Using Transformers for Electrical Isolation in Medical Devices

Toroidal transformers are ideal for electrical isolation in medical equipment because they are compact, can be completely encapsulated when necessary, and have low stray fields, making them less likely to cause electromagnetic disturbances. Isolation means physically and electrically separating two parts of a circuit that may interact. The isolation is achieved by using electromagnetic field...
