Power to drive a planer/moulder

Wood-Mizer makes an MP260 planer/moulder that requires 230V 3-phase power -- it typically draws between 20 and 32Amps.

I understand I can configure a 3-phase system with three parallel inverter/chargers, but which?

I have a MultiPlus 24/3000/70-50 120V VE.Bus. Can that be used to produce a 230V system or do I need to get three 220-240V units?

I'm off-grid, solar and generator, so a Multiplus should be sufficient?

Thank you for your help!

Cheers,
Kailash

OK, vielen Dank Matthias -- it is a very power-hungry machine. For the 3-phase 230V, I take it I need the Quattro 230V?

For a 3-phase system you need 3 MultiPlus/Quattro.

With a system of 3 MP 3000 you would have around 7,5kW of continuous power (around 14kW peak for a few seconds).
That is not enough for the MP260 it has 13,4kW in total.

So you will need at least 3 MultiPlus/Quatto 5000 -> 13,5kW continuous.
But I think the inrush current of the MP260 will be still to much.
So I think you will need a Quattro with 8kVA or 10kVA only for that machine! If you want to run other machines at the same time too you will need the 15kVA Quattro.
