Issue:
Is there an Altivar drive available that can convert 220V single phase input to 460V three phase output?

Product Line:
All Altivar Variable Frequency Drives and Altistart Soft Starters.

Environment:
All models, All serial numbers.

Cause:
Customer has 460V three phase motors available but only 220V single phase power available.

Resolution:
No, there are no drive products that can convert 220V single phase power to 460V three phase power. There are drives in our product lineup that can convert single phase 230V to three phase 230V. If the motor is dual rated for 208-230V / 460V operation, then wiring it for 230V may be a better option.
