JLN Labs replicates Steorn's free energy motor

French replicator, Jean-Louis Naudin, says he has confirmed that there is no counter electromotive force (back EMF) in the toroidal coils -- a key to converting magnetic power into kinetic (motion) power.

The Steorn electromagnetic motor replication by Jean-Louis Naudin, Dec. 26, 2009. JLN Labs -


On Dec. 15, we reported that the Irish company, Steorn, had launched a public demonstration of their e-Orbo technology which purportedly is a self-looped system in which the same battery that turns the motor is then recharged by a generator that is powered by that motor -- apparently picking up extra energy somewhere in the process, in the tradition of Nikola Tesla and more recently of John Bedini and Tom Bearden.

The phenomenon is said to be due in large part to the motor running without back-EMF.  In layman terms, that essentially means that the motor runs without any internal resistance other than from bearings.  In some cases, the claim goes even further, stating that a configuration can be attained that actually results in converting static magnetic power into kinetic (motion) power.  That is what Steorn is claiming.

Conventional physics says this is impossible (aka heretical).

Now a well-respected replicator, Jean-Louis Naudin of France, has reproduced this key portion of the e-Orbo technology.  And he has posted a clear set of instructions of how he did it, along with his results.

Naudin states that the purpose of this experiment was "firstly to check the proper functioning of the Steorn engine and the facts presented in his video of December 15, 2009."  He reports that he was able to confirm the three primary claims relating to the motor portion of the system:

  • There is no counter electromotive force (Back EMF) induced in the stator coils when the rotor is turned manually.
  • A reversal of the polarity of the coils does not change the direction of rotation.
  • When the rotor is manually braked, the supply current in the toroidal coils remains constant.

When running, Naudin's replicated motor accelerates up to around 2600 rpm within around a minute.

In his synopsis, he wrote:

"The Steorn engine reproduced here confirms the observations and the measurements submitted on December 15, 2009 by Sean McCarthy in Dublin. This engine, an atypical configuration, is really very interesting and worth to be explored and developed because it presents a characteristic of non-reciprocity of the energy load on the power source through the breaking of the symmetry (regauging effect). Other experiments and tests will soon be conducted to better understand and improve this innovative principle.  Using the potential energy of magnets to produce a clean and free energy is really worth exploring and developing very seriously for the future of our planet."

His next step will probably be to replicate the generator portion of the system so he can generate electricity from the rotating motor.

Here's one of the videos that Naudin posted showing his replica in operation.

Not a Valid Replication

Next e-Orbo Demo Jan. 8 12, 17:00 GMT

The following information was sent to Steorn's emailing list Jan. 5, 2009 8:46 AM Mountain. UPDATE

Steorn invites you to visit for the second in a series of live talks and experiments regarding Orbo Technology.

Subject: " Steorn's Orbo Electromagnetic Interaction COP >1"

Description: "Sean McCarthy, CEO of Steorn, will discuss Steorn’s Orbo electromagnetic interaction and 
demonstrate that the Coefficient of Performance is greater than 1."

Who should attend: "Anyone interested in understanding Orbo Technology or taking up an Orbo Technology Developer License on 1st February 2010."

Hi Sterling, 

Our engineers went through the JLN 'replication' today - both the information on his website and the his youtube channel. 

We have to advise that this is in no way a valid replication of Orbo.  It is very clear to us that the arrangement that he has set up has a significant amount of [Counter]EMF in the system.  While not quite a normal pulse motor, it certainly is not Orbo and is almost certainly not OU. 

We will be conducting another live experiment this Friday - which we expect will be far more interesting than the one that we did before the Holidays.

Despite the shortcomings of this replication, I think it's important that Naudin be thanked and encouraged in his attempt, and in his openness to share in detail what he did and how he did it.  That kind of transparency is what can help propel these breakthrough technologies forward.

Exhibits Back-EMF; Not a Faithful Replication

On December 30, 2009 10:13 AM Mountain, an OS SKDB member wrote:

Hi Sterling

Just watched Naudin's latest V2 video and he has BEMF on his scope shot. The 0V line should be flat to show no BEMF.
His motor is showing BEMF like a normal coil.

He is not being faithful to the Orbo design and hence not getting rid of BEMF.

The 0V part of the pulse should be perfectly flat.

Sorry at this time I cannot release more info, but will do when allowed. I think January and what Steorn will be demonstrating should be very exciting!

Free Energy Journalist replicates Simple JLN Steorn Orbo test

On December 31, 2009 1:49 PM Mountain; Charles Michael Couch wrote:

Over the last couple days I attempted to duplicate the Steorn Tests on the JLN website. Not having a proper toroid I used a doughnut shaped magnet to wind the coil instead. I had no success with this and chalked that up to the fact that it was a magnet.

Then I tested a metal drill bit with a coil wrapped around the end to see what it would do against a neodymium magnet. Eventually I ended up with a successful replication of the effects without a toroid at all. 

Here are my findings and thoughts on it...

Succeeded in getting the Orbo JLN Test effect...

1. Drill bit with coil wrapped around one end 56 turns.

2. Neo magnets on top of a thin Clementine packaging wooden box with ~1/4" spacer between box and neo.

3. 6V-9V required 3V failed (did not try 4V or 5V).

4. Only one polarity works depending on polarity of magnet.

5. Release of drill bit from magnet is very quick, instant.

6. Odd observation...

When attaching the drill/coil to the magnet it would often turn into a preferred position, often it would not. This may have been effects of residual magnetism in the drill bit. I could duplicate this effect by turning the drill bit upside down and attaching it to the magnet then turning it back over and attaching. This is what leads me to believe it is a residual effect.

Apparently all that is happening is the reverse of EM Coil magnet pull motors. The big payoff is probably in the ease with which the coil breaks the magnets hold on the drill bit when pulsed with 6-9V DC in the proper direction. My guess is that the drills residual magnetic field from the pulse continues the push without the need of applied current. Which for one polarity of the magnet was one battery polarity and for the other reversed.

Basically we are reverse polarizing the drill bit which reverses the stator magnets pull turning it into a push, nothing new there except that it takes a very short burst to do that and then apparently the residual magnetization in the drill bit continues the motion. 

When applied to motors this would be the scenario. Rotor Magnet attracts to stator iron toroid (probably not necessary to be a toroid) at TDC very brief 6-9V pulse magnetizes the iron toroid pushing the magnet away, push continues until iron toroid stator is out of range or demagnetizes. 

I'm guessing the optimum would be to tailor the materials, dimensions and rpm to maximize the use of the residual magnetism of the stator such that none is wasted and none contributes to resistance to the next stator attraction event. It would be interesting to test both a toroid and an equal mass of the same material to see if any advantage was obtained by the toroid shape. 

Reversing polarity of each magnet such that any residual magnetism was used for the next attraction event might add to efficiency. One possible toroid advantage might be the negation of residual magnetism effects resistance to the next magnet attraction if the magnets are the same polarity.

Caution from Steorn

On December 28, 2009 1:39 AM Mountain, Sean McCarthy, CEO of Steorn wrote:

Thanks for that - however I must urge some caution here, what Jean-Louis will find is that all of his electrical input is being output as heat and that the work done by the rotor is free. However this does not mean that simply putting in a generator will enable him to close the loop. 

The reason is that the design of the 'active' coils is very important so that the input uses minimum current to cause the effect in question - the production of heat is a current^2 relationship. Unless this fact is considered in the design of the input, then while the system may be more than 100% efficient, the work done by the rotor will be less than the energy input into the system, and so a closed loop system will not be possible. 

Our next sequence of experiments will address these issues. 

We are quite happy to discuss this in more detail with Jean if he has further interest in replication (two of our engineers are French, so they should be able to communicate well).
