I just looked it up and they have 208 to 120/240 from 1 KVA to 75 KVA. Search by keyword "208 primary" and look at the single phase units. You don't say anything in your profile but I am assuming you know the ramifications of installing a transformer.
Yes i am an electricain. I am working on a heater project for the company i am working for now. It is for leakage current testing on heaters. They specified and asked if i can get. I am told that an isolation transformer will do the job. Staco said they can do it. Just checking with you all to see what your opinions are on this. Thank You
The transformers you get with a "208 primary" search (second pane down) are right up your alley. For test equipment you could even switch the output topology to test with 3 different grounding references.
Obtain a "Standard", off-the-shelf Single Phase Isolated Transformer, which has a 208V Primary, and 240V Secondary.
Feed the Transformer with a normal 208V 1 Phase 2 Wire + EGC (Equipment Grounding Conductor) Circuit.
On the Secondary side, ground either one of the "X" Terminal outputs... for example, Ground "X2".
Now you have a 240V 2 Wire system with an Ungrounded Conductor and a Grounded Conductor.
The correct way to describe your desired 240V Circuit is:
240V 1 Phase 2 Wire Grounded Circuit.
One "Side" of the Circuit is Ungrounded ("Hot" to Ground), The other "Side" of the Circuit is Grounded - just like the "Neutral" on a 1 Phase 3 Wire Circuit, or the Common "Neutral" on a 208Y/120V 3 Phase 4 Wire Circuit.
Match the KVA rating to the KVA requirement for the test loads. Since the test loads are Resistance type loads, the power ratings will (almost always) be in KW (Kilo Watts). If the Heaters consist of only Heater Elements, then the KW ratings will equal KVA.
If these loads only have Ampere ratings, multiply the Amperes by 240, which will show the KW / KVA rating. example: Heater Element listed for 240V, FLA = 10 240 x 10 = 2400 VA (Volt-Amps) Minimum KVA requirement: 2.4 KVA Transformer size: 3.0 KVA
