Re: handy controller for small coils...

Original poster: Vardan <vardan01@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>


You might consider a light dimmer control. They are light weight and cheap. Sometimes they burn up and short full on so have a second switch and be sure it is ok if the coil suddenly gets full power. You could just use a "switch" too. I think the dimmers for ceiling fans (inductive load) might last longer.

Maybe someone with more knowledge here will know?

I have several small spark gap coils sitting around.
None exceed 600 watts so...   I, with your help, would
like to design a controller for these small coils.  I
just don't see the purpose of hauling around a variak
theat weighs more than the coil itself.

Mainly, I need an idea to get started "yea, I know
that's the toughest part"

Thanks in advance for your help
