The basic circuit diagram.
A close look at the parts of the parasitic capacitor.
Side view of the parasitic sandwitch mounted to an Exciter PCB.
The parasitic plates and the cardboard insulators. The structure is mounted to the Exciter PCB with a Nylon screw and nut.
How it all fits together before mounting to the PCB.
The primary Heat generator is L4 with the transistor adding to overall output. The picture shows L4 mounted above the L3, this is for the photo only. L4 gets very hot and is normally mounted in a remote location so it will not overheat and damage any of the PCB components.
When mounting the generator in a calorimeter, L4 is placed so that it will not offer additional heat to the transistor (Explained later).
Close up view of the primary Heat generator, the proprietary toroid.
As stated above, both the transistor and the toroid generate significant Heat output with the toroid being the largest. Because both are Heat produces the measurement of the circuit in a calorimeter is complicated owing to the fact that one does not want the transistor to become to hot and degrade.
Placing the entire circuit into a calorimeter in order to capture the transistor and toroid output simultaneously will cause the transistor to over heat and overall heat output will drop as the transistor degrades.
The heating toroid when exposed to an open ambient temperature of 24'C will reach a core temperature of >62'C in under three minutes. Depending on the heat sink placed on the transistor, the transistor will normally reach 40->48'C in the same time period.
The calorimeter cannot be of direct water type as the toriod detunes markedly in a water bath and of course this can not be applied to the measurement of the transistor, therefore a different approach to calorimeter design is required.
