Dummy Load

The zappers sends its energy to a rather special load : A living human being (wanting to stay alive (:-)
This charge is special because it can change its characteristics according to:
     = Tiredness, health, age of the person;
     = Humidity of the skin at points of contact (*)
     = Quality of the skin;
     = Contact area (*)
     = The voltage applied between the contact points.
     = And also on the frequency used.
Not easy to make comparisons in such conditions ...

(*) These 2 factors are "stable" if we always use the same type of electrodes under the same conditions.

Dr. Clark recommended the use of 2 tubes of pure copper (the type used for drinking water pipes) ¾"Dia and 4"
long as electrodes for her zapper. The ¾ "(internal) has an outer diameter of about 7/8" or 22mm. The 4 "allows a
comfortable grip and a sufficient contact surface, and may be longer, but not much shorter.
These pipes have 2 layers of paper towel and are moistened with saturated salty water.

For this reason, I decided to compare zappers by plugging them into a load whose characteristics are similar (same
order of magnitude) and showing always the same values.
After some testing on different persons, I developed a network of resistors and capacitors, which satisfies my
needs, knowing that these values can easily be challenged by anyone.
If you have a better proposal, I am open to constructive criticism (and against evil criticism without concrete
solutions).

The zappers can be defined as frequency generator with a
frequency source signal, in series with an internal impedance.
The characteristics of this generator had been defined by Dr Clark
:
    = The maximum voltage (or peak voltage applied) is around 5
to 10V.
    = The minimum voltage (offset) must be always positive (0.25 V
nominal)
    = The frequency of DC voltage (between 10Hz and 500 000Hz -
approximately)
    = The waveform (often square)
    = The speed with which the waveform changes (rise time, fall
time), which gives an overview of the maximum frequency of its
highest harmonics.
    = The internal impedance set to the original zapper to 1000
_Ohms. This impedance may play a moderating role in the case of
a short-circuit output, or a too low internal impedance of the load,
leading to too high currents.

This charge consists of a low resistance value (R1 = 100_Ohms, 1%)
to measure the current through the load.
We will then have 2 separate flows : one with a high resistance value
(R2 = 4.7k) simulating the resistance of the skin, and the other made
of a resistor and a capacitor in series (R3 + C1) = 930_Ohm , C1 =
0.22UF.

This last network may represent the capacitive effect of the skin and
internal organs overall. No inductive impedance has been used.

The principle here is to always use the same load for all zappers, so
as to have comparable measures between them.

See the page “dummy load” for more details.

This dummy load seems to work "best" with carbon copies of the
original H. Clark's zapper
Power Supply

Most zappers are powered by a 9V battery, whose voltage ranges from 9.5V (new battery) down to 4.8V (End of
life’s battery)
We use a power supply of 8V, the equivalent of a “still good battery”.

Certain Internet sites associate zapper and serious illness.
It is not our role to make such assertions. 

Illness does not interest us.

We leave it to the experts of the unhealthy states.
We are only interested to feel better, which is highly subjective, and to get rid of as much “invaders” who drain our resources, as possible.

These invaders, who live at our expense, we name them under the generic name of “parasites”.

We experience the influence of the zapper effect
on these parasites, on a hypothetical and empirical basis, which have nothing to do with medical or scientific rules.
