What are medical-grade transformers?

Have you ever asked the question, “What is the difference between medical grade transformers and non-medical grade transformers?” Well, Medical Grade Transformers are almost exclusively isolation transformers that satisfy many safety guidelines and rules beyond the requirements needed for transformers that are not medical-graded. They are designed to isolate the patient and the operator from …

An Introduction to Toroidal Power Transformer

As you might already know, transformers are devices that transfer power between two parts of an electrical circuit by creating an isolation with varying current and voltage. They are an integral part for almost all electrical applications. Power transformers, are used when high-efficiency power transfer is needed. Depending on the specific application, devices may operate …

Autotransformer vs Isolation Transformer

An isolation transformer is an electrical transformer with a primary and secondary coil winding. These windings are separated by insulation. This insulation limits the risk of electrocution when the active parts and earth are touched simultaneously. An autotransformer is an electrical transformer with only one winding. The term “auto” refers to a single coil acting …

The Difference Between Inductors and Transformers

Transformers and inductors seem very similar in a visual and construction sense. However, they have differing applications and have their own unique design and construction elements. Below is a brief summary about them both, which provides a little guidance to the differences. Inductors An inductor (also called a choke or reactor) is a passive two-terminal …

Types of Magnetic Core Materials for Transformers

The electrical power transformer features primary, secondary, and tertiary windings. The transformer is driven by the flux between the windings. Magnetic cores are used in transformers, which serve as the pathway of the flux. The core can be made from various materials, this post discusses some of them. The magnetic core is basically a material …
