A phase converter can be a big investment. This publication is written to help you make some intelligent choices about phase converters--specifically, what type might work best for your machines, and some things to look for as you compare products. We will try to make you as well informed as possible in a short time. But, please, always keep an application engineer "in the loop" when you make your final selection. For all the information contained in this brief paper, it is impossible to list all the variables that may apply to your final selection.
