Wimshurst Machine

Product Cat # PH0677

QTY


This hand powered  Wimshurst  machine is an electrical generator with a distinctive appearance. With its two large contra-rotating disks mounted in a vertical plane and a spark gap with in two metal spheres, can produces up to 100 mm spark length under favourable ideal condition. Wimshurst  machine is a historical electro-static machine used for generating Static electric charges Constructed according to the classical model, this generator is safe to use and robustly built. Use the hand crank to rotate the plates in opposite directions by a drive belt mechanism. The close proximity of the plates will produce a substantial charge which is then deposited  and stored in the two Leyden jar capacitors. The plates are heavy high resistance plastic with sectors of aluminium sheet,  and  Leyden jars capacitors for obtaining higher potential made from corning glass and aluminium foil. The whole unit is mounted on a insulated wooden base with feets.
