Type 2D ROTOVERTER® Rotary Phase Converters

cUL - U.S. Listed

ROTOVERTER

Description

Patented ROTOVERTER tap adjustments give you control over all three phases for balancing currents. Type D ROTOVERTER models are recommended for applications where a single load (of either single or multiple motors up to 42 HP) is operated and for non-motor load applications.

These models are sized to the largest three-phase motor based on full-load amp (FLA) rating or total motor horsepower to be operated at one time. For non-motor applications, supply the FLA ratings of the equipment and any voltage requirements.
