Doesn't matter. The current through that lead is almost nothing. Shielding isn't really necessary for it either. It doesn't radiate an interfering signal, and the voltage is high enough you'd be hard pressed to couple interference into it that would cause a noticeable effect. Your main concern is the breakdown voltage of the wire's insulation. I don't know the details of your monitor but if it's monochrome I'd expect the voltage to be less than 20 kV. (But then I've been surprised by TVs before, so don't just take my word for it.)tcurt wrote: With regard to the CRT anode, I'm deciding I need to route it beneath the build deck because the controller board is god-awful ugly and bright green. In order to do that I have to sever the anode wire and re-attach it. I know it's a high-voltage line and I have some suitable shielded single-conductor cabling for it, but does anyone know of a maximum length it can be and/or does it matter?
And now you know why you got Coal from him for Christmas. Of *course* it didn't bother you, so it wasn't a problem...Antknot wrote: I had an RCA tv that drove my brother nuts because of the HV transformer. Didn't bother me.

Cool! I had a friend who did field service for a company that made batch mixing equipment, and one of his clients was a plant that made (among other things) ammo for the Avenger cannon. He had a photo of an artillery projectile in flight with his name written on it in white paint. He joked that he'd never die because the "bullet with his name on it" had already been fired.Antknot wrote: No concerts worked testing ammo for the GAU-8/A first job out of tech school.
