Yaskawa reveals new single phase converters

Yaksawa America expanded its single-phase converter (SPC) line.  SPCs converts single-phase power to DC power for use by variable frequency drives.  The new converters enable rural applications such as agriculture, lumber mills, oil & gas, and pumping to utilize three-phase variable speed control. Three-phase motors are typically more efficient than their single-phase counterparts and more readily available. Adding variable speed control of three-phase motors offers a host of advantages:  improved process control and quality, minimized energy consumption, and reduced maintenance.
