You can transfer energy from our source to another source using a transformer. These come with a lot of safety features and measures. You can either buy a standard transformer that has similar specifications to what you are looking for or select a custom transformer.

When you select a custom transformer, you can get exactly what you want from the transformer manufacturer.Any requirement you have can be adjusted to achieve better performance for your facility. There are manufacturers that specialise in these custom transformers and you can contact them to get an idea of how to purchase one. You can use custom transformers for domestic purposes as well. These are generally known to be found in industrial applications. The reason that transformers are used is that they can bring down the risk of short circuits. But you can’t just relax thinking that everything is taken care of when you select a custom transformer. There are still maintenance procedures and safety precautions to be taken.

There are a few things that you need to confirm before the custom transformer is finalised. You need to decide on important factors such as mounting method, how much space you have on site for mounting, number of phases, input and output voltage, frequency and current. Check with the manufacturer if there is an electrostatic shield that can bring down the impact of voltage spikes along with fine noise. You can discuss with the manufacturer about how the transformer is being designed and whether there are any precautions taken to prevent overheating. There is a lot of care and thought that goes into the manufacturing of a custom transformer but as with anything, you can expect some deterioration of function with time. So you need to keep on monitoring the transformer so that you can detect any small problems and attend to it right away.

Maintenance and inspection have to start from the beginning when you install a transformer. And you need to keep this up for the entirety of its life span. The initial resting and inspections are the most important. However, this doesn’t mean you can do away with testing at the later stages. You can meet with several manufacturers to get an idea of their design process. You need to make sure that they are given all pertinent information. And make sure you ask for the timeline and the costs. You will also need to specify order volume and load requirements. Consider any special requirement that you need for your purpose. If you are not sure about which specifications are right for the purpose, you can always contact the engineers of the manufacturer to get an idea of how to configure the custom transformer. Check if the manufacturer has the right certifications to provide a quality product. You can also ask them about the custom transformers that have designed and built previously. Ask them about the range of power ratings they work with along with transformer types and sizes.
