PHASE CHANGE CONVERTERS
 
Have you ever wanted to run a three phase powered machine, but you only have a single phase power supply available?

The Phase-Changer three phase converter changes a 240V or 480V single phase supply into an equivalent 415V 3-phase output, which is just like a utility 3 phase supply. It will efficiently operate any 3 phase equipment.
 
(The voltage information shown on this site relates to typical Australian voltages of 240V single phase & 415V 3-phase. These converters are also suitable for 220V/380V and 230V/400V supplies as found in many parts of the world.)
 


ANY MACHINE, ANY APPLICATION

Provided you have adequate single phase power available, there is always a Phase-Changer 3 phase converter solution that will reliably power any 3 phase machine. Workshop equipment, welders, compressors, pumps, computer controlled machines, air conditioners, in fact anything that requires 3
phase power can be operated by a Phase-Changer converter. Even big "hard to start" loads will start & run reliably with power from a Phase- Changer.

Your local electrician simply connects the input to your single phase supply via a new circuit breaker. And just like standard utility 3 phase, the output is connected to your machinery - and that's it - you're ready to go!

Compare the cost of a Phase-Changer to the cost of connecting to a utility power supply, and in most cases the Phase-Changer will cost far less. And you own it. It can be relocated or resold if your circumstances ever change.

ALL THE BENEFITS OF 3-PHASE POWER WITHOUT THE COST:

Most commercial machinery over a few kilowatts is designed to operate on 3 phase power. That's because 3 phase motors are more reliable, much less expensive, more readily available, have a much better starting capability, run more efficiently (eg. 90% compared to 70%), and last many years longer than their single phase counterparts.

Simply put, single phase motors are expensive, inefficient and unreliable when compared to a 3 phase motor. The requirement for larger machinery often means that 3 phase connection is the only option. In many cases, machine manufacturers do not offer single phase solutions. Having 3 phase power available opens up a whole new world of alternatives to the machinery shopper. A large variety of 3 phase machinery is available from both new and used machinery dealers - and it is usually cheaper and more readily available.
 

THE REAL COST ALTERNATIVE TO UTILITY 3-PHASE
 
The Phase-Changer is simply the least expensive way to operate 3 phase equipment wherever utility 3 phase is unavailable or is too expensive to obtain. It eliminates the utility charges to extend 3 phase power lines and the cost of new supply transformers and power metering. It also saves the cost of a new 3 phase switchboard and can usually be installed in less than an hour compared with weeks or even months for a utility line extension. Phase-Changers can be used on Single Wire Earth Return (SWER) power supplies. Standard model sizes range from 2.2KW to 37KW and suit any application. The only limiting factor is the size of the single phase supply available. A Phase-Changer is much less costly than a generator to own and operate and it is much quieter. Phase-Changers are 'stand alone' converters that you own and can be relocated or sold if you ever decide to move to a new property.

POWER DISPLAY NOW STANDARD
All multistage Phase-Changers are now fitted with a digital display which indicates the power level that your Phase-Changer is running at, as a numerical number from 0 through to 8.

0 will be indicated at idle, through to 7 depending on the size of the connected load.A 'Hard Start' is an 8.

Currently we manufacture for 50Hz countries only, with 60Hz systems to follow in the near future.

Converters are customised for local market requirements. This includes voltage, plug connections, wire colours, warranty and labeling. Required approvals (EMC and Safety) are valid for each individual market.  Pictures shown are indicative only, and the final assembly may vary slightly to suit your local requirements.
