Transformer Industry Growing out of Necessity

There are a number of different electric transformers available that provide specific forms of power for numerous applications. From high voltage to low voltage transformers and all the types in between such as isolation, auto, zig zag, toroidal, and pulse transformers. Each of these transformers has a specific purpose and fits into very specific applications. It’s important to know what type of transformer you are looking for so that you can get the best possible result. In this post we will be taking a brief look into pulse transformers and what they have to offer.

Pulse transformers release stored energy in the form of a pulse; this is where they get their name. They typically operate in direct current and interface a pulse forming network and a load. Because these transformers operate at a high frequency they require low loss cores. Pulse transformers are often found in detail logic and telecommunications operations such as camera flashes, radar equipment, and particle acceleration. They are also found in the digitization of computers as well as in electronic circuit applications. Pulse transformers have even been used in the aerospace industry to alter the surface properties of some components. Pulse transformers are able to meet the very specific operating requirements for this application.

There are many types of transformers and the number will continue to grow as the manufacturing industry expands and processes evolve. As the industry evolves we will need more focused and specialized equipment in order to get the best possible end product. Always be sure to research your options before purchasing to make sure you are making the best decision for your needs and application.
