Waterproof transformer is a kind of waterproof, moisture-proof function of the transformer, the internal structure is a ring transformer.

The reason why a waterproof transformer can be waterproof is partly because it has a specialized protective shell that other transformers do not have, and partly because its interior is sealed with epoxy resin with good thermal conductivity. The combination of the two determines that waterproof transformers can effectively cope with harsh environments such as high temperatures, rain, and water immersion. Moreover, the specialized integrated waterproof shell can effectively solve the problem of poor waterproof sealing and anti-corrosion performance. The input and output leads are made of wire with cold resistance and UV resistance characteristics, which can effectively cope with the aging of the wire caused by strong UV radiation during the day and the low outdoor temperature environment in northern winter.

Waterproof transformers can be classified into three types according to their shells: aluminum shell, iron shell, and plastic shell waterproof transformers. The aluminum shell waterproof transformer with the best heat dissipation is also the most popular.


What is the function of a waterproof transformer?


The protection level of the waterproof transformer is IP67, and its main function is to be waterproof and rainproof. It also has the functions of high temperature resistance, cold resistance, UV resistance, and good heat dissipation. It is mainly designed for outdoor applications such as rain, water immersion (in pools, riverbanks, seaside), and high air humidity. The waterproof transformer adopts a circular transformer inside, which has the characteristics of high efficiency and low temperature rise.


What are the applications of waterproof transformers?


Mainly used in places with waterproof or moisture-proof requirements, such as landscape, outdoor engineering lighting, LED wall washing lights, LED underwater lights, LED buried lights, etc. Considering outdoor construction and installation, it is generally required to have overload and short circuit protection.

With the continuous development of national construction and the continuous improvement of people’s living environment, waterproof transformers rely on their advantages in waterproofing, sealing, insulation, anti-corrosion, heat dissipation, and other aspects. The market demand has been continuously increasing, and the development prospects are extremely broad.
