    as a diy experimenter
    we have a lot of options if the unit fail then we can easily retrofit to solar power or wind or bedini cap dump
    actually we can start with toroids and rods only and later loop back system
    so if anyone has done the above and share then we can continue or make other set up which are cheaper to make

    Your concerns are perfectly legit. After many years of Milows disapointments I have seen clame after claim and nothing came out of it. I would presume that interested experimenter can see trough the smoke and inuendos. For newcomers it is valuable expiriance if thay finally get to build something. Who says it has to work first time. As for the Clarence I commend him for sticking out whit all the occasional poking and bagering. In time we all are going to see the the results of his work. Only than we can judge him as being honest and respected gentlemen or som fly by night soon to be forgotten. Personally I think he owes us nothing.
    It is his claim an it is up to us grownups to decide if we are willing to except his lead or not. If it turns to be working device I think it is wort to go trough the expiriance. Finally who says that he has to spell it out with all the data. Perhaps he cannt. Would you be so brave to stick your neck out and risk big brother messing out with your last supper. Power is in numbers. Info is out and that is enough for now. Coach is here, use ocasion to replicate any way you can. Tomorrow he may be gone and with him all he knows. Instead of bagering ask valid questions and let the time do its dance.

    I am very open minded about the concept of free energy, but if I had a device that I thought looked like it might be over unity, I would be testing the bejeebers out of that device and putting the device fully through its paces, so I could confirm how the device really does perform under different conditions. This would naturally include some simple long term run tests that would show clearly whether the device could self run or not. I would not be interested in making claims about such a device without fully confirming first through extensive testing how the device really does perform.

    When asked for these sort of very basic and important details, Clarence has just ignored the requests or gave strange comments that he would not do what other people 'demanded', or that people should do the tests them self. I can say for 100% certain that if I was testing a device I built that I thought might be over unity and if I posted about it on a forum like this saying that I thought it was over unity, I would have no reason whatsoever not to tell people on the forum what my actual test results are, as I personally would only be interested in how the device really performs, and not at all interested in misleading others for whatever reason. I also certainly wouldn't ignore people if they asked for those sort of important test details, and I also wouldn't give people rude replies telling them to go and do their own tests if they wanted to know how my own device setup was actually performing. It of course wouldn't make any sense to respond to others that way if I was really interested in trying to help other people get a clear understanding of what my own test setup could really do. That is just a plain undeniable fact.

    Clarence has put in 60 ground rods and his device by all indications still can't self run. Clarence therefore does not know what it takes to make this device a self runner, if that is really possible for this setup, so IMO people should take all of this into consideration. If you spend a bunch of money and effort replicating Clarence's setup, you should understand first that your device may not do anything unusual. We simply have no useful test results from Clarence so far which indicate what his own device really can do.

    On another note, I have already explained previously that ferrite toroids are typically not at all suitable for use at 50Hz to 60Hz. Toroids made for AC power transformer use at 50Hz to 60 Hz are made from materials different than ferrite, such as grain oriented silicon steel.

    I doubt there is any practical information linking geomagnetic field strengths to this sort of setup. Don Smith hinted that there may be some connection between geomagnetic field strength measurements and the performance of his over unity devices, but various things Don Smith has said either don't make sense or can't be replicated by anyone. Don Smith also seemed to confuse geomagnetic field readings in nano-Teslas with voltage measurements, but it was not unusual for Don Smith to mix up things like that in his talks. IMO, it would be wise to take these sort of unconfirmed claims with a grain of salt.

    If you decide to build this setup, at least have the understanding that it simply may not work. I just wouldn't want to see anyone have the wrong idea and spend a bunch of money and time on something that, up to this point anyway, we honestly just do not know how Clarence's own setup really performs.

    Hello Ramset. From your exaggerations above it appears that you are not too much interested in a fair and reasonable discussion of this matter. Also, in reality, it is you who seems to be very overly concerned about me expressing my own point of view here. If you can indicate anything I said that is not accurate, then please point it out.

    I am honestly very interested in what Clarence's setup can actually do, but I also do not want to see anyone be mislead. I clearly explained my reasoning in my comment above of why I am raising questions about Clarence's device and claims. It all boils down to whether a person is truly interested in facts that can be demonstrated, or whether they are content with wishful thinking and possibly misleading other people. I think any reasonable person would have to agree that if someone really wants to share details in a forum like this about how a device they are testing really works, there would simply be no reason for not sharing actual performance tests results info. People can choose to believe whatever they like, but that doesn't change the fact that we simply don't know at this point how Clarence's device really performs. Are you suggesting that you personally would prefer not to know how Clarence's setup actually performs under some basic and simple tests? Clarence is either interested in sharing important details about how is device is constructed and how it really performs, or he isn't. There is no in between. As long as Clarence continues to dance around providing such very basic and important info, it is a pretty much a given that people who are truly interested in how his device performs are going to continue to ask questions.

    Hello again,

    yes I have 60 rods pushed - not BEATEN - in a linked 3 foot spaced series which loops back to itself and this is what makes my Ground RETURN Grid. at a single point at a rod adjacent to my house entrance, to that rod I attach my earth neutral wire lead ( # 6 AWG) that leads directly to my Captor loop you see in my photo of the unit. from my inverter NEUTRAL I also have a # 6AWG wire lead that goes out side to a separate open ended 3 foot spaced series of 4 rods as the GROUND GRID INPUT.

    with reference to the " hot zone " a builder should need less than I did for certain. how many you will have to determine for yourself. I tell you how to know in previous posts.

    thanks

    Clarence

    In this discussion we will take a look at the winding directions of
    a toroidal transformer. In the diagram CCW means
    (COUNTER CLOCKWISE) and CW = (CLOCKWISE).

    At no time can a CW wound winding ever become a CCW winding
    without removing the wire and rewinding in the opposite direction.

    In these 4 stations we are looking at the Primary winding. During our
    review we may discovery that Tortran is sending Clarence identically
    wound Toroid's and primaries in one direction only.

    If this is true then we may conclude that for the primaries connected to the inverter in parallel opposing windings are not good for the project. Up until now all we have to go on concerning the primaries is that TORTRAN winds them.

    In the event we find that both Tortran winds are either CCW or they are both CW, we can conclude a number of things. In other words if we
    find that the Tortran special order transformers are NOT a right and left set
    then we can go forward for the purpose of dissecting this project.

    If so this would make my new diagram incorrect.

    I'm just skimming along here so if this has already become clear just ignore this explanation. Picture the toroids you have drawn above laying flat on a table. Imagine them as being large coins with a heads and a tails. Flip one with the CW winding over so heads up becomes tails up. What do you have? Do you see it ? If it is hard to picture in your mind just find a donut shape thing of any sort and put a couple windings of wire, string or whatever around it then flip heads and tails a few times (flipping with a left to right motion).

    hello sinergicus,

    first and foremost my unit is NOT an experiment! It is an actual WORKING UNIT!

    secondly it DOES require a pure sine wave inverter - aims 3000 watt is what you see in my unit.

    the toroids should be for 50HZ performance. what is their watt rating?
    what is their outside diameter measure? are they a grain oriented mix core?

    The rods In use are a copper bonded coating outside galvanized steel inside
    5/8 inch diameter - 8 foot length.

    The charger you suggest MIGHT be good or not? naturally I prefer mine.
    you will definitely find out!

    all the best ,

    Info correction

    After careful reading of this post that I have quoted let me post what I think I understand from your post. If the KWM at the inverter is showing the same when running your fridge off your system as it did when running off the mains then that tells me you are actually running the fridge off the battery and inverter. That is why you need to recharge your battery.

    Now the interesting thing to me is that when the system is not powering another load apparently there is enough excess power coming from the ground to run the charger and recharge the battery. Is that correct?

    Even if you do have to let your system rest to recharge the battery that is still an impressive accomplishment! I realize a solar system with batteries is almost the same except your system works 24 hours a day!

    Please correct any misunderstandings I may have about how your system is operating.



    Respectfully,

    Hello citfta,

    No the fridge is NOT being powered by the battery and Inverter! It is merely being ASSISTED by the inverter and battery!

    the battery and Inverter only POWER the toroids and the Neutral input to Ground and at the same time power only the phase of the Captor output - the neutral of the Captor out put is receiving its power from the earth Ground Return NOT from the battery or inverter. if not for the power from the earth Ground Return NOTHING would be powered whether fridge or whatever! disconnect the earth neutral and nothing will happen.

    thats why WAY BACK when I only had just two ground rods NOTHING HAPPENED. as I purposely only added a few rods at a time I began to receive voltage across the Captor output circuit. I purposely kept only adding a few rods at a time to see what improvement would show itself on the system output. It wasn't until I reached 60 rods that the earth was giving enough potential to sustain a voltage rms that would match the output
    PHASE rms of the inverter and make a useful Captor out circuit.

    So - no - the inverter and battery in NOT powering the Captor output , ONLY assisting.

    thanks for listening,

    Clarence

    Correct SIR

    Primaries are built with the same winding tool (Tortran manufacturer)

    Primaries ares connected : Black toroid wire to black toroid wire to Line (inverter)
    White wire to white wire to Neutral
    So primaries are in phase

    Secondaries are identically wound ( by us)
    and connected in phase (top to top, bottom to bottom)
    ALL THE TIME, the 2 transformers try to produce the same secondary currents
    which cancel each other out.
    We get a loop without huge current and then no big primary power demand.

    Clarence, correct me if this is wrong.
    Hello Cheors,

    you are correct sir.

    the actual happening is within the toroids primary and secondary
    relationship which KILLS the lenz law (bemf) effect and only leaves the amperage component to have the relationship to each other when connected in loop form.

    I like your explanation because it gets the job done in less words and has more useful effect on the members without having to in depth explaining
    things.

    thank you very much for your efforts Sir.

    Another to consider

    This fellow harvested "magnetic" energy from the environment
    and found that the immediate area could only support so much Charge.
    placement had to be not too far... not too close ...an "array" so to speak
    was formed.

    sorry to get to your reply so late Sir.

    with respect to the KWM when powering my refrig it shows the actual volts
    in the circuit, it shows the actual amperage the fridge uses- 1.57 amps, and it shows the actual wattage - somewhere around 189 watts.( just a small unit as I don't need much fridge space ).

    before powering it with my unit I had plugged a KWM into the mains circuit the fridge normally uses so I could know how close the KWM readings would match whether on mains power or my separated unit power. the readings were almost identical. loved that!

    with respect to the charger the xantrex 2 is a way better unit! it has a faster bulk charge system, and mid charge system and float system.
    it has a 3 bank capability which is desirable as I am going to step my unit up to 3 battery bank. this would enable the charger to work less to keep the bank at high charge since its easier to just keep three batteries topped instead of bulk charging one up and down. the charger is just a much more desirable unit to help maintain a unit that would power a complete household which I will get to. the charger itself at full blast uses 3 amps and then drops off decently to around 1.1+- in sustain mode 10-20% charge. you can judge by the amps your charger unit takes when it operates. my charger has an excellent led performance light system that is easy to watch at all times.

    its users choice.

    thanks for your patience Sir.

What I was questioning was BroMikey's drawing and as you have now said yourself, the primary coils are both wound the same. His drawing however indicates that one coil is wound CW and one CCW and states it both in the letters (CW & CCW) and the way he drew the windings. Since you approved of his drawing (you obviously missed it too - which is OK we are all human...) I simply tried to interpret the drawing based on your words Clarence and then the drawing did not make sense. Following your and BroMikey's last few posts my questions turn out to be well founded.

    You sounded a bit upset with my questions. Please don't be, I don't mean to judge you or insinuate that you don't know what you are talking about. I just wanted to understand why what you said and what the drawings show were not the same thing. In the end it will help everyone because they won't make the mistake shown on the drawing.

    BroMikey, I am very grateful for your efforts with the drawings, it does make things a lot easier to picture. Please don't see my questions as insults but rather as constructive criticism. I realize you have put a great deal of effort in it and that is great. I'm only trying to help.

    Hello Fjohnnyb

    no I was not upset in the least even if it seemed that way. as i have stated before I am just a very blunt person when it comes to getting a point across.

    you are correct that in Bro's earlier drawing that I at first did not catch the error that was made.

    please, never be offended by what I say as it is never intended to be such.

    ANY members help is always valued. after all that is our only joint purpose on site.

    your comments to me will ALWAYS be welcome SIR.

    thanks again,

    Clarence
