EASY HV GENERATOR FOR THE NEWBIES

  TWINFLYBACK MEETS ELECTRONIC TRANSFORMER....BZZZZZTTT
BACK TO PROJECTS PAGE
I had to build a HV high frequency generator for one of my friends, to make some electronography pics, so I got the easy way this time. A 240 watts electronic transformer (used for halogen lamps) and two identical flybacks (to increase the voltage output) make a very reliable HV unit. The output can be varied with a variac on the mains side. I am thinking that is the easiest way for a newbie (but well.....not very cheap) to get in the high voltage hobby, first time.
