When would you choose a Rotary Converter?

Rotary converters are a power supply, which means you can use them to power one or multiple machines. They are more cost-effective choice as compaired to the digital converter. Many people choose to purchase a rotary converter when they only have a single machine to power in their.

Built to Last

Our PhaseMaxx converters are built to last. We regularly get calls from people who bought a second-hand PhaseMaxx converter and are looking for installation manuals. We still get support calls from people who own PhaseMaxx converters that are over 20 years old.

Manufactured and Supported from Edmonton

We have been building the PhaseMaxx rotary converters for 30 years. If you need replacement parts, we likely have them on the shelf as we use these parts daily.

If you call for support, we will ask you for the serial number on your unit. This is because we have a file on every converter we build. We will have photos of your exact unit, the full internal parts list, and electrical drawings. We can walk through troubleshooting with you as if we were standing there next to you.

Easy Setup

The setup is simple. Your single phase electrical panel will send 2 wires to the rotary phase converter. The output side of the converter has 3 lines that can be run directly to a machine or to a sub-panel. A rotary converter also has a generator that sits on the ground. This generator is an electric motor that doesn't have a shaft. The third electrical phase is produced by spinning this generator. Depending on the model, 3 or 6 electrical wires will connect the generator to the panel.

Setup for a Single Machine

Setup for Multiple Machines

If your phase converter will be used to power multiple machines, then you will install a sub-panel. Each machine will connect to its own breaker in this sub-panel.
