    Hi Mike,

    I dig the pile of paperwork, but I couldn't find it. Anyway I found the Clevedon and a piece of Stuart (I guess).
    Please find them in the attachment.

    Anyway, I have a Clevedon unit (I bought it during the weekend together with a Cheddar Puffin).
    I don't want it. If I need any type of steam electronic control I use Denes Design.

    Like the Gas Controller:

    Hi,

    I just had a bit of update on the Simple Water Level Sensor.

    Now you can connect it to a receiver, so it become a plug and play tool. Put the sensor on the sight glass than connect the servo connector to any unused slot on the receiver, plus don't forget to connect a power supply to the receiver like battery 4.8V or 6V and it is ready to run.
    It is good to identify that the water level is below the sensor level in the boiler.
    In this case the red led switches ON and you have two options:
    1. take the boat out of the water and refill the boiler
    2. have an electronic pump in your boat and switch it on by an RC switch with a relay (use any switching arm on your transmitter) when the red LED switches OFF count till ten and you can switch OFF the pump.

    Here is the video:

    Dear Gents,

    This is a simple solution for steam boat or steam engine modellers.
    You can set the sensor to the minimum level of water on your boiler, play with the boat on the water, and when the LED switches ON you still have enough time to remove the boat from the water to refill it.
    Or you can switch the electric pump or the pump control servo by from your radio transmitter, if the LED is OFF you wait a couple of seconds and you can switch the pump/pump control servo OFF.
    It has a water bouncing system, so the LED won't blinking when the water goes up and down in the sight glass, or if there is a moving water bubble.

    Hi Gents,

    Here is the 3rd video.
    I think it is worth to watch all 3.

    The amount of the mist is pretty impressive plus there is a modulation of the puff-ing frequency and the strength.

    Hi Fred,

    The size is:
    50*60*70mm
    It is 70mm high, but the water tank is 35mm plus the funnel holder is another 35mm.

    But it can be smaller ๐Ÿ˜Š
    The fnnel size is 12mm OD and 10mm ID 125mm long plastic tube.

    Hi Rod,

    I don't think that is a really good idea to play with the oil based thing.
    I'm not really about the heated element idea in my boat.

    The cheap Chinese ultrasonic sounder disc etc...
    I played with that too.
    I found the issue, what causing that problem, I just had to create my own driwing circuit and connect both driving circuits to the oscilloscope, and figured out that my circuit is much better.
    The Chinese one is just stop running for approx a minute and it is running again for two minutes and off again....

    Yes, I already had a customer from Canada, we used Royal Mail that time (nowadays I use Evri International, delivery time is approx 10 days), it was OK and we had tracking., but please send an email to Design.Denes@gmail.com and we can discuss the details there.

    Regards

    Hi Rod,

    The company is based in the UK. A bit closer in Gloucestershire.
    The company is small.
    It is just me and this is a part time job for me.

    It is a pure water Steam/Smoke Generator, which is taking the signal from the receiver throttle channel and able to work along with the speed controller, there is an extra pin header where you can connect the speed controller you no need to put an "Y" cable anywhere.

    There are 4 working modes.
    It is able to run longer than an hour.

    I attached an article from Richard Simpson.

    Regards
    Denes

    Good Morning Gents,

    I was thinking on how I can upgrade the Steam Generator.
    My maximum I can add a Middle Set Button.

    What do you think?

    Hi,

    One of my friend asked me to design a Water control unit for him.
    It has to be able to:
    - identify the water levein the boiler through the sight glass
    - able to reduce the effect of the air bubbles and the water bouncing
    - control a servo wich is able to open or close the mechanical water pump
    - control an electric water pump as an option
    - able to measure the feeder tank water level
    - should have a signaling option, like an Alert Led

    You can watch the video here:
