Does the POE Vortex Coil™ produce electricity?
No, the coil can not output energy without an input source; therefore, it can not produce electricity. If combined with rotating magnets, then the coil can function as a pickup coil. At which time, it would be possible to recollect usable power depending on how fast the magnetic rotor is spinning.
How can I get the POE Vortex Coil™ into 'resonance'?
It is possible to 'resonate' or perfectly oscillate each individual coil to a frequency that harmonically matches the geometry for that particular unit. To find this frequency, an electrical pulse must be fed into each (of the two) conductors in opposing direction. The output leads remain open or connected to xenon tubes, neon bulbs, or long strands of LED's. By gradually tuning the input frequency in increments of 1 kHz, it is possible to observe voltage spikes as they climb. The point where the voltage and magnetic field size have spiked most is considered the 'resonant frequency' of that coil.
How is the POE Vortex Coil™ different from a Tesla coil?
Tesla coils are transformer coils which utilize different ratios to 'step-up' or 'step-down' electricity. By feeding electricity into a primary conductor, the secondary conductor will supply either a higher or lower voltage depending on ratio. Our POE design utilizes a 1:1 configuration and resonance to step-up electricity. Since both conductors are the same gauge (and energized simultaneously), more current is available across the output leads; allowing us to multiply voltage by a factor of 10 while maintaining a higher current output. When stepping up voltage through resonance, the oscillating coil is free of heat since neither conductor has a closed connection. This works to solve the issue of transformer failure and/or explosions due to overheating resins used in Tesla coil type transformers.
How is the POE Vortex Coil™ different from a Rodin coil?
Rodin coils are similar to the POE design in that they are both 1:1 in ratio. The Rodin coil is different in that it is traditionally wound onto a kids toy; and takes on a 12 o'clock to 5 o'clock winding pattern. The two conductors each make multiple turns in and around the center bore. Through our experience, we noticed an asymmetrical bunching that occurs along the inner diameter where the wires touch. To correct this, we produced the very first POE Vortex Coil Framework that utilized individual pathways for the conductors to maintain position in 3-D space. We also noticed that winding time for the Rodin Coil was very long. As a fix, we opted to use LITZ wiring for a wind that's over 75% faster and better equipped for handling higher power. These modifications led to a different winding algorithm which works to enhance the uniformity of the magnetic field and reduce heat and/or arcing due to close wire proximity.
Where is the POE Vortex Coil™ manufactured?
Each of our units are manufactured at our humble lab in the Bronx, New York. They are assembled and tested by hand before shipping to ensure quality and performance is accurate before they go out. Assembly time generally takes 2-4 weeks; although there are instances where the wait may be shorter.
Winding direction only changes functionality of the coils when combining coils with opposing fields. As an individual unit, there is no electrical difference. When stacked with alternating fields, it's possible to detect a slightly larger combined field than two identical coils would otherwise generate.
