What are Phase Converters?
A phase converter is a machine that uses a motor or capacitor to convert single-phase power into three-phase power. If you have a shop with machinery that requires a heavy electrical load, you probably need three-phase power to use those machines.
Most electrical services only provide single-phase power and, if they do offer three-phase, it’s time-consuming and expensive to install.
A phase converter is cheaper, easier to install, and can run your three-phase equipment by converting the single-phase power from your utility company to the three-phase power needed to run your equipment.

Types of Phase Converters
There are two main types of phase converters: static phase converters and rotary phase converters.
Static phase converters use capacitors to help start machinery under a three-phase load. Once the machine is running, the static phase converter then disconnects, allowing the device to run on single-phase power. The drawback to using a static converter is that the equipment can only run at about 2/3rds of its rated capacity after starting up.
Rotary phase converters use a generator motor to convert single-phase power to three-phase, which your equipment needs to start up and run. A rotary converter supplies continuous three-phase power to the machines connected to it for safe, reliable, and balanced operation.
Applications of Phase Converters
You can find three-phase converters in many settings. Some typical applications and equipment include:
- Machining: CNC mills, CNC lathes, Manual Mills, Manual Lathes
- Metalworking: Welders, plasma cutters, grinders, presses, electrical discharge machines (EDMs), shears, brakes, and benders.
- Woodworking: saws, dust collectors, routers, edge banders, shapers, drills, molders, wide-belt sanders, blowers, air compressors, planers, and edgers.
- Agriculture: augers, grain dryers, heaters, submersible pumps, conveyor belts, hullers, chain hoists, irrigation pumps, balers, tower pivots, grain mixers, grinders, booster pumps, grain drying fans, and blowers
- Food Service: Ovens, rotisseries, and ice cream machines
This is just a selection of the industries and equipment which require three-phase power and benefit from phase converters.

So far so good. I had a unit that had been pieced together, was a pain to start, and noisy when it was running. I replaced it with the 5HP unit and could not be happier. I mounted the control box, wired it all in, and turned it on. I actually had to turn a fan off to hear the unit running because it was so quiet. I have only used it for about 45 minutes total run time but the ease of starting and quietness of operation are very much appreciated.

For what it’s worth, I am pleased with the transaction. Prompt shipment, a follow up phone call, good packaging, and decent instructions. And when we pushed the start button……everything worked. Nice to see another company that has its act together.

Just a note to say thanks. My ADX 5HP Rotary is up and running without a hitch. It is quite, fast and was easy to install. It makes my old Bridgeport and Hurco knee mills run perfectly. It was worth every penny I spent and I was sold all the necessary parts I needed to make this install a home run.

Thanks for making such a great product. It was very user friendly to install and works perfect.
