Since buck and boost step up transformers direct most of the load voltage right through the transformer, only a small portion is transformed. By doing so, this unit runs very quietly compared to other transformers and offers operators great energy savings and a smaller footprint on the environment.

Larson Electronics LLC, leader in industrial lighting and equipment, has released a new single-phase explosion proof buck and boost step-up transformer. This transformer provides increased reliability, higher efficiency, protection against critical equipment failures and an isolated power source. This NEMA 4X rated unit is great for hazardous locations both indoors and outdoors, such as flammable worksites and other applications that require the ability to power loads that differ from the available line voltage.
The ETX-BBT-208V-240V-23.4A-2X0.75S from Larson Electronics is a 5.53 KVA rated, single-phase step-up explosion proof buck and boost transformer . This unit has a primary voltage of 208V AC, using a maximum of 26.6 amps on the primary side, and a secondary voltage of 240 providing up to 23.4 amps on the secondary side. Buck/boost transformers direct the majority of the load voltage directly through the transformer, which only transforms a small percentage. This means that this step-up transformer is built smaller and runs quieter, providing users with significant energy savings and environmental benefits.
The NEMA 4X-rated ETX-BBT-208V-240V-23.4A-2X0.75S is reliable, efficient, and offers critical equipment failure protection with additional protection from a power source that is isolated from the connected device. Cast aluminum housing with winding formed from high quality magnetic copper wire greatly improves this unit’s performance. A watertight gasket and specially coated cores helps prevent the ingress of moisture. This explosion proof unit also features terminal strips for connecting input/output wiring, is compatible with surface mount applications, and has a 180°C insulation with a 115°C temperature rise.
“Since buck and boost step up transformers direct most of the load voltage right through the transformer, only a small portion is transformed,” said Rob Bresnahan, CEO of Larson Electronics LLC. “By doing so, this unit runs very quietly compared to other transformers and offers operators great energy savings and a smaller footprint on the environment.”
