BD-10 Tesla Coil Demonstration by the Naval Air Warfare Center

16th May 2023

The Naval Air Warfare Center Aircraft Division (NAWCAD) recently released a YouTube video demonstrating Tesla coils and how electricity and high voltage work. The video is a great educational resource for anyone interested in learning more about these topics.

Tesla coils have always been a fascinating subject for those interested in science and technology. Using high voltage and high-frequency alternating current electricity, they produce mesmerizing patterns and light displays and is the reason why Tesla coils are popular among people of all ages. 

In the demo, NAWCAD discussed how Tesla coils work and how high voltage can create electric arcs that can travel through the air. They also discuss the principles of electricity and high voltage, and how these principles are used in Tesla coils.

One of the Tesla coils used in the video is the BD-10 High Frequency Generator from Electro-Technic Products. The BD-10 is a lightweight, self-contained handheld generator that produces a spark at a high voltage and frequency. It is used to detect pinholes and vacuum leaks, and in the classroom to light spectrum tubes and florescent lamps.

The BD-10 is a great tool for anyone interested in learning more about electricity and high voltage. It is also a fun and educational toy for kids. It is an excellent tool for those who want to experiment with high voltage and electrical discharges. If you are looking for a useful tool, this is perfect for hobbyists and professionals alike!
