Company Hammond Manufacturing is probably familiar to you in context with high quality aluminium and plastic enclosures. But Hammond Manufacturing also produces a wide range of audio transformers, chokes and lamp transformers.
Audio transformers are mainly known to those, who work with professional sound equipment, microphones and high-end lamp amplifiers. A main function of transformers in audio devices is above all impedance matching. Various audio signal sources, like for example microphones, have an impedance different from impedance required for further signal transmission. Naturally, without impedance conversion, a direct connection into a transmission chain would cause a significant change of signal level, moreover frequency dependent, lower resistance to interference, or an overload of an end stage (at a lamp amplifier). At the same time transformers provide a galvanic disjunction, thus their usage is often convenient also from safety reasons.
Advantages / Features:
- top quality
- balanced frequency response
- low insertion loss
Hammond Manufacturing has long-term experience with a development and production of audio transformers. In a production portfolio we can find various series, from simple ones up to top wideband series, like for example the 850A series with a frequency response +/- 0.5 dB from 20 Hz to 20 KHz. Another group of components consist of lamp transformers. Here we can find output transformers, supply transformers, chokes, but even drivers and also many construction components.
