This 12-0-12 24Volt 5 Ampere Transformer general purpose chassis mounting mains Transformer. Transformer has 240 V primary windings and centre tapped secondary winding. The transformer has flying colored insulated connecting leads ( Approx 100 mm long ). The Transformer act as step down transformer reducing AC – 240V to AC – 12V.
The Transformer gives two outputs of 24V, 12V and 0V. The Transformer’s construction is written below with details of Solid Core and Winding.The transformer is a static electrical device that transfers energy by inductive coupling between its winding circuits. A varying current in the primary winding creates a varying magnetic flux in the transformer’s core and thus a varying magnetic flux through the secondary winding. This varying magnetic flux induces a varying electromotive force (E.M.F) or voltage in the secondary winding. The transformer has cores made of high permeability silicon steel. The steel has a permeability many times that of free space and the core thus serves to greatly reduce the magnetizing current and confine the flux to a path which closely couples the windings.
It has many applications like in DIY projects Requiring In-Application High current drain,On chassis AC/AC converter,Designing a battery Charger.
