Ring Cores

ring core examples

Ring cores made of thermally stable supermalloy and wound with 1000 turns are excellent transformers. Originally developed for ground fault detection current, they are now used in many current-sensing applications. In a GFCI circuit breaker or electrical outlet, these cores constantly monitor electrical current and protect against injury or death caused by contact with damaged or defective electrical equipment. In the ALCI plug, the cores are used to protect people from electrical shock by hairdryers or other appliances. (They can have many uses in other applications).
