RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while tying up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...

flyback transfomer - RF Cafe Forums

RF Cafe Forums closed its virtual doors in 2012 mainly due to other social media platforms dominating public commenting venues. RF Cafe Forums began sometime around August of 2003 and was quite well-attended for many years. By 2010, Facebook and Twitter were overwhelmingly dominating online personal interaction, and RF Cafe Forums activity dropped off precipitously. If the folks at phpBB would release a version with integrated sign-in from the major social media platforms, I would resurrect the RF Cafe Forums, but until then it is probably not worth the effort. Regardless, there are still lots of great posts in the archive that ware worth looking at.

Below are the old forum threads, including responses to the original posts.

hello, could anybody tell me how to figure out the primary input pin(with approximate 1ohm coil inductance? how to find the polarity for 2 input pins as well..)and the secondary high voltage and ground pin for flyback transformer.. thanks

Hi!

I assume you mean flyback transformer as used in a TV or computer monitor, not the kind of transformer used for (relatively) low-power switching power supplies. If I'm wrong, please correct!

There are several varieties of flyback transformer on the market. One kind has a terminal common to the primary and secondary, the other does not.

Often, the output is a separate socket or lead, with high voltage insulation - but not always.

To muddy the waters even further, many modern flybacks are actually integrated power supplies - commonly a voltage doubler or tripler is built in to the flyback itself.

So you need to be a bit more specific about what you need to know, and where you're starting from!

Good Luck,
Fred
