Rotary phase converters

Post by JonR » Wed Apr 25, 2018 4:42 pm

Throwing this out to see if there is any interest before sticking them on Ebay.

I have come across a used digital Phase converter so the Transwave i have if all goes well when digital one is wired up will be going spare, its about 18 months old and used very little as workshop stuff is occasional for us.

Its this one

Also running my Multico tennoner is a 2.2kw Truephase rotary originally from a college(near new) and again used very little in my shop, i am hoping the digiphase will also run the tennoner just fine.

Once the digi is wired up and tested the rotary's are free to go but prices not decided on yet, i would want cash on collection and i will be leaving them wired for buyer testing.

PM or post here if interested.

Dartford area.

Jon, you got your new digital phase converter wired up ? How you fininding it....better than the rotary one ?

I need to buy a 3 phase converter. Digital one is about £2500 for one as big as I need it, rotary phase converter is about £1600 new, but come up second hand quite often.

The digital convertor runs the motor on the panel saw just like a proper 3 phase supply, it sounds super smooth compared to the rotary, the digital can just stay on idle and use hardly any electric and has all sorts of parameters set on it ie DC braking times. The rotary is noisy and uses juice when the machine isn't running.
I paid 1k for the 2nd hand digital which I could justify i could not justify 2.5k for my ammount of workshop time.

Feel free to call for anymore info.

Thanks Jon I might give you a ring if that’s alright !

I don’t fancy paying 2.5K for the amount I will be using it but I need 3 phase for some other things too so might have to .
