I was wondering about these transformers. It says it requires a DC input (I think) however don't transformers need an AC input, and if so does that mean I would need to make an oscillator circuit to pulse the DC? Or can I just input AC?
5VDC is just a misprint in the catalogue. Lower down it says:
- Primary Voltages: 1 x 13V
- Secondary Voltages: 1 x 1.34kV
So you should give it 12-13V AC, preferably as a sine wave, and will get just over a kilovolt on the far side. Take care to keep the two secondary outputs well away from one another and well insulated.
