Bridgeport, Conn. Bridgeport Magnetics has introduced a new general-purpose transformer line that gives designers a choice of secondary windings and power ratings without the typical price of a custom design.
Based on the company's standard cores with primary windings and insulation, the CUSTARD (CUSTom/standARD) transformer is available with a full range of power ratings from 20 VA to 1000 VA, and standard primary windings for 117 V/230 V, 50-60 Hz operation as well as any secondary winding specified by the customer.
The CUSTARD transformers are certified to UL, CSA, EN and IEC standards with CE marking. Applications include motor drives in robotics; power supplies in analytical, test and measurement instrumentation, and as step-down transformers in industrial controls, UPS systems, and low voltage lighting. These devices are also suitable for applications that call for a low profile, low noise, cool operating temperature or low weight.
The company notes that the CUSTARD devices are general-purpose transformers and a full custom design may be preferable for high-end audio and medical applications. For medical applications, for example, the company has the capability to design a full custom transformer in compliance with UL2601, CSA601.1 and IEC601.1. Medical isolation transformers are available as standard designs from 150 VA to 2000 VA with or without enclosures.
Typical pricing for a 500 VA transformer with two secondary windings is $52.50 in quantities of 100. Delivery is typically within 72 hours.
