Single Phase Supply (Power Supply)

The standard power supply in the UK (e.g. in your house, office etc) is 220v Single Phase supply. Many platform lifts will run on this supply, however, some will require a 3 Phase Power Supply (typically, these will be from Scandinavian or Central European manufacturers). Before committing to the purchase of a lift, be sure that you know which type of power supply is required and check that your electrical system can accommodate these requirements. If your building does not have a 3 phase power supply, it might be possible to pay the lift supplier to add a device called an inverter to the lift which will then allow a single phase supply to be used. If you are not sure then always ask before committing to a purchase.
