Xenon trigger transformers.

  1. I notice that Maplin (in the UK) have changed the type of xenon tube
    trigger transformer from the older pink coloured waxy ones to a much
    smaller bobbin version with green tape round it. Has anyone got any
    experience with the reliability of the smaller type in heavy use? I use
    these transformers in one of my designs and am concerned about switching
    to a different component without a long test period to ascertain their

    Ideally I would prefer the little black resin potted box type, but I
    can't find a source for these in the UK.

    Any suggestions?

    You would be better to use a traceable manufacturers part - will Maplin not
    say who manufactures it?
    Have a look at the Perkin Elmer, Siemens, and other Xenon flashtube
    manufacturers - they generally have trigger coils in their portfolios.
