Tesla, why do you say 1200 amp? Do you interpret indefinatly to be continuous load? wouldn't that be no smaller than 1250-amp?
I don't know if it was in the specs or if I am recalling this from another site, but I thought the controller was set to only allow locked rotor current for 20 seconds.
Do you guys normally meter these? I have a meeting set up with the utility for sometime this week, so I'll find out what they want, but I'm curious what some have done in the past.
