Our ready-made Tesla Coil assemblies are the perfect start for your next Tesla Coil project. These assemblies are specifically designed for those wanting to simply concentrate on the electronics and making sparks and arcs, without having to go into the shop to create a nice base and support structure, or investing in a lot of expensive woodworking or machining tools.
These Tesla Coil assemblies utilize very high quality solid wood (not plywood) and 0.5" thick impact and shatter resistant polycarbonate which are both CNC and hand machined here in the United States by our craftsmen to bring you the finest product possible.
The DRSSTC Tesla Coil Assembly 1.0 is designed for low-to-mid powered DRSSTCs that utilize both TO-247, SOT-227 based IGBTs as well as the larger CM300 / CM600 IGBT bricks. This particular design is also the one used for our popular DRSSTC 2 coil that is featured in our book, DRSSTC: Building the Modern Day Tesla Coil (First Edition). This kit includes a CNC machined base available in both premium wood panel as well as clear polycarbonate. It features a solenoid type primary coil using 0.25" DIA copper tubing mounted on 0.5" polycarbonate supports and a 0.375" DIA copper primary strike rail which is used to protect the primary from secondary arc strikes. It is designed to be used with secondary coilforms up to 6 inches in diameter.
We can also provided complete customization for these bases. (Please note that the coilform shown in the photos is not included.)
The arc photos below show the early prototype of the DRSSTC 2 coil which is the basis for the DRSSTC Tesla Coil Assembly 1.0. The DRSSTC 2 which featured a full-bridge of IXYS IXGN60N60C2D1 SOT-227 IGBTs was capable of producting up to five foot arcs. The DRSSTC 2 is featured in our book, DRSSTC: Building the Modern Day Tesla Coil (First Edition) which also includes complete electrical and mechanical design of the coil.
