I am pulling my hair out...I bought a Bauer Jnr 11 dive compressor
with a European 230 v single
phase 50 hz motor
. On my boat , I have a new 7.6 D-NET generator
, 115v 60hz.
I turfed the motor
and was advised to get a 220v , 60hz motor , which I did. After speaking to a marine
electrician , he advised against it because my genset can either be a 220v or 115v , but not both at the same time. I would have all sort of balancing issues etc.
Now it seems I have to turf this new motor , have not even run it!!
My question is this..has any one got the similar set up and will the 7.6 kw genset Handel the start up spike of a 115v 60 hz motor that I should maybe have bought in the first place ?
The 115 v motor draws 29 amps when running
The genset limit is 63 amps
People have recommended a frequency drive at a thousand $ plus !
What about a soft start for a single
phase 115v motor ?
