NIKOLA TESLA

Welcome

to my Tesla Coil Page. This page is about Tesla Transformers, also called Tesla Coils. Tesla Coils are high frequency and high voltage devices. They are able to produce voltages of 100kV and far above at frequencies ranging from 50kHz to 500kHz. With a Tesla coil you can   make your own lightning at home.

My page describes the coils I have built up to now. It also offers some theory and information about construction. And, of course, there are photos of the coils in action.

IMPORTANT
Voltages and currents that are used with tesla coils may be lethal and you only should attempt to build a coil, if you are experienced with high voltage. Read as many information as you can about building coils. Read the SAFETY INFORMATION and see also my links section. In any case I suggest you read the safety hints from Chip Atkinson.
NO. My page is finished, but is updated, of course. Please send me mail about your opinion. I never stop seeking for improvements. And - above all - ENJOY!
