Toroidal Transformers

ABOUT TOROIDAL TRANSFORMERS

There are several advantages of toroidal transformers. These are power transformers utilizing a toroidal core. Primary and secondary coils are wound on this core and the toroidal shape allows for a shorter mean length per turn, reducing I2R losses in winding which are the main losses in this type of transformer yielding a smaller design improving overall efficiency.

TOROIDAL TRANSFORMER CONSTRUCTION

Line frequency toroidal transformers start with a core made from a continuous strip of thin, typically M4, grain-oriented electrical grade silicon steel. Silicon grains in the steel are oriented based on the rolling direction of the steel and are slit parallel to that orientation, creating the preferred path for magnetic flux. Strips are available in numerous widths; for smaller and mid-sized cores these are typically available in 1mm increments, and larger toroidal cores strips are available in 5mm increments. This steel has a thin inorganic coating for high interlaminar resistance, providing insulation between lamination windings and a good stacking factor. To create the core, a strip of grain-oriented electrical grade silicon steel is tightly wound under controlled conditions and tension on a mandrel, similar to a clock spring with the ends spot-welded in place, assuring a firm and congruous magnetic path. Unfortunately winding of the core creates mechanical and magnetic stresses, which change the molecular structure of the core. To return the material to a full stress relief condition, the core is placed in an annealing furnace. Using a precise heating and cooling profile ensures that the silicon grains are in the single preferred magnetic direction.
When comparing a toroidal transformer vs standard transformer, a toroidal transformer core insulation consists of four layers of 2mil polyester film (other materials are available) applied to the core using a toroidal tape winding machine. This insulation provides 100% surface coverage, also protecting and cushioning the core from the windings and reducing vibration. Primary windings are applied by a toroidal winder and if needed lead wires are attached. The primary to secondary insulation uses the same process and materials as the core insulation, to meet the standard test requirement of 4 kV RMS for 1 minute between primary and secondary. Secondary windings are applied by a toroidal winder and if needed lead wires are attached. The copper wire has a base coat of polyester and a heavy topcoat of an amide imide (200°C). The copper wire is wound uniformly over the entire core to provide: better heat dissipation, minimum flux leakage, and to maintain a low voltage between adjacent turns. The outer insulation is then applied using the same process and materials as the other insulation layers, except only two layers of polyester film are used.

Toroidal Transformer Design Options

Thermal Protection - Usually in the primary circuit, normally closed-auto reset opens at high-temperature UL, CSA, VDE listed components. Center Hole Potting - Thermoplastic material for high mounting precision. Threaded insert or press-fitted stud is optional. A thermally conductive compound is available. Electrostatic Screen - Copper foil (2mil) laminated between polyester film and tape to reduce capacitive coupling between primary and secondary windings, tightly wound over primary insulation. Medical / Safety Shield - Polyester laminated (5mil) copper foil creates a physical barrier between primary and secondary windings, terminated at one end with green and yellow earth wire to meet UL 2601 and IEC 601 (also ideal for audio toroidal transformers and use in toroidal transformer amplifiers). Magnetic Shield - Several turns of silicon grain-oriented silicon steel are tightly wound around the toroidal circumference, fixed in place by outer insulation. Can also be useful in audio toroidal transformers and toroidal transformer amplifiers.

Uses of Toroids for your line frequency applications

50/60Hz power toroidal transformers have unmatched flexibility and efficiency providing a higher performance compact transformer. Since there is no air gap, it results in a stacking factor of 97.5% of its weight. Power toroidal transformers can also operate at higher flux densities than standard E-I laminated transformers, thus reducing the number of turns necessary to induce a given voltage across the same cross-section of the core. This means a lower series resistance in the winding, reducing the I2R copper losses. Given the same power output requirements, ambient temperature, and temperature rise allowances, a toroidal transformer vs standard transformer will use less material to produce an equivalent transformer leading to a smaller and lighter solution than an equivalent standard laminated transformer. Uses of Toroids are also well suited for audio toroidal transformer applications and toroidal transformer amplifiers. With all the above reasons the question should not be “Why to choose a toroidal transformer,” it should be why not!

TOROIDAL TRANSFORMER VS STANDARD TRANSFORMER - USES OF TOROID TRANSFORMER

Simplified Mounting

A one bolt mounting scheme easily and quickly mounts the toroid, avoiding costly mechanical design and tooling charges associated with the first piece of custom conventional E-I laminated transformers. A power toroid, toroidal autotransformers, and toroidal medical-grade isolation transformers have a low center-of-gravity along with reduced weight, such that a lower gauge sheet metal is required to support a toroidal transformer. There are many uses Of Toroid, namely to further reduce your product’s weight and material and labor cost by eliminating three screws per assembly.
When comparing toroidal transformer vs standard transformer, a toroidal power transformer has extremely low no-load losses. When used in an application where a circuit is in a quiescent or “stand-by” mode for long periods, the potential power reduction can be significant, sometimes 80% to 90% lower

Low No-Load Losses

Low Weight

Because they are more efficient, toroid isolation transformers and toroidal autotransformers can be up to 50% lighter (depending on power rating) than E-I laminated transformers. Low weight simplifies end product design by reducing mounting hardware and supporting enclosure requirements.
The core of a toroid transformer is formed from a single strip of grain-oriented electrical grade silicon steel, tightly wound in the form of a clock spring with the ends spot-welded in place. The copper wire is wound over the polyester film, forming a silent, stable design without the use of environmentally harmful glues or varnishes. It will not clack or buzz anywhere near the level as would many pieces of separate lamination under the same changing magnetic field. The magnetic field of a toroid core intensifies the field, not contributing to the problem of layer-to-layer vibration.

Low Acoustical Noise

Higher Efficiency

The combination of very low core losses (1/2 watt per pound), a lower mean length per turn, and fewer turns yield lower I2R losses. This unique toroidal transformer construction allows toroidal transformer vs standard transformer to be typically between 15% and 30% more efficient. As a rule, the larger the transformer the more efficient a toroidal transformer becomes.
Since most of the losses in a toroid transformer are in the copper wire, the toroid cools off quicker than the conventional E-I transformer type with more iron. At half the load, the toroidal transformer’s temperature rise is only about 30% of what it is at full load.
Lower Operating Temperature
Radiate Lower Magnetic Fields
Toroidal transformer vs standard transformer (including toroidal medical isolation transformers) is made from one solid piece of material focusing on the field within the core. In addition, the primaries and secondaries are wound uniformly around the entire core. This results in very low radiated magnetic fields. The toroidal transformer is perfect for applications with circuitry, which is highly sensitive to stray magnetic fields. In certain cases, the single bolt mounting allows the toroid to be rotated in place, to yield the best possible results without any additional tooling or sheet metal work. This can be specifically important in medical equipment having especially sensitive electronics; a toroidal medical isolation transformer typically can be placed in closer proximity to these electronics without additional shielding. Can also be useful in audio toroidal transformers.
Toroidal power transformers have a lower core loss, operate at a higher flux density, and allow the conductive windings to be in intimate contact with the core. This enhances current flow at all points in the core yielding a transformer, which is smaller than its E-I transformer counterpart. Electrical and mechanical designers appreciate a toroid’s compact dimensions, especially where low height is a consideration.

Small Size

Flexible Dimensions

Power toroids and power chokes are not constrained to specific lamination sizes. Since the height and diameter of toroids may be carefully varied, uses of toroid allow flexibility to accommodate the specific height and width design requirements.

STANDARD TOROIDAL ISOLATION TRANSFORMERS

These standard toroidal transformers provide general isolation for general purpose applications for most electrical products which require a step-down or step-up in voltage. They consist of dual 117 V primaries and dual secondaries. Power capacity ranges from 100 to 3,000 VA. By offering dual primaries these are easily configurated for 120 V or 240 V operation. Dual secondaries range from 2 to 12 V windings to 2 to 120 V windings. This variety offers the option of stepping down/stepping up your line voltage or simply providing isolation from your voltage source to your equipment.

STANDARD TOROIDAL AUTO TRANSFORMERS

These standard toroidal autotransformers step up or step-down line voltage, to suit your equipment’s input voltage requirement. Autotransformers consist of a single winding with various taps. They provide no isolation since there is no physical separation between the primary and secondary winding. In circumstances where voltage isolation between the input and output is not needed, autotransformers are ideal. Since the primary and secondary windings of an autotransformer share common turns, you can expect the size and weight reduction of about 30-70%, which results in a significant cost reduction.

Toroidal Isolation Transformer Wiring Diagram Low Profile Miniature Isolation Transformers

Low Profile Toroid Isolation Transformers offer:

  • Greater efficiency.
  • Magnetic field of a toroid lowers stray losses (leakage flux).
  • Lower audible vibration.
  • Easier mounting.

LOW PROFILE PC MOUNT TOROIDAL ISOLATION TRANSFORMERS

Our low-profile PCB Mount toroidal power transformers come fully encapsulated in a plastic case. These are designed for through-hole PCB mounting and are provided with a built-in central screw holder that will accommodate M4/M5 machine screws or self-tapping screws. This permits you to secure the toroidal Isolation transformer to the PC board before soldering. There is also room inside the case allowing for other components to be included with the transformer to form a homogeneous unit. Typical components that can be added include PTC thermistors, fuses, re-settable thermal switches, rectifiers, and voltage regulators. All low-profile PC mount toroidal isolation transformer models are configured for 2x115 V Input voltages at 50/60Hz. They pass high voltage testing at 0.5 KVAC between primary to primary, secondary to secondary, and 4 kV primary to secondary. They are specified at an ambient temperature of 70°F and can withstand elevated ambient temperatures of up to 70˚C.

TOROIDAL POWER INDUCTORS 50/60HZ

These standard power chokes come in ratings from 0.2Ws to 25Ws. Toroidal power chokes are most commonly used in line frequency (50/60Hz) AC circuits as part of a DC filter. By using a toroidal power choke, you can reduce the physical size of the overall filter. This is through the size reduction yielded by the toroidal power inductor design and also the required filter capacitors in your LC circuit. The magnetic field of a toroid power inductor also contains any stray magnetic field, further enhancing your filter design.
