ADD-A-PHASE Power Converters

Description

Type S is our standard ADD-A-PHASE static three-phase converter for most pump, air compressor, and fan and blower applications. (Single motor applications only.) The Type S is a cost-effective unit that operates constant horsepower loads more efficiently (approx. 97%) than other phase converters on the market. This high efficiency provides a much lower operating cost over the life of the converter.
