    So, given that the AC servo drivers are very similar to 3-phase AC inverter speed controllers used in industrial motor control applications, they are pretty forgiving when it comes to the kind of juice you feed them. The caveat is what you can get out of them with less than ideal input.

    I currently have my drivers using 110v, and have heard that there is no trade-off for doing this. However, when using the AASD-15A drivers JOG mode, and stepping through the speeds at 100 step increments, there is a notable and audible change in frequency only up to about 2300 RPM. The motor and driver are supposedly rated for 3000 RPM, but it doesn't seems like it is going over 2300 RPM. Is this a common side effect that has been found when running these units at 110v 60hz, and will this have any real-world performance impacts if so?

    Just thought I would ask before adding a step-up converter to the mix, only to find that there is some other factor at play.
