Hammond DOE 2016 Energy Efficient Distribution TransformersTransformers supply power to industrial, commercial and residential applications. They are a crucial part of our electrical infrastructure. The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) established new and more stringent energy efficiency levels for transformers that went into effect on January 1, 2016. HPS supports this new legislation and the environmental benefits it provides. To stay compliant with the DOE standards, HPS redesigned their product lines based on input from customers to ensure that their transformers would still meet the needs of demanding applications.... {Read More}

Hammond (HPS) Centurion Line Reactors

Posted on Friday Oct 02, 2015 | hammond,

The HPS Centurion® R line reactor provides improved performance and reliability as well as space needed for installation. HPS reactors are designed to address line-side issues associated with variable frequency drives. They lessen voltage and current transients that can cause nuisance tripping of a drive. Reactors also minimize harmonic current levels within the drive supply circuit. When used on the output side of Insulated Gate Bipolar Transistors (IGBT)-based, Pulse Width Module (PWM)-type AC drives, HPS reactors reduce the motor operating temperature and audible noise by moderating line transients seen by the motor.... {Read More}
