How to Enhance Sound Quality with Audio Transformers

Posted by Bill Dull | December 7, 2023 | 0 Comments

At their most basic level, transformers consist of a primary and secondary winding situated around a magnetic core. Audio transformers are used to transmit sound signals from the primary to secondary winding with high accuracy and minimal distortion. Transformers are the most effective solution in many audio applications as they allow for electrical energy to be transferred from one circuit to [...]

Inherently vs. Non-Inherently Limited Transformers

Posted by Bill Dull | December 7, 2023 | 0 Comments

Transformers are passive electrical devices that use magnetic induction to step up or step down incoming AC power voltage to match the voltage needed for the user’s electronic device. They are organized into classifications based on capability and performance level. Class 2 transformers are used for low-voltage circuit control, while Class 3 transformers are used in mid-voltage control [...]

Isolation Transformers for Medical Applications

Posted by Bill Dull | June 28, 2023 | 0 Comments

Managing power for hospital equipment and devices is critical for the continued care and well-being of patients. Essential equipment should be isolated from the power source to protect it from disruption or interference. Most hospitals require that diagnostic and therapeutic equipment used in any medical applications be fully isolated with medical-grade electrical components called isolation [...]

How Losses Affect Your Transformers’ Performance

Posted by Bill Dull | June 5, 2023 | 0 Comments

Transformers experience losses due to the electrical current flowing through the coils and the alternating magnetic field in the core. The losses associated with the coils are known as conduction losses, while the losses arising in the core are referred to as core losses. Conduction losses occur due to the resistance of the coil wire, causing some of the electrical energy to convert into heat [...]
