    Can noone help me further? The unit seems to be an ac/dc rectifier to about 50 v output. I alos read somewhere that it should generate impulses not continous current.

    I'm sure someone can help, but I suspect no one knows off the top of their heads... And since we all do this for free in our spare time, doing homework and legwork to make a design doesn't usually play into a free offering...

    If I find some time this weekend I will try to remember to look into this further, but no promises as my days can take a 180 degree turn in a moment...

    Hello ppl again,

    Sorry to bother once again, but what I could get until now is that the source is working at 50-60 V DC and smthing about 160-500 W of power, i think that it also needs an capacitator to deliver pulsed current, but im not sure.
