Hi, anyone here bought VFD's from ebay and have any comments on them? the local place wants like $410+ 'with a small inbound freight charge added' (Why do I have to pay freight on an item im picking up localy... BS, And is that pre or post added?) for thier LOWEST end 2hp VFD..
Ebay prices start at about $210 for someone with 99.3% feedback selling them.
I know some chinese cheapo high power electronics are compleat junk and won't even last 6 months (1kw lamp ballists, plasma cutters), but how about these VFD's? are they known to be junk or a decent buy for HSM use?
And what exactly features should I look for that might not be standard? (Application is a lathe)
Like, if it doesnt say it has a breaking resistor/DC injection, does that mean it can't do it? Or are things just so standard they are not worth mentioning?
Whats this 'Sensorless Vector or V/ Hz' option some of them have?
