The technology of GEAFOL dry-type transformers
The GEAFOL principle has succeeded in producing distribution transformers with excellent electrical, mechanical and thermal characteristics, which have also proven to be particularly compatible with the environment.
Exceeding highest safety standards
GEAFOL dry-type transformers conform with the fire behavior, environmental and climate classes defined in standard IEC 60076-11 as follows:
E2 Environmental class (E3 on request)
F1 Fire behaviour class (highest defined class)
C2 Climate category (C3, C4, C5 on request)
Since July 1, 2015, transformers that are installed within the European Economic Area (EEA) must meet the ecodesign requirements of the new directive, provided that they fall within the scope of the directive. Because the directive is a measure to implement Ecodesign Directive 209/125/EC, the CE mark is used as evidence of compliance. GEAFOL Neo transformers are designed accordingly and are particularly low-loss and economical. The transformers fulfill standard DIN EN 50588-1. In addition, the GEAFOL Neo can already be configured in accordance with stage two of the Ecodesign Directive, which sets even stricter minimum standards for energy efficiency and must be implemented by July 1, 2021.
We produce the GEAFOL in accordance with VDE 0532-76-11, IEC 60076-11, DIN EN 60076-11, DIN EN 50541-1 and EN 50588-1 (ecodesign). GEAFOL dry-type transformers also can be designed to meet special national specifications, or customers’ wishes.
