Aluminum Collecting Electrode for “Static Genecon” (B10-1324-W0)

[Overall Advantages to Users]

  • It is for a famous experiment of the electric discharge phenomenon between two aluminum spheres with Static Genecon.
  • Combination of Static Genecon and Aluminum spheres makes the electrostatic experiments of Van de Graaff be able to become smaller-scale experiments.
  • Check the experiments’ guide for detailed experimental information.


  • Spark discharge
  • Attractive and Repulsive electrostatic force

[To all users]

  • By sticking strips of moisture-resistant paper on top of the sphere, you will experiment and observe the paper strips levitating when turning the handle of Static Genecon.
  • Learners can imagine the direction of the electric force lines by noting the direction of the floating strips.
  • Use this product along with the Static Genecon for a great demonstration of electrostatic electricity.

[To teachers]

  • More safe-experiment of static electricity for learners can be provided.
  • More safe-discharge experiments by learners-self can be provided.
  • Carry out attractive and repulsive electrostatic force experiments with the combination of Static Gencon and Aluminum spheres in easily and safely for learners.

[To students]

  • Learners can experiment with an electrostatic discharge because of safe-level voltage from Static Genecon.
  • Learners can control the generating static electricity from Static GENECON to experiment with discharging, attractive, and repulsive of static electricity by themselves.
