Bridgeport Magnetics 8kVA PhazeSaver transformer
By Anthony Capkun
In cooperation with Con Edison in New York City, Bridgeport Magnetics Group has developed the PhazeSaver Model PS8000: a transportable 8000VA transformer to restore 240vAC power from a single 120vAC and neutral source. It can also provide 120V power from a service with two good phases. The PhazeSaver works with both overhead 120vAC/240vAC and underground 120vAC/208vAC systems. Other applications include: emergency power for DC cathodic protection equipment; temporary power for construction sites; charging electric vehicles; and power for stationary mobile emergency command centre vehicles. Two more units can be paralleled for loads higher than 8kVA.
