Whether you work in an industrial setting or have an in-home shop*, static phase converters from North America Phase Converters & Electrical Supply (NAPCES) are a great option for your power needs. Having been industrialized and verified for production success, our static phase converters run 3 phase equipment from single phase power. So how does a static phase converter work?
A static phase converter uses motor start capacitors to start a 3 phase motor 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. Two-thirds of the motor windings are being energized, producing approximately two-thirds of the motor’s power.
Well-designed features of our static phase converters are what make them capable of starting a 3 phase motor on single phase power. With an easily accessible wiring junction box, universal mounting options, high voltage start capacitors, digital/electronic motor starting relay and a robust start circuit, you’ll find the static phase converter units to be easy to install and reliable.
Offering two static phase converter models to choose from–Standard Heavy Duty (SPC) and High-Low Double Horsepower Rated (HL) – NAPCES has the static phase converters and rotary phase converters to fit your needs. Our Standard Heavy Duty offers classic horsepower ranges while our High-Low Double Horsepower Rated is essentially two Standard Heavy-Duty units built into one.
With a Lifetime Warranty and quality design constructed in the U.S.A, static phase converters from North America Phase Converters & Electrical supply are a dependable and long-term addition to your roster.
