The Load Tap Changers (LTCs) inside transformers perform the critical task of allowing the output voltage to be adjusted up or down, depending upon the demand for power. The INCON® 1250-LTC Programmable Load Tap Changer (LTC) Position Monitor relays critical position information between a distribution transformer LTC and the LTC controller, enabling utilities to run their transformers as efficiently as possible.
Utilities armed with the position information of these LTCs are empowered with data to run their transformers as efficiently as possible.
Installing INCON® LTC Position Monitoring in an existing transformer is easy regardless of make, model, or setup.
Synchro Transmitters can be mechanically coupled to the LTC’s drive mechanism by straight coupling, gears, chain sprockets, or, for the most flexible installation, with INCON® Flexible Couplings.
The “Quick Connect” Flexible Coupling is designed for unique mounting and connecting applications. It makes retrofitting to older equipment easy with standard lengths and coupling diameters to fit most LTC applications.

INCON® Load Tap Changer (LTC) Position Monitors relay critical position information between the LTC and the LTC controller, enabling utilities to control their distribution transformers with precision accuracy. Utilities can also feed the LTC position to the central dispatch center through the SCADA system (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) to know the exact position for a network of many transformers.
Accurately and intelligently balance the loading of a network of transformers.
Regulate line voltage by adjusting feeder voltage.
Reduce power costs by providing the minimum line voltage required.
Deploy predictive transformer maintenance with intelligence.
