Foster Transformer Co. has announced that five of its transformers have been certified by TUV Rheinland to EN 61558-1 and -2 as safety isolating transformers with safety extra-low-voltage outputs. Models 15347, 15348-50, 15349, 15349-02, and 15964-02 are also UL/C-UL recognized for North America. The 15964-02 is UL/C-UL recognized to UL 5085-1 and CSA 22.2. All other models are recognized to UL 5085-3 (formerly UL 1585) and CSA 22.2 No. 66 as inherently limited class 2 transformers. Global safety certifications simplify designing for export. Models 15347 and 15964-02 offer dual inputs of 115 or 230 V, while the 15349 and 15349-02 are designed for nominal 230 V inputs with taps allowing adjustment from 200 to 240 V, depending on the model. These transformers can lower warranty costs while increasing customer satisfaction, making them ideal for HVAC and refrigeration, control panels, and other applications requiring a low voltage transformer.

But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
