Designed and Manufactured in Wisconsin The focus of American Rotary, is always on innovative engineering, product development, and outstanding customer service. The results are great American made phase converters that work flawlessly, provide unparallleld performance and are easy to install, all at an affordable price.
Keeping Jobs at Home Keeping jobs at home not only helps our economy, but it is critical for quality control and for the customer serivce American Rotary provides for all our customers.
Passion for Peformance American Rotary's breakthrough design of the MicroSmart controller (AD, ADX) allowed it to create the first true digitally controlled phase converter in the industry. Its digital accuracy provides an impressive ability to adapt to changing loads, sagging voltages and gives our phase converters the feel and performance you expect from high precision machines.
GENTEC Baldor Partnership The single largest component in a phase converter is the GENTEC/Baldor VIT Generator. American Rotarys engineering departments spent over 2 years engineering the perfect generator for a Rotary Phase Converter, and its patent technology is the best in the industry. American Rotarys custom generator is one of a kind in our industry and outperforms the standard motor/idlers found on a typical phase converter.
|Gentec VIT Generator|
Designed for Phase Converters American Rotarys VIT generator features Variable Impendence Technology. VIT provides a Soft Start using only 1/3 of the starting current to get the idler generator started unlike the traditional off-the-shelf 3 phase motors found in typical motors with shafts removed found in typical phase converters. The VIT provides precise power, runs cooler for longer life and can run continuously from a no load condition through full load.
Stable Voltage and Sinewaves The VIT induction generator, by design, balances the power factor and phase angle which ultimately leads to true, undistorted sinewaves and more stable voltage. Typical phase converters that use modified motors have distorted sinewaves resulting in harmonics causing high operating temperature on the load motor, putting undue stress on your equipment.
Open Design (ODP) vs. Enclosed Design (TEFC) Major manufacturers like American Rotary, GENTEC, Phase-A-Matic, Ronk, and Kay use Open Drip Proof (ODP) style designs. Open designs run cooler, quieter, use less power and can maintain voltage better than TEFC Designs. Only trust Open Drip Proof designed phase converters to run your valuable equipment.
Voltage Stabilization A screen shot of an oscilloscope shows the difference in voltage drop using a modified 3-phase motor (GREEN) vs. using a GENTEC VIT Generator (RED). This is especially important when running voltage sensitive equipment such as CNC machines, welders and other rectified or computer loads. Stable voltage keeps your equipment protected and running perfectly.
|Full Current Starter|
Built-in Magnetic Starter American Rotary's magnetic starter provides the means to continuously control your American Rotary phase converter remotely, from multiple locations or in conjunction with automatic equipment. See the Expandable Design â Remote Start Feature for more information on remote start options.
Quality Control The American Rotary manufacturing team assembles its starter modules using torque drivers that are tested and certified as a requirement for UL certification at our Wisconsin manufacturing plant. Every control panel American Rotary builds passes over 50 criteria for quality certification before it ships your new phase converter to you!
Designed for the Hardest Start Ups American Rotary starters are custom designed to meet even the most difficult loads and the most stringent standards. We oversize the starters to ensure they can handle the entire starting current and continuous load. All American Rotary phase converters undergo rigorous simulation and testing in its R&D department to ensure your equipment and operators are safe and protected.
Be Safe and Aware! A starter is not designed or rated to be the safety disconnect. Be aware of phase converters that claim their starter disconnects all three lines of output. A properly used starter only controls the start/stop of the phase converter and does not disconnect the single phase lines. American Rotary will always put your safety first.
Double or Triple your power! All American Rotary Phase Converters are capable of phase synchronization for increased capacity. Converters can be daisy chained together to double, triple, quadruple your power. Call or email the American Rotary technical staff for more information on available options.

We get calls from our customers wondering what the differences are among all the different phase converters on the market. Granted they all do the same basic job of
turning your single-phase power into three-phase power, but the quality of the power and the efficiency isnât always there. With American Rotaryâs industry leading designs and technology, you will
be producing the cleanest and most balanced three-phase on the market and you will be doing it very efficiently and cost effectively as well.
There are a lot of features that set an American Rotary Phase converter apart from the rest. American Rotaryâs team is constantly doing research and development to constantly make sure that our phase converters are providing our customers with the best alternative three phase solution as well as making sure it is compatible with new equipment. We also take feedback from our customers to hear on ways the converter would work better for them. Here are just some ways how American Rotary is on the leading edge of phase converter technology.
VIT Generator- American Rotary worked with Baldor directly to design and engineer a custom soft starting idler generator. This idler features Variable Impendence Technology that uses a 1/3 of the inrush current of a comparable three phase motor of its size. This is a true soft starting feature that will make the phase converter much easier to start on your single-phase utility power. The idlers are also designed to produce a true three phase sine wave providing your equipment with a true three phase signal. By having a true three phase sine wave, this prevents harmonics from being in the line that are caused by distorted sine waves. On top of all this, the VIT Generator will run quieter, cooler, and more efficiently than a phase converter that is using a modified three phase motor as the idler. The custom designed VIT generator will operate at greater than 98 percent efficiency
|MicroSmart Controller- The American Rotary Digital Series (AD, ADX, AMP, AI) all feature our patented Digital MicroSmart Controller. This device monitors and controls the voltages across the three legs of power to ensure that clean balanced power is being produce and provided to your equipment. With the having the MicroSmart Controller, the phase converter will produce a three-phase power signal that is at a 5% or greater voltage balance across the three legs compared to standard utility that is typically around 10% balance. This is an ideal feature to have on your equipment, the cleaner the power is that your equipment is being provided, the more efficiently it will run. The more efficiently it runs, the less stress it is under and will last longer. This is an especially important feature to have when running voltage sensitive equipment such as CNC machines, Welders, Compressors, and other computer controls.|
|CTR Technology- Featured on the ADX and AI series phase converter the CTR Coil allows higher currents to flow through the phase converter which will produce more torque and still maintain your current and voltage balance. This is an important feature to have when starting high torque or high inertia loads that have a hard start. This can be seen on air compressors, vacuum motors, elevators, and hoists just to name a few. With CTR Technology and allowing the more current to flow, this will help shorten the start time of your equipment which in turn puts less strain on your equipment.|
|Expandable Design- With American Rotary phase converters you have the option to expand if your needs change. As time goes on and our businesses grow so does the number of machines required to run your business. With an American Rotary phase converter, we have designed the units so that you can expand your phase converter as your needs change.|
