A cold cathode transformer is similar to a NST, in that it is current
limiting. The difference is that the current output is higher, usually
120 mA or more. They are quite expensive and used ones are harder to
come by than NSTs. Spending $50 a piece for 3 12kV 30 mA used NSTs
would be more cost effective than buying a cold cathode transformer.
Hope this helps.
> OK, now I'm clear on bombarders, but what is a cold cathode transformer? I've seen on-line ads for them from outfits like France and Transco, but no explanation as to what they're good for.
Have a good day!
