This is a very cool application of our range of solenoid valves - James has engineered a house water supply to pool filter return line. The solenoid sits between two check valves and a flow meter, running off the line to garden irrigation.
James was concerned about missing a pool link - the solution was our 240v valve wired into a relay. The valve can be manually opened and closed manually on the internet across a z-wave network. When the pool sensor detects a low level, it activates properly, flicks the relay like a switch and the relay activates the valve.
Thank you to James for letting us know about your project! #solenoidvalve#engineering#project#industrial#240v#automation
No more electric shocks - this Rube Goldberg contraption is my turns counter for pickup winding - a magnet fixed to the shaft of the winding machine passes by the reed switch (behind a piece of plastic) and trips the counter. The reed switch has 240V on it and used to be sellotaped to the top of the piece of MDF (because I was prototyping different switches and counters). I only zapped myself twice but, after the second time I moved the switch behind this little window..!
One day I'll make a more stylish looking counter... #electronics#coilwinding#240v#pickupwinding#guitarpickups#guitarrepair
Perkeleesti se 240V tuntuu kun änkee sormet pimeenä sohvan takaa tietämättään rikkoontuneeseen pistokkeeseen (etsiessään sinne tippunutta tabletia) ja tolta se näyttää kun sähköt tulee kädestä ulos. Onneksi taisi käsivarsi koskea sälekaihtimien ketjuun josta myös tuo viivamainen jälki.. eipä kerenny sähköt sydämeen asti... tai siis.. ainakin olen vielä hengissä! Voi v... vois tässä vaiheessa sanoa. Fkng pelottavaa ja epämiellyttävää!
December sun ☀️ love the light angles of winter. Also love upgrading people’s EV charging outlets, standard 120v gives a tesla about 3-5miles of range per hour of charge the new stainless steel 240v we installed gives the same car about 25-30miles per hour of charging. Also the new 240v outlet is much safer because it’s beefy and designed to be used for larger items ie EV car battery. The standard 120v outlet is really designed for small items ie iPhones, LED TV’s, holiday lights... you get the point. A big ev battery needs a beefy outlet. #bestevplugs#chargefromhome#240v
Gotta say this is a first for me. I got an air compressor from a guy that had left it outside for years #itdead . There was SOOoOo much rust!! The motor was awesome. It had a wasp nest nicely integrated in it! Needless to say this beast was gonna take a serious restoration.
Is it a profitable project? No, not really no. But seriously I love getting sweet deals on stuff and restoring it to great condition. It’s seriously one of my fav pastimes.
I’ll put some more pics on another post.
