* Note: Almost any magnetic component can be Grade 5 molded (sealed).  We use a wide selection of 2-part epoxy, RTV and/or other silicone materials.

 

Recent Work

  • Toroidal Water Cooled Transformer Assembly (EC Custom Model 210033)
    Customer design, assembled at Electronic Craftsmen. Used in an Induction Heating application. Multiple windings of 2625/44 Litz wire assembled onto 2 x 4.21"OD 3F3 Ferrite cores together with multiple sets of connection and water-cooling hardware assemblies. 4200Vdc hipot.
  • Power Step-Down Transformer Assembly with Wiring Harness and Integral Output Protection
    Value-added custom step-down transformer assembly for laboratory equipment. Transformer incorporates a multi-tapped input (100/120/200/220/230/240V) for international supply applications and dual SELV outputs, 22VA @ 50/60Hz. Includes wiring harness and output fuse protection circuitry mounted together with the transformer on a conversion coated aluminum bracket. RoHS compliant. Custom Model 206053.
  • High Voltage Transformer, 6000V @ 20kVA, 4-7kHz with Epoxy Encapsulated Windings for Corona Resistance
    This custom specialty transformer was designed for use in a system for ozone generation for water sanitizing. This transformer utilizes epoxy-encapsulated windings to provide additional protection against damage caused by partial discharge (corona). Encapsulation is performed under vacuum with the goal of replacing air with epoxy to provide a superior medium of insulation. Rated 600V input, 6kV output @ 4-7kHz. Insulation is Class F (180C). Copper foil and Litz wire windings on a gapped ferrite core. Model 211020.
  • Surge Arrestor
    Water Resistant, epoxy sealed within polycarbonate housing; provided with T-connector cable.
  • Submersible Transformer
    Water Tight Submersible Transformer. 277:120V, 60Hz, 750VA, 25lbs Fully encapsulated within custom aluminum housing, SOW leads (100lb pull test)
  • High Voltage Switching Transformer
    100KVA, 4-7KHz Epoxy Casted, Ferrite Core - for ozone generation
  • High Voltage Communications Transformer

    12KV Isolation between windings Epoxy Casted, Corona Inception <10pC @ 1800V

  • Rectifier Transformer Assembly
    280VA, 50/60Hz Open Style, 4 Slot Chassis Mount, Complete with Secondary Fusing, Faston Terminals
  • High Voltage Power Xfmr
    25VA, 60 Hz 19KV Isolation Between Windings, 4.1KV Primary Input Voltage, Epoxy Casted Primary
