Most likely if you're looking at this you know exactly what it is.
if not, little background, this is a 20,000 volt neon sign bombarding Transformer used to burn excess gass out of neon sign tubes during the Manufacturing process.
if you are not in the neon sign business,
this will make the ultimate Tesla coil or Jacob's Ladder.
un-like smaller sign Transformers NST's.
there is no internal current limiting system.
the out put of the Transformer is controlled directly by the input, a slide choke (inductive ballast) Is wired in series with the input to limit the Supply current. thereby limiting the output of the Transformer.
if you do not limit the input current to the Transformer it would most likely be destroyed..
Essentially this is a scaled-down version of a utility pole Transformer (pole Pig).
This Transformer is potted in solid epoxy for high-voltage insulation and stability, it is designed for a very heavy duty cycle.
The Transformers is located in Northern California, about 40 miles from San Francisco, 60 from Sacramento. (East Bay)
I would seriously suggest local pickup, the unit weighs approximately 200 lb and would be difficult to ship. (you'll probably end up with more stuff than just this Transformer)
so far quotes just to have it palletized, are over $300+. I do not have a way move it.
so I cannot take it to a Freight/Shipping Depot.
The buyer would have to make ALL the arrangements for any kind of freight (from a residential address.)
