Low Frequency Transformers
General Transformer works with many industries for varying applications in need of a custom low frequency transformer. We provide low frequency transformer designs with frequency capacities of:
- 50/60 Hz
- 60 Hz
- 400 Hz
Your frequency needs will vary depending on your specific application and geographic location. For instance, North, Central and South America typically use 60 Hz while the rest of the world is more likely to use 50 Hz. Most 50 Hz low frequency transformers can be used in a 60 Hz application and usually have a 50/60 Hz rating. A 60 Hz rated transformer should only be used in a 60 Hz application.
The 400 Hz low frequency transformer is used in high-powered applications to minimize size. Smaller and more lightweight than a 50 Hz or 60 Hz transformer, a 400 Hz transformer is especially suited for military, aerospace and avionic applications as it allows for increased cargo space and decreased fuel consumption.
