Or wired to a rpc.then to motor..kinda defeats the reason to have a vfd except for variable speed..what size motor could this run..thanks..

It does say "Input 3 phase" "output 3 phase" .4KW which equals 400 watts and there are 745.7 watts in one horsepower so that would be .54 horses,
so 1/2 horsepower.
Guess it to be a speed controller ??? for a 220 volt 3 phase 1/2 horse motor ??
Unless its really cheap, I'd forgetaboutit.

it's a very nice inverter, but it is useless unless you have 3 phase input
