Similar to VDG5K, but less expensive.

Uses a 13" globe which holds a charge up to 400kV, whereas the VDG5K has a larger 18" globe which holds a charge up to 500kV.

  • Up to a spectacular 400,000 volt potential.
  • 320mm diameter (13 inch) stainless steel collector, highly polished with a mirror-like finish to maximize static potential.
  • 3” diameter shock-resistant transparent butyrate column.
  • On/off switch with grounding jack for available discharge wand.
  • Square plastic base with black finish helps keep charge on the collector.
  • Redesigned brush assembly rarely needs adjustment.
  • Operable in humidities up to 90%
  • Spare belt included

Our standard model 400kV Van de Graaff generator will jump sparks, raise hair, light bulbs, and any number of experiments and demonstrations. Great way to study electrostatic principles. We suggest using our VDGWAND-TALL Discharge Wand for best results and maximum spark distance.

This item requires minimal assembly -- mostly basic mechanical assembly, with no soldering required.


Available grounding rods (all rods can be handheld, but the tall & short also include a stand):
   VDGWAND-TALL - Tall grounding rod on a 24" stand
   VDGWAND-SHORT - Short grounding rod on a 12" stand
   VDGWAND-PORTABLE - Portable grounding rod
