Re: 220 from a 120 volt outlet?

These vfds do not use a transformer to double the input voltage. I do not know if they raise the voltage at the AC or DC buss but ordinary vfds will only

Re: 220 from a 120 volt outlet?

Variable frequency drives are inverter designs, you can't alter the frequency of the mains. gerry ... On the other hand many VFDs (variable frequency drives)

Re: 220 from a 120 volt outlet?

On the other hand many VFDs (variable frequency drives) use an electronic voltage doubler so that 240v 3 phase motors may be run from 120v single phase power

I should have added lightning as another source of AFCI false trips. gerry

Re: 220 from a 120 volt outlet?

Note, the 2014 NEC requires AFCIs on virtually all house circuits. If a circuit requires a GFI, that can be in the first outlet in the string or usage of a

Re: 220 from a 120 volt outlet?

Supposedly it has a safety interlock to prevent that.

Re: 220 from a 120 volt outlet?

I spotted that right away when I first saw the web site, I thought "Wow" it must be an inverter, converts 120 to 240 and they had been keeping this a secret

Re: 220 from a 120 volt outlet?

They really shouldn't call it a "voltage converter." There's no voltage conversation happening at all.

Re: 220 from a 120 volt outlet?

This is a moderately useless gimmick. It requires you to find two, fairly unloaded 120V circuits on different "legs" of a 240 volt service. Also, they better

Re: 220 from a 120 volt outlet?

Well, it appears that you are correct. I did not see the page that included instructions on how to hook it up, it does clearly state that it uses two inputs

Re: 220 from a 120 volt outlet?

Looking at this, I think it only works if the electric service has 240 volts available but a 240v receptacle is not installed. It has the following note in the

220 from a 120 volt outlet?

I learned something today. I did not know there were commercially available voltage converters that would allow you to take the output from a 120 volt

Re: Modified Sine Wave Inverter

Rob, it is not that I would not want an inverter, not at all. I have several inverters already, but, all are in the 300 to 400 watt range. Some of them are
