How to use a SCR in a Coil Gun? Answered

I want to increase the power of my capacitor but i can not figure out how to add a SCR. So i was wondering if somebody can show me how.


The scr will just act as the firing mechanism -- dumping the power of your capacitors through a coil.

If you want more oomph, you need a bigger coil and/or bigger capacitor bank.

+1 and or a bigger (higher current) SCR!

true! -- bigger scr = higher current = dump to coil faster. There's a lot to be said for raw unadulterated power at the source :)
