VTTC Staccato Controller Kit

VTTC Staccato Controller Board Kit

Looking for those coveted "sword-like" sparks from your Vacuum Tube Tesla Coil? Well, you'll need to have a Stacatto Controller to get them. Our VTTC Stacatto Controller is a fully programmable add-on board for most VTTCs which allow you to synchronize and pulse your VTTC to the 60Hz input AC power line. This in turn allows you to maximize the output arc length of your VTTC and also achieve those beautiful "sword-like" sparks everyone is talking about. This advanced VTTC Stacatto controller allows the user to vary the pulsewidth, burst length, and pulse repetition frequency (PRF) of the VTTC using either the included onboard potentiometers or externally mounted poteniometers, and provides nearly an infinite amount of spark effects.
