    Can anyone help please? I have just purchased an inverter to control a 3 phase
    motor on a metalturning lathe. I would like to fit an remote variable speed
    controller rather than use the keypad on the unit do I just need to connect a
    10Kohm potentiometer to the control bus in order to achieve this or is
    something more needed.
    Regards and thanks to all who reply.
  2. I suggest you ask the manufacturer of the inverter if such a
    modification is possible.

    I don't think anyone here could make even a wild guess without knowing
    the make and model of the inverter. (But my wild guess is that unless
    there is already a connector for a remote pot speed control, it isn't
    possible (or the manufacturer won't admit it!)).
