Default toroids on top of each other ?

Can I put two toroid power transformers on top of each other ? I think that I saw somewhere on the internet that someone did this without problems (?)

Zou niet weten waarom niet Jaap, heb het zelf vaak gedaan. Wel een rubbertje ertussen voor de beschadigingen (dwz het voorkomen daarvan).

OK, let me see if I can puzzle it out without a translator. Something like, "You don't have to worry, Jaap, I've done this myself. Stick a piece of rubber between them before installing them." How close did I get?

SY's get very good at saying boe, isn't he?

Well done, SY...you got the general idea.

Oh, BTW...since you're a moderator I think Jaap started a new thread entitled "Thanks" that I suppose needs to be appended to this one.

Knor zegt het varken....

Cheers,

SY,

Not perfect, but close enough for government work. Of course, Dutch isn't THAT difficult. We have over a million of 5 year olds speaking it easily.

"A piece of rubber will prevent damage"?

Is that closer?

Those Dutch have a different word for everything!

Miaow zegt de poes.

(PS my current avatar IS Dutch after all... or was, anyway)

Yeah,

the only thing with toroids is that you have to watch out that the upper metal mounting plate is not touching any other metal part of the chassis, because ( translating this should be easy ) dat creeert een nieuwe winding .
This acts as a short.

Stacking is no problemo.


It's indeed very sad that Pim.......
