The old fashioned STATIC and ROTARY phase converters are the most basic type of converters, they are not much good at all with the STATIC being large and heavy as per the right hand picture above and this STATIC type will oftern have problems running modern motors and when they do run them at all they are not at all smooth and you will have a loss of power and our customers have oftern burnt out small motors using a STATIC type converter !, Keep well clear of them !,

The ROTARY PHASE CONVERTER is a big and bulky as can be seen in the left picture above its an item thats makes loads of racket in the workshop and uses loads of power even before you start your machines and even then the power output is not up to the most demanding tasks, both these types of converters are so simple you can make your own if you want to with plans on how to do this being sold all the time on EBAY but I would not bother as you are sure to be unhappy with the results once you have it up and running !,

Both the STATIC and ROTARY converter have now been dropped from the DRIVES DIRECT product range so these types are basically becoming obsolete now with all discerning users opting for the latest DIGITAL PHASE CONVERTER technology but as we try to assist our customers as much as we can there are often times when a customer who already has one of the old STATIC or ROTARY converters and is unhappy with them for what ever reason wants to upgrade to the DIGITAL system and if the unit they have is in good condition we will always do our best to offer them a PART EXCHANGE deal against a DIGITAL unit,
