Do you have access to the motor within the feeder to see if it s capable of dual voltage input? It s very unlikely to find a motor that will only accept 440V. It would be understandable if the company making the feeder only listed one voltage as having additional hands of unknown skill rewiring their product outside of the factory could reduce reliability.

Look in the picture of the motor plate posted above. It appears to clearly say 440v twice, with no other voltage numbers listed as far as I can tell. Would you mind looking at the post above this one with the pic and give me your opinion?

If it is 440v, what kind of transformer would I need? Can anyone post a link to a specific transformer? Once I get the transformer all that I would need then would either be a VFD or an RPC, right?

Also, could I get the motor rewind for a lower voltage and take away the need for the transformer?
