I read somewhere that you should keep the VFD away from circuit boards like the tinyg and or breakout boards and that you should separate low voltage from high voltage. I see pictures of panels where the VFD is installed inside the control box right next to the tinyg. Is this ok to do and if not how much of a separation is needed. I build my control box out of a 12" x12" plastic box and I was able to get the VFD, the tinyg, and the 24 volt transformer all into this box. If it is best to separate the tinyg from the VFD I can install the tinyg in a separate box next to the box I already built. If this is ok can I use a plastic box or is a metal box better. It would be easier to move tinyg than it would the VFD. Any suggestions.

Thanks

On my 1ph t3ph 2hp vfd I have emi input filter. Zero phase reactors. And line filters to the motor and input power. Some electric co’s require the filters as well. Filtering between the motor and the vfd keeps it cooler and prolongs life of the motor . Before I had the the filters it caused all sorts of problems with the power circuit and my controller would disconnect.

The smaller vfd\motor combo will have less problems . But it’ll still be noisy. Emi filter on the input power plus a matched zero phase reactor to the motor I’d do at least
