I hope its not getting boring with the questions about Hayward Motor replacements. Possibly some of this is driven by new energy costs in Canada...?
Anyway, I have a Capacitor start Hayward Super Pump 1HP motor. Not gonna play well with a VFD I want to add into the system.
So, I am wondering if someone can suggest a suitable replacement. Size and operating specs (close enough) and will accept variable input frequency. Not to worry about it being a 3PH motor....I can tap the first two terminals of the three on the VFD.
Why not get a VS rated Hayward pump? I have some automation that I've done and I want to incorporate a programmable VFD which I can control through my home software. Best keep the VFD part separate from the pump. The Hayward style pumps with onboard VFDs have very basic control/timing.
(best if someone can suggest a compatible 3PH replacement....)
Anyway, thanks for any help and advice. Just trying to save on energy costs. And it'll be a fun project.
