Just a question about my ignition circuit.
The main thing about the circuit is that it uses this sparker for ignition:http://www.testntools.co.nz/sinsui-elec ... 30598.html
When I test the spark jumping under pressure, I can't here the spark jump inside the chamber as you often can with a stungun circuit but that's not surprising since this sparker dooes seem a fair bit weaker, especially when it jumps the small sparkplug gap. However, holding one of the wires slightly off the chamber produces a tiny spark jumping between the wire and chamber. This must mean that the spark is also jumping the spark plug so as to complete the circuit.
The weird thing is that the spark will jump between the wire and chamber even after I've stopped pressing the ignition button. It's like it has built up charge that it can't release in one go. On top of that, if I leave it to spark a bit after I've stopped pressing the button, and then touch the wire from the chamber to the wire on the spark plug, it produces a noticeable spark.
Anyone know what's going on here? Was wondering if it has something to do with the sparkplug I'm using. Hopefully it doesn't interfere with the ignition on the cannon but it'll be awhile before I can test whether this circuit has got the guts to work at 10x.
