What is the difference between the hv transformer in a TV and the hv transformer in a microwave? Answered


The flyback transformer in a TV puts out about 20kv at a low (5 ma?) current and is driven by perhaps 15000 cycle input. The microwave transformer is 60 cycle and puts out about 2000 VAC at about one half amp. So... very different.

A tv transformer is a flyback. A microwave transformer is regular one.

And I suppose that you haven't that slightest clue as to what that means.

A flyback transformer puts out up to 30Kv . A neon sign transformer or NST puts out up to 15Kv .A X-ray transformer put out up to 100KvAnd an microwave transformer puts out 2Kv with ABOUT 2 amps
