The Lox generators designed by the Alterra rise above the ship/city they are housed within and deploy petal-like emitters around a central core. Once the weapon's capacitor is fully charged, they unleash an orange lightning that can damage multiple targets if they are close enough for the 'lightning' to arc from one to another.
Anubis's Mothership used a large, inefficient version of an Ancient Lox Generator as its primary weapon, with the ship's central pillar housing the weapon.
Atlantis contains 6 lox generators, while each Columnar-class Ancient warship contains 4. Those in Atlantis are of a slightly more powerful version.
