Re: X-Ray Transformer - 50kV - FOR SALE

My bet would be that Ben is correct but only managed to get one
transformer.  I have a pair of similar units made by the Picker Corp.
The units each have a diode and capacitor inside, one made +50KV with
respect to the case (Ground) the other -50KV, used together....
