracking number shows no info yet John (supplier) says not to worry, 6-10 delivery.

    Should I be concerned?

    Thanks

    Just checked mine via 17track, number not recognised. Did you deal with John directly? I have him on skype. I'm currently threatening to cancel the order as there is no proof this has actually been sent, despite his assurances that it has.

    I've had tracking numbers that don't get recognised before, so I wouldn't worry yet.

    DHL China seem to produce a bizarre tracking number that doesn't get recognised by DHL, yet it'll be the tracking number on the parcel, and EMS stuff will often get re-numbered once it reaches the destination country.

    Thanks, no sure what the point is then with respect to providing a tracking number, to track my parcel, that doesnt allow me, to track. Bizarre.

    yes i dealt with john. i have had a lot of drives from him- they have always arrived.
    maybe being made to order etc? i know a special i ordered took around a week to test/dispatch.
    give it a week . - you wont find these cheaper anywhere else. i know tracking via china is a bit hit n miss. did you purchase via aliexpress?

    Hi, no, directly via him, he sent me a proforma, I paid via Paypal. This was due to the resistor not being listed anywhere, so this was 'custom' however the VFD is standard. Will give it this week and see what happens.
