   Transformer Types / Applications       
   Your choices are...         
   High-Voltage Transformer       High-voltage transformers are used in situations where a high voltage is needed. 
   High Frequency Transformer       Transformers used in high-frequency applications. 
   Interface Transformer       Interface transformers are used in communications applications where the signal is isolated. 
   Isolation Transformer       Isolation transformers are low-power transformers used to isolate the primary and secondary windings completely without affecting the quality of the signal passing through. Noise represents a typical isolated signal. In isolation transformers, there is typically no change in the voltage from primary to secondary. Isolation transformers are also used to ground electronic circuits.   
   Inverter Transformer       Inverter transformers are used in inverter circuits, such as power conversion inverters. 
   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. 
   Planar Transformer       The winding of a planar transformer are patterns on a printed circuit board (PCB). 
   RF Transformer       RF transformers are low-power devices normally used for impedance matching that operate over the radio frequency or microwave spectrum. 
   Single Phase Transformer       These are transformers that operate with single phase voltage. 
   Switch Mode Transformer       Switch mode transformers or switching transformers are used  in switching power supplies and DC-DC converters. These transformers provide the energy storage element to transfer energy from input-to-output in discrete packets that are required in switching power supplies, regulators, or converters. 
   Telecom / LAN Transformer       Telecom transformers are used in applications that require high bandwidth and fast switching speeds. The signal is isolated between the primary and secondary grounds. 
   Three Phase / Polyphase Transformer       In polyphase (3-phase) transformers, the three primary windings are connected together and the three secondary windings are connected as well. 
   Trigger / Gate Drive Transformer       Trigger transformers are used to drive high-speed switching devices, such as FETs and IGBTs. They are commonly used in applications like switching power supplies. 
   Other       Other unlisted, specialized, or proprietary transformer type. 
   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. 
   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. 
   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 
   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. 
   Constant Current Transformer       Constant current transformers or current regulators are designed to deliver constant current under varying loading conditions. They are most often used to provide the power to series-connected street lights. 
   Encapsulated Transformers       Encapsulated transformers have a protective coating of cured plastic or other encapsulant which encloses the unit and provides weatherproofing. 
   Constant Voltage Transformer (CVT)       Constant voltage transformers keep the secondary voltage constant even if the primary (source) voltage changes. 
   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. 
   Electronics Transformer       Current or voltage transformers used as measuring instruments in the electronics industry. 
   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.

   Dish / Disk Mount       A simple rubber washer and metal disk or dish secures the transformer to the chassis or board. There is usually a through-hole in the middle of the disk that allows for a screw to hold the transformer down. 
   H-Frame       H-frame mounting is used in applications where high vibration or shock is present. It is an "H" shaped frame that the transformer sits on. The frame is secured to the chassis or board. 
   Modular Jack       Magnetics incorporated into the RJ-45 form factor ensure high common mode noise immunity, while maintaining signal integrity. 
   Pad-Mounted       Pad-mounted transformers are mounted on the ground, sitting on a concrete (or other material) pad. They are normally step-down transformers used in power distribution systems to step down the voltage from the high voltage terminals of an underground distribution system to the low voltage of the end user’s needs. 
   PC / PCB Mount       Any of a variety of signal transformers mounted on PCBs. They can either be surface-mounted or through-hole configurations, using the soldering method to hold the transformers. PC-mount transformers offer a small footprint for the design engineer looking to measure sensor current or voltage on a computer board. Some applications for PC or PCB transformers include sensing current overload, ground fault detection, metering, isolated current feed-back signal in switch mode power supplies, motor current load / overload, lighting, switch controls, ultra-sound current, high resolution sonar current, and isolated bi-directional current sensor with full wave bridge.

They are available in a variety of body sizes and pin counts. 
   Surface Mount Technology (SMT)       Surface mount technology (SMT) adds components to a printed circuit board (PCB) by soldering component leads or terminals to the top surface of the board. SMT components have a flat surface that is soldered to a flat pad on the face of the PCB. The PCB pad is typically coated with a paste-like formulation of solder and flux. With careful placement, SMT components on solder paste remain in position until elevated temperatures, usually from an infrared oven, melt the paste and solder the component leads to the PCB pads.   Industry-standard pick-and-place equipment can mount SMT components quickly, accurately, and cost-effectively. SMT is a widely used alternative to mounting processes that insert pins or terminals through holes and solder leads into place on the opposite side of the board.  
   Through Hole Technology (THT)       Through hole technology (THT) mounts components on a printed circuit board (PCB) by inserting component leads through holes in the board, and then soldering the leads in place on the opposite side of the board. 
   Waveguide Assembly       Waveguide assemblies are used in microwave waveguide systems. They consist of a hollow, metallic conductor with a rectangular, elliptical, or circular cross-section. Some conductors contain solid or gaseous dielectric materials.
