Product Description
Wimshurst Electrostatic Generator

Electrostatic generator capable of producing spark up to 3² under favorable weather conditions. Two circular plastic plates, 24cm in diameter, each having metal sectors on their surface along the rims. Both the plates are mounted parallel to each other and rotate in opposite direction with a handle and belt system using joint less rubber belts through pair of large and small pulleys. Metal brushes, consisting of a bunch of laminated flexible strands, rub against the metal sectors and generate static charge.

This charge is conducted to leyden jar capacitors on connecting it to the ball shaped electrodes with a lever handle and gets accumulated on ball shaped dischargers. A pair of lever rods, ball shaped electrodes and a smaller pulley is mounted on an insulated arm. The pivoted section of electrodes has 4mm hole for electrical connection to operate various accessories. The complete assembly is mounted on a stable base with the help of a pair of legs. Complete with instructions.
