. WHAT TYPE OF CONVERTER
1. WHAT TYPE OF CONVERTER SHOULD BE USED?
The most important question is whether or not the motor is heavily loaded. You must keep in mind the fact that the motor will produce approximately 2/3 of its rated horsepower when running on the static converter. If the motor is loaded beyond that point, you must use our Rotary Converter, or use method number 2 as explained in the Installation Instructions. Otherwise, you must unload the motor by reducing the motor pulley diameter by 1/3, or increase the motor horsepower size by 50% to accommodate the loss of power.
