Toroids and Toroidal Transformers

What do you need to know about inrush currents and toroidal transformers? It is essential to know about inrush currents because they pose risks if not adequately managed. For instance, an inrush current might cause circuit breakers to fuse and blow. In a worst-case scenario, it causes the transformer to fail. Lastly, inrush currents also limit the number of devices that can be connected to a single core’s power source.Read More

Choosing Proper Toroid Cores

It is not uncommon to become easily confused when using and buying a toroid. If you have not worked extensively with toroidal transformer and inductors, it is possible to get confused with practical aspects that are directly related to the devices. Read More

Understanding the Differences Between Types of Toroidal Transformer Materials

Toroidal transformers are frequently used because of their compact size and performance benefits. Toroids perform in a wide range of different applications. These transformers are commonly used in telecommunications, medical devices, ballasts, EMI filters, and musical instruments. Toroids are made from different core materials to meet the specific needs of end applications. Read More

Frequently Asked Questions about Toroidal Transformers and Coil Winding

Understanding the complexities of toroidal transformers can be difficult, especially because they come in different systems and are used in a wide variety of applications. Although we approach each project on a one-on-one basis, there are similarities between winding, materials, and cores. Below, we have compiled a small list of frequently asked questions about toroidal transformers.Read More

The Main Reasons Engineers Use Toroidal Transformers

If you are questioning whether a toroidal transformer is best for your electronic devices, you may want to consider the pros and cons. Understanding what benefits a toroidal transformer has makes it easier to determine if a toroid is the correct core shape for your transformer. Read More

Differences Between Ferrite and Powdered Iron Cores for Toroid

What do you think of when you think of coils? Is it an item with a doughnut-like coil that has magnetic insides? This is not to be confused with a slug-turned coil. A slug-turned coil has a cylindrical shape, and it has adjustable iron and ferrite cores (toroids are less adjustable).They’re many reasons to consider toroids over other coils. Read More
