Re: 3-phase reactor

Original poster: "J. Aaron Holmes" <jaholmes@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>

These kinds of three-phase reactors go by on eBay all
the time.  They don't seem too useful (in the TC
world).  Even at 1.5mH, you're only talking about half
an ohm at 60hz.  It'll pass hundreds of amps before
you even get to 120V, yet it's only rated for 24A.
I'm having visions of smoke :-)
