Kay Industries is a true expert in the application of phase converters on woodworking equipment. A single rotary 3-phase converter can supply 3-phase power from any 1-phase source to a one-machine operation or to an entire shop. The Phasemaster® rotary phase converter can be used on all types of saws, molders, shapers, planers, edge banders, wide belt sanders, routers, dust collectors, air compressors, or any other machine tools you utilize in your operation.

Most woodworking applications include a combination of machines, which often requires a phase converter to accommodate a wide range of load conditions. The Phasemaster rotary three-phase converter is ideally suited to these requirements and maintains a balanced output condition under both light and heavy load demands. As with other applications, the Kay Industries approach to phase converter sizing is very methodical, taking special care to match the proper three-phase converter to your load.

The Phasemaster rotary phase converter has been tested, approved, applied on or recommended by of some of the best known manufacturers of woodworking equipment.

Critical Selection and Application Criteria:

  • Be sure to have adequate single-phase service. You must have at least 100 amps of single-phase service for each 20 HP of connected 3-phase load at 230 volts. Verify with your utility company

  • Identify what machines will operate together. If the largest load is more than four times the HP of the smallest load, a voltage regulator should be installed in the converter.

Phasemaster converters are recommended by these fine manufacturers:  Leguna, Delta, SCMI, Adwood, Multicam, Powermatic, Martin, Timesavers, and many more.
