I've got a customer with a rotary phase converter used to power a lathe and a band saw. He is currently using the disconnect switch to turn it on and off. This is a breaker which finally gave up on him last week. I replace the breaker as a temporary fix. What is a good method of switching the phase converter on and off multiple times a day?
