Hi all,

I have been digging around the older posts but I could not find an answer to this question...
I have an ST-2  2kw head that I was thinking of using on a small project.
I am wondering what is the typical quality of an ST waveform ?
Are they usually OK?  Perhaps rated as "average".?
I would assume that this is something that is "built-in" to the winding quality and cannot be adjusted if there is a distorted wave?
(I do not own an oscilloscope)

My other option on this project is to use a Voltmaster 3600 rpm brushless unit which is typically a very good generator, however given the choice I would prefer an 1800 rpm ST.

What's your experience?

  Output should look like an AC one wave. The shape can be distorted by noisy electrical loads.
