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

Toroids and Custom Coil Winding

A toroidal transformer consists of enamel-coated or bare copper wires that are wound onto the doughnut-shaped magnetic core (a toroid). When engineers combine magnetic cores and copper wire, they get a centralized energy field that surrounds the entire toroidal transformer. Custom coil winding creates a steady flow of energy that is enough for powering devices and machines.Read More

Toroidal Transformers Help Reduce Production Costs

All electrical engineers are looking to reduce the cost of building equipment. Even a fraction of a cent off total construction can amount to serious savings for a business. One of the new ways that engineers have been dropping production costs is by incorporating toroidal transformers.Read More

The Important Parts of a Toroidal Transformer

Power system design engineers commonly turn to custom toroidal power transformers and inductors because of all the benefits the tool offers. Each aspect of the production process enhances the capabilities and characteristics of a toroid and transformer winding.Read More

Iron Cores and Transformer Winding

There are many essential properties of iron powder when it is used as a toroid core material for an inductor that is used in switch-mode power supplies. Engineers must contemplate the different DC output choked, the power factor correction inductors, the differential-mode line filter inductor, and the high frequency resonate inductor.Read More

What are the Main Reasons to Opt for a Toroidal Transformer?

Those that use these devices already know of the benefits they offer when compared to similarly powered transformers. Toroids are small in size, and so they are often used when engineers need a transformer that boasts low magnetic interference. The shape of a toroid is ideal for maximizing operational efficiency. If you want to save money with toroids on day one (until the end of their life), you should strongly consider using toroidal transformers.Read More

Popular Core Materials

Without a core, motors and transformers do not function properly. The core used to build step-up/step-down transformers is typically composed of several materials. Materials are chosen to fulfill the needs of specific applications. Cores directly affect the function of transformers. Read More

The Ins-and-Outs of Toroids

A toroidal transformer is used for a multitude of different electronic applications. The rule of thumb is that if housing can fit a toroid, then the device can use a toroid. In many situations, a toroid is ideal, but it is not also practical for specific applications.Read More

Which Transformer is Right for You

When you have a choice between a toroid and other similarly powered transformers, what is the right choice to make? Commercial and home devices (TVs, computers, audio systems) require small transformers of various core shapes. As devices get smaller and thinner, smaller transformers become more and more critical.
