Toroid Inductor Design: Wiring & Winding

When creating custom coil winding, you need to consider more than the intended use of the toroids. It is important to account for core material, packaging, and wire/winding. Below, we want to focus on the importance of custom coil winding and wire. Coil wire and winding is the most important component to determine. Once you plan, picking core packaging and core material becomes much easier.Read More

Using Steel Alloys for Toroidal Coil Winding

All transformers need a core to function, but not all cores are created equal. Different cores provide different characteristics to meet the varying demands of electronic devices (big and small). Do not use core interchangeably. The geometry and size of a core dictate power output. It also determines the current and voltage of the transformer. Once you choose a material, the next step is custom coil winding.Read More

Comparing Toroidal Transformations and Other Transformers

It is obvious when you look at a toroid because it has a very specific shape. The 360-degree, doughnut-shaped core is made from ferromagnetic materials (iron powder, laminated iron, and more). The devices then go through custom coil winding before it is ready for use. Toroidal transformers are used within various applications that include power supplies, amplifiers, and inverters. In many cases, engineers choose toroidal transformers and custom coil winding over other conventional transformers.Read More

Three Important Considerations for Toroid Coil Winding

To ensure that your toroid meets its intended end use, you must consider three important design considerations. Taking the time to make these considerations ensures that you get the right device without wasting extra money and time. Below, we want to take the time to give an overview of the three considerations you should make for inductor design.Read More

Using Toroids for Efficient and Cool Operations

There are many great reasons to use toroidal transformers and custom coil winding, but the two most important features are efficient and cool operations. For over 40 years, toroids in different configurations and sizes have created a myriad of electronic devices for commercial and residential use. Toroidal core winding is even found inside life-saving medical devices that would not function properly without this small transformer’s help. With precise custom coil winding, you too can achieve the same competitive advantages as other companies using toroids.Read More

Determining Viable Toroid Core Materials

A wide array of materials are used to construct toroidal transformers. Each material type has different characteristics, which means materials should not be used interchangeably for various products and applications. Choosing an optimal core material helps to ensure strong magnetic flux and solid performance. After determining the core material, you must focus attention on custom coil winding.Read More

Design Elements & Workings of a Toroidal Transformer

Toroidal transformers are ring-like in shape, and they are used to help power electronics. It is made from a magnetic core that includes ferrite, powdered iron, or laminated iron. Because of the shape and materials used, a toroid suffers from minimal electromagnetic interference. Engineers use toroids because they increase the overall efficiency of the equipment they work within.Read More

Frequently Asked Questions for Designing Toroids

To design toroidal transformers that meet exact application requirements, you need to ask important questions about what toroids are, how they work, and how to create them. Below, we want to take the time to go over some important questions you should ask. Make sure you have a conversation with trusted professionals.Read More

Learning About Toroids and Custom Coil Winding

Custom Coil Winding

Custom coil winding helps reduce magnetic flux and noise, which makes products more efficient and long-lasting.

We hear a lot of similar questions in our line of business. There is so much nuance to consider when it comes to toroidal transformers and custom coil winding that it is best to trust professionals. There are several options for D.I.Y coil winding kits, but those tools are not reliable and consistent enough to create perfect transformers. It would help if you trusted professionals for custom coil winding, but at the same time, you should educate yourself on what toroids are and how they work.Read More

Integrating Toroidal Transformers into Your Design

Why do so many engineers and manufacturers turn to toroidal transformers? Simply put, these small devices are robust and consistent. These simplistic devices are considered powered transformers that are constructed from a toroidal core that has primary and secondary coils uniformly wound around the entire core. As electrical currents flow through the primary coil, EMF gets induced as well as a current in the secondary winding. The unique shape of these coils allows for substantial reductions in winding and resistive losses, which improves the overall efficiency of the toroid.Read More
