What is the Difference Between a Toroid and Solenoid

Knowing the differences between a toroid and a solenoid helps you create better and more efficient electronic devices. Each transformer type has pros and cons, and so they should not be used interchangeably. Picking the right transformer for your application is an utter necessity. Below, we want to go over some of the main differences between these core types.Read More

What are the Benefits of a Toroidal Power Transformer

Transformers are an essential part of electronic devices because they can transfer power between two separate parts of an electrical circuit. These important devices are necessary for creating isolation while being able to handle varying voltage and current. Without a transformer, electrical systems we rely on every day would cease to function.Read More

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
