Van de Graaff Generator (Motor-Driven)
An efficient design for all the usual electrostatic experiments and for where a continuous source of high voltage is required. It has a strong metal base with profiled hand grips, housing a quiet running a.c. motor. The discharge sphere may be plugged into the base or supported separately, linked to the arching post with a standard 4mm connecting lead.
