Can a 1150 RPM motor be used for phase converter

If it is a 3 phase AC induction motor it should work fine. You're Welcome Eric

I've never used a rotary phase converter but have used VFD's to control speed on 3-ph motors. If I wanted to run a 3-ph motor at home on split-phase, would I be better off with a rotary converter or a VFD? It seems that VFD's are cheap enough but I do have a boat-load of 3-ph motors of various sizes. Maybe I'll bring a production machine home for when I get bored.

Use a VFD if you need variable speed, I use a rotary on my B-port cuz I like to be able to plug-reverse when tapping.

If your three phase machine has a lot of controls like contactors, relays etc, or SCR rectifiers, you need a phase converter.
