Line up the arrows on each connector between light ring and power supply.
Plug the power supply into an AC power outlet.
Once the ring is lit and the Ferrocell is placed on top, you can put a magnet on the glass. Note- Light rings sold after January 1, 2016 have the Ferrocell pre-mounted in the removable top ring.
Turn off the lights and darken the room.
Changing the magnets position and orientation will display different aspects of the field:
You can remove the bottom plate and hold the ring over a dark area to get more detail and saturation:
>For hands free operation, cut a 80mm hole in a medium sized cardboard box painted flat-black inside. Place the light ring over the hole and turn off the room lights.
>You can place the magnet UNDER the cell (close to the glass) to view the field over top of the magnet.
> The Ferrocell can be glued onto the light ring for a permanent hold. Use a water-based glue: NO Superglue NO silicon.
>A nail or other ferrous metal can be brought near the magnet on the cell surface to watch the field bend and stretch. BE CAREFUL these magnets are very powerful! Keep a firm grip and a safe distance between the magnet and metal (or other magnets).
> If you use 2 magnets it's easier to control their positions if they are in repulsion instead of attraction.
