    Hi all

    just after a bit of advice, I’m currently using the above controller with my er11 spindle, just want to know if the would be considered as a VFD, Only asking as I’m looking at upgrading to an er16 24k rpm spindle and want to know if I will need to order a separate VFD.

    Thanks

    You will need a VFD for the ER16 spindle
    This one works similar, but its DC, and its not a VFD, rather its a BLDC controller.

    So with a VFD, Can I still connect it up to my x-pro to control he spindle rpm?

    Yip, but expect some growing pains in setting up the VFD. Hit the search box in the top right with "xpro vfd" for info
