Center-potted Mounting

Recommended for transformers or inductors that are:
  • More than 15 lbs / 7 kg in weight
  • In environments subject to rough handling
  • Low-profile products / critical height limitations

The center of the transformer or inductor is filled with epoxy potting, and a center hole is drilled through the potting for easy, one-screw mounting.

The potting can be recessed to hide a protruding screw head

If requested, threaded inserts can be installed and foam or rubber pads attached to the bottom of the unit.




Cylindrical Enclosure

The transformer or inductor is potted into a cylindrical enclosure.

Recommended for transformers and inductors that are:
  • Less than 15 lbs / 7 kg in weight
  • In a product that requires an attractive appearance
  • In rough environments, requiring mechanical protection



Flange Mount

If vertically mounted, transformers can be supplied with square mounting brackets to ensure secure installation.

Other options include terminal blocks or potting the bottom for extra stability.
