Can someone tell me more about this transformer? Answered
Recently, I got a large high voltage transformer. It used to be part of a photocopier, and lets out 1/4 sparks when you brush the primaries on a 9 volt battery. However, I don't really know how to build a driver for it. Can someone help me out?
Here is what I know about it:
It has 7 (8 if you count the one connected to the core) leads. 5 of them are for the primary and secondary coils, but I don't know what the other 2 do.
The resistance between the two primary leads is 1.8 ohms (1 when connected to the center tap).
The high voltage output lead has a 30,000 VDC rating printed on it.
Can someone help me build a driver for this?
Edit: I have a little florescent tube driver that runs on 12VDC. Can I use this to power the transformer, or is that an idiotic idea?
