        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.

        Jianghai caps are Chinese. But they have a cooperation/licence with Hitachi AIC.

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