Large Diameter Coil Winding


My picturers are a mosaic of steps to take when winding coils on PVC electrical conduit.

Uses include Tesla coils, flow sensors, and antennas.

So what is this 10ft wound pole going to be used for?

Hello ! The primary use for the ten foot coil is for a restricted-space antenna. By restricted-space I mean a compromise between a long wire suspended by posts or trees and a short, effective coil. Of course the Tesla coil builder community is always interested in any large coil form that can be used as a secondary coil support for HIGH voltage output ! Another application which is a bit esoteric involves using a coiled tube section in a flow sensor application where the metalic content of material flowing through the tube is monitored for contamination or mimimg slurry contest. Hopefully I have answered your question. Thank you for your interest. Best, JohnHagy
