This is a 1.5 kilowatt spindle which roughly translates to 2.01 HP. The spindle comes with the inverter (Variable Frequency Drive) that accepts 110v or 220v depending on the option selected.
The spindle is water cooled which requires a water pump and silicon tubing. We are using a 300 gal/hr pump that can be purchased from the home improvement store submerged in a bucket of water, but a chiller can also be used.
The inverter will show the frequency and can be controlled from the computer. The inverter does come with an instruction manual. The spindle with inverter can also run in forward or reverse and up to 400Hz. Note: connecting the inverter to mains power will require wiring of the plug to the inverter. We recommend seeking a licensed electrician for this part of the wiring.
The spindle, by itself, weighs 8.66 lbs.
