Ok I’m getting ready to order my Sawstop and was speaking to them and have a question for sawstop users 3 phase. Anybody out there using an American Rotary digital phase converter? Sawstop indicated that some RPC’s if the sine wave is not perfect can cause an error and fire the brake cartridge. I spoke with AR, and have tested mine, and across all three legs they are within 3% of each other which is great. Sawstop indicated that if there is an issue putting the generated leg in the center lug (or red lug) would resolve the issue since that leg is not used by the braking system.

Any body using three phase in this configuration?

Why would you order a three phase saw if you only have single phase power? Why not just order a single phase model?

I didn’t even know they made Sawstop saws in three phase.

If there were a possibility of this system firing the cartridge, I would put the red leg in the center. Why risk running it any other way?
