Here’s an interesting project for a boring weekend: a ” DIY Hand Drawn Electrical Arc“. See it in action after the jump.
Picture tubes in televisions and monitors need tensions of several thousand V for the acceleration of the electrons. For the production of this high voltage the Zeilentrafo is responsible. The Zeilentrafo mostly is on the motherboard. CAUTION! The picture tube contains a high vacuum and can with wrong treatment implode! The fragments meet in the center and fly across the area
