Three Phase Converters

- For General Purpose Applications

General purpose three phase converters are for use with any type of three phase equipment that is not classified as CNC or voltage sensitive. This includes standard motor loads, resistive (heating), and inductive loads (such as UPS's). Some examples of equipment that can use general purpose three phase converters are:

  • Air Compressors
  • Lathes
  • Pumps
  • Blowers / Fans
  • Welders
Three phase converters
To determine whether your equipment should be used with a General Purpose Three Phase Converter, please refer to our load type chart. If your equipment is non-CNC, and classified on the load chart as Easy, Medium, Hard, Inductive, or Resistive, a General Purpose Three Phase Converter is right for you.

What is a Three Phase Converter?

A Three Phase Converter is a device that produces three phase electrical power from a single phase power source. It is generally used when bringing in three phase power from the utility is cost prohibitive, or in some cases, not even an option. A TEMCo Three Phase Converter can be used with any three phase application. It can run multiple loads, resistive and inductive loads, cnc loads, and motor and resistive combination loads, so long as the three phase converter used is of high enough capacity output. You can always use a TEMCo Rotary Phase Converter that supplies more power than you need now, but one that does not supply enough kW power output will not work.

Application Sizing & Pricing

Motor Loads

  1. What is the HP of the largest 3-phase motor you will need to start?
  2. Is it Easy, Medium or Hard to start? (Click here to determine start load)
  3. Find the appropriate column and motor HP. (Easy, Medium or Hard)
  4. Consider your Max Load. (Total HP of motors that will be run, but not started at the same time.)
  5. Chose the Three Phase Converter size that accommodates the power you need by following the horizontal line to the left.

Resistive/Inductive Loads

Some examples of common resistive loads are heaters, EDM machines, kilns, and ovens. Examples of inductive type loads are power supplies, welders, and battery chargers.

To size a three phase converter for your resistive/inductive equipment, add your total load amps, and use the R/I* column to select the appropriate model.

Industry Leading Quality & Warranty

All TEMCo Three Phase Converters utilize 100% copper windings. The benefit of copper windings is the superior resistance to corrosion, as well as an enhanced conductivity rating, which equates to a higher efficiency! In addition to 100% copper windings, all internal wiring is done using high grade copper wire. TEMCO is the ONLY manufacturer to offer a 10 year warranty standard with most model three phase converters. We are able to offer this due to the fact that we use only high quality components in our products. This results in a product that has a practically indefinite lifespan. When you buy a TEMCo Three Phase Converter, know that you are being backed by the industry leader in three phase converter technology. In addition to our long warranty, we provide free lifetime product application support for all of our units.

Quiet Operation

Resilient vibration isolator, rubber foot mountAll of our CNC Phase Converters have been designed with noise reduction in mind. All TEMCo converters, regardless of series or model, operate at 63dB @ 10ft. To put that into perspective, it's about as loud as normal conversation. It is recommended that our CNC Phase Converters not be directly bolted to the floor. The proper way to mount CNC Phase Converters is with the use of a rubber vibration isolator. Not only will this reduce the noise generated from vibration, it will also prolong the life of the phase converter.

Three Phase Converter Installation

Installation is a breeze with a TEMCo Three Phase Converter. Save time and money with a quick installation. All TEMCo Three Phase Converters use heavy duty terminal blocks for the input and output connections. No more struggling to make connections in that tiny motor junction box! Just bring your two wires + ground from your supply panel into the input terminal block, and run your three wires + ground from the output terminal block to your three phase panel or fused disconnect. Once the conduit and wires have been run, actual installation of the three phase converter takes just a matter of minutes.
