Jonny — Lidmotor Exciter.ASF
This is Jonny Davro’s “Pan Exciter” revisited and updated. I added a couple of parts and eliminated the original aluminum pan feedback setup. I was able to do that by pulling a feedback signal off of the high voltage trigger coil. A simple loop of wire around the coil did the trick. The circuit self resonates and does not have to be tuned. I show the circuit running on one AA battery here and lighting up 12 led in series. The amp draw is about 30 mA.
