Toroid power transformer question

Postby KC3OL » Fri Feb 28, 2003 6:45 pm

Can I use a steel bolt through the middle of my toroid power transformer to secure it to the chassis or is it necessary to use a plastic or nylon bolt?

Toroids and Bolts

As long as the bolt doesn't form part of a shorted turn you should be OK. (ie dont use a U-bolt or strap around the core to hold it to the chassis.- I've seen it done! )
Smaller toroids come with a single bolt and a dished plate to hold them to the chassis.
