yes the voltage is 220v.

can you give me more info on teh inductive balast you built. this
could be a solution to my problem. so far i have 2 transformers, one
600w at
2000v and the other 1200w at 2000v. if i put in two more (i don't 
know the voltage because i havent got them yet) your
coil might limit the current and give the 8000+ volts i need.
ow did you build it ? a large coil in series to the 220v ?
