  117 VAC – 60 Hz |  2 x 115 VAC 50-60 Hz  |  2 x 0-100-120 VAC 50-60 Hz   

The Standard Power Transformer Line of toroids is characterized by its tight regulation, for applications where off load voltages are a concern; and very low temperature rise, which is useful for high ambient operating conditions, or where instantaneous power – in excess of rating – is required. Dual inputs (115/230 VAC) are standard, as are potted centers and stranded leads. Plitron makes a broad range of high quality, approved, toroidal transformers. Designed for general purpose applications. Three separate primary input configurations are shown on this site.

Part Number Selection


Primary Configurations | Mechanical| Part Number Selector | Tolerances & General Specs | Top Of Page

The selection chart is an aid to building a PLITRON part number. Part number listings by power level are available in the Ratings Table. The example, shown below, part number 087026201, describes a 500VA toroidal transformer with a dual input (115/230 VAC), 2 x 40 VAC outputs (at 6.25 A each), a potted and drilled center, and stranded leads. * Options. Subject to minimum order.

Tolerances and General Specs


Primary Configurations | Mechanical| Part Number Selector | Tolerances & General Specs | Top Of Page

  • Approvals

All standard line products are UL recognized and CSA approved, and carry respective labels. UL file number E110277 for class A (105°C) insulation systems. CSA file number LR-84566 to C22.2 #66-1988 – Specialty Transformers Standard. In addition, 50 Hz transformers are constructed to the commercial requirements of European approval agencies, such as VDE and carry the CE mark. Primary leadouts are double insulated. Transformers are intended for use in end-product equipment where the suitability of the combination is to be determined by the appropriate approval authority.

  • Inputs

 Three input configurations are offered. The standard input is dual 115 VAC windings (Type 7), parallel connected for 115 VAC, or series for 230 VAC at 50 / 60 Hz. Optional input type A is a single 117 VAC winding at 60 Hz. Type 5 is an optional 6 wire input, dual 0-100-120 VAC windings, series or parallel connected for 100, 120, 220 or 240 VAC at 50 / 60 Hz. See schematics for more details.

  • Insulation

Primary to secondary: Polyester tape, class B (130°C). 50 Hz transformers, four layers minimum. Meets the test requirement of >4 kV for one minute. 60 Hz transformers, three layers minimum, >2.5 kV for one minute. Interwinding secondary (where required) and outer insulation: Polyester tape, two layers minimum.

  • Temperature Rise

Maximum 50°C. At maximum rated load, continuous.

  • Outputs

See ratings table for output voltage and current ratings. Dual secondaries are bilfilar wound where possible for optimum coupling, and theoretically perfect balancing. Output Tolerance – Better than 3% at full load.

  • Load Regulation

See ratings table. Figures given are for 60 Hz operation, for 50 Hz operation figures increase slightly.

  • Mounting 

All units in this series are supplied with a potted center and an integral neoprene washer base. The potting compound is UL-HB approved, or better. Alternate mounting: supplied with steel cup disk, 2 neoprene washers, a bolt, nut and flat washer. See mechanical table for details.

  • Leads

Standard: Stranded tinned copper wire (CSA TEW, UL-1015, 105°C). Stripped 6 mm. Finished length: 350 mm. Optional: Magnet wire self lead, PVC sleeved .031” wall. Stripped 6mm. Finished length: 200 mm.

  • Thermal Protection

Optional: Normally closed thermal switch in series with primary, auto resetting , or a one shot thermal fuse. In series with primary for 60 Hz transformers. Separate lead outs for 50 Hz units, insulated stranded wire(yellow). Both open at 120°C core temperature. UL, CSA listed components.

  • Electrostatic Screen

Optional: To reduce capacitive coupling, and/or create a physical barrier, between primary and secondary. Copper foil laminated between polyester tape. Wound over primary. Terminated at one end by insulated stranded wire (green/yellow).

Magnetic Shielding


  • Optional:

To attenuate stray magnetic fields. Multiple layers of grain oriented silicon steel laminated between insulation. Wrapped around circumference of transformer. Increases OD by approx. 1mm.

  • Options

Options (Type A and type 5 primaries, screens, shields, solid wire leads, and thermal protection) are subject to a minimum order of ten units.
