Most of us don’t realize, transformers are everywhere. We use transformers in our daily lives, and without them, we wouldn’t be able to travel, charge electronics, or use the power in our homes. At Advanced Components Industries Inc., we take pride in creating high quality custom transformers. We have fast delivery and friendly customer service that will help you receive your transformers fast and with no hassle. Take a look at our most frequently asked questions below! We hope to inform all of our customers with the information they need to successfully complete their projects.

WHAT IS A TRANSFORMER? 2017-07-10T18:36:16+00:00

A transformer is a device that transfers electrical energy from one circuit to another through inductively coupled conductors. It is made by winding two wires around an iron core. One wire is connected to the primary and the other to the secondary.

HOW MANY MODELS DO YOU HAVE IN YOUR CATALOG? 2017-07-10T18:37:07+00:00

We have over 50 models in our catalog. All of our models come from Spitznagel GmbH, the leading manufacturer of small transformers in Germany. You can modify the primary and secondary voltages, dual load mA, no load voltage, and power rating to create the most effective transformer for your next project.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN ENCAPSULATED AND NON ENCAPSULATED TRANSFORMERS? 2017-07-10T18:37:26+00:00

Encapsulated transformers are sealed and enclosed under a vacuum tight seal. This will keep out moisture and other elements that can damage performance. Non Encapsulated transformers are not sealed under casings.

WHAT IS THE BENEFIT OF USING A SMALLER STEP-DOWN TRANSFORMER LIKE THE SPK SERIES? 2017-07-10T18:37:38+00:00

A step down transformer is a component where the secondary voltage is lower than its primary voltage. These components are used to convert higher voltages into lower voltages.
