More than 20,000 VACUTAP® VR units are currently demonstrating their value for our customers around the world. Our engineers incorporated this one-of-a-kind operating experience into the development of the new VACUTAP® VR. The result is sure to impress: Optimization of the design allowed us to increase the permitted values for step voltage and switching capacity once again.
The option of combining the VR with the brand new R-selector design provides additional advantages. The new R-selector displays these advantages through the significantly increased tap-changing capacity of the change-over selector and higher permissible operating and testing voltages. This means that higher power requirements are ideal for taking full advantage of the strengths of this combination. In addition, the Active Gas Inhibition System* can be used to reduce gas generation in the transformer tank caused by tap selector operations by up to 90 percent.
Reliable. Rugged. Economical.
These three traits are the essence of our VACUTAP® technology. And the VACUTAP® VR takes advantage of the enormous versatility offered by this technology. It is ideal for all operating applications:
- Electric arc furnace
- Variable shunt reactors
- Phase shifters
In terms of economy, the VACUTAP® VR makes no compromises, enabling 300,000 tap change operations withut any maintenance. The diverter switch insert can be used for 1.2 million tap changes before needing replacement.
