Electrical Power Question:
I have a 575volt milling machine and want to convert it to 220volt, what are my options and which is the best one?
Thanks- Bill.

Hi Bill - Great Electrical Repair Question!
I would start by contacting the manufacturer who knows the machine better than anyone and get their advice.

Your options from my experience will be to use a transformer to convert the voltage properly, and the manufacturer may know of a reliable source for such a transformer

The exact specifications of the type of electrical power requirement of the mill and the exact power that you have available will need to be taken into consideration, along with Starting Current loads etc.

Be Careful and Be Safe - Never Work on Energized Circuits!
