Transformer rated values 

Transformers are equipped with a plaque containing all the information needed for transformer selection under normal circumstances.

  • Upri = nominal primary voltage, or the supply main voltage  (V)
  • Usec = nominal secondary voltage with nominal secondary current (V)
  • Sn = transformer's nominal apparent power on the secondary side (VA) or
  • Isec = nominal secondary current (A)
  • f = transformer's nominal frequency (Hz)

In atypical situations, the following are also required

  • protection class if other than class I (I = protective grounding, II = double insulation, III = extra-low voltage)
  • casing class if other than IP00
  • ta = ambient temperature if other than 25ºC
  • intermittent usage percentage if other than 100 %
  • transformer symbol according to standard

When a transformer is ordered, its mechanical requirements as well as possible short-circuit protection and overload protection must be determined.

Electrical device casing classes or IP-classes

IP-class is a two-digit code that describes an electrical device's external casing's ability to protect;

  • the environment from hazards inside the device (voltage, moving parts)
  • the device's sensitive parts from dirt, dust or water from the environment

The IP-class is a standardised security classification for electrical devices, and it applies to all electrical devices, such as transformers, electric motors, switch cabinets and lighting.

First identifying number

Casing class touch characteristics and foreign matter characteristics (industrial safety)

0

Open, unprotected structure

1

Penetration of min. 50 mm objects prevented, unintentional access of body parts, such as hands, prevented

2

Finger protection, penetration of min. 12 mm objects prevented, reaching of max. 80 mm long and max. 12 mm in diameter parts into hazardous areas prevented

3

Penetration of min. 2.5 mm objects, such as sticks, screws and process waste, prevented

4

Penetration of min. 1 mm objects, such as string, ribbon and process waste, prevented

5

Penetration of dust detrimental to the operation of the device prevented

6

Penetration of dust prevented

Second identifying number

Protection from water

0
