  • Anyone using a teco VFD on a Bridgeport?


    I have a (new to me) Bridgeport that I need
    to get up and running now that I've sold my
    RF-30. I'd like to use a VFD to convert from single phase 220 to three phase. Anyone had
    any dealings with dealerselectric.com? Their
    teco FM100-202-N1 looks nice w/ the speed control knob. Any advice appreciated; this would be my first vfd.

    Thanks -

    - Bart

      Toshiba single phase in, 3 phase out, 2hp model here. I left the bridgeport overloads in series, wired them up to the control circuit.

      Works great. I kept thinking it cost 200$ but the reciept in my bridgeport book says 305$...

        A couple friends of mine have used dealerselectric and been quite satisfied.

        I got my VFD from Motor Drives International www.vfds.com , to give you another choice. At the time, dealerselectric didn't have anything that matched my needs. Based on a sample of one MDI is good to deal with.

          I have purchased 2 TECO's from Dealers Electric. I am very happy with both and the service I received from them. One was for a mill and the other for a lathe.
