Light Cycle Videos

Today we bring you six (6!) new videos on the light cycle.  They include: a basic demonstration of operation, a demonstration of a “light stick” LED flashlight, some metering options with the Light Cycle, and an explanation running the Light Cycle with a load.

Thanks to Ron Parigoris for the build and Wayne Gutschow for the camerawork!

1) Light Cycle being demonstrated and described in it’s simplest configuration with no Electrical Box, just running two Haiti LEDs off a 6 foot extension cord with no battery

2) Light Stick being demonstrated and explained (error in video, the  LEDs are in parallel, not series)

3) Light Cycle being demonstrated and described configured with option A Electrical Box (Whatt Meter and Harbor Freight Volt Amp Meter), battery on ground being charged

4) Light Cycle being demonstrated and described configured with option B Electrical Box (Whatt Meter only) with Haiti battery mounted on the port generator swing arm (no bungee required)

5)  Light Cycle being demonstrated and described configured with option C Electrical Box charging battery on chair using only a Volt Meter (with clamp on Amp Meter verification)

6) Light Cycle being demonstrated and described running various loads and also charging a Harbor Freight jump start pack using only the analogue Volt Meter integral to the pack

Light Cycle version 2 built

This last week my dad, Michael Dauenhauer and I built the second version of the light cycle.  We now have it installed at the IncSys office.

We based it off of the original design by Brian Waldron (a Gonzaga University student) and Dr. Robin Podmore.  We stuck mostly to the plans but have added a few improvements.
