Where can I find data on spark gap distance for copper tube spark gap, also number of tubes for given size Tesla coil?I just wasted an hour searching the net and found nothing.
I use this: http://www.coe.ufrj.br/~acmq/tesla/mres4gap.jpgThe tubes can be rotated to adjust the distance. The breakdown voltage in this case is around 2 kV/mm for each gap. A blower is used to keep the
gap cool, otherwise the plastic base (not a great idea) melts. Antonio Carlos M. de Queiroz _______________________________________________ Tesla mailing list Tesla@xxxxxxxxxx http://www.pupman.com/mailman/listinfo/tesla
