Which North American Phase Converter Is Right For You?

NACPES Rotary Phase ConvertersWith the abundance of phase converter types available to you it can be difficult to narrow down your options. Choosing the best phase converter for your application depends on a number of different variables, such as the size and type of the application being used. Consider the following factors when deciding which types of phase converters would be the right fit for you.

Understanding the Differences

Initially, it’s important to understand the different types of converters offered by NAPCES. Rotary phase converters allow equipment to run on 3 phase power when there is a single phase power source, while static phase converters use motor start capacitors to start 3 phase motors on single phase power. These capacitors are disconnected once the motor reaches full RPM and the motor continues to run on the 2 single phase lines of power. Adversely, digital phase converters provide balanced power for all sizes and types of loads, and can productively operate all types of three-phase machinery or equipment within its rated current output.

Selecting the Right Size Phase Converter

After selecting the type of phase converter that would work best for your application, you need to understand that properly sizing a phase converter is extremely important. Selecting the correct size phase converter will insure motors start fast and balanced voltage is provided to all your loads. By pinpointing the most accurate size phase converter, you can help prevent any sort of technical difficulties that might have arisen if it were sized incorrectly. Research our rotary, static and digital phase converters to learn more about their features to decide which equipment would best suit your application.
