A type of electrical transformer used to connect an unbalanced circuit to a balanced one.
- Also included are three lengths of shrink tubing to enclose the balun and hold it in place on the cable.
- In a simple dipole, the balun assures that the dipole, and not the feed line, is doing the radiating!
- All baluns, even transmission line baluns, will have significant flux in the core with real-world loads.
From bal(ance to) un(balance transformer).
