The Handheld Discharge Electrodeeasily and safely discharges an electrostatic generator.
- Polished Aluminum Sphere
- Insulated Lucite Rod
- Flexible Wire Lead
- Generator Attaches to Wire Lead
- Electrode Discharges an Electrostatic Generator
A polished aluminum sphere, 10.5 cm in diameter, is mounted on a 40 cm insulated Lucite rod.
A flexible wire lead has a banana plug at one end and a clip on the other, so it can attach to the base of the generator.
