Issue:
Is the ATV630 (or ATV930) Process drive available with single phase input and 3 phase output?

Product Line:
Altivar 630
Altivar 930

Environment:
Application 

Cause:
Wants to know if the ATV630 Process drive is offered in 1 phase input 3 phase output. 

Resolution:
The ATV630 is now approved (Sept. 2018)  for some single phase input, 3 phase output applications. 
See the updated Annex to the Getting Started with Altivar PRocess ATV600 document below:
https://www.schneider-electric.com/en/download/document/EAV64300/

This document limits this type of installation to the 240V drives and for applications upto 20hp when used on Pump applications.
Note: Do not use D55M3 and D75M3 for 1-phase application.

At this time, no ATV900 Process drives are approved for this type of application.
There is also no approval for 460V drives in either the ATV600 or ATV900.
They are designed strictly for 3 phase input power to run a 3 phase motor.

The ATV900 series may be used in conjunction with a 3rd party input bridge from a company like Bonitron (http://www.bonitron.com/m3712.html).
