Your low cost solution to producing three phase power...from a single phase line Phase-O-Matic™

The Phase-O-Matic rotary converter is a low cost method of producing three-phase power from a single phase line. The converter, resembling an electric motor, is designed to operate as a three-phase distribution system. for farms, factories, or any other small business where three-phase power is needed and only single phase line is available. The PHASE-O-MATIC is capable of operating an indefinite number of motors at full power from a single converter, which differs from static converters, that are restricted to operating a single motor at 60% power.

The PHASE-O-MATIC can operate a single moter, or numerous motors, individually, concurrently, intermittently, or continuously as though connected to a three-phase line. PHASE-O-MATIC permits a combination of motors to vary in horsepower, motor speed duty cycle, instant reverse, and be started and stopped frequently with effect on the converter.

The maximum size of a given motor is limited to the horsepower rating of the converter. The TOTAL HORSEPOWER LOAD should not exceed 2-times the converter rating. Ther are exceptions, where high speed (3450 RPM) motors, or squirrel cage fans are used. For our suggestions on the proceeding, please advise us on the horsepower, RPM, amperage, and what the motor will operate. Converters of 230 volts or 460 volts, 60 cycles in ratings from 3 to 100 horsepower are available.

PHASE-O-MATIC converts (Power Factor .96+) raise the power factor of the motor system, thereby lowering the effect of starting. Amperage is reduced with the efficiency rotor, bringing three-phase motors up to speed with only a slight voltage drop. The starting KVA of a three-phase motor connected to a PHASE-O-MATIC is about 30% less than the same motor operating on solid three-phase. It has been observed tht up to 50 HP motors on a medium loaded single phase, 7200 volt line, created virtually no flicker or disturbance. To summarize, PHASE-O-MATIC enables you to operate as many three-phase motors as desired with the highest performance and efficiency expected from a direct three-phase line with less expense, a minimum of maintenance, and no adjustment or regulation.
