    Also remember you can run a 3 phase drive with just single phase using both interposing legs, the drive will be de-rated but it will output 3 phase power. For my test bench I use a 120VAC to 220VAC buck boost transformer on all three of the listed errands. You will also need a small 3 phase motor. I bought all of the components off eBay, you just have to keep an eye out and search for deals.

    I've made good experiences with the Danfoss 6000 series but they are out of business. The successors FC-102 need more time to prepare the startup.

    For my test bench I use a 120VAC to 220VAC buck boost transformer on all three of the listed errands. You will also need a small 3 phase motor. I bought all of the components off eBay, you just have to keep an eye out and search for deals.

    I see all three brands on eBay after a quick search. You will want to search for:
    ABB ACH550 (a -2 final part number is 208/220)
    Danfoss FC102
    Yaskawa Z1000 (BACnet) or V1000 (Modbus).

    The last one I picked up was a tiny V1000 for Modbus testing for around $50 including shipping a few months ago.

    You can also run smaller HP motors (turn down is generally 1/5 rated HP) do look for something 5HP or smaller. Unless you gave access to 460VAC get a 208/220 (these seem to be rarer).
