R.F. Transformer

For frequencies of 300 kHz to 600 kHz with an input of approximately 10,000 volts that requires a radio frequency transformer (generally referred to as an R.F. Current Transformer), see more details for further information on the Jackson R.F. Transformer.

The JACKSON R.F. Transformer is an air-core device designed without core material and is normally referred to as an R.F. Current Transformer.

The JACKSON R.F. Transformer is typically used in vacuum tube power supplies.

The input voltage to the JACKSON R.F. Transformer is usually 10,000 volts or higher.

The primary of the transformer is usually wound with round tubing while the secondary consists of a solid copper sheet wrapping and shielding the primary inside the secondary.

Generally, the primary winding is encapsulated in RTV material, which gives high dielectric strength and also protects it from the environment.

Great care is exercised in the construction and selection of material when designing and building the JACKSON R.F. Transformer and is constructed in a clean environment. The critical element in the design is to obtain the highest current transfer ratio between the primary to secondary l1 / l2. And K= √- (LL / LO).

Where LL= the leakage inductance referred to the primary

LO – the open circuit inductance of the transformer

The greatest current transfer occurs when L3/ L2= √1 – Kλ2

The kVA transfer is greater than L2 = L3

Available in Metric or Standard U.S. Threads.
