Re: Graves preformer motor drive power requirements
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.
