    I hope someone can help me with the problem that I have.
    I just purchased a used PhaseMaxx Rotary Phase Converter Model 20D Serial # 020021571
    I hooked up the converter to my 100 amp.shop panel before realizing that my 15 hp. Dust Collector was 600 v
    Can I use a transformer to step the voltage up to the 600 v required to run my dust collector?
    Or do you have a solution to help me make this work?
    Will the 100a panel handle the load?

    15 Hp 3 phase 600 volt motor on your dust collector ?

    That is a big unit ! Basically it will draw 15 amps !

    More info required .

    That's the tag for the phase converter. Can you post a picture of the name tag for the dust collector motor? It looks like the phase converter will be happy running on 230 volts single phase and will output 230VAC 3 phase. It is possible that the motor for the dust collector has a dual voltage 3 phase motor and would just need to be wired for the lower voltage.

    Phase Converter calls for 191 Full Load Amps and you only have a 100A service panel? No bueno!
