Product Features

100% Power
100% Power

The output of the Rotary Phase Converter is closer to being a true 3-phase source that the Static Converter. This provides more power to the tool motor, and also brings it up a speed faster. The Rotary Converter is best served when you have a motor which is started and stopped frequently, and you need the full power of the motor. Furthermore, a single Rotary Converter can drive several different 3-phase tools, whereas a Static is built for a specific machine.

Quality Best!
Quality Best!

Inverter Spike Resistant magnet wire wound motors with ISR wire are up to 100 times more resistant to voltage spikes and high frequencies, in addition Class F insulation is the highest grade of insulation available. Plus the winding is wrapped with a high quality cotton tape. Estimated lifetime is 8500 hours compared to other competitors' insulation with an estimated lifetime is 1800 hours.

Optional Push Button & Mag
Optional Push Button & Mag

An added convenience and safety, Start and Stop the phase converter at the panel with a push of a button, with a built in magnetic starter, also in the event of a power failure, the converter will stay in the off position once the power is restored.

Precision Voltage Balanced Within 2%
Precision Voltage Balanced Within 2%

Every phase converter is tested right before it is shipped to make sure it is within specifications. We voltage balance our converters so that voltage sensitive equipment and significantly smaller loads will not see unbalanced currents. Voltage on our converter are adjustable to meet your needs.

Installation Made Easy
Installation Made Easy

Phoenix Phase Converter makes it easy! Installation in minutes! Loose connections can lead to major damages, nuts, and bolts can come loose in time. With a built-in oversized nickel plated power distribution block and set screws you can be sure to avoid corrosion and get a secure connection.

Grow When Your Business Grows
Grow When Your Business Grows

When you get equipment that requires a larger phase converter, you can upgrade your Phoenix Phase Converter too. Just purchase an additional phase converter to easily parallel the two phase converters together. Example: Turn a 20HP into a 40HP or a 20HP into a 30HP. Check out our 3 phase converters

Totally Enclosed Fan Cooled vs Open Drip Proof

Totally Enclosed Fan Cooled [TEFC]
Totally Enclosed Fan Cooled [TEFC]

TEFC Motors are more reliable. Air flows over the motor and have much more iron for cooling the motor and provide more power.

Open Drip Proof [ODP]
Open Drip Proof [ODP]

Open Motors--Pull foreign objects in, along with the air for cooling. Not good.

Always purchase a rotary converter with a Heavy Duty Cast Iron Totally Enclosed Fan Cooled rotary motor. They are more durable, run cooler because of the amount of iron used in the motor and they provide more power then a rotary motor that is manufactured with rolled steel and its an open style motor. Open style rolled steel rotary motors are much cheaper for a converter manufacturer to purchase, they do not weigh very much so they are cheaper on shipping charges. ODP style motors allow moisture, dust and dirt and insects to enter the windings and bearings. Insects love the heat of the motors and will end up making a home inside the motor. The internal fan on the rotor, will suck dust in that accumulates on the windings and forms an insulation barrier that will not allow the winding to cool properly over time. If you take a look at all the woodworking and machine shop equipment that manufacturers provide, you will notice that they all use totally enclosed fan cooled motors on their equipment for the same reason. They are better motors.

How do phase converters measure up to utility three phase?

Three phase power from an electric company is frequently expensive, or often not even available. All features available with three phase power (full load torque, locked rotor, breakdown torque, and full horse power) are available with a phase converter but at a much less expensive cost to the consumer.

Are all phase converters manufactured at equal levels?

Absolutely not! A problem commonly found with a poorly constructed phase converter is that the units are badly balanced with all electrical capacity burdened on one phase of the internal winding. This generates overheating and can lead to a break down of the converter. With our balance being within 5% you will receive nothing but outstanding performance. We also guarantee our converters to run cool and quiet, so you won't have to worry about excessive noise.

How is the accurate Phoenix Phase Converter determined?

Talk to our experienced technician for all sizing requirements at 866-205-7577.

How long will my Phoenix Phase Converter last?

Longer than the equipment it operates on a general basis. Because of the low amperage it continuously runs you can expect a lifetime of problem free service from our converters.

Do Phoenix Phase Converters cost a lot to operate?

Actually, many utility companies recommend phase converters for the energy saving capability, meaning low costs to you. If you are presently operating on three phase power, switching to a phase converter could reduce your utility costs because you can take advantage of the single phase rate structure and not have to pay an in demand charge (as most companies charge with use of a three phase power).

Do I have to worry about my Phoenix Phase Converter overheating while idling?

No! The care we take in balancing our currents on each winding means you will not have to start and stop your converter to prevent overheating, creating added power expenditure and nuisance, as you would with an unbalanced unit.

Will the Phoenix Phase Converter require an extreme amount of power to start?

No. Our power saving start feature reduces the amount of inrush amperage resulting in a minimum of energy output.

Is it difficult to install my Phoenix Phase Converter?

No. In fact our easy to install because the terminal blocks are easily accessible. Of course if you have any questions at all we have a 24/7 tech support ready to help you. Just call 866-205-7577.
