The Lifter "Coliseum" is a three stages Lifter based on the Lifter v4.0 geometry. It uses three stages of 36 asymmetrical T.T. Brown capacitors ( called cells ) joined so as to form an hexagonal assembly. There is a total of 108 T.T. Brown capacitors.


The Total weight of the Lifter "Coliseum" without a payload is 50 g


When the HV power supply is swiched on, the Lifter "Coliseum" goes upward quickly and remains stable.

The Lifter "Coliseum" specifications

The thin wire is connected to the +30 KV, the top aluminum armature is connected to the ground, the middle armature to the +30 KV and then, the bottom armature to the ground. Each aluminum armature is wing shaped with a thick leading edge ( 1.5 mm ) and a thin trailing edge ( 0.12 mm ). The thin trailing edge is equivalent to the first thin wire and produces a strong electric field. There are 108 asymmetrical capacitors.

  • Size : hexagonal shape with a max width 800 mm,

  • Aluminum armature : 12 Ám thick,

  • Thin coper wire : 1/10 mm diameter.

  • Gap between each stage : 45 mm.

  • Total height : 210 mm

  • Total Weight ( without payload ) : 50 g

TEST with a 40 g payload, total weight = 90 g


A
40 g of payload is placed in the middle of the Lifter "Coliseum"

Test result : When the HV power supply is switched on, the Lifter "Coliseum" goes upward quickly with its 40 g of payload. The total weight of the Lifter "Coliseum" is 90 g. ( see below ). With 50 g of payload ( total weight = 100 g ), the Lifter goes up but the hovering is unstable.

The "Comprehensive Lifter Simulator" - A Freeware software by Blaze Electronic Lab (c) 2002
Courtesy of Saviour - Last Update : October 29th, 2002

A very usefull engineering tool ( Freeware ) has been developped by Saviour from Blaze Electronic Lab, this is "The Comprehensive Lifter Simulator". The theorical datas computed by this software are very close to the experimental results and can be used for engineering your Lifters. You will find below a screen copy of the computed results about the Lifter "Coliseum".

To download free "The Comprehensive Lifter Simulator" ( for PC under windows ), just click on the picture below.

This software for PC computer ( Windows ) can be also downloaded at the Blaze Electronic Lab web site at : http://bel.150m.com/lifters.htm
