What to do with metal halide light transformer 24kv? Answered

What should I do with my metal halide transformer that takes in 12 v puts out 24 kv?


Not being able to reply happens sometimes.

OK that will kill.

4ma across the heart will stop the heart.

At 24 KV glass or porcelain is the only insulation you can trust.

So handle with care.

This furnace ignition is 10 KV 23 ma and I have been shocked by it with gloves insulated tools and shock safety certified shoes.



What wattage are those transformers of yours?

You can make a Tesla Coil, a Jacobs Ladder, a Plasma Globe, even a Rail Gun if you want.

Personally I would make a Musical Tesla Coil.
