   Your choices are...         
   Current Sense Transformer       Current sense transformers are generally used to detect and measure current. There are two basic types of current sense transformers: those designed and used to precisely measure current in accurate instrumentation applications, and others designed and used in switch-mode power converter type applications.  In power conversion applications, current transformers are used to measure trends, peak values, and average values rather than absolute values. As a result, these devices do not need to have a very high degree of accuracy, but rather need to be efficient, dense, and exist in many shapes and styles capable of supporting all traditional types of manufacturing processes. 
   Digital Transformer       Digital transformers are used in audio applications to isolate the signal and match impedances. 
   Distribution Transformer       Distribution transformers are pole-type transformers that supply relatively small amounts of power to residences. They are used at the end of an electrical utility’s delivery system. Distribution transformers are used in electrical power distribution and transmission systems. These types of transformers have high power, or volt-ampere, ratings.  The power rating is normally determined by the type of cooling methods the transformer may use. Some commonly-used methods of cooling include using oil or some other heat-conducting material. Ampere rating is increased in a distribution transformer by increasing the size of the primary and secondary windings; voltage ratings are increased by increasing the voltage rating of the insulation used in making the transformer. 
   Electronics Transformer       Current or voltage transformers used as measuring instruments in the electronics industry. 
   Encapsulated Transformers       Encapsulated transformers have a protective coating of cured plastic or other encapsulant which encloses the unit and provides weatherproofing. 
   Flyback Transformer (FBT)       Flyback transformers (FBT) or line output transformers (LOPT) are transformers that are designed to produce a very high output voltage (normally in the order of kilovolts) from a relatively low input voltage. Flyback is a topology that uses the flyback - also known as kickback - of an inductor to convert the input voltage to the transformer to a desired output voltage. This is done by first storing the input energy (in the inductor) produced by the input voltage (this is called the charging cycle), and then transferring this energy (this is called the discharge cycle) to the output. They are commonly used to generate high voltage to drive CRTs. 
   GSU Transformer       Generator step-up (GSU) power transformers are used to increase the voltage from a power generator to the desired higher voltage. They are normally located in a power station.

Isolation transformers are also used to ground electronic circuits.   
   Leakage Transformer       Leakage (or stray-field) transformers have a higher leakage inductance than normal transformers. This makes the primary and secondary currents very small, so no thermal overload occurs. These transformers are used for arc welding, discharge lamps, and other applications. 
   Lighting Transformer       Lighting transformers are used to provide suitable power to lights and lighting systems. 
   Medical Transformer       A transformer used in medical applications such as biomedical equipment in hospitals. There are many strict safety rules, guidelines, and laws governing the design, construction, and use  of these transformers. 
   Multi-Ratio Transformer       These transformers have several outputs. Each output corresponds to a different transformer ratio. 
   Neutral Grounding Transformer       Transformers used to provide earth reference points to underground electrical systems. The best way to ground a power system is to obtain the system neutral through a generator or transformer with a wye-connected winding. 
   Planar Transformer       The winding of a planar transformer are patterns on a printed circuit board (PCB). 
   Power Transformer       Power transformers convert one voltage to another at high power levels. Power  transformers  are  used  in  electronic circuits  and come  in  many  different  types  and applications. Power transformers are sometimes considered to be those with ratings of 300 volt-amperes and below.  These transformers normally provide power to the power supply of an electronic device, such as in power amplifiers in audio receivers. 
   Pulse Transformer       Pulse transformers interface a pulse forming network (PFN) and a load. They match the impedance of the load to the PFN in order to maximize power-transfer efficiency.

   Audio Transformer       Audio transformers are ideally suited for voice and data transmission. The frequency response of these transformers typically ranges from 300 Hz to 20 kHz. 
   Autotransformer       Autotransformers are a special type of power transformer that only has one winding. By tapping or connecting at certain points along the winding, different voltages can be obtained. Autotransformers are generally used in low-power applications. 
   Balun Transformer       Balun transformers are used to interface a balanced line (two conductors carrying equal currents in opposite directions) to an unbalanced line (one conductor carrying current and a ground).  Its name is derived from the terms applied to BALanced to UNbalanced lines. 
   Bar Transformer       Bar current transformers are toroidal transformers with a bus bar permanently inserted through the window of the toroid. The bus bar serves as the primary conductor. Bar transformers are inserted directly into the circuit that they will be used to monitor. It is a common error to refer to wound primary transformers as bar transformers because the primary connections are made to busbars. In the wound type, busbars are a means of connection and not continuous bars 
   Buck-Boost Transformer       Buck-boost transformers are used to make small changes to a voltage. Typical usage is for distribution, power, or power supply transformers. 
   Encapsulated Coil       Encapsulated coil transformers have windings that are solidly cast in resin under a vacuum in a mold. This manufacturing process covers the transformer windings in a strong epoxy resin with a high dielectric strength, effectively sealing out moisture and contaminants from the core and coil. Encapsulated coil transformers are dry-type, high-power transformers. They are sometimes called cast coil transformers. 
   Constant Voltage Transformer (CVT)       Constant voltage transformers keep the secondary voltage constant even if the primary (source) voltage changes.
