The only drives rated for single phase 480 V supply to run a 3 phase 460 V motor is the ATV312.

The ONLY approved documents we have for single phase in, 3 phase out applications are the Annex for the ATV71 Quick Start Guide and the ANNEX for the ATV61 Quick Start Guide, and the ATV312 Getting Started Annex.

All previous documentation including Pricing Guides, Errata sheets and the letters from Product Management are superseded by these documents and all inquiries regarding this type of application need to be referred to the appropriate published document.

For any 480 V single phase applications outside of the HP range permitted in the ATV312 Getting Started Annex, please contact Bonitron for possible solutions (http://www.bonitron.com/drive-schneider.html)
