transformers & power packs

HI Has anyone ever heard of a twin transistorized powerpack from 'Troller" called 'Autopulse twintranspak 2.5' ?

If so, I'm looking for instructions on it, possible schematics if possible.

Thanks, regards Jim

I have the Troller Autopulse TwinsTransamp 1 power pack, but have never opened it to draw the circuit. The instruction sheet I have does not have the circuit, just sections labelled General Description, Control and features, Hook Up instructions, Operational notes, and Trouble Shooting Problems. If you want, I will scan it for you.

I used to have the Troller AutoPulse Transamp which I did open and draw the circuit so I could make a hand held throttle. That circuit is below. I suspect the TwinTransmap version is just a double version of that circuit. I did check out the patent listed on the transformer, but the circuit in the patent did not match the one used.

Here is a simple throttle based on the Troller Auto-Pulse:

No Problem. I'll scan it and send it to you.
