Regulating a Spark
I need to build a unit capable of supplying a timed spark. At approx 1 sec intervals.
The unit will need to be small/cheap to build and be able to supply current as to generate a timed spark across two electrodes via 240v power supply.
The unit I am attempting to build is a flammable gas warning/ignition device.
The purpose of it is to ignite the first immediate gas detected, as to avoid a larger detination later.
The unit will be made of machined aluminum.
It will consist of a vapour detector hooked to a fan unit, which inturn vents the gas to the ignition device. Thus igniting the gas.
At the moment I am working on the ignition system, hence the question.
Thanks for any help.
