Two flocking hoppers connected to the electrostatic generators
equipped with turning brushes.
EST902 ESD immunity diagnosis and debugging system, which was use as the electrostatic generator
, can produce waveform according to the requirement of IEC61000-4-2.
Another machine he developed satisfactorily was the cylindrical machine in 1882 and the following year the improvements he introduced to the electrostatic generator
were so widely accepted, it became known as the Wimshurst machine, yet he never attempted to patent any of his modifications.
Epstein said that the use of an electrostatic generator
unit, as opposed to an electromagnetic one, was necessary because "at macroscales, an electromagnetic device has much greater power density.
Other examples include the Van de Graaf electrostatic generator
or Wimshurst electrostatic generator
