What is a rotary
A rotary phase converter is a handy device that will allow
you to run your three-phase equipment on existing 220V single-phase power.
Why buy a rotary
1. Run your three-phase equipment on single-phase outlet!
If you have any three-phase tool or equipment (such as a
woodworking lathe, pump, welder, drill press, grain dryer, etc.), it will NOT
run on your existing 220-volt electrical power. A rotary phase converter is a
device that will convert your 220V single-phase power to three-phase. (For a
sample list of some of the three-phase equipment that you can run on a rotary
phase converter, click here.)
2. Three-phase not available in your area!
Often you will find that three-phase power may not
even be available in your area, which leaves you with no alternative but to use
a rotary phase converter.
3. Get it faster and cheaper!
Your local utility company normally takes much
longer (from weeks to months) and charges much, much more to run a three-phase
line. Therefore, buying a rotary phase converter is often FASTER and CHEAPER than
dealing with the utility company.
Jim Davis got into the rotary phase converter business when
the local utility company wanted to charge $27,000 and take several
months to run a three-phase line a mere 100 yards to his shop!

What is the difference
between a static and a rotary phase converter?
A rotary phase converter runs your three-phase
equipment continuously on existing single-phase power (220V). A static
converter will start three-phase equipment and therefore can be useful
when used with the appropriate device, but it will not run three-phase
equipment continuously. Some American-made motors can be started with a static
converter, but will then run at a lower power output. (For more
information, call toll free 1-800-454-6555.)
What is a CNC converter?
A CNC converter provides balanced voltage for
computer-operated, voltage-sensitive machines.
Can I run a
foreign-built motor on a J-D-R rotary phase converter?
Yes, but because of how foreign motors are made, you will
need to order a rotary phase converter that is one size larger
than you would need for an American-built motor. For example, if you have a 2
HP Chinese or Taiwanese motor, you should order our 3 HP rotary phase
converter. Foreign motors require greater amperage for start-up than American
motors, so you would need a bigger converter.

kind of single-phase motor do you make?
We make capacitor start/capacitor run induction motors (480V,
10- 200 HP; or 240V, 15-50 HP), which combine the very best features of other types of
single-phase motors: They have a high starting torque, high overload torque, and
higher efficiency, meaning they operate at a lower temperature than other types
of single-phase motors of the same horsepower. You’ll note we also offer
larger sizes of single-phase motors (up to 200 HP) than you’re likely to find
anywhere else. For more information, please click
equipment will a single-phase motor run?
Single-phase induction motors are just about the most common
type of motor out there, and they’ll run just about anything you can think of on your
farm or in your industry. They are especially valuable
for agricultural applications (irrigation systems, deep well pumps) and for any
application using portable equipment, such as cement mixers and portable
conveyors. For a more complete list, please click

converter, or a static phase converter?
