We serve Canadian and U.S. clients in a variety of industries with particular emphasis on the electric utility, industrial and commercial construction markets.
An electric transformer is used to reduce or increase the voltage of electricity traveling through a wire. This is accomplished by transferring electric energy from one coil or winding to another coil through electromagnetic induction. Electric power plants use generator transformers to "step-up," or increase, voltage that is transferred through power lines in order to transmit the electricity more efficiently and over long distances. When the high voltage electricity reaches a community, a "step-down" transformer reduces its voltage. A distribution transformer makes a final step-down in voltage by diminishing the force of the electricity to a level usable in homes and businesses. Some electrical devices, such as doorbells and small appliances, use additional step-down transformers to decrease voltage even further.
