    Don't hijack someone else's thread. Start a new thread next time.
    A mod will come along and move this one.

    As Mr. Chips said, a thread belongs to the OP (original poster). Trying to take over someone elses thread is called hijacking, which is not allowed at All About Circuits. I have therefore given you a thread of your very own.

    This was split from Power transformer questions

    You need to read the markings on the transformer and connect to the 220 VAC terminals. Leave the other terminals free.

    Check if certain terminals need to be connected, I believe there may be pairs that need to be in parallel one way for the high, series the low voltage.
