Can I use an S811+ or S611 with a phase converter?

Eaton is aware that some applications using a soft starter have a phase converter as the source of power for the soft starter/motor. It is our experience that some rotary phase converters will enable the soft starter to function normally, while others do not.

Static phase converters also may work.

Eaton has not tested any specific static or rotary phase converters with the S811+ or S611 reduced voltage soft starters and as such cannot make any recommendations as to the suitability of any combination for any given application.
