Re: Danger, and now I understand why.


Thankyou to all who replied to my post about the neon which was
storing energy.  I think Malcolm and Antonio hit the nail squarely
on the head with the energy stored in the secondary winding idea.

Of course I knew energy could be stored in a ballast inductor but
never thought about energy being stored in the secondary itself.
I will be very careful now I understand what is going on,  I am
just glad I didn't get bitten after looking at Terry's stored
energy calculations !   (13.4 Joules,  Ouch !)
