Guide To Buying The Right Transformer - Miracle Electronics With all of us being so highly dependent on electronics, may it be for individual residential or personal purposes, or for commercial and industrial applications, the need for transformers is soaring high! Electrical transformers are required to transformer power from one voltage system to another through electromagnetic induction. Basically made up of two most important components – the core that creates the magnetic field, and the coil wound around the core that drives the electric current – transformers are significantly essential in bringing the right amount of power and current within any system and application. But, when you decide on buying power transformers in Germany, or having them personally designed, you need consider a few important factors.

First and foremost, you need to consider the voltage level. The voltage level is one of the top concerns to be measured when deciding upon purchasing a transformer. The capacity, measured in volt-amps, should be carefully measured to avoid overloading the system with too much power. Every application determines the type and voltage of transformer to be appropriately used. Thus, you must be aware of the typical load that the application requires, along with the spike that may damage it. All of these considerations will affect your buying decision.

Once you know the voltage level that is required, it will be easier for you to determine the right transformer. For this, you need to first calculate the load for either a single of three phase installation by multiplying the volts and amps, and dividing it by 1000. As a formula, Kilovolt ampere (KVA) = (Volts x Amps)/1000. The transformer’s KVA should be equal to or greater than the load value.


After figuring out the amount of supply voltage or available line voltage required, you can determine the voltage and frequency required for the load.

Also, check if the equipment requires an auto transformer, or if it needs to be separated from the supply. If you want fusing for a control transformer, you will need a terminal block model.

Where is the transformer to be installed? The location and the environment in which the transformer needs to be installed should be carefully considered. Some transformers are designed to withstand all kinds of environmental outdoor conditions, while others may be designed strictly for indoor use only. If your application requires a unique design that is either not available in the market, or not practical to purchase from a ready-to-buy line, you can opt for going the custom route. You can have your transformer neatly and efficiently customized with endless possibilities for specific transformer applications, provided you have the right manufacturer to partner with. Miracle Electronics, while providing the best quality ready-to-use power transformers in Germany, also undertakes requests for custom design and development of transformers. Whatever you choose, you can rest assured that transformers manufactured here are RoHS and REACH compliant, and are also available with CE and UL marks on request. So, always keep it safe with Miracle Electronics’ transformers.
