It's just a single NPN, I had drawn everything in xcircuit when I clicked the wrong button and lost it all Will redraw at some point, even if it's just a scan of a hand drawn schematic.

jprampolla wrote:Hi Folks,
I just learned that the transformer used in the schematic I posted
"is a small bell transformer with a 230v primary and an 8 – 10 v secondary. Fitted 'wrong way around' it serves admirably as a step-up transformer. For North American applications you would need a 115v primary with a 4-5 v secondary, again installed the wrong way round.

So any suggestions as to an exact part number or source will be greatly appreciated!
jprampolla wrote:Many, many thanks for the reply and information!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
After waiting actually many years, a few weeks delay isn't an issue. But, I am unclear as to the center connection on the left side of the transformer in the diagram and which side is low voltage. Looking over these transformer photos I have seen, I usually see only 2 connections on each side.
Thanks, Take care, Joe.

just brew it! wrote:Rule of thumb: Inductors (coils) block high frequencies, capacitors block low frequencies and DC. The cutoff frequency (where the degree of blockage becomes significant) depends on the inductance or capacitance value, with higher values corresponding to lower frequencies.Another way of looking at it is that inductors tend to resist change in the amount of current flowing through them, while capacitors tend to resist change in the voltage across them.
