 +**Flux band** - a conductive loop, effectively a [[short-circuited turn]], wrapped closely around the outside of an [[electronic transformer]] to reduce the effect of the [[flux fringing|fringing]], [[leakage flux|leakage]] and [[stray flux]], which might cause [[electromagnetic interference]] to the surrounding devices and circuits.

 +Flux band around a [[ferrite]] [[transformer]]
 +The flux band couples electromagnetically to the stray flux, generates opposing currents and partially reduces [[radiated emission|radiated emissions]]. But because it is located on the outside of the returning [[limb|limbs]] of the magnetic core it does not impact on the main operation of the transformer. 
 +The flux band can be connected to ground or one of the windings (e.g. primary) to help in reduction of electrostatically coupled interference. 
 +The presence of a conductive flux band might compromise the [[creepage and clearance distance]]s, which are a safety related issue. Hence the correct dimensions must be designed to take those factors into account.
