Dec 2 - the VFD

They are 'cleaning up' at work today and the 300 HP VFD that I was wanting a gate pass for was close to being thrown in the scrap heap. I caught them before the fork truck picked it up.

I will be bringing our utility trailer to work to pick up the VFD, line and load reactors. If I want to work on removing the VFD from the cabinet (6 feet tall, 3 feet wide, 18 inches deep) then my car will be outside and these parts in the garage. A bit of incentive to get some work done on SalvageS10!

The VFD is larger than I remember. It needs to be re-arranged to fit into the bed of the S10, but Im confident that I can make it fit.

The VFD has not been run for 2 years. It was in running condition when it was turned off and decommissioned. I'll need to apply some elbow grease to clean it up, and I'll likely disconnect the capacitors before powering it up for a test.
