Transformer fan speed controllers

Transformer fan speed controllers

Transformer controllers regulate the speed of fans with electric motors in steps. This stepped speed control is caused by the autotransformer technology they are built on, hence the name transformer. Transformer fan speed controllers are cost efficient and have proven to be very reliable and robust.
