after i solder the magnet wire for that circuit board, are you going to i solder the wires? and which wire opponents onto are you going to within the introduced connection. please helppp thanks
I desired apart a Iomega zip drive lately and it also had numerous interesting parts which can be present in this project, including two coils and a lot of spring loaded arms. The plastic situation can make it easier to utilize personally i don’t feel badly to think about apart a difficult disk. All I had been after was the quiet motor. )br / br / Can create a pic if anybody’s interested.br / -flashjbr /
Have you are receiving up to now as generating helpful power by using this, maybe charging power packs?br /
Honestly i’ve was without the actual at assembling any project in the last 8 a few days, however’ve been considering revisiting this project lately when using the voice coil within the laptop HD, wishing it might have lower inertia.nbsp Need low current drop diodes too. br /
I’d a concept for almost any vaguely-helpful applicationbr / blockquote divBuild the coil, magnets and LEDs (and perhaps an expense-store, like a battery or supercapacitor) in a single unit that pegs lower, along with the ribbon could possibly get offer the man-points in the tent./div /blockquoteblockquote divThe ribbon flutters away at night time, illuminating the LEDs and stopping people tripping over your guy ropes./div /blockquotebr / Ideal for festivals, I assumed.br /
That’ pretty awesome, a fast google shows solarbotics sells some nice low current drop diodesnbsp (.22 V @ 20ma).nbspnbspnbsp Hmm, winter break is arriving. br /
Can’t perhaps you have going out and twiddling your thumbs, can now we?br /
The quantity of an amazing concept. Maybe it may be also present in cars, in-front in which the radiator is, since the vehicle is moving it might generate capability to light all of the little lights or even charger..
Used to also moving magnet windbelt :internet.youtube.orgOrview?sixth is vEquals8ulPtmmVelIbr/Hard disk coil i could have less current output br/
Very awesome. Aeroelastic flutter is totally new for me. I like it!
Hi that’s so awesome excellent method of wind power! i’m wondering in case you could place the wind belt horziontal? ***** Congratulations!!br/
For me personally you’ll be able to. It shouldnt produce a marked improvement in output
On another Windbelt thread, these were speaking on how to employ this. If there’s a terrific way to boost the current, one factor you think about is charging batteries to operate your doorbell. Someone stated lately that doorbell transformers use 3 watts. That’s 26kw hrs each year. So possibly a couple of bucks year. In case you could build one for $5 it might repay (although not for your time). I don’t understand how much juice thermostats use, but that could be a great use too, for the same reason, since i have have have bet they normally use a transformer too.
The tricky part is how would you obtain a really cheap small, 24V battery bank. Another, outdoors use for almost any scaled up device would be to charge batteries for almost any fence charger. Convenient since you’ve already stood a frame to mount it on, i’m certain fence chargers are frequently found well within the grid. I’m wondering if there isn’t some coil that carries much more activates it that allows you to obtain a greater current to begin with. Alternatively, in situation your coil or magnet really was light you’ll be able to mount it round the longer arm. (Opposite side of pivot inside the ribbon.) And perhaps there’s a method to make use of the brushless motors inside the computer for the same factor, even though the radius very can be not big enough. For me the standard voice coil mechanics weigh more than they must be, although I haven’t examined any for some time, so possibly some careful grinding may help?
Oh, more stuff I assumed of: -You’ll be able to maybe build something light and floppy like a tuna tail to operate this. In case you got the oscillation right I’ll bet it might released much more power. Or maybe a cantilevered plane wing produced gadget, which maybe could stick up a extended ways. You’d have to tune the flutter right. Details left for that readers. -p
Appears appreciate it may have a distinctive frequency too. Ya know like 60 cycle current has.
Pretty Awesome Stuff. I’ve Never observed that Before.
Oh wow. Before i began it it came out as if it had been powering a laser pointer pointing straight lower. . Nice
yeah, Now it’s time cutting something in the paper sheet obtaining a laser
Great Instructable! I had been attempting to build the Frayne-style windbelt, however’m glad I stumbled upon that particular. Much simpler, along with the effects were much better than I used to be expecting. I made one for sophistication and could obtain a pretty consistent 1.5-2. volts (peak of two.9) in excellent Oklahoma wind (sustained 20mph gusts to 35). I in addition soldered up a whole wave rectifier and ran it having a 1000uf 3.5v capacitor and could charge it to three.44 volts within 50 seconds. Awesome! Some observations while creating my windbelt: 1. Don’t assume all HDDs offer a similar experience, some have bigger magnets or better wiring. Basically remember properly, For me Western Digital had the very best mixture of thick magnets, protective plating for the wire, and simple-to-solder leads. 2. To avoid rubbing, I stumbled upon it had been easier to align the actuator arm and magnets basically just cut the Hard disk frame over the magnet and bearing screw hole locations. I Then simply zip-tied the entire setup for that wood frame. 3. To boost the amplitude (swing arc) within the coil side, I reduce your readers arms near to singleOr4 extended and attached the tape there. 4. Due to the size limit (2ft.) using this project, I stumbled upon the loose tuning labored best. 5. Whatever tuning produced a extended swing arc came out may be the finest answer, although the VCR tape this produced lots of noise. I happened upon some 1 wide nylon-reinforced packing tape however the add the load and thickness stored the noise lower without slowing the fluttering action lots of. 6. The looser tuning (and thus lower switching rate) also labored better with my plain-jane plastic diodes, as Schottky diodes -while better- came out difficult to get. To summarize, it absolutely was my first-time building an instructable (and soldering for instance), and it also demonstrated up in this region great! Thanks TUA!
Thanks roo2, that’s the most effective compliment, i l just like your mods.
that may work you may create a self sustaining fan.
Excellent work. Moving into a larger rise I’m able to get good results within my balcony. Fractional laser treatments, from junk, has incredible potential within my humble opinion. Let me tell clothes lines generating power while drying your clothes or some kinds of trees becoming power plants round the windy day. The options are endless. Any repetitive tugging action might be utilized and you’re not limited to wind only or any particular setup. I love it.
Please ignore a few in the previous comment. It’s still thrilling, however see since the tuning is critical, restricting or in the best altering the options.
Where i must conect a wire for that voice coil? will you’ve got a close-up pic.
A great instructable! What is the method of figure the quantity of amps may be created by using this setup? Congratulations again!
Really Really awesome.
i still cant know how the power is created can any1 help.may i contain the do-it-yourself response to build one at all like me a digital enthusiast.thanks this project seems to obtain worth built
Generally, or even in this particular unique situation? In case you move a wire utilizing a magnetic field gifts are created (clearly the motion is relative so the situation may be reversed). The HD magnet has one north face the other south face around the sides half the coil is completed north of manchester, half within the south, once the coil moves gifts are caused both in side within the coil, viola, electricity. Because it’s oscillating backward and forward AC current may be the output.
I had been just wondering the way you connect the wires for that voice coil. Thanks
There’s two small solder joints across the small circuit board connected to the voice coil, I carefully used them.
Very, excellent. possibly putting this sort of factor inside the roof of your home may be nice. try getting energy within the flapping flag. they aren’t illegal yet! appreciate discussing around. healthy! joe
Perhaps you have thought much about forcing an analog tuner using this? I’m thinking a correctly-balanced bar round the pivot, each finish within the bar just like a weight. The responsibility facing from the question might be a shape (scoop or sail maybe?) that will catch the wind. In the side within the pivot bar in the 90deg position might be another bar obtaining a gear about this. Give a gear for that pencil tuner you’ve here, and you’ll maybe possess the balanced bar system to make belt to tighten or release because the wind speed increases/decreases. In case you could gear it right you might have the belt tuned for that correct frequency for almost any given wind speed, and for that reason wouldn’t need to adjust it by hands.
Made 1 inch a couple of hrs and managed .9 volts. We used a significantly shorter time period of tape and my setup alignment left much to obtain preferred and so i realize that we may get more. I’ve had an image showing .6volts within my multi meter. I could a Compaq coil since they are huge along with the tape was unable to maneuver it. It may be my insufficient setup skill or it truly might be that you’ve a vital mass in which the tape cannot progressively gradually slowly move the coil. Many things to have a look at.
Brilliant idea (no pun intended). You’ll win the Introduced contest. Is niagra invention found in massive elsewhere? I’ve belief that within the eve from the large energy crisis, any proven fact that results in the introduction of a musical instrument to produce functional energy as opposed to lower the sink it’s very valuable. Cheers!
i heard a noise. the flutter noise. what is the method of silence it?
In case you begin to see the thread a rel=nofollow href=internet.instructables.com/forum/TZ7K4K6F7PCMVR3/here/a the person who really developed the idea – Shawn Frayne leaves a publish speaking relating to this, one factor he highlights is br/br/quot-After testing out several generations within the small, 45.5 cm extended windbelts, I’ve determined the easiest method to reliably ensure they are run silently. Really quiet, like a leaf within the breeze quiet. In order that it’s possible on individuals scale certainly. across the bigger scales, well, let’s condition that’s a little happening.quotbr/br/Sounds promising. br/
thanks, done that, it truly does work great now. XD i came across that accidentally while allowing the wind chime, the higher i result in the belts the quieter it’s. thanks alot.
I doubt you’re going so that you can silence it. no under completely. Up to now as I’ll just tell – this is often generated using the wobbling within the band. But however, most generators have excess energy radiated as noise. Hmmmm I question the amount noise you need to achieve produce a substantial charge in say, a condenser type mic 😛
callmeshane made an appearance to get right! it’s the resonance making the belt flutter. (see resonance) personally, i can not stand windchimes. maybe i can tune the flutter to make a introduced wind flutter thingamajig. i there is a big open space and it also’s windy at manila at night time. hope this may work. consider. could this charge a 1farad supercap? thanks!
From what I’ll just tell. yes? Using the author – he’s getting 1.5v Well, I suppose the treatment depends around the needed steps to charge the supercap (I haven’t had the chance to locate any information. The only real factor I’d be worried about is essentially that you simply’d require an AC/Electricity ripping toolsOrtransformer, methinks (I’m confident caps are Electricity). You’ll be able to most likely make one your own personal too.
