Hello there and welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I will be assisting you today. I am an engineer with over 30 years of electrical and electronic training, repair and installation experience. I will try and answer your question accurately and precisely so that we can get you on your way.

That is correct. H4 and X1 are your inputs.

H4 and H1 are your outputs.

Remember this is a buck boost transformer - you have a common conductor (the one on H4). The transformer either adds or subtracts a small amount of voltage - it doesn't work like a traditional transformer with completely separate input and output connections.

Please let me know if you need further help.
