Ring Launcher

Ring Launcher

Use electromagnetism to launch an object!

Crank a generator to charge the capacitors that launch the ring. Experiment with different ring sizes, weights and designs to achieve new results.

Intended Use

User approaches the exhibit and selects one of the custom aluminum rings and places it on the launch pad. The user then cranks the generator to provide power to a voltage stepper that amplifies and stores the charge in a bank of capacitors. Once the desired voltage is reached (0-750VDC) the user presses the green button for launch.

Test out different launching voltages with different ring sizes & weights to find out which variables produce the most (or least) successful launch.
