"A Car Ignition Coil Driver"

Created: "July 16 2007"
Updated: "Oct 18, 2009" A NEW REVISED PCB & PICTURE OVERLAY.

A Simple design based on a 555 to Drive a Car Ignition Coil.

I Designed this for a Small Electric Fence to Protect my Vegitable Garden from some Small Animal called a Marmots. Last year they ate one of my crops entirely before I could install this device. A Few Shocks and No More Probem. My Garden is on Raised beds and the High Voltage wire is just 3 inches above the wood frames on homemade PVC Pipe Insulators. Could be Quite useful for persons that have Rabbit Problems also, with the wire raised a bit higher, But Read Warning Below.

Definately Makes a STRONG Electric Fence.

However, because it is a Continuous pulse output, WARNING: This can Kill Smaller animals, such as cats and rabbits, And Probably Even Small Children!

For a Much Safer Electric Fence, PLEASE consider making the "C-Mos Fencer" Project.

However this Car coil design can have many other uses as a HV Supply.

Not much else I can say now, maybe more later.

An Etched and drilled PCB's is available.
