  • Gs3 drive sizing

    is it possible to use a 100hp Gs3 drive on a 60hp motor?

    Yes. BUT, if you cannot set parameter P0.01 to the full load amp rating of your motor, then you'll need to purchase a separate overload device to protect the motor from burnout.

      Also something to keep in mind, the NEC requires the wires feeding the drive be sized at 125% of the drive input current rating. Of course, sometimes that can end up being a big deal when oversizing a drive.
