How do buck boost transformers work?
Buck-boost transformers are low voltage transformers that are used to raise or lower (buck or boost) the supply voltage in small increments, so they are most commonly used for applications with a secondary voltage anywhere between 12 and 48 volts. Common types of these transformers include: 3 phase buck boost transformers, 208V to 230V buck boost transformers, and 208V to 240V buck boost transformers.
This type of transformers also have the option (and advantage) of being hooked up as an autotransformer and being able to handle even larger loads, so if you’re looking for versatility, efficiency, longevity, reliability and protection all in a single package, a buck boost transformer is a great option for most of your low-voltage electrical needs.
From heating and air conditioning, to lighting and everything in between.
Common uses for this dry type transformer include heating systems, motors, low voltage lighting, air conditioning as well as a wide range of industrial and commercial applications. Buck boost transformers are also extremely helpful in electrical systems that are operating over their intended capacity. If your system experiences or has experienced “brownouts”, or a reduction in overall power due to a high demand of power, a buck boost transformer would be something to consider.
Choose Bay Power and boost your electrical system.
Getting the right buck boost transformer shouldn’t be a chore, and with Bay Power it won’t be. Take your pick from our industry-leading selection of buck boost transformers. 3 phase buck boost transformers, 208V to 240V buck boost transformers, 208V to 240V buck boost transformers - you can count on Bay Power to have it all.
As the name suggests, 3 phase buck boost transformers are for commercial and industrial uses that need to raise or lower three separate alternating voltages. While in theory you can connect 3 single phase transformers to perform the same job, 3 phase buck boost transformers are smaller, cheaper, and lighter across the board. They contain three pairs of single phase windings, making it more efficient and more balanced.
