First shot with 4000 joule capacitor bank!

Today I put the last parts together on small project with a large impact. A 4000 joule capacitor bank able of delivering destructive short circuit currents in the thousands.

The first test was only done at 1kj to ensure that everything works and I will then slowly step up the energy charge with further experiments where measurements will be carried out too.
