Electric OU: The Bedini North Pole Motor, First Light
As you see. I made the rotor using the most lazy and rudimentary technique I could think of. The motor works fine, and can charge an external battery or capacitor very nicely. I just charged a 260 uF cap to 160 volts in about 30 seconds. The motor draws about 60-70 mA at 13 volts input from a battery. I have not yet seen what its lowest operating voltage will be. I didn’t have to spend any new money on this motor… I had all the parts and materials lying around already.
