23 January 2021

Issue:
Capacitive loads on drives.

Product Line:
All Variable Frequency Drives

Environment:
All models and serial numbers

Cause:
None

Resolution:
No, variable frequency drives are designed for inductive 3 phase motors only.   Using these Fads on electronic circuit boards can cause short circuit faults.  They cannot be used on capacitive loads.
