3 Phase running on single phase

Recommended Posts

common practice these days, only tip I would have is "if" the converter fails don't panic buy a new one until you have your local rewind company look at it. these often blow capacitors which arn't a lot to replace.

it really depends on the type you have, assuming it was supplied by birch originally it is a motor with a box on top with a red push button. when you turn it on press the red button to boost it for a few seconds then it will happily run, you can turn it off if not being used for a while and restart when you need it or leave it running if you are going back and forth to the machine. when installing make sure you fit it to a supply with a C class breaker rather than the more common B class (c has a slower trip time and the b can sometimes trip wwhen boosting which is a nuisance)
