Type 2P ROTO-CON® Rotary Phase Converters

cUL - U.S. Listed

Description

The ROTO-CON rotary converter provides smooth, reliable 3-phase power from single-phase lines. ROTO-CON is best suited for operating motors that do not operate continuously at high load levels and for non-motor loads.

These models are sized to the largest three-phase motor (based on FLA rating) or total motor horsepower to be operated at one time. Some applications may require ROTO-CON to be oversized for correct operation. For non-motor applications, supply the FLA rating of the equipment and any voltage requirements.
