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.Custom Coil Winding

When calling a company to discuss custom coil winding, what product details should you bring up?

You need to narrow down your design possibilities, and the first step is to determine if you need a transformer or an inductor. Next, you must decide on the specific application. Some transformers are used in common mode chokes, whereas some transformers are explicitly used for switch-mode. The application allows us to help you select the right core, size, and geometry.

Do you need to know about outputs currents and voltage?

Specific transformers, also known as switchers, do not only function in a frequency range. They also operate in a circuit topology. The operating mode describes how transformers circuits are used. Standard modes include Flybacks, bridge mode, and forward converter. You need to specify the operating mode, primarily when used for switch-mode type transformers.

Do you need to provide input voltage?

You should provide input voltage with the output voltage because it helps to determine the turns-ratio needed for custom coil winding. Designers need this information to decide secondary voltage needs for stepped-down and stepped-up transformers.
