Product Description

Please note that this is a heavy/bulky item and shipping will exceed the amount shown -- we will notify you of the exact amount & get your confirmation before we ship your order.

High Voltage Action

Using safe static electricity. Creates over 10 inch bolts of lightning. Yet harmless enough for those "hair raising" experiments.

  • Up to a spectacular 500,000 volt potential.
  • 440mm diameter (18 inch) stainless steel collector (0.7mm thick), highly polished with a mirror-like finish to maximize static potential.
  • Sparks over 10”
  • 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%
  • Some assembly required (this item is fully built but is shipped disassembled, so a little setup time will be needed before the first use)
  • Spare belt included

Our standard model 500kV 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
