Phase Converters transform electric energy into single or multiple phases. Their design renders them capable of starting motors
within the rated horsepower range. Moreover, the products are always ready for installation, plus if you do it correctly, you will enjoy trouble-free service for many years.
While choosing phase converters, you must factor in the power rating of the motor you intend to operate. Static Phase Converters run motors at fractions of the rated horsepower. The motors must be within the horsepower range of the converter. However, with smaller motors, you can start them one at a time.
As for Rotary Phase Converters, they are designed to run three-phase equipment from a single-phase source. They can aptly handle motors with fractional horsepower and go all the way to the rating on the nameplate. However, you must be careful not to connect a phase converter with a motor that is beyond its capacity.
