Which model of portable specialized frequency converter to choose? The general industrial or special one?

We recommend to use the portable specialized frequency converter Victar PSFC-400 for the following reasons.

Firstly, in order to use the general industrial converter, you will need a capacity of over 11 kW to provide the sufficient power. Victar PSFC-400 has maximum power of 25A at the nominal capacity of 3 kW and peak loads.

Secondly, the special converter is designed considering the specifications of the electric chainsaw motor. It can be operated in the range of -35 – +40 degrees Celsius.

220V or 380V?

During testing, the Victar portable specialized frequency converter PSFC -400 showed better results with the 380V input voltage.

Why must the converter be used? May it not be used?

The converter is required to be used for the operation of the Victar electric chainsaw. It is the power supply source for the required frequency. A general socket has the frequency of 50 Hz. The Victar electric chainsaw requires 400 Hz.

Why does the bar “burn” and how to avoid it?

The main reason is that the lubricant does not pass to the cutting attachment. It may be caused by a lack of oil in the oil tank, non-adjustment of the oil pump, hard tension of the chain or dull chain. We recommend to drop the bar tip in oil between the shifts to extend the service period of the bar.

Why does the oil leak and how to avoid it?

  1. It is necessary to check the seal of the gearbox.
  2. The second reason is the overflow in the gearbox and oil slobbering through the breather.
  3. Check the rings of the oil pump.

Why does the oil pump break and how to avoid it?

It is usually due to an improper adjustment. If the plunger of the oil pump is too tightened, the eccentric cam of the gearbox shaft may break it.
