Issue: Can you use the Altivar ATV18 on single phase motors?
 
Product Line: ATV18
 
Environment: All

Resolution: No, the biggest reason is that most single phase motors have a capacative start. They can only run in one direction and when you slow motor to 70% or less, the capacitor comes back into the circuit.
