Frequency Converters

What are static Frequency Converters?

Quite simply, a static frequency converter (SFC) is a device that converts a fixed voltage / fixed frequency to match the desired voltage and frequency you require, An SFC as opposed to older technology such as (rotary / motor frequency converters) has no moving parts and is therefore more efficient.

Standard applications for SFC’s are commonly within the aviation industry, converting mains power (50/60Hz) to aircraft power 115V 400Hz, military and oil industry applications that require 400Hz,  and within industry a common application would be from 50Hz to 60Hz or 60Hz to 50Hz. Regardless of  your specific requirement, GB Electronics will have a solution for your application.

GB Electronics can offer a wide range of Static Frequency Converters ranging  from a basic single phase fixed output 1Kva 115v 400Hz LF Range machine  to the Three Phase ME range which starts at 10kVA and increases to 500Kva with the input and output specified by you according to your bespoke requirements.

LF1-400

115/200V 400Hz Single Phase output, at up to 1kVA

A transformer ensures full isolation between the output voltage and the incoming supply and the output neutral may be earthed externally if required. The unit is fully protected against overcurrent and overtemperature conditions. Input power and output cable supplied.

This unit is normally supplied as a free standing bench top unit; but the LF1 can also be built in a rack mount configuration if required at no extra cost. A support shelf or bracket would be required when the rack mounting option is specified: these are not supplied with the unit, as their dimensions will depend on the arrangement of the cabinet or rack.

LF1-400 3kW

115V 400Hz Single Phase output, at up to 3kVA

The LF1-400-3kW frequency converter offers low price fixed voltage single phased full isolation between the output voltage and the incoming supply, and the output neutral may be earthed externally if required. The unit is fully protected against overcurrent and temperature conditions, LF1-400-3kW are supplied with input and output cables.

This LF1-400-3kW is normally supplied as a free standing bench top unit; but can also be built in a rack mount configuration if required at no extra cost.

A support shelf or bracket would be required when the rack mounting option is specified: these are not supplied with the unit, as their dimensions will depend on the arrangement of the cabinet or rack.

LF3-400

115/200V 400Hz Three Phase output, at up to 3kVA

A transformer ensures full isolation between the output voltage and the incoming supply and the output neutral (star point) may be earthed externally if required. The unit is fully protected against overcurrent and overtemperature conditions. Input power and output cable supplied.

This unit is normally supplied as a free standing bench top unit; but the LF3-400 can also be built in a rack mount configuration if required at no extra cost. A support shelf or bracket would be required when the rack mounting option is specified: these are not supplied with the unit, as their dimensions will depend on the arrangement of the cabinet or rack.

ME Range

50-60Hz, 60-50Hz and 50/60Hz - 400Hz Static Frequency Converters

GB Electronic are pleased to announce the launch of the ME Range of Static Frequency Converters, the ME range come as single or three phase. Single Phase models are available from 10kVa to 30kVa and the Three Phase models are available from 10kVa to 450kVa. 

Our Static frequency converters have been designed to be environmentally friendly, reliable and easy to use, versatile in their construction with most voltages and frequencies catered for, for a specific quotation please call the number listed below or enter your details into our enquiry form. 

The ME range of Static Frequency Converters convert the source power with a specific input voltage and frequency in to a different output voltage and frequency depending on what the client requires, The units are designed with Power Factor correction to guarantee a perfect sinusoidal input current from 25% to 150% load and low THDi (<1.5%).
