Transformers, Isolation

Definition : Transformers designed to isolate the secondary winding from the primary winding in such a way that neither of the secondary terminals is grounded. Typically the ratio of primary to secondary windings is one to one, so the voltage in the secondary winding is the same as the input voltage of the primary. Isolation transformers are used to reduce the leakage currents of a particular device to levels low enough (e.g., less than or equal to 500 microampere) to meet the upper limits of electrical safety standards. These transformers may be included as an integral part of electric and electronic medical equipment or provided as accessory devices.
