What is this weird transformer? Answered
I opened up a microwave hoping for a microwave transformer. But instead i got this weird looking one. i was hoping someone may be able to identify it and tell me if i could use it for a tesla coil. also, there was no capacitor??!! the largest caps i could find were those three red ones in the pics. it apeared to have litz wire on the outside and normal wire wind on the inside. Numbers in it were - 97INV (im not sure if its a 1 or i) and F69144TOAP and finaly F607C.
ive now taken it apart, see picture. so, im guessing the litz wire was the primary (240v) and the solid wire is secondry (around 2kv). the secondry contained one really long winding and then another winding which only went around once (like in a normal mot). It looks like some sort of high current flyback. also, the secondary is also some kind of litz wire. It has many smaller hair thin enameled wires woven into a single strand. My guess it this thing operates at really high frequencies
