Build Flash Circuit?

Unread postAuthor: CannonCreator » Sun Nov 04, 2007 2:08 am

I was wondering if there was anyone on the forum who is more advanced in electronics and can make a small diagram on how to build a flash circuit, Of coarse without flash tube, or any of that special gas for the flash. Just So I can charge up the compacitor to as much as it is on a flash circuit.

So you know a small diagram of a circuit, I can understnad all the symbols and stuff.

So I used my extreme googling ability and found this:

Enjoy.

PS: It's CAPACITOR...

Did you want to use it as a ignition source for a combustion cannon? Or do you want a light show? 2 different things.

A flash circuit is just a low-voltage flyback with an extra Hv coil to ionize gas in the tube.

there is nothing on this site about making a flash circuit. Im not asking how to MOD IT!!!!!!!

How to make a flash circuit without ionizde gasses in the circuit, and no flash tube!

Just How to make a capacitor Charger, that will charge it to the amount a flash circuit does!

there are plenty of sites out there that have schematics for stun guns.

this is what fires my launcher.

i borked it to the point where i had to have someone else fix it.

after reading some of your posts you might want to just use a bbq igniter, capacitors hurt, alot

Why do you want to build your own flash circuit when you can get'm for free? Or buy a disposable camera for ~$10.

The circuit is not all that simple, well to an EE maybe, but since CannonCreator doesn't even know the correct name for a capacitor, building the circuit from scratch isn't a viable option. Besides, built from scratch it'll cost a heck of a lot more than $10.

To charge a cap to 300 volts all you need is the circuit board from a disposable camera. Make a mistake and it'll hurt.

Or, to charge a cap to 300+ volts all you need is 120 VAC mains, a rectifier bridge and a voltage doubler. Make a mistake and it will kill you.
