C5-, E4- and F1-Certification of our cast resin transformers
created on 08.09.2023
According to IEC 60076-11 (8/2018) casting resin transformers are used in different fire,
Climatic and environmental classes. HTT casting resin transformers are certified according
to classes C5, E4 and F1: Appropriate type tests were carried out in the summer of 2023 at
the CESI testing institute in Milano (Italy).
With these certifications, HTT cast resin transformers meet the strictest
current requirements in terms of operational safety.
The climate class takes into account the lowest ambient temperature during transport,
Storage and operation.
class C1 Class C2 class C3 class C4 class C5 class Cxy*
transport&storage -25°C -25°C -40°C -50°C -60°C -x°C
operation -5°C -25°C -25°C -40°C -50°C -y°C
* The temperatures –X°C and –Y°C can be agreed on a project-specific basis.
The quantities of humidity, drip water, condensation, temperature and pollution
determine the environmental conditions for casting resin transformers.
Condensation does not occur at the transformer, the pollution is negligible.
This condition is usually observed when installed in a dust-free and dry environment.
Occasional condensation may occur at the transformer (e. g. transformer is switched off).
Contamination to a limited extent is possible.
Frequent condensation or light pollution or a combination of both.
Frequent condensation or medium pollution or a combination of both.
Frequent condensation or heavy pollution or a combination of both.
The fire class specifies the fire load in case of a fire in the vicinity of the transformer
and the development of toxic and obscuring flue gases.
There is no specific fire risk to be taken into account. The release of toxic substances
smoke and visual impairments must nevertheless be reduced to a minimum.
Limitation of the fire hazard is necessary. The release of toxic substances and
smoke that obstructs vision must be reduced to a minimum.
