Case studies

Isolation transformer

Over the last 20 years we have worked in partnership with major manufacturers of naval weapons sensor platforms and defence systems. Our highly skilled team have developed toroidal, single phase and three phase transformers from 20VA up to 3.2KVA, all within very precise tolerances (within 0.2%). Developing the manufacturing process and necessary testing procedure has required close collaboration with our customer, something we encourage wherever necessary.

Military ship
