<< I have a description of a couple of pigs that are available, but I am
confused, and would like to get a translation from those that are
more familiar with the beast:
Primary is listed as 14400/24940Y, there is an impeadance listed,
and for taps, there are (+, -, N, J) listed.
I am trying to translate this notation.
Specifically: what is the 24940Y?
What are the various tap listing mean?
I assume - is none, but perhaps that is what N is?
Also, the possibility exists to pick up a 3KVA unit, in place of
I am assuming the smaller unit would be easier to move about,
but I want to make sure I can push it as hard as I think I can.
the 3KVA unit could be run at as high as 6KVA, yes?
[Or should I just bite the bullet, and live with the larger
size of the 5KVA unit?]
I know, always go for more power, but I need to make it fit in the garage
I don't know what the numbers stand for. I would go for the 5 kva unit. I
have one and made a small stand to sit in on that has casters on the bottom.
Definitely too heav to lift. Make sure it is a two bushing transformer. I
have run mine as high as 8 kva and it does not even get warm.
I checked the label on mine last night. It has the same numbers as the one
that you are looking at - 14400/24940Y. Manufactured by Westinghouse with 5
tap settings which will provide 12,540 volts (52.25 : 1) up to 14,400 volts
(60 : 1).
