Today voltage transformers are widely available in market with varying requirements and necessities. At this present age transformers are considered to be as a most important device in our daily life.
As we are using more number of electrical items in our day to day life we are becoming more and more dependent on such transformers. They are designed in such a way so as to transform us a regular and unremitting power to all of our electrical equipments. Over here we have two classification based on transform one being high voltage and the other one is low voltage.
As the term implies high voltage transformer are usually designed to work with high voltages. In general they are used for transmitting power where the voltage is very high and it is adequate to offer safety hazards. Microwave oven is a perfect example for this kind of high voltage electricity.
Around 120 VAC is imposed on primary windings, where high voltage would step up the primary voltage to an exceptionally high voltage. It is true that we may not come across to the universally accepted definition for a high voltage transformer, but still some industries have proposed different definition for minimum and maximum voltage. Such kind of definition is mostly based on safety concern or on voltage where the arcing will be appearing.
Magnetic low voltage transformer is another name for low voltage transformer. It is designed to supply electrical power in a low form. It is very well organized and it offers an optimum security to the user. The main job of this electrical energy is to lower down the risk of an electrical shock. Such electricity is useful for every household appliance where it is safeguards the user from short circuits. This type of electricity shifts electrical energy from one circuit to another, with the help of magnetic coupling.
High voltage transformer is designed to knob electrical energy which can range from 600 to 5,000 volts. The power is mostly used for metering, providing protection to circuits which are of high voltage, electrostatic industrial appliances and in scientific applications. Since it has the ability to set up primary voltage into a high voltage it is also referred to be as a power transformer.
In general such high transformers are mostly made to transform power from a higher level to a lower level. Some of its applications are used in electrical isolation, instrumentation and in distribution of power and the control of the same. Due to the high voltage capacity that it handles, it has a different winding technology and insulation method for the regular current transformers.
High voltage transformers are helpful to us in many ways. The power is used in CRT displays, medical utensils and in amplifiers too. Laminated transformers are widely used for lighting, power-driven gates, control of alarms, air conditioning and vending mechanisms. It is also useful in transformers like isolation, step up and step down, network of telephone, medical application, in measurement tools, industrial controls, audio systems, music reproduction system, etc.
