Designed primarily to operate medium-pressure Ultraviolet (UV) lamps, Shape has long been recognized as the design/engineering leader of electronic controlled transformers that regulate the output current to assure constant power.
These extremely efficient controlled transformers are widely used in the UV curing and water purification industries, where they help maximize the critical UV spectrum of the lamp’s output, while at the same time extending lamp life. By being able to control ballast output you’re able to meet your manufacturing process and flow requirements. For UV printing and UV curing, this means improved quality control of the curing process.
Shape is also the leading domestic manufacturer of ferroresonant based Constant Current Regulators (CCR) for airport runway and approach lighting applications. Our designs are compliant with the FAA specification AC:150/5345-10. These CCR’s are robust, single core magnetics that are extremely reliable and can be counted on to meet the mission critical task of landing all aircraft.
Controlled Ferroresonant Ballasts (CFB) are PLC-controllable and have analog outputs to provide feedback on system status (i.e. lamp voltage; lamp current; and warm-up, ready, or fail modes.)
Controlled Ferro-resonant transformers from Shape, one of many reasons we’ve become so well known as the provider of Innovative Transformer Solutions.
