A record at RM

10,000th VACUTAP® RMV-II shipped


MR's American subsidiary, Reinhausen Manufacturing, Inc. (RM) has been manufacturing reactive-type on-load tap changers with vacuum interrupters in its Humboldt, TN facility for over 25 years. A record was broken in September: RM supplied the 10,000th VACUTAP® RMV-II OLTC.

In total, RM has now manufactured and supplied to customers more than 13,000 MR on-load tap-changers at the Humboldt facility.

Maschinenfabrik Reinhausen (MR) is a market leader in tap changers with vacuum technology and is world-renowned for its reliable, long-lasting products. The "record tap changer" will provide its operator with outstanding service for years to come. Driven by an MD-I motor-drive unit, the 10,000th RMV-II is destined for a 170 MVA transformer from SPX Transformer Solutions (Wisconsin) operated on behalf of PPL Electric Utilities.
