The Drives & Motion Division of Yaskawa America, Inc. is pleased to expand the Single Phase Converter (SPC) product line up to 125 HP at 460V and 60 HP at 230V. 

The SPC converts single-phase power to DC power for use by Yaskawa variable frequency drives.  The SPC is the solution to the biggest problems facing business owners that power medium sized motors in rural areas.  They can be faced with high costs to run three-phase power, limited single-phase motor options, and a wide range of quality issues.

Enabling rural applications such as agriculture, lumber mills, oil & gas, and pumping to utilize three-phase variable speed control offers a host of new possibilities to their businesses. 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.

The Single Phase Converter’s active power regulator insures minimal stress on the power grid, boasting less than 10% current distortion and 0.99 power factor at rated load.  Combining a low harmonic solution with a soft starting variable frequency drive typically allows the opportunity to downsize transformers and decrease installation costs.  The SPC utilizes the same components found in a variable frequency drive, which significantly reduces maintenance time and expenses. 

Jason Wellnitz, product manager for Yaskawa’s Single Phase Converter and pump drives, stated, “We are proud to continue with Yaskawa’s history of introducing innovative products to motor control applications.  We listened to our customers and hope we delivered on their needs.” The SPC is available in 230 VAC models from 20 to 60 HP and 460 VAC models from 30 to 125 HP.

The savings keep coming when you use a variable frequency drive (VFD) with synchronous bypass and transfer capabilities. It can help reduce up-front capital costs and long-term energy and maintenance costs in various motor-control applications. And along with the cost savings, the VFD can help you increase efficiency and achieve more flexible process control.

A VFD with synchronous capabilities allows you to operate one motor continuously with variable speed control or to start and synchronize multiple motors. It also gives you the ability to soft start large motors.

Motor Feature


As a leading manufacturer of drive technology, we also supply mechanical variable-speed gearmotors. For both series, VARIBLOC®and VARIMOT®, you can easily infinitely adjust the speed mechanically using a handwheel or remote control.

Speeds of up to 45 kW can be easily adjusted mechanically

Mechanical variable-speed gearmotors are simple yet robust drive components that represent an inexpensive alternative in many materials handling and process engineering applications. This is because you control the speed infinitely variably yourself: mechanically using a handwheel or via remote control. The process does not involve any costly control cabinets or frequency inverters at all.
