He also invented the Carré machine, an electrostatic generator used to produce high voltages.
In electromagnetism, an electrophorus or electrophore is a simple, manual, capacitive, electrostatic generator used to produce charge via the process of electrostatic induction.
Newton also constructed a primitive form of a frictional electrostatic generator, using a glass globe.
The Wimshurst influence machine is an electrostatic generator, a machine for generating high voltages developed between 1880 and 1883 by British inventor James Wimshurst (1832–1903).
To demonstrate this fact, he built a room coated with metal foil and allowed high-voltage discharges from an electrostatic generator to strike the outside of the room.
In 1663, German physicist Otto von Guericke created the first electrostatic generator, which produced static electricity by applying friction.
The Kelvin water dropper, invented by Scottish scientist William Thomson (Lord Kelvin) in 1867, is a type of electrostatic generator.
In 1705, it was noted that electrostatic generator sparks travel a longer distance through low pressure air than through atmospheric pressure air.
A Pelletron is a type of electrostatic generator, structurally similar to a Van de Graaff generator.
It represented an electrostatic generator. The constellation was somewhat popular during the 19th century and had appeared in a number of star charts, but was eventually rendered obsolete when the International Astronomical Union standardized constellation boundaries in 1930 and is now no longer in use.
Edward Nairne developed an electrostatic generator for medical purposes in 1787 that had the ability to generate either positive or negative electricity, the first of these being collected from the prime conductor carrying the collecting points and the second from another prime conductor carrying the friction pad.
His electrostatic generator was created using a sulphur globe attached to an iron rod.
In 1785 a Dutch scientist named Martin van Marum created an electrostatic generator that he used to reduce tin, zinc and antimony from their salts using a process later known as electrolysis.
This was followed in 1660 by Otto von Guericke, who invented an early electrostatic generator.
The jar is charged by an electrostatic generator, or other source of electric charge, connected to the inner electrode while the outer foil is grounded.
