New Pump Converter
July 1, 2009
Phase Technologies’ new AquaPhase pump converter provides soft-start operation of three-phase pumps and other motors when only single-phase service is available. This converter boosts 240V single-phase input to 480V three-phase, variable-frequency output without using a transformer. The voltage-boosting input module is equipped with electronic power factor correction, which eliminates harmonic distortion, and variable-frequency output soft-starts the motor to eliminate line disturbance and reduce water hammer. AquaPhase offers programmable motor and pump protection features including over/under voltage, over/under current, dry well and more.
