12-0-12 1A Center Tapped Step Down Transformer is a general purpose chassis mounting mains transformer. Transformer has 230V primary winding and center tapped secondary winding. The transformer has flying colored insulated connecting leads ( Approx 100 mm long ).
The Transformer act as step down transformer reducing AC - 230V to AC - 12V. The Transformer gives outputs of 12V, 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.
