Does the V1K help with common mode current problems?

The main purpose of the V1K is to address and control the effects of dV/dt on the VFD output. Because of the circuit used, the V1K also reduces the content of common mode current on the line by 30-40%. This is especially useful in the prevention of motor shaft bearing currents which are known to cause premature motor bearing failures in adjustable frequency drive applications.
