Subject:
Inverter is always on???

Frank
>Got my new lathe last week (Powermatic 3520a)and have VFD for the first time. I've noticed that the Inverter is always on, even when the lathe is not, and is slightly warm but not hot. I've been assured that this is normal, but I'm curious what general practice is. Do I just leave it on in all of the time, or should I unplug or otherwise cut power when not using the lathe?
thanks, frank
