Transwave Phase Converters: In a home workshop, farm, garage or small business environment there is often a requirement for the operation of machinery driven by three phase induction motors where only a single phase electricity supply is available.
The TRANSWAVE Converter provides an artificial means by which a three-phase motor can be operated from a single-phase supply thereby offering a cost-effective solution to this dilemma. In most instances, no modification to the machine is necessary. The Rotary Converter is particularly suited to the multi-motor, multi-operator environment. Multi-motor applications can be accommodated up to the maximum loading of the converter provided that the specified maximum single motor load is not exceeded.
The Rotary Converter is better suited to multi-motor applications or where equipment has a heavy starting load or is subjected to an abnormal surge current. Vehicle Hoists, Compressors, Pumps and Extractor Fans fall into this latter category. It should be noted that converters are designed for applications with a cyclic duty. Please seek advice for continuous duty applications. A Static Converter can also be considered for single motor applications. This style of converter is typically used in a single operator environment where only one machine is used at a time.
