High Voltage Experimenters Handbook

"This page serves as a repository for all the bits and pieces I am collecting towards creating a modern version of the classic 1954 work by Craggs and Meek: High Voltage Laboratory Technique." - Jim

High Voltage Experimenter's Handbook

delabs Notes -

First note a important point, HV is dangerous and the behavior of HV is shockingly unpredictable.

Jim shown caged by Faraday but protected by the law of Gauss. Two medium sized Tesla coils from Brian Basura and Ross Overton were used .

High Voltage Experimenters Handbook

Humidity, clothing, footwear, gloves and furniture all add to the safety factors. Not to mention the special insulators and probes in plastic and ceramic that guards your body from a fatal mishap.

First you should be very capable in using normal electrical equipment with proper prior training. Then you should have experience in Mains power and energy systems. Lastly you should be above 20 Yrs of age and Learn HV theory and Practice under a Very experienced professional in that Specialization. Jim Lux has created some valuable pages on HV.

High Voltage Experimenter's Handbook

There is no harm whatsoever now in studying and mastering the theory and also teaching others about the energy that is in high voltage. HV in HF is even more funny.

All that can be invented is already invented by nature. Man can only uncover a few facts and write about it. Start with this handbook. Life is precious, take care.

Battery and Energy Management

Using Rechargeable Battery is Environment Friendly. The 1.5V and 9V are more popular in small devices and flashlights and can create more E-Waste. So rechargeable better is it not?

Battery and Energy Management

There is also a 4.5V Battery or Cell. This is not so popular, it is bigger too. It packs more punch or current, i used it to flash mini Magnesium bulbs. Luckily i did not hurt my eyes in this fascination. Many cells form a battery, but in Normal Spoken English, both mean same. A cell is a single unit of cathode-anode-electrolyte. Things you ought to know

Never Short Circuit a Battery, Fire hazard, Chemical Spill.Keep the Terminals of Battery and Gadget clean, Shiny.
  • Guard it - Dust, Grime, Rust, Liquids & small metal objects.
  • Storage - Never keep in a Metal Box or Can or Metal Safe.
  • Use Rechargeable Batteries, that is good for the Planet Earth.
  • Do not leave dead batteries in Device and forget it for days.
  • Keep away from Heat, Direct Sunlight and High Humidity.
  • Unless allowed, do not keep a charger always linked to Device.
  • Do not Stock or build Inventory of Batteries, buy on demand.

This Website has Sufficient Data on Alternative Energy (electrical). Energy Conversion and Management and most important ... Batteries. Batteries are a bit expensive, they have a long life. If care is taken, they can last long. Any Energy Harvesting needs a Battery as an Electrical Flywheel. SuperCaps too act as buffers or large reservoirs.

RCA connector or Phono Connector

An RCA connector, sometimes called a phono connector or cinch connector, is a type of electrical connector commonly used to carry audio and video signals. The connectors are also sometimes casually referred to as A/V jacks.

RCA connector or Phono Connector

The name "RCA" derives from the Radio Corporation of America, which introduced the design by the early 1940s for internal connection of the pickup to the chassis in home radio-phonograph consoles. It was originally a low-cost, simple design, intended only for mating and disconnection when servicing the console. Refinement came with later designs, although they remained compatible.
