Transformer Features: The TX-BBT-208V-240V-46.8A-15FT.1FT-CS.50A portable buck and boost transformer is a single phase unit with a 11 kVA rating and a primary voltage of 208 V AC using a maximum of 53.1 amps on the primary side. This step-up transformer has a secondary voltage of 240 V AC and provides up to 46.8 amps available on the secondary side. Featuring robust construction, this unit`s cores are manufactured with non-aging, cold-rolled silicon steel laminations using state of the art technology.
This portable unit boasts a low cost of ownership and is highly energy efficient. Lower heat emissions mean less cooling is needed as well. The NEMA 3R painted steel enclosure makes the unit suitable for both indoor and outdoor applications, and this step-up transformer can be either floor or wall mounted. The TX-BBT-208V-240V-46.8A-15FT.1FT-CS.50A features a 180°C insulation with a 115°C temperature rise.
Construction: The aluminum winding in the TX-BBT-208V-240V-46.8A-15FT.1FT-CS.50A are formed from high quality aluminum wire help to improve performance. The close tolerances used during manufacturing also eliminates burrs which hinder performance. Each core is specially coated to prevent the ingress of moisture and are electrically balanced to minimize axial forces during short circuit situations. Buck and boost transformers are designed to maximize the performance and life of electrical equipment. The TX-BBT-208V-240V-46.8A-15FT.1FT-CS.50A is encapsulated in silica sand and resin, and cased in a NEMA 3R steel enclosure. NEMA 4, NEMA 4X, and NEMA 12 enclosures are available upon request.

Benefits: The TX-BBT-208V-240V-46.8A-15FT.1FT-CS.50A portable buck/boost step-up transformer offers many benefits to the consumer. Buck/boost transformers pass the majority of the load voltage directly through the transformer, only transforming a small percentage of the load. Due to this technology, a smaller and quieter step-up transformer is manufacturered and uses less materials. This provides owners with significant energy savings as well as offering environmental benefits.
Higher efficiency not only extends the life of the transformer, but also turn into cost savings for owners in the form of lower energy bills and decreased cost of ownership. Installation and maintenance costs are reduced due to the smaller form factor, and less overall space requiorments are decreased. In addition, these step-up transformers operate quieter than a standard autotransformer of the same capacity.
Wiring: The TX-BBT-208V-240V-46.8A-15FT.1FT-CS.50A is equipped with a 15` 8/3 SOOW whip on the input side and a 1` 8/3 SOOW whip on the output side. The input whip is terminated in a 50 amp California standard twist lock CS8265C plug and the output whip is terminated in a 50 amp California standard twist lock CS8264C connector.
Mounting: The TX-BBT-208V-240V-46.8A-15FT.1FT-CS.50A is mounted to an aluminum A-frame base stand that allows for portability. The base stand is finished in a glossy blue powder coat finish.
Installation: Installation is simple. Connect the primary leads and secondary leads to the step-up transformer per the provided wiring diagram. Knockout hubs on either side and the bottom of the transformer allow for easy line-in and line-out wiring. The front access cover provides convenient .
Applications: Air conditioners, lighting systems, heating elements, motor applications and other applications that that require the ability to power loads that differ from the available line voltage.
Limitations: While there are many benefits to a buck/boost transformer, there are some limitations to consider. This transformer will only transformer voltage, it will not convert phases, has no circuit isolation, and does not create a neutral for applications where a neutral is not already present. If any of these limitations apply to you, you will need a standard transformer. Please see below link for our standard line of industrial transformers or our line of phase converters.
