    Does anyone have a suggestion for VFD drive that can drive a 3-phase LIM for 0.5 seconds at 208-240v @ 20A? The input power available is 240v single phase.

    I imagine that the LIM appears the same as any normal induction motor?
    If so any such as Hitachi etc should fit the bill?
    .5 sec is extremely short, what is the application.
    Max.

    This is a LIM Launcher demonstrator, where the launch armature is less than 200g. The ideal solution would be a custom built inverter/controller but no funds yet to have one built.

    They seem to specialize in motion controllers, not inverters or VFDs.
