High Energy Pulse Generators

 

Mass Launcher Module

The Mass Launcher fires a 4-ounce projectile to a velocity capable of splitting a 1 x 2" pine board on impact.

A lighter projectile can be fired at considerably higher velocity. Device uses stored electrical energy accumulated on a capacitor bank and switched into the accelerator coil by a special three terminal triggered spark switch. The accelerator coil induces a very high amperage current in the projectile that now sets up its own magnetic field that opposes that in the coil causing a repulsive moment of accelerative force on the projectile.

This is the Mass Launcher module, requiring a high energy pulser (such as our HEP50). Do not use this with the higher-power HEP100, as the greater energy in this pulser will break the module's coil apart.

The Mass Launcher uses a flat spiral coil arranged with a vertical flyway and wooden support base. The projectile used is on the heavy side weighing in at over 4 ounces. Its geometry is a flat aluminum washer that is of the same size as the coil. This geometry provides maximum coupling and optimizes electric to kinetic efficiency. Initial velocity is over 300 fps but quickly drops off due to the poor aero dynamics of the projectile shape. A piece of 2 foot long 2 x 1 inch pine board placed on the flyway tube will be easily split by projectile impact.

Projectile may be retained on a flyway for repeating display or free flying.

Mass Launcher Module

The magnetic mortar is an electrokinetic device using a conditioned pulse of magnetic energy to propel an object to a high velocity. This is an excellent advanced science project demonstrating several important electric and magnetic reactions.

This is the assembled module only, requiring a high-energy pulser like our HEP50 or HEP100, and it is built to withstand the pulse of the higher power HEP100 platform.

It is built to order, so please allow 4-6 weeks build time, or contact us if you have any questions.

 

The actual mortar module is mounted on an adjustable trunnion-type mount that is secured to the top section with 4 dual springs to absorb the considerable impact.

The Magnetic Mortar uses a coil wound in a conical design to increase surface area and repulsion forces. The coil is wound within a tube that pivots on a trundle assembly to adjust elevation and give the looks of a mortar. The projectile is made with geometry to match the coil and allow maximum inductive coupling. Initial velocity is over 400 fps, and we have gotten ranges of over 1000 feet, even with less than optimal aero dynamics.

This is a very dangerous project and should only be attempted by experienced and responsible adults. Not only is it a severe lethal shock hazard, but also the projectile can maim or kill a person. The device must be treated as a real gun!
