Re: TC powered by LV Marx generator?

Many are here:
The SIDAC (I have no idea what that stands for) is a solid state device
that holds off voltage until a certain voltage level is reached. It then
acts as a short until the current drops to zero just like a spark gap.
It can take a lot of power for a short time but cannot dissipate giant
amounts of heat without failure. A data sheet is here:

Does this list have a conversion chart somewhere that I could download?
With all the letter abbreviations, I just delete most of these messages as
they mean nothing to me.
I think I could follow half of the messages if I just knew what "SIDACS" (or
each message uses) meant.
