All electrical devices produce heat as an operational byproduct. In transformers, normal operation causes an internal temperature increase or temperature rise. When the transformer is at its nameplate rating, the transformer temperature rise is the average temperature increase of the windings above the ambient temperature. This increase in temperature has the potential to shorten the [...]

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 [...]
When sourcing a standard or custom transformer, it is essential to choose a quality manufacturer to ensure the product functions as intended. However, given the large number of potential options available, selecting the right one can be challenging. In the following blog post, we provide an overview of some of the key factors to consider when vetting transformer manufacturers to help you choose [...]
With a modular design featuring four interchangeable input prongs for use around the globe, the highly versatile WSX Series Wall Plug-In Power Supply from Triad Magnetics offers exceptional flexibility, performance and value in a device meeting the latest Level VI energy efficiency requirements.
Because of their former reliance on linear technology, external power supplies were notoriously quite inefficient, achieving efficiency levels as low as 50%. Equally problematic, external power supplies typically continued to draw power in no-load situations.
