The modular system used in our TAPCON® 240 and TAPCON® 260 voltage regulators provides maximum flexibility and a comprehensive scope of function. The voltage regulators of the TAPCON® series provide the right device for all scenarios. our goal has been to provide our customers with the best possible solutions.Maschinenfabrik Reinhausen (MR) has been developing and manufacturing voltage regulators for over 40 years. is the right choice for challenging regulation work extending beyond the standard scope of the TAPCON® 240. Modular and flexible design I The ideal solution for both simple regulation tasks TAPCON® 260 – the all-rounder Our all-rounder. TAPCON® 240 and TAPCON® 260 allow you to run up to 16 transformers in parallel and support the current control system protocols for station automation – ideal for flexible and convenient voltage regulation. above all. the TAPCON® 260 can also support integration in redundant network systems with the RSTP and PRP protocols. On request. in a user-friendly manner thanks to the TAPCON®-trol configuration software. All this time. interrupt-free communication is ensured. BETTER VOLTAGE REGULATION.

TAPGUARD® 240 and TAPGUARD® 260 can be installed quickly due to insulation displacement connectors and diverse assembly variants. TAPCON® 240 and TAPCON® 260 are therefore ideal for flexible and convenient voltage regulation. We place great emphasis on operator comfort in devices from the TAPCON® range.

This includes a contrast-rich graphics display with clearly arranged indicators and freely programmable LEDs.TAPCON ® 240. The standard control system protocols for station automation are supported – including IEC 61850 Edition 2 with immediate effect.

The firmware of the TAPCON® 260 is adapted specifically to your needs. TAPCON ® 260 TAPCON® 240 V V V Solution for phase-shifter regulation Customized regulation functions are available to meet virtually all customer requirements. parallel transformer bank operations. The parallel bank operation solution Parallel bank operation is the regulation of a bank of transformers comprising three single-phase transformers with three separate motor-drive units and on-load tap-changers. 100 MW generator ~ TAPCON ® 260 TAPCON® 240 Z 100 MW 5 . Extending beyond the function of the TAPCON® 240. there are no limits to your individual voltage regulation requirements. one single TAPCON® 260 voltage regulator is enough to control the three motor-drive units. This produces a voltage regulator which can handle simple regulation tasks as well as complex challenges and thereby satisfy your every requirement including the regulation of three-winding transformers. The load voltage of a bank of transformers is regulated as per the voltage regulation description. MAXIMUM INDIVIDUALITY. With the TAPCON® 260. In this application. For example.TAPCON® 260 – PROVEN TECHNOLOGY. a phase-shifter regulation project has already been implemented where a TAPCON® 260 regulates the desired power splitting. our professional TAPCON® 260 device offers virtually unlimited possibilities. or individual programming for the phase-shift oscillator regulation.
