Re: [TCML] Load Sensing Transformer

Hi All,

A "Load Sensing" neon transformer is something fairly  new, and is designed
to output a constant current over a wider range of  voltages. It was meant
to replace a number of different sized transformers  in order to reduce the
inventory in the shop or on the truck. Think of it as a  "one size fits all"
transformer, replacing transformers from 2 to 12 kV. The  down side to that
is if you only need a 2 kv NST, you pay for a 12kV NST. They  are actually
electronic power supplies and probably unsuitable for coiling, but  go ahead
and try it.

Nor have I. The term "load  sensing" almost sounds like some kind of
transformer used to check bonding?  If that is the case, then who knows.
I've never tried such a device for  powering a coil. Bonding transformers
are generally 0-12mA and adjustable  from 0-5000V. But if there are units
capable of 12kV at 35mA, then it might  be possible (assuming the current
sense is defeated).

Any more info  on the tranny?

Take care,
