Toroidal transformers are not large components in any system, but they play an essential role. The design of these components is deceptively simple, and it looks like a very basic donut-shaped core with windings, typically using copper wire for the windings.
However, when working with one of the top toroidal transformer manufacturers, OEMs will find that the design, size, and even the winding pattern used must be customized to the specific application. Selecting a company with the ability to work with your in-house team for transformer engineering and design can help to speed up the development process and lessen time to market considerations.
Choosing the right manufacturer is critical in getting the component that is able to fit into a small space in the device, application, or system, while also limiting any loss or leakage of magnetic flux to reduce the amount of electromagnetic interference that is produced through the system.
Expertise with Toroidal Transformer Production
Not all transformer manufacturers specialize in the production of toroidal transformers. It is essential for an OEM to not just confirm the company makes quality transformers, but to verify they specialize in the engineering and manufacturing of the specific type of transformer required.
Take the time to ask about engineering and manufacturing for past customers and note the level of production for the various types of transformers, inductors, and chokes.
Before choosing any toroidal transformer manufacturers, review your current and anticipated maximum production requirements. By looking at the anticipated future requirements, the OEM can talk to the manufacturer to confirm they offer the capacity to produce this number of transformers.
In addition to the actual physical production capacity of the shop or service, be sure to confirm the order turnaround and delivery schedule.
Toroidal transformer manufacturers that cannot commit the necessary order volume, delivery schedule, or specific requirements of the transformers are never a good choice, regardless of the cost per unit that is quoted.
