I like to keep things simple as practical up here. I have been trying to standarize equipment and components across my service area. I will likely be in the market for one and possibly more VFD's in the very near future and coming years. I am looking for a economical but a reliable line of VFD's. I do not anticipate needing all kinds of bells and whistles with them. I do not believe needing anything over 5 hp or even 3hp. Single phase, three phase, everything in between. They will be mainly for ventilation fans. Any recommendations? good experiece with any particular line of VFD's? Thanx

I can not use them, they are made in China and the feds have the Buy America clause

I can't attest to their product's performance, but here is a made in the USA source at Drives Warehouse.

Polyspede is their own product.

I've bought Hitachi VFDs from Drives Warehouse in the past, and they were extremely easy to work with.
