 Isn't this step-up transformer also acting as an isolation transformer,
isolating the secondary from ground? I thought that meant that you
didn't not need a ground because secondary of the transformer has
no relationship to ground. I'd like to find out because I use one with
my Mitsubishi MoveMaster robot.
