Smart-Boost™ Digital Rotary Phase Converters

Smart-Boost is a new breed of Digital Rotary Phase Converter. The Smart-Boosttechnology aids in the startup of motors external of the phase converter downstream. The Smart-Boost Controller uses solid state switching to re-engage the start capacitors at zero degree crossing. Which in turn, surges 600% more current to the motors during their startup.

Designed for: Air compressors, pumps, fans, blowers, large flywheels and any hard starting motor.

600% Motor Starting Boost Current

Built-In Motor Starter

  • Integrated magnetic motor starter complete with on/off switch
  • Power “On” indicating light lets you know the phase converter is on from across the room
  • Raised off bottom for quick shut downs

Power/Phase Protection

  • In the event of a brown out or black out, the Smart-Boost™ Converters disconnects all three line of power.
  • Protecting your machines from single phasing.
  • Protecting everyone from any electrical shock downstream after the phase converter.
SB-Contactors

Easy Installation
