Using an Isolation Type Stepdown Transformer to Control the Power to Molydisilicide Heating Elements

Deltech not only uses a phase angle fired SCR power controller but also uses an isolation type stepdown transformer to control the power supplied to molydisilicide heating elements (Figure 1).

However, the former instrument is sufficient to control the amps and volts needed to fire the load, and the stepdown transformer presents an additional expense.
