Anyone running a SawStop on an off-grid solar inverter
I just bought a 3HP Sawstop professional and discovered that it will not operate on my inverters (two stacked Outback VFX3524’s, giving 240V). Even though the inverters supply enough starting current for other tools with similar starting loads, the voltage sag (170V for 100ms or so) is enough for the Sawstop logic to decide it’s an error condition and shut down. (In fact, the first time I tried, it actually triggered the brake! In by-pass mode the contactor slaps in and out.)
I was planning an upgrade to my system and now the saw adds new requirements. Can anyone point to an inverter that will allow the Sawstop to operate?
It’s not enough to just look at the specs, as my limited experience suggests they don’t provide enough detail to determine if the Sawstop will actually function.
