Question #: 14634

Question: what is the current draw of the 220v VFD

Current Solution

The current draw of the 220V VFD is 10 amps. Since the spindle is rated at 2.2kW, and the mains for the US 220V is in the range of 220V to 240V,

2200W/220V = 10A
2200W/240V = 9.167A

So, the rage of current draw will be between 10A and 9A, but it is advisable to provide a buffer of about 5 more amps if possible.
