Containing: Transformers, Substations, Flameproof equipment, Switchgear, Starters, Switchrooms, Rubber Cables, XLPE Cables and Power Generation.
As an industry leader in electrical, electronic and control solutions, we consistently ensure our products and services meet the expectations of our coal mining customers in terms of safety, technical excellence and reliability.
Ampcontrol designs, manufactures and delivers integrated electrical, electronic and control solutions for tunnelling and infrastructure projects that improve safety,
efficiency and flexibility.
Transformers are highly efficient electrical devices with long life cycles. A transformer built for high efficiency and minimal upkeep will have a higher initial capital cost. But in an environment of decreased capital spending, the economic benefits of purchasing a lower first cost standard transformer compared with a high efficiency unit are worth examining.
As Ampcontrol continues to tailor our approach to transformer design and manufacture, our transformer design engineers are increasingly incorporating ester dielectric fluids, a key technical and environmental advancement occurring in the Australian transformer market.
