What is an Isolation Transformer?

What is an isolation transformer

Electrical isolation is required to protect people, circuits and equipment from shocks. Isolation, also referred to as galvanic isolation, means no direct conduction path exists for the current to flow therefore no physical connection between the circuits. Isolation can be accomplished using electromagnetic, capacitive, or optical devices. Isolation transformers provide galvanic isolation and are used to protect against electric shock. Transformers can be used to suppress electrical noise in sensitive devices. Furthermore, a transformer can be used to transfer power between two circuits which must not be connected.

Isolation Transformers that have a ratio of 1:1 between the primary and secondary windings are often used to protect secondary circuits. However, this method can also be used to protect individuals from electrical shocks between energised conductors and earth ground.
