New High Voltage Turbine Ignition Transformers From Foster Transformer
Monday, May 14, 2012
Cincinnati, OH – Foster Transformer introduces new high voltage ignition transformers for use with stationary gas turbines. Designed to operate in ambient temperatures of up to 275°F, these proven models are suitable for new construction or retrofit applications for turbines manufactured by General Electric, Pratt & Whitney, Allison, Westinghouse, and more. Upgraded materials and construction withstand extreme thermal cycling, mechanical vibration, dirt and grime common in these applications.
Standard input voltage 115/230 V, 50 – 400 Hz, custom input voltages and frequencies available. Output voltage is 15,000 V, with power rating 0.450 kVA, and 8-32 screw terminal line voltage connection. Industry standard SAE ARP670 Type 1F output connector. Current limited high reactance design, and 25 mA short circuit current.
Each ignition transformer is encapsulated in MIL-PRF-23586F UL940V Silicone Elastomer for maximum protection against shock and vibration, thermal cycling stress, dielectric failure and corrosion. Class 180 (H) insulation is standard and allows extended life when used in high ambient temperature applications. Stainless steel enclosure and high voltage connector withstand harsh environments.
Foster Transformer has been making electronic transformers, power supplies, and electromagnetic components for 75 years. Their corporate headquarters, Engineering Lab and primary manufacturing facility are located in Cincinnati, OH. The ability to manufacture their own tooling, fixtures and unique production machinery, allows Foster to provide quick turnaround, start-up and support low-to mid volume from the Cincinnati plant. Foster has additional manufacturing capacity available in China to support long run, high volume applications.
