Re: [TCML] Pig upgrade
If you have only 120Vac @ 15A available to run your coil, then the
piggie is going to be a waste of time, money, and efforts. IF you have
the option of getting a power source of 240Vac @ 50A+ later on and a
place to store the piggie now, then get the piggie.
At 120Vac, the output on the piggie would be roughly 7KV, you also would
need to obtain a ballast and upgrade all your caps and wiring too.
At this time with your limited power source, it would be like putting a
Cox .049 engine into an Abrahms M-80 tank to make it go... :)

I was recently offered a 50kva ABB pig in good condition. I am
currently using a 15/30 nst to drive my coil. I only have 120v 15a
power to use and I am limited by space. Does anyone think that a coil
built with the pig on this supply would have tremendous advantages
over the nst coil? Or would it be a waste at this low current?
