April 29, 2014 - Featuring single-phase, pole-mounted design, Micropole Transformer is suited for small, isolated load applications. Unit is fully tested in line with IEEE oil-filled distribution transformer standards and is designed to fit customer needs. Transformer can be used as integral part of standard recloser and switched capacitor bank installation for control voltage.

ABB Introduces Micropole Distribution Transformer to US Market

ABB’s single-phase, pole-mounted “Micropole” distribution transformer for 3kVA or less; designed for small or isolated load applications, providing efficient, reliable power.

Chicago, IEEE PES, – ABB, the leading power and automation technology group, today announced that a new Micropole transformer for small, isolated load applications is now available in the US market. The Micropole distribution transformer is a single phase, pole mounted distribution transformer for 3 kVA or less.

Replacing under-utilized high kVA pole-mounted transformers with a Micropole reduces system losses in light-load applications up to three times less no-load losses compared to a 10kVA unit. The small, lightweight design provides ease of handling during installation and uses less pole space. The Micropole transformer is fully tested in line with IEEE oil-filled distribution transformer standards and is designed to fit customer needs.

“We are excited to show off the new Micropole distribution transformer to our customers at the 2014 IEEE event in Chicago,” said Martin Doré, marketing manager, ABB. “In a world that’s driven today by economical and energy efficiency considerations, it will come as a surprise to many US investor owned utilities (IOU’s) and rural electric co-ops (REC’s) that there is now a highly-efficient and reliable pole-mounted distribution transformer on the market for small load applications.”

The new Micropole transformer will be on display at the 2014 IEEE PES T&D Conference & Exhibition in Chicago. ABB has the largest booth on the show floor with more than 6,300 square feet of equipment, video interactive touch screens and a “Smart Bar” featuring ABB’s “Smart Squad” transformer experts and other power equipment authorities “on tap” to answer questions.

The Micropole transformer can be used as an integral part of a standard recloser and switched capacitor bank installation for control voltage. Its small size simplifies siting and installation of capacitor banks. The Micropole can replace oversized, under-utilized transformers while saving costs and losses.
