#8 FAQ - Neon transformers - the facts

Post by Richard Hull » Tue Sep 22, 2015 8:57 pm

I now include an attached old paper I wrote for the Electric Spacecraft Journal back in 2002. It speaks to the current and voltage limits imposed on old current shunted neon sign transformers. I did a small bit of investigative research on the issue.

The .doc format is getting pretty antiquated... we might want to look at our resources and convert things to PDF.

You don't need any special software... most programs these days have a "save to pdf" function in their print menus.

I printed it to PDF and attached it to this post.
