24V-0V-24V 1Amp Step-Down Transformer is a general-purpose chassis mounting mains transformer. The transformer has 230V primary winding and non-centre tapped secondary winding. The transformer has flying coloured insulated connecting leads ( Approx 100 mm long ). The Transformer act as a step-down transformer reducing AC – 230V to AC – 24V.
The Transformer gives outputs of 24V and 0V. The Transformer’s construction is written below with details of Solid Core and Winding.
The transformer is a static electrical device that transfers energy by inductive coupling between its winding circuits. A varying current in the primary winding creates a varying magnetic flux in the transformer’s core and thus a varying magnetic flux through the secondary winding. This varying magnetic flux induces a varying electromotive force (E.M.F) or voltage in the secondary winding. The transformer has cores made of high permeability silicon steel. The steel has a permeability many times that of free space and the core thus serving to greatly reduce the magnetizing current and confine the flux to a path that closely couples the winding.

Unlike a lot of the common transformers in the market, this seems to have been designed well. No overheating, has the correct voltage output and the overall build quality is good.
They’ve also painted (maybe it’s ro primer) the edges to prevent rusting.
It’s a bit more pricier than the ones from the market for sure but I think it’s worth the additional cost for the quality.
