PHASE CONVERTER PHASE-A-MATIC model PAM-300-HD phase converter. Use to power three-phase electric motors from a 220 VAC single-phase source. The motor being powered will produce roughly 2/3 of it''s rated power due to the conversion characteristics of the converter. Heavy duty converter suitable for long starts, frequent starts and reversing.
Can this phase converter be used to power a three phase battery charger for electric forklift?
A: No. These create a false third phase for starting a three-phase electric motor only until the motor gets to speed, then the starting false phase turns off and the motor operates on two legs, resulting in two-thirds of the rated performance. It will not work for operating any electrical devices that require true three-phase input.
