Rotary and Static Phase Converters. They run all types of equipment
that need 3 phase power.
The Phase Converters run off of 240 volt single phase power, that is in your home
The size of converter you need depends on the size of the motors
on your equipment. Some require special sizing to get the right
a 5 HP Rotary converter You may also run more than one motor off
the same converter, as long as it is not larger than the 5 hp and
run a combined total
hp of all motors up to 15 hp. With Rotary converters you get full
power and instant reversing.
Here are some sizing examples:
A 5 hp
Table Saw would need a 5 hp converter.
A 7-1/2 HP Gear Head Lathe would need
at least a 10 HP Rotary Converter.
A 10 HP Air compressor would need a 20
HP rotary converter, Air compressors have harder initial
15 HP CNC Machine would need a 30 HP CNC Converter. The larger
converter is needed to run the machine properly to maintain voltage.
The harder the starting load of an Air
Compressor and the type of machine as with Computer Controlled
machines require a Converter that is 2 times larger than their
This is a partial list of equipment that Converters are used on:
Machine Shop Equipment: Lathes
Wood Shop Equipment: Table Saws
Pumps Hydraulic and Water
All of our Rotary Converters have a switch to turn them off
and on. (see picture. )Nothing extra to buy.
Totally enclosed fan cooled heavy duty idler motors.
Our Converters have easy wiring 1 box for 240v single phase in and
1 box for 240v 3 phase out
We also have remote control starting of the converter
with our hand held remote unit for an
Static Converters run Three-Phase motors on single phase
power at 2/3 rated horse power. Standard static converters are for
equipment that does not have much of a load at start up and few starts
an hour. Heavy duty static converters are for machines that start
more often and that have a bigger load on the motor, not a free
wheeling situation. Choose the size for the motor on your machine.
These static converters are usually just for one motor or just one machine.
Static Converters are not for Welders,
CNC Machines, Air Compressors, Refrigeration equipment, Hydraulic or Water Pumps,
2 Speed motors
or any machine
that needs all three phases to power for the machine to work properly.
For indoor use only.
