It has standard windings and 240V controller.
240V and 0.7A per phase on the motor right now.
There is a massive difference in current depending on the direction of rotation which I assume is due to the positioning of the hall sensor.
I've been using FP motor in a centrifuge for the last 8 years.
It spin dries a large basket of washed lettuce leaves at 600 rpm for one minute.
Previously I couldnt find a suitable brushless DC drive and I was running it without hall sensors from a VFD with careful tuning to allow it to grab sync at startup.
With that arrangement it had virtually zero torque at startup but once it started moving it was fine.
Despite one drive failure during that time it worked really well but I never could get it to run on anything other than the very early motor with small magnets.
I found this brushless DC drive and wanted to give it a go with a more readily available motor.http://www.baldor.com.au/product_view.php?PROD_ID=154
All seems good now with the standard FP hall sensor.
Fantastic low speed torque and more than enough for its task.
Fingers crossed it will give a good working life.
Thanks for the reply.
