Triple Rated TZ Soft-start rotary phase converters
Concerned about Utility Line Disturbance for your neighbors when you
start your new rotary phase converter?
Because a rotary converter is often considerably larger than the electric motor(s) it provides power for, (and even more so for computer numerically controlled applications), the machine's starting current (LRA) should be a factor in product selection for your particular installation site.
Utility suppliers have severe restrictions
when it comes to inrush (LRA) on their power grid. They want to ensure one client's power
requirements does not adversely affect the surrounding utility users. Before you purchase
any conversion product, it may be prudent to consult your Utility supplier to find out
what their limitations are.
But the bottom line is .... your Utility
supplier won't like any disturbance period.
Well, the best solution may be to order a PhaseMAXX omplete with Soft-start starter. You may be surprised at the low price of the soft-start starter feature. Typically, the addition of the soft-start starter (TZ) carries a price tag that is only 12% higher than the standard full-voltage magnetic starter inlcuded in (T, TCNC) series convertors.

(soft-start) Series Triple
HP Ratio Largest / Total - (1:3)
TZ Serie Soft-start converters are an easy solution to less Utility disturbance especially when the converter required would normally have higher Locked Rotor Amperage (LRA) than that of the largest motor operated from the converter. Many specific applications require a rotary converter that is larger in order to maintain adequate starting torque for the load. Doing so, results in a converter that will have higher LRA than that of the load motor - a factor that offten affects the size of Utility service required. The easy solution of course, is the TZ Soft-start series.
Concerned about disturbing your Utility supplier (or surrounding residences) when you operate your converter? Rest a little easier with the lower starting current of the TZ series.
The TZ series converters are produced with quality Carlo Gavazzi motor controls, along with the durability and quiet operational characteristics of cast iron rotary generators.
When price-comparing converters between different manufacturers,
especially compare the HP and Frame size of the converter. See the drop-down menu's [Rotary Converter General Info] section at the top of this page.
