Re: M.O.T. CURRENT
Sounds interesting, I have 4 mots too. I'd be interested to know how you
joined them together. I am limiting the power of mine to 1000VA (well
roughly), 6000VA sounds a bit too dangerous for me :-). I get a fuzzy noise
when the output is open circuit, someone suggested to me that the insulation
might be about to breakdown. How do yours sound. I haven't used mine with a
coil properly yet.
