We should congratulate Aaron also, from whom the recipe for a dual-MOT ballast originated week on hvlist (actually, Carl did mention that below, but I thought I should point it out again for posterity's sake :))


Anyway, thanks to both Carl and Aaron for giving me something to do tonight :D I just tried this with two *similar* MOTs, having the same rated voltage and power capacity, and it appeared to work out ok for a relatively small load (about 3A). Unfortunately, I'm an NST coiler and hadn't done anything with these MOTs until tonight, so I'm struggling to find a larger load to play with! Where's a third MOT when you need one?! Time to go to eBay, methinks...

Safe TC'ing,

   How about an electric iron or heater as a test load?
