Due to time constraints due to things like life, work, education and more or less sleep, this project is split into some smaller phases.
Part 3 – 6 outputs build
In this video we go through building a optical interface for galvanic isolation between controller and Tesla coils. There is also switches for selecting between different interrupters and a dry-test function to test MIDI files without Tesla coils connected. The analog interrupters are from Profdc9 PCB pack that is full of free schematics, designs, gerber files. The 6 channel MIDI interrupter is the feature rich Syntherrupter made by Max Zuidberg. He shares all the plans, documentation, code and schematics on: https://highvoltageforum.net/index.php?topic=1020.0
I am building a Tesla coil show controller that can control up to 6 Tesla coils at once. It will feature individual interrupters, touch screen controlled MIDI interrupter, safety features to ensure a safe method of working with the Tesla coils before a show, under a show and after a show. It will all be housed in a transportable 19″ rack mount flight case for ease of transportation and to protect the electronics. Project thread: https://highvoltageforum.net/index.php?topic=1417.0
