Transformer manufacturers such as RBaker Ltd are leading the way with their innovative designs and reinvestment back into research for different industry areas.

Although more commonly associated with the National Grid they play an important part in making smaller technology work too.

 

Ultimately if you electronics project or your TV were not able to receive the correct voltage then nothing would work properly.
