Nixie Watch Power Supply 3 - Camera Guts 2a
Disclaimer: Don't take flash cameras apart. This is the back side of the flash circuit. I charged it up until the ready light was fully lit, then measured the voltage across the Fatty Lumpkin Death Capacitor in the upper left. It showed 311 volts, which is not bad for a simple little circuit like this running off one AA. That's more than I need - nixies are often happy with about 170 volts. It's also plenty dangerous - in this case, potentially lethal - to leave a cap lying around charged up that high. If you touch both the leads when they're charged, they'll dump the whole charge right through you. This is why you should not open flash cameras unless you know how to handle voltagey stuff. That I'm doing this shows that I've come a long way as regards fear-of-voltage in the last few months. Popping the flash dropped the cap voltage to 60V, which I bled off by shorting the leads with the tips of my rubber-handled needlenose pliers. That made a nice big POP and spark and drained the cap to a manageable 5 volts. The little transformer in the lower-right-center is where the magic really happens in this circuit. Transformers are basically two coils of wire around two opposite sides of a square piece of metal. If you put a voltage onto one of the coils, you get a voltage out of the other coil - and the output voltage is proportional to the input voltage times the ratio of the number of turns in the coils. That is, if you jam 1.5 volts into a coil with, say, 10 turns of wire, and the other coil has 1000 turns, you should get 1.5 times (1000 divided by 10) = 150 volts out. People hand-wind their own transformers to get specific voltages they want, but winding thousands of turns of wire around a transformer core sounds horrifically tedious to me. I'd rather use one like this that's pre-fab and farts out a voltage that's much higher than it needs to be but is still usable.
