Description

The Solenoid Beam Engine Kit is a vertical single “cylinder” beam engine kit with an acrylic frame, flywheel and a solenoid piston. The Solenoid Beam Engine Kit is completely electronically controlled. Piston timing comes from an opto interrupter cam on the  axle and speed regulation comes from the small embedded CPU.This give a wide range of running speeds  adjustable with a pair of push buttons behind the engine to increase/decrease the speed of the engine. A 12v battery box is provided that fits under the engines stage.

The Beam engine has a complete Watt parallel linkage on the solenoid side and the beam and central pillar is engraved to mirror the embellishments found on Victoria engineering.

It is capable of running from 5-18V supply with an average current draw as low as 20mA, and comes complete with 12 x M5 nuts and bolts around the flywheels giving added weight for smoother slower running, just like the real thing.
