Power transformer allows operators to run low voltage lighting and equipment with standard voltages
Larson Electronics’ Magnalight has introduced a compact yet rugged power transformer that allows operators to run low voltage lighting and equipment with standard voltages. The Magnalight TX-1000VA-4XAO Power Transformer can be configured to convert 120 or 240 VAC at 50/60hz to 12/24 VDC or 12/24 VAC and is ideal for operators who utilize equipment requiring low voltages. This 1000 watt heavy duty power transformer is weatherproof, NEMA 3R rated, and features twist lock receptacle and voltage adjustability which allows operators to compensate for extreme cord lengths.
The TX-1000VA-4XAO power transformer from Magnalight.com provides operators with an effective way to reduce common 120 or 240 VAC current to 12/24 VDC or 12/24 VAC depending upon configuration, in order to power lights and equipment which require low voltages. This power transformer features an adjustable voltage controller which allows operators to increase the voltage levels in order to compensate for voltage drops that occur when very long cords are used. If an operator switches from a 50 foot cord to a 150 foot cord and notices a reduction in light output from a set of lamps for example, they can increase the voltage to 18 volts in order to ensure the lamps receive a full 12 volts.
The transformer in this unit is mounted within a weatherproof enclosure that is NEMA 3R rated giving it protection against driving water, and a raised base protects the unit from standing water as well. Low voltage power output from this portable transformer is provide by 4 I-520 twist lock receptacles, and an included pair of GFCI protected 1523 receptacles provide access to standard 120/240 voltage. The TX-1000VA-4XAO power distribution system is fitted with a 6 foot SOOW cord with standard 1523 plug on the input side to allow connection to 120 VAC, and an optional high voltage plug is available for 240 VAC connections. This portable power transformer is ideal for powering low voltage lights and equipment and is popular with operators working within hazardous locations who need a low voltage power solution for powering explosion proof lighting equipment.
“The TX-1000VA-4XAO Power Transformer is ideal for powering 12/24 volt lights and equipment on 120 to 240 volt AC connections,” said Rob Bresnahan with Larson Electronics’ Magnalight.com. “This 1000 watt transformer is weatherproof and withstands direct water spray and wetness when the self-sealing and weatherproof outlet covers are closed.”
