Re: Graves preformer motor drive power requirements

Alan,
the data you read off the power cord is the rating of the cord only and has nothing to do with the motor itself. I doubt that the motor in that unit is very large so a 500W transformer should be sufficient.
Alternatively you could plug it into a 1kw transformer and check to see how much current it draws at start up and what it draws continuously and purchase a transformer to meet those needs.
