11/13/2013 | HIPOWER SYSTEMS Adds Step-Up, Step-Down Transformers to Its Product Offering; Gives Rental Companies Quality and Flexibility in a Portable

Lenexa, KS (November 13th, 2013)—HIPOWER SYSTEMS, a manufacturer of power-generation and power distribution equipment in the U.S. and Canada, today announced the launch of its new line of step-up, step-down transformers.  The transformers, which range from 15 to 500KVA (kilo volt amperes) are available in portable transformer packs and dolly configurations, both of which feature HIPOWER's ultra-secure, carbon- steel-caged enclosures.


"Our rental customers in the U.S. and Canada experience significant demand for these units, which are well-suited for use by entertainment industry companies that rely on generators to power their events,” said Raimond Castillo,  HIPOWER Sales Director, Oil & Gas Division. "They're also valuable at remote refineries, job sites and other industrial operations, where they enable users to charge cell phones, run laptops and perform other office operations when suitable power would otherwise be unavailable."


Sample unit featuring: 150kVA Dry Type Step up/down Transformer 480V: 120/208V 60Hz, Skid Type/ casters


In both of these instances, the transformers work by "stepping down" the power—reducing higher voltage feeds (600; 480 volts) to levels as low as 120 volts (as well as 240 or 208). For the entertainment industry specifically, transformers such as these are pivotal to operation, as they filter power that can cause vibration in—and potentially damage to—expensive speakers and other sound equipment.



Features of the HIPOWER Transformers include:

  • 0.090" Aluminum enclosure, Nema 3R, powder coated Hipower White.
  • (1x) Set of Camloks 600/480V 3Ø-4W Input/Output with color coded covers.
  • (1x) Set of Camloks 208V 3Ø-4W Input/Output with color coded covers.
  • Dual voltage input 600V & 480V, Nema 3R, CSA & UL listed transformer.
  • Double Throw Safety Switch with three lockable on-off positions.
  • Heavy duty Carbon Steel cage with 6"x3" forklift pockets & casters.


"HIPOWER SYSTEMS enjoys a reputation for offering some of the finest portable power generation equipment in the world," said Castillo. "With these transformers, our rental-company clients can expand their HIPOWER line with confidence, knowing they'll enjoy the same quality as we offer in our other products."
