A Multi Tap Transformer is a step up or down transformer that has multiple taps on either the primary winding or the secondary winding. A Multi Tap Transformer provides flexibility in your input and output voltage requirements.
Multi Tap Transformers are used in heating element applications. The resistance of the heating elements increases with age which results in reduced current thru the heating element. To restore the heating element current back to its original value, the voltage applied to the heating element must be increased. Multi tap transformer connections provide the additional taps to compensate for the change.
Multi tap transformers are also used in compensating for the variation of input power voltages to a customer facility. Input power to the equipment changes due to the load conditions as well as the proximity of the utility power to the customer facility and many other causes. This results in a mismatched input voltage to a customer facility. The multi tap transformer wiring configurations would be able to provide necessary taps to compensate for the variation of input voltages.
L/C Magnetics can provide Multi Tap Transformers as an open core and coil unit or enclosed in a corrosion resistant power coated enclosure. We can also install the transformer in a NEMA 4 enclosure or a stainless steel enclosure.
L/C Magnetics builds custom designed multi tap transformers. The transformers can be used for single phase or three phase applications.
