Can you use 240v to supply a 208v EFlex without bypass?

Issue:
Can you use 240v to supply a 208v EFlex without bypass?

Product Line:
Altivar 61 ATV61

Environment:
All

Cause:
Only 240v AC Supply available

Resolution:
The drive inside the EFlex is rated for either 230v range or 460v range and yours is rated for 230v.  The enclosure is rated for 208v ac because with lower voltage you get higher current, more dissipated heat.  If your EFlex's had bypass, most likely the bypass contactor would be rated for 208v, but these do not.  240v is fine for these and probably actually better.
