One last question for anyone who might know about these 70kv / 100kv transformers from x-ray units.. This 70kv unit I have here; does this thing actually put out 70kv, or is that the rating after the diode rectifier?? I have no way of directly measuring these insanely high voltages, but with 60vac measured directly across the primary connections (using a resistive ballast) I can draw an arc about three inches long. Theoretically, that would be approximately 35kv (assuming 120vac gives the full 70kv) - and assuming of course the physical winding ratio is really 583:1!! Are these things really capable of 70kv (or 100kv)? Does there exist a xfrmr that really put out 100kv?? I seem to be getting mixed messages on the internet about this. Thanks again! -Wes.
