    Hey everyone, I'm messing around the some ultrasonic transducers, I have a few 40Khz, 28Khz..... But I only have a 40Khz 110v driver.

    Was wonder if anyone can tell me if this drive could be modified for different frequencies? It would be best if I could modify it so that I can adjust the frequency on a the fly. Any ides?

    If the inductor is part of the frequency-determining network then changing that would alter the frequency.

    The output transformer is usually 'tuned' to the transducer (resonance) as the drive voltage is considerably higher than the supply voltage and, as a result, you can't use them at different frequencies.

    The datasheet of the ultrasonic transducer will show a graph of its very narrow range of frequencies. Maybe 38kHz to 42kHz.

    I have few transducers those aren't the issue, but I only have one driver. I know which frequency transducers I have, I just didn't want to buy more drivers if I can make this one adjustable
