Re: Microwave Oven Transformers (MOTs)

MOTs are desighned to limit fast shorts momentarily.  They will limit the
line draw to about 30 amps.  NSTs are desighned to run current limited all
the time.  So MOTs do have current limiting but we need more current
limiting for TC use than they are built with.
