Thread: Toroid transformer no ouput
Ok I'm sorry I made a mistake, the low resistance of the primary side was coming from my body --', so here are the measurements using a ohmmeter set to 1k ohms:
primary: no resistance
black+red = high resistance
orange+yello = high resistance
black+yellow = no resistance
red+orange = no resistance
That fuse you are talking about, is it possible to replace it as mentioned by @uli12us ?

What do you mean by "no resistance" and "high resistance" ? I would expect to see less than 10 ohms between the Blue and Brown on the primary. I would also expect to see less than 3 ohms between the Red and Black as well as the Yellow and Orange. Can you let us know the actual values you are seeing.
eurikain Follow Graeme instructions to the letter one step at a time. The fuse he was talking about would be the one you have installed not the one inside the transformer (if that has gone send it back under guarantee) .
I will butt out now as too many cooks spoil the broth and I am sure Graeme knows what he is doing...Clive
The meter sends 1000 ohms, so if the measured resistance is supposed to be 3 ohms, it is nearly impossible to see the indicator move. But fr the "high" voltage, I see it easily as the indicator goes to the maximum value. Do you understand what I mean ?

Alright, just got the digital meter. Here is what I measured:
Primary 230V: 0 ohm resistance
red+black = stable 5 ohms, peeks at 20-40 ohms (probably due the the meter ?)
orange+yellow = stable 5 ohms, peeks at 10-30 ohms (again, most likely due to the meter)
red+orange = 0 ohms
black + yellow = 0 ohms
I had not set up a fuse for the transformer. I only have fuses between the drives and the screw terminals.

So you will have to send the transformer back.

Yes it does have such a position :) Let me check :))
Touching the meter pins together creates beeeeeeep.
red+black = beep
yellow+orange = beep
red+orange | red+yellow | black+yellow | black+orange = no beep
:'( Oh well.. I will call rapidonline tomorrow morning, see what we can do.
Where am I supposed to put that fuse you are talking about ? Can you show a wiring diagram ? How many amps does it need to be ?
