3.2 Testing Line Frequency Transformer
Bobbin wound transformer ;Part Number 1797 - 12VA
This transformer is tested using a plug-in fixture.
Although this transformer uses only 9 terminals, the fixture has all 10
terminals connected so that the fixture can be used with any other
transformer designed on the same bobbin.
The fixture program describes the relationship between the terminal name
on the plug-in socket and the AT SERIES node that it has been wired to. It
allows the test program that is written for the transformer, and all test
results, to refer to the transformer terminal names.
