MFG. : DIMMER - TRANSFORMERS & RECTIFIER UNIT FOR ELECTROPLATING
 

Dimmer Continuosly Variable Voltage Auto-Transformer

 

DESCRIPTION

Dimmer' is registered trade mark for AE make continuously variable voltage auto-transformer. It is the most effective device for stepless, breakless & continuous control of AC voltage & therefore for various parameters, dependent on AC voltage.

DESCRIPTION

The basic Dimmer is meant for operation from a nominal input voltage of 240V 1ph AC & can give output voltage anywhere between 0 to 240V or 0 to 270V AC by simple transformer action. Three such Dimmers connected electrically in star and mechanically in tandem, become suitable for operation from a nominal input voltage of 415V 3Ph AC and can give output anywhere between 0 to 415V or 0 to 470V.

 

FEATURES

Simple, rugged construction.
Coils made from high grade CRGO Silicon Steel & 99.9% pure copper.
Output voltage variation is smooth, continuous, breakless & linearly proportional to angular rotation.
High efficiency.
Negligible waveform & power factor distortion.
Excellent short time overload capacity.
Remote operation possible by motorization.
Wide range of current ratings.
High quality carbon brush used for current collection.

Notes

1

As output voltage is continuously variable, Dimmers are rated in terms of current that can be drawn from the output.

2

Oil should be "Transformer Oil" conforming to IS 335, IEC 296.

 

MECHANICAL CONSTRUCTION

Single phase Dimmers are available in 3 types.
Portable type (P) with sheet steel enclosure for floor / table use.
Flush type (F) with open type construction. Suitable for panel mounting.
Tank type (T) immersed in oil in sheet steel tank with rollers.

Three phase Dimmer is usually ganged assembly of 3 coils, available in all 3 types: P, F, T.

Higher rating Dimmer (above 200 Amps) use 2/3 or more coils in parallel with load balancing arrangements. Motorised Dimmer uses 240V AC Step-Syn Motor having 60 rpm speed at 50Hz. With proper gearing higher torque at lower speed can be achieved.

Standard gear ratios used provide sweep time of 8, 15, 30, 45, 60,120secs.

 

APPLICATIONS

Auditorium, Hotels, Conference Halls, Exhibitions, Laboratories etc.,

AC Voltage Stabilizers, Rectifiers, Battery Chargers.

Temperature control of Ovens, Furnaces.

Testing of Instruments, Relays, Circuit Breakers etc.

Welding, Electro-plating, Anodizing etc.

Colleges & Universities.
