That is cool! five star and a favorite!


Neat looking! Does this use a pneumatics set?


I have use two Lego Education Pneumatic Add-On Sets (9641)


Pressure gauge, shutoff sensor, pressure release, and pumping mechanism. Everything a compressor could have. I guess I'll just have to give it five stars.


Nice improvement on my original design! That is the touch sensor on top for?


Hi NXDave, thank you for the comment. The Touch sensor on the top is for starting de program.

This is a small Lego compressor, consisting of two small pumps and a small piston for pressure monitoring. The system of the compression unit and the pressure sensor is from ,,NXDave''. I built my version here, and i have wrote a program and an instruction manual. The Compression unit: The compression unit comprises a NXT-Motor, two small pumps, a small piston, two touch sensors, two air tanks, a pressure gauge(Manometer) and two switches. The Control Unit: The control unit is a NXT-Brick with two switches for additional tasks. The Program + Building-instruction: The program includes an auto-stop system at elevated pressure (2.5 bar), a temperature warning system at long use (3 minutes) and a contolsystem if a motor is connected. I have attached a LDD file and some pictures. The program comes, because i cannot upload the program :-(
