    American Rotary ADX-20 Rotary Phase Converter

    I'm moving to a new shop that has actual 3 phase power, so this won't be needed anymore.

    American Rotary ADX-20. The ADX is their "Extreme Duty Smart Series"
    Here's the text from their website:

    The ADX Smart Series Rotary Phase Converter is designed for high inertia/friction loads. The ADX rotary phase converters have current control to provide consistent torque while starting high inertia, extremely hard starting loads, yet are precise enough for CNC applications.

    Best for: High Inertia/friction loads such as pumps, fans, compressors, blowers, dust collectors and fly wheels.


    I purchased this new in August of 2018 when I ordered a new machine, but it wasn't put into service until February of 2019. It was used run a press brake, shear, and ironworker in a 1 person fabrication shop, and was only running when those machines were being used, so it typically would see 1 - 2 hours of runtime per workday.

    Also includes a panel mount 60 amp 3 phase breaker (mounted in factory cutout on bottom of control box), as well as an American Rotary remote start switch (which was never installed).

    Asking $1400.

    Currently located in Cartersville, Ga, but will be moving to Mobile, Al on 5/26, so after that date, it'll have to be picked up/shipped from there.

    I'll gladly bolt it to a pallet and ship via truck freight (I get decent freight rates). I need to keep it in service until this weekend (5/22 or 5/23) to get machines ready for transit, but it's available after that.


    Converter sells for $2224, the remote switch sells for $75, and the panel mount breakers typically cost $100 - $130 each.

    Not sure why the pictures are on their side - they're right side up on my computer. PM me an email address and I'll send right side up pictures.

    It's an issue with the forum software. If you take a pic with a phone held vertically it displays sideways. I started a thread on it a while back....other forums using the same software have the same problem. I think there's a fix (my website has a plugin to correct for this) but it may not be available for this platform. If you take pics with the phone held horizontally it will be fine.

    What's even crazier is I emailed them from my phone to my computer then uploaded them from there. I figured once they hit the computer, what they looked like is how they'd post.

    I know...I've done the same thing and was surprised. I'm using an iPhone and a MAC so that might be some of the issue. I was able to e-mail the pics to my work phone (Android) save them oriented properly, e-mail them back to my MAC and they posted correctly....really a PITA!
