    3 Phase Invertors Again

    I'm looking at some spud gear, finding 1ph is impossible. Anyway it's a fixed head stitcher with conveyor underneath, so say 1/2 horse motor on conveyor running constantly, with a very small motor running intermittently on the actual stitcher gubbins. My question is can I run both these successfully on a single inverter?

    TIA.

    should be ok as long as you oversize the inverter a bit
    i got 2 motors running on my lathe
    the main drive and a coolant pump

    As above, oversize the inverter and you'll be fine for intermittent loads. As its not going to be a massive starting current you won't need to go silly on the oversizing.

    We use a Drives Direct unit (http://www.drivesdirect.co.uk/) for 240V single ph in to 415V 3 phase out for a couple of machines, worth a call to check your requirements.
