Shelton, CT — The Tortran division of Bridgeport Magnetics Group Inc. now offers its complete line of custom and standard design toroidal power and isolation transformers installed at the factory in weatherproof steel enclosures.

Applications include hospitals, medical equipment, industrial control, surveillance camera installations, machine tools, test and measurement, laboratories, construction sites, onboard boats, marinas, landscape and outdoor low voltage lighting and other uses where enclosed transformers are needed.

The enclosures are available in six standard sizes, from 250 x 200mm (9.8 x 7.9-in.) to 500 x 400mm (19.7 x 15.7-in.). Depth of 150mm (5.9-in.) is provided for all sizes. The largest size is also available with a depth of 200mm (7.9-in.).

The largest size of the custom configured transformer enclosure series may hold three transformers for 60Hz three-phase operation , with a total power rating up to 7,500 VA with room for terminal blocks, other components like capacitors, rectifiers and PC boards if required.

Users may also choose to have several smaller transformers with lower power ratings. The smallest enclosure has room for a 1500VA transformer. The physical size of transformers for 60Hz only frequency can be 20 percent smaller while a 400Hz transformer is typically half that size.

The finish of the weatherproof enclosure is a textured epoxy powder-coated over Zinc chromate 14 GA or 16 GA steel. Standard color is a neutral light gray. Custom colors are available. All enclosures come with a hinged (left or right) front door with one or two tamper-proof key locks. The weatherproof access panel can be installed on top or bottom using Nylon liquid-tight cable glands. Terminal blocks are available in five sizes and rated for insulation class F (155 C). All five sizes can accommodate up to 12 terminations. Tortran's power and isolation transformers are certified to UL, CSA, EN and IEC general purpose and medical standards and carry CE mark.
