What is a Step Down Transformer?
Devices that are used to step down electrical current at input power sources, which allows voltage to be compatible with equipment.


Voltage Transformers
Transformers that are designed for specific applications that need specified electrical voltage. 


Step Up Transformers
A transformer that has the secondary winding higher than the primary allowing the transformer to increase input voltage.


Power Transformers
Devices that convert the incoming line voltage to a higher or lower electrical current to match voltage of equipment.


Three Phase Transformers
Transformers that are used throughout industry to change values of three phase voltage and current.


Isolation Transformers
Transformers that transfer energy from the alternating current supply to an electrical load.  They prevent certain types of harmonics.

  Buck Boost Transformers
Buck Boost devices are used to make small adjustments to incoming voltages such as lighting applications.
  Phase Converters
Devices that convert single phase power into three phase power.
  Acme Transformers
Acme Transformers is an industrial leader offering superior service, quality products and technical service.

Welcome to the Step Down Transformers Website.  This informative and easy to navigate site is designed to give you knowledgeable information on step down transformers.  There will be helpful articles on other types of transformers giving you an understanding of the different functions and sizes of these devices.  Also, you will read about some of the leading manufacturers of step down transformers such as Acme and TEMCo, which will introduce you to experienced and professional companies that can help you in your selection of a high-quality, reliable step down transformer. 

Step down transformers are simple, but very much needed devices.  Their basic principal of transforming voltage has not changed much over the last 100 years.  However, the materials and designs of step down transformers continue to change with updated state-of-the-art technology.  To learn more about high-quality transformers, you can go to TEMCo Step Down Transformer's  website.

Transformers are electrical devices that transform voltage through magnetic couplings, and they have no moving parts.  There is a magnetic core with one winding of wire placed close to one or more windings, which can couple two or more alternating-current circuits together by employing the induction between the windings.  The primary winding is connected to the power source and the other windings are known as secondary windings.  If the secondary voltage wire is less than the primary wire, the transformer is called a step down transformer.  If the secondary wiring is of higher voltage, the transformer is a step-up transformer, which increases voltage input. 

Step down transformers can step down incoming voltage, which enables you to have the correct voltage input for your electrical needs.  For example, if your equipment has been specified for input voltage of 110 volts, and the main power supply is 220 volts, you will need a step down transformer, which decreases the incoming electrical voltage to be compatible with your 110 volt equipment.

Step down transformers come in sizes of a thumb nail to huge sized units for power transmissions or national power grids.  No matter what their size, they all operate with the same basic principles.  They can transform voltage for any application requirement, from running a hair dryer to running large power grids used across the country.

In most situations, power that travels over power lines is at a higher voltage due to the fact that there are power losses in route to their destinations.  When the power reaches its destination, the power level can be stepped down.  Thus, if power voltage comes through power lines at a higher voltage current than needed, step down transformers will decrease the voltage input allowing equipment to run with a power source that is the same voltage.

Always remember, when purchasing a step down transformer, seek out a more reputable and experienced manufacturer such as  Acme Step Down Transformers . A quality manufacturer will save you money in the long run and will provide you many years of quality service.
