Staco 171 Panel mount single phase fixed shaft Variable Transformer VT-1A.


Staco Energy Products' full range of variable transformers offer the exceptional versatility and reliability required for so many of today's voltage control applications in both industrial and laboratory environments.

Unlike a standard fixed ratio transformer, a Staco variable transformer is designed to provide variable output voltage that can be adjusted from 0 to 117% of the unit's input voltage.

Staco Energy Products Co. offers a wide range of standard models including the following:
  • Panel mount, single phase (fixed and adjustable shaft)
  • Enclosed cord and plug
  • Metered
  • Fully enclosed
  • Ganged
  • Isolated
  • Isolated portable cord and plug models
  • "Quick-Step" motorized
  • Motor driven
  • Cased

A basic Staco variable transformer consists of a copper winding on a toroidal core of laminated, grain-oriented, silicon steel. A carbon brush, connected to an output terminal, is rotated over the length of a precision-ground, precious metal-plated, commutator track to tap off voltage at any turn from zero volts to the maximum output voltage of the winding.

Ganged Variable Transformer Assemblies

High Current Models

By ganging variable transformers with a common rotor shaft wiring the outputs in parallel, the output current can be greatly increased.  The models listed here are capable of output currents up to 315 amps.  Other models are available in a variety of ranges. 

To download a PDF version of our brochure, click here.  For more information, contact your local sales representative or call us directly.  

 

 

Three Phase Models

All of Staco Energy Products' variable transformers can be ganged with a common rotor shaft and wired for three phase operation, in either open Delta or Wye configuration.   For more information, contact your local sales representative, or call the factory directly.

 

 

Accessories and Other Configurations of Standard Models

Cased Models

Transformers of the 1010B through 6011 series are available in either "C" style (featuring protective screening over the coil assembly only) or the "CT" style (which also includes a terminal box cover with knockouts to accept conduit.  Example part numbers are "1510C, 2510CT."

Engineering Drawings

 

 

Motor-Driven Models

For applications requiring remote or automatic voltage control, a driving motor can be added to all models of the 501C through 6011 series.  Standard motor speeds are: 5, 15, 30 and 60 seconds of travel, and so are designated  by the prefix "M."  For example: "30M1510."

Controllers

MP Microprocessor Controller

Our MP series of Microprocessor provides for easy interface of computer and process controller to Staco Energy Products' motor driven variable transformers.  It is capable of several operational modes with selectable control ranges - tunable for various motor speeds, output voltage ramping, and feed back voltage.  Custom options are available.

The microprocessor can be controlled with the microterminal, process control set point, or a bi-directional communications port such as RS-232 or RS-422.  The variable transformer regulation is maintained at +/-0.5 volts.  The MP controller is available with one, two or three channels for control of up to three motorized variable transformers or individual phase control of a three phase unit.

FRC-20 Controller

The FRC-20 controller is designed to position and regulate any Staco motor driven variable transformer.  It can be controlled with a 0-5 VDC or 4-20 Ma set point, a 1k ohm potentiometer, or a fixed resistor network.

It maintains a full range regulation of 0.5%, and a limited range regulation of 0.25%.  This unit is field configurable for feed back voltages up to 600 VAC, full range/limited range, and type of control.  Each FRC-20 includes a 1 amp motor supply fuse and a set point supply trim potentiometer.  It is a compact package, and can be easily mounted on the motor plate or inside an enclosure.  Contact your sales representative or the factory for current and other feed back alternates.
