PHASE CONVERTER Brand new PHASE-A-MATIC model PAM-900-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 the rated power due to the conversion characteristics of the converter. Heavy duty converter suitable for long starts, frequent starts and reversing.
will this converter instantly reverse a 3 phase motor for tapping holes?
A: This converter will tolerate starting a motor that is reversing. It only creates a false third phase until the motor gets to operating speed at which point it drops the false phase out and the motor is operating on only two phases. Typically when these are used the reversing is done with separate switching after the converter. It would be best to contact the manufacturer's Technical Support staff and confirm compatibility with your intended application.

Can this converter power a 3- phase 460 volt gear head drill press. I have single phase 220 volt for the input, would I be able to use a step up transformer to get the 460 volts 3 phase. The gear head only draws 3.5 amps running.
A: No, to our knowledge there is no way to make this work in that fashion.

Will this work for a motor Dayton Model 9N086 230/460 volts 13.8/6.9 Amp 3510 Rpm 40 DEG.C MAX.AMB.
A: Yes, and for that size 11-1878 would be adequate as well.

I am trying to power a 208 three phase forklift battery charger, but I only have single phase service. I was wonder ing if this converter will work for me. The charger is a Hobart battery mate 208/240/480 in 36vdc out.
A: Unfortunately no. The phase converters are just for use with electric motors. Not with any other sort of 3 phase equipment.
