VT1510-12 Neon Sign Transformer Kit
We are selling the replacement Neon Sign Transformer (NTS) that
Don Smith used in several of his models
along with some instructions on how to do a few experiments with it. The product (VT1510-12 by Ventex) is shown in the top portion of the picture above, while the bottom picture shows the original Bertonee NPS-112D5. This is the only original Bertonee NST available from Ventex that doesn't have the ground fault protection in it (which is a problem for doing experiments with spark gaps). You can use this product according to the manufacturers recommendations or experiment at your own risk if you are a qualified technician. Such qualified experimenters can use this to learn about charging by induction from air and earth groundings where this NST acts as trigger to move such charges from such grounding to increasingly larger isolated conductive or capacitive objects. This kit is an option for the new
Resonance Induction Coupler Kit 2
which focuses on this teaching.
: 1 VT1510-12 Neon Sign Transformer and information about several experiments using it.
