        That winding around the transformer is for EMI-compliance, it is the shielding of the core. I have never seen this kind of wire, ususally copper foil is used (e.g. in ATX PSUs). Maybe they “did the homework” in this case. Dave, as I remember, you did a teardown where this kind of pulse-transformers had nice shielding. I have found this in the teardown of the Marconi RF Gen. http://www.eevblog.com/2012/03/22/eevblog-261-marconi-2023-rf-signal-generator-teardown/

        • Yeah, has to be it, and yes they must have done their homework that it was adequate enough to save the cost.

        So in order to reduce EMI, it common to place a capacitor between between the main ac side and the isolated 2nd side?
