RSD High Power Step-Down Transformer
The RSD is an auto-transformer designed to handle the high powers produced using RITEC gated amplifiers. It is useful when using low-impedance loads such as electromagnetic acoustic transducers (EMATS). The voltage step-down ratio is selected as 2:1 or 3:1 (impedance ratio 4:1 or 9:1). A monitor output is provided to examine the output without damaging the oscilloscope input. The factory should be consulted to establish the desired frequency range.
