Requirement for a Direct Current Power Supply
Low Voltage (LV) Transformers
Applies to all Transformers by SquareD/Schneider Electric
Transformers cannot process Direct Current
No. Transformers operate on the principle of alternating magnetic fields affecting coils and laminated steel cores. As DC does not alternate, it cannot be ``transformed``, hence there is no such thing as a ``DC Transformer``. Non- Transformer DC power supplies are available on page 23-37 of Digest 176.
