Subject: NEON AND SHUNTS?
I posted an e-mail a while back on my 12kv-at-60ma neon that I unpotted and
modified. I stepped up the insulation around the primary and both of the
secondaries. I also removed some shunts. The tranny had 4 sets of 23
shunts, I removed 2 shunts from each set. That leaving 4 sets of 21
shunts. In my post I stated that when I run the tranny the primary
heats up. It gets hot but not so hot it burns when you touch it.
I am wondering if anyone might have an idea if this is going to be ok
and would also like to know what kind of current this thing might be
giving off now? I was told that it is probably just heating from the
extra current it pushing out, which makes sense because I noticed that
after a while the power cord began to heat up. I don't think it is
shorting at the primary because I had a problem once with a 15kv-at-30ma
neon that smoked within a minute because it was shorted.
ADVICE IS NEEDED, PLEASE
