Coilgun 2

This is another coilgun i built.

 Detailed information and pictures after the break!



The coilgun has two capacitors with a combined capacity of 4400uF at a voltage of 300V.
Parts from an old softair rifle were added at the top.
The trigger is Thyristor based and the projectiles are small pieces of screws. The stored electric energy is E=0,5*C*U²


As you can see there are some leds and a light at the front. I will provide more pictures, videos and schematics in upcoming posts!
