The transformer tap switch of a resistance welding transformer is installed on the windings of the primary side of the transformer. By changing the tap switch one is changing the turns ratio of the transformer. When the turns ratio changes it will change the voltage in the secondary coil. Tap 1 will produce the lowest secondary voltage and the highest tap will produce the highest secondary voltage and potentially the maximum KVA rating of the transformer.
