HV section question

Postby ealbers » Sat Apr 15, 2017 11:30 am

I've looked at the high voltage schematic, can you please outline exactly how it creates high voltage?
I see the 555 timer, and a single coil, how does this get up to several hundred volts??
Thanks!

The HV circuit is based on an article that appeared in Nuts and Volts here: http://www.nutsvolts.com/magazine/artic ... eiger-unit
There is a good description of how it works in that article, check it out!
