The wimshurst machine is an electrostatic generator, a machine for conveying high voltages made some spot in the extent of 1880 and 1883 by British organizer James Wilmshurst. It has an undeniable appearance with two tremendous contra-pivoting floats mounted in a vertical plane, two crossed bars with metallic brushes, and a brilliance opening plot by two metal circles.

In the Wimshurst machine, the two guaranteed plates and their metal zones turn backward habits passing the crossed metal neutralizer bars and their brushes. An irregularity of charges is initiated, improved, and gathered by two game plans of metal brushes with focuses set close to the surfaces of each plate. These locators are mounted on protecting help and associated with the yield terminals. The positive data collects the accumulating charges radically until the dielectric breakdown voltage of the air is reached and an electric sparkle sways across the opening.

Key Points:

1, This machine obtains a large amount of electric charge and high voltage (tens of thousands of volts) in the electrostatic experiment, and cooperates with other instruments to carry out experiments on the charge distribution on the conductor surface/the discharge of the power line/tip discharge/vacuum tube of the electrostatic plant.

2, Function: It can perform experiments such as electrostatic induction, spark discharge, tip discharge, and power change of capacitors;

3, Advantages of the product: The conductive plate is coated with high-quality conductive material, which is firm in use and long in life. It overcomes the shortcomings of the original aluminum foil and is easy to fall off, and can improve the electrification performance. It can be used in wet weather.

4, Discharge distance: in a relative humidity less than 60% environment, the discharge distance is greater than 4 cm; in a relative humidity less than 85% environment, the discharge distance is 2 cm;

5, Suitable for children over 8 years old
