 Abstract---
This paper covers a number of measurement techniques that can be employedin testing and evaluating many of the SEC [1] Exciter [2] circuits designed by Dr. Stifflerwhile avoiding the potential for error readings caused by the powerful electric fieldssurrounding the Exciters [2].
I Introduction
SEC [1] Exciters [2] unless properly shielded produce both a primary and secondary setof electrical fields during operation and both of these fields can produce localizedinduction into low quality, improperly shielded or incorrectly connected test equipment.Because there is a general interest in SEC [1] Exciters [2] among Alternative EnergyGroups and individuals a means to qualify and quantify operation of these circuitswithout costly lab equipment and specialized test environments became necessary.
II Measurement Circuits
First and foremost in working with SEC [1] Exciters [2] is the required isolation of theExciter from its power source, regardless of the type of the source which could be one ormore of; a line powered power supply, battery or solar cell. To accomplish this manydifferent filters were tried that ranged from simple to complex with component costs tomatch and one general design was found that worked best and requires a small monetaryinvestment along with a simple circuit layout.The filter found to be most effective at providing the required decoupling was found to bea relatively simple and inexpensive multi-stage filter built from readily available RFFerrite Beads and Ceramic Capacitors. The circuit diagram for the power supply filter isshown in Fig: 1, along with a parts list for the components.

Parts List.C1 1uF 100V, Al Radial +/-20%, Part# 158491 [4]C2-C6 0.01uF @ 1kv Ceramic [4]B1-B8 Ferrite Beads on leads of Z=86 ohms @ 10MHz [5]The filter can be constructed on available prototyping circuit boards available from mostelectronics parts suppliers. Whatever construction method is used must take intoconsideration that the filter is designed to remove wideband RF energy and as a resultmust be constructed in a straightforward and acceptable layout.The following picture is of a filter constructed on non-plated prototyping board. The filtershown does not include C1 or C6 as shown in the diagram of Fig: 1.

This same type of filter is used in most of the voltage monitoring examples shown later inthis document, although there are some minor changes in the components andconstruction to enhance it filtering efficiency. What is important for the power supplyfilter is a proper layout as seen in the above example.

RF detection devices can be as simple as a Neon bulb or a few diodes and a LED. Thefollowing picture shows one end of a Neon bulb being held by the observer and the otherend touching a wire with high enough RF voltage to ionize the gas in the bulb.
Fig: 3
The following points are of interest when using this very simple detection method.1) The bulb is indicating AC excitation as shown by ionization at both bulbelectrodes.2) Neon’s can have different ionization (breakdown) voltages (the voltages wherethey show light) and a high ionization voltage may not show an indication in acircuit where a low ionization bulb does. Normally bulbs used in this way rangefrom 68VDC to 90VDC. It would be wise to have a few of each on hand.3) DANGER. You must be fully aware that when checking a circuit in this way yourbody is part of the circuit. You must be very cautious when doing this to insureyou are not grounded or completing a circuit back into the unit under test. If youhave any Electronic Medical Aids, implants or external, NEVER PERFOM ATEST IN THIS WAY.Another simple yet effective means to check for RF in a SEC [1] Exciter [2] is with asimple set of probes made from two diodes and one White LED. The following circuitdiagram shows the construction of these two probes, one is a contact probe and the otheris a proximity probe.
