These transformers do not have the recently mandated GFI shut down circuitry and therefore are excellent for scientific applications, tesla coils, enclosed jacob’s ladders, DC voltage multipliers, gas lasers, plasma power sources and many other specialty applications. We also supply diodes and capacitors for conversion to DC direct current.
The HV output terminals are found inside the casing, which are approximately 3/16" diameter posts with threaded end caps. Around all sides of the casing are 3/4" pre-cut holes, easily punched out to accept standard conduit fittings for running the output wires.
Transformers are easily parallel connected to double, triple, quadruple, etc., current for high power applications. However, parallel connection of these units for increasing current can cause a deadly electrocution hazard.
SPECIAL NOTE FOR TESLA COIL USERS: We have found that the higher voltage units with direct leads are less prone to breakdown than ones with the "beehive" insulators. It appears that breakdown occurs at the hole cut out for the insulator.

All purchases include our BTC3 Tesla coil plans and a secondary protection circuitry schematic when used for TESLA COILS as suggested by DC COX of RESONANCE RESEARCH.
