Sabina Drives - We have 4x T6800 series Sabina 75 HP DC drives - 480 VAC 3 phase input.  300 VDC Field, 500 VDC armature output.  One was being used in one of our chairlifts up until 3 months ago (has a stuck field economizer relay) I've been told that 2 others should work but were only ever purchased to keep as spares. One of the 4 is a parts unit that is missing fans and mainboard.  We have several books (see pictures) with wiring diagrams, specs, etc.  There is also 2 extra mainboards included, one is a 6801 and one is an 801 series mainboard.  As well we have a bunch of extra contactors, capacitors, breakers FET's, relays, fuses and small parts etc that go along with, many are NOS never installed including 12 voltage level detector/tach/overspeed Sabina boards and 4 current unbalance/phase loss boards.  All told theres about a pallet worth of stuff we're selling, should fit fine in the bed of a small truck.  Can deliver if necessary, we'd prefer not to ship due to risk of damage but if necessary we can strap to a pallet and drop at our local depot for $100 + freight.  Asking $1200 OBO + Shipping out of all of it or trade for 200 HP 480VAC VFD.
