Thread: How does the sunwayman Variable output work

  1. #1

    Default How does the sunwayman Variable output work

    Does anyone have pics of a sunwayman taken apart? (one with the varialbe output)
    Does the rotating action just function as a potentiometer,
    or does it use some kind of magnetic sensor?

    I am thinking about moding one of these into a laser,
    and need to know how the adjustment works,
    and if I will be able to use it.

    Thanks!

    The ring has 2 small magnets at 180 degrees on its inner periphery. The magnetic fuel is detected on the little circuit board inside the body.

    I have actually made a custom ring that only needed 1 magnet which was slightly larger.

    Cool thanks,
    Do you know if the Circuit that reads the magnetic field outputs an analog voltage or a PWM signal?
    Is the magnetic sensor on the same PCB as the driver?

    Thanks for your help!

    Not sure if it is analog or PWM. I could meassure the voltage - I suspect it is analog but I might be wrong.

    There is only circuit board - combined driver and magnetic field detector.
