Issue:
Can you use the ATV12 drive on 230vac 1 phase input and get 230vac 3 phase output?

Product Line:
Altivar 12

Environment:
All

Cause:
Needs to feed the drive 1 phase input and have 3 phase voltage coming out of the drive.

Resolution:
You can use the ATV12 version with the suffix M2 for 230vac 1 phase input and it will give you 230vac 3 phase output.

Please keep in mind that the load coming off the output of the drive can only be a inverter duty rated motor.  You can not use the drive as a phase conveter and power up a machine with contactors, transformers etc.
