Re: ScanTesla Version 7.50

Hi Terry,

Your program is amazing. I had to change the lines that referenced <conio.h> calls, but that was trivial to get it compiled on Apple "OS X" (An O/S very much superior to windows.) I also use an emulator to run Win98 so I can use ExpressPCB on my Apple.

Thanks again,

Karl L.

I realize that "I" might be the only one that uses ScanTesla :o))

But for this year, I fixed all the obnoxious bugs I knew about and rewrote the instructions. The latest is here:


There is a bigger file here that has a bunch of history,examples, and stuff. But the little small file has all the real meat:


The program can iterate through Tesla coil configurations very fast and search for the most optimal component values. It can also generate raw data for pretty graphs and such. It is sort of like MicroSim on steroids ;-))

It is sort of a "programmer's" program since it is raw and powerful.
No pretty GUI or anything :-p But if you need to really crunch Tesla coil numbers and models hard, it is just the ticket ;-)))
